Heaven Alone
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Heaven Alone

 

Jesus alone has life to give

Alone such grace impart

When Heavens’ Promise comes to live

And heals a sinful heart

 

Through selfless love on Calvary’s Tree

Through blood Christ Jesus gave

From Satan’s chains God sets us free

And saves us from the grave

 

By faith through trust through saving grace

Obedience until death

Repentant souls may see the face

Of He who gives us breath

 

But who will Christ as King receive

Accept as Lord and Friend

Allow their sinful souls believe

To learn and comprehend

 

This world can only give so much

From books its scholars teach

Failing in fact to keep in touch

What Truth alone can reach

 

God’s secrets; faith alone can see

Facts of our Makers’ hand

Truth of which can guarantee

Truly to understand

 

Yet who of us will bow our head

Consider things unseen

Believe in He who once was dead

And let Him intervene

 

Who’ll lend God an attentive ear?

Who’ll trust His Lamb and Son?

Surrender God, doubt and fear

To see life’s battles won.....

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.
