Wake up My Child
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Wake up My Child


Wake up my child hear my Word

Open your eyes and see

Obey the wisdom you have heard

And set your neighbours free


Wake up and see the ways of hell

Wake up life’s dawn to greet

Arise in faith, receive and tell

Of Satan’s sweet deceit


I’ve chosen you to see The Light

To see and know The Way

To grow to stand to win life’s fight

And help my sheep astray


Arise my child tarry not long

Your time to serve has dawned

Go forth and sing Salvation’s song

So others may be warned


Warn of the pending judgement child

Warn of the devil’s path

Where rich and poor un-reconciled

Must face eternal wrath


Share! That The Lord your God is real

My living Word is true!

In righteousness to all reveal

The facts disclosed to you


Your name I’ve known before your birth

Your hand I placed in mine

Paved was the path you’d walk on earth

Through flesh and bone Divine     


Heed well dear child my royal command

As countless saints before

Help others walk The Promised Land

Into your Father’s Door.....

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.
