Let's Celebrate!

“Let’s celebrate the death of death

Celebrate Jesus’ love

Who gives us life eternal breath

With Guarantee above

 

Let’s bow our knees lift up our eyes

Open our hearts of sin

Call out to He alone who’s wise

And bid Him come within

 

Let’s not be fools sluggish or proud

Regardless how we feel

Let’s flee instead the perishing crowd

With passion, faith and zeal

 

Let’s raise our hands to glorify

Our voices to praise His name

Our thoughts our deeds to magnify

Who cleanses souls of shame

 

Let’s waste no time for any

However rich or poor

Let’s leave the road of the many

And head for Heaven’s Door

 

Look neither left nor to the right

But fix our eyes above

Fervently and with great delight

Let’s follow Christ in love

 

Let’s stand let’s kneel let’s walk in prayer

Cry out seeking His face

Through Jesus all our sins declare

And every past disgrace

 

Let life be lived but not in vain

Show mercy and forgive

Renew your mind be born again

Forever more to live”…..

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.
