Sweet Pleasure


Inside, my God You’ve planted Seed

Inside You’ve sown true love

Inside You’ve given all I need

To live and rise above


Love as I’ve never seen before

Love as I’ve never known

Causing to fly causing to soar

To where He’s on the throne


With fire to warm, to cleanse to guide

To show me right from wrong

To heal my ailing soul inside

And teach to sing life’s song


Light revealing The Truth You say

The facts You have to tell

Showing my feet The Narrow Way

From death and darkest hell


Once dead, my God I’m so alive

Grafted within Life’s Root

Watered with love by grace to thrive

And bear such precious fruit


Should now my soul not give You praise?

My heart to You not cry

Should I not serve You all my days

Until the day I die


For have I not Your Promise Lord?

Your Word upon my life

Within my hand Salvation’s Sword

To end my every strife


Your Way is mine Your peace is mine

I’m rich beyond measure?

And through my Saviour’s blood divine

Eternity’s my pleasure…..

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.
