Raise grateful hands to God The King

To Christ His Lamb & Son

In spirit and truth let praises ring

For righteous work well done


Worship in truth The Living Christ

The Lord of hosts divine

The Lamb Salvation sacrificed

That Life be yours and mine


That Truth would come and wear a crown

God’s Light would shine within

Till walls of darkness tumble down

When love’s made dust of sin


Pray to The Lord to shine! His Light

To open blinded eyes

To show The Way to win life’s fight

And Path through Paradise


To where everything’s gratis free

To where God’s King and friend

Where that God gives to you and me

Will never come to end


Eternity to have and hold

Beyond the stars above

Where streets are made of purest gold

And everywhere is love


Praise He who’s Lord of you and I

Who lives to love and give

Who for our failures chose to die

That we believe and live


Bring glory to The King of kings

The Lamb who bore our pain

That we my rise on eagle wings

Forever with Him to reign…..

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.
