So Here I Am

So Here I AM


“I cry for help, whisper a plea

Whimper within the squall

Sobbing on bended knee

Hear me as I call


I’m lost dear God, astray from grace

So fearful to die

So anxiously I seek Your face

In Jesus’ name on high


I’ve read Your Word and understand

Christ Jesus died for me

That if I seek his guiding hand

He’ll set my spirit free


Your Word reveals I’m doomed to die

Through sin I’m tightly bound

Yet through The Blood of Christ on high

Salvation may be found


So here I am and hear I kneel

In faith I humbly pray

Upon my life Lord place Your Seal

And change my ways this day


Be now my Lord be now my King

My refuge and reward

Allow me too on eagle’s wing

Flee now Your vengeful sword


Be faithful as Your Word dictates

Remain Your Promise true 

Lay wide dear God Salvation’s Gates

And let me safely through


I know I’m asking much of You

I know I’ve done much wrong

But through Your grace and birth anew

I too may sing life’s song”.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
