You Say You Love Me (1)

You Say You Love Me (1)


Often you say you love me

And be forever true

At times you even bend your knee

To seek my Father’s view


You live your life walking your path

Doing just as you please

But when you think of Heaven’s wrath

You bend your shameful knees


You say “But Jesus Lord I love You

For me You’re always there

Forgive the evil things I do

And show You truly care”


You’ll come to worship Sunday morn

With bible in your hand

Baptised; you think you’ve been reborn

But fail to understand


I want your heart I want your soul

Your talents love and time

I want my child to make you whole

Regardless of your crime


You say you love The Lamb I sent

My Son who chose to die

Yet still from sin you won’t repent

Or seek true grace on high


You want my love, you want to live

You want of Heaven’s Dew

But fail to use the gifts I give

To bless my faithful few


You praise me in the songs you sing

You pray a while each day

But truly if I’m Lord and King

Why don’t you then obey?.....

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.
