Because of Grace


Thank You, thank You Almighty One

For all You’ve had to give

For Christ Your Lamb, Jesus Your Son

Who died that I may live     


You did it all, the earth to see

The world to look inside

You gave your all to set man free

On Heaven’s Wind to glide


Because of grace, through selfless love

You showed the world You care

That man may fly beyond above

Eternity to share


To eat, to drink, embrace at will

The facts to see and feel

Such is the joy such is the thrill

Once Christ becomes one real


Can anybody hear me?

Will someone lend an ear?

Humble oneself the facts to see

The Truth who’s ever near


A helping hand a word, a kiss

A blessing rich and true

Who but fools would willingly miss?

This Gift of Heaven’s Dew


Selfless, obedient, love divine

To hungry souls sweet fare

Blissfully Yours, gratefully mine

How can a soul compare?


Master, Comforter, Teacher supreme 

Leader righteous and true

Guiding beyond one’s wildest dream

To life my God with You.....

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.
