What Wonder's This


What wonder’s this? How can it be?

A miracle indeed

Here today my eyes can see

The Lamb on which to feed


The Lamb tortured nailed to a tree

Innocence! crucified

The Living Lord, God Almighty

Resides with me inside


It’s true! Its fact! Salvation’s real!

What can I do but shout

With Heaven’s Fire within I feel

There’s no more room for doubt


I’ve had The Call! I’ve heard The Voice

So few have heard before

My mind’s made up I’ve made the choice

To enter Heaven’s Door


To treasures, with a crown of gold

Contentment joy and peace

A harvest which can not sold

Nor ever brought to cease


I speak The Truth I tell no lie

With heart with soul and might

Though once full sin condemned to die

I’ll rise in Fire & Light


I’ll fly! I’ll soar on wind and clouds

With countless voices sing

Above this world’s defiant crowds

Accompanied by The King


How great is He who planned it

Who died for you and me

Who’ll speak and single handed

Bring all these things to be…..

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.
