Awake Arise & See.....

Awake Arise & See


Is God a man a man may fool?

Finite as all we see

Could Satan fashion such a tool

To thwart The King to be


Was this the reason of the tree?

The ruse he’d use to win

Or Jesus’ means to victory

To rid the world of sin


Is not The King of Heaven real?

The Lord almighty true

Is not His powerful arm to feel?

And still today to view!


The fool will say there is no God

The blind deceived will doubt

By faith we see and feel His rod

His strong right arm so stout


By grace alone mankind will live

By faith alone we see

Trusting what Heaven has to give

Hoping for that to be


By faith alone we understand

By faith alone we feel

Trusting in God’s almighty hand

The Lord will all reveal


Right here right now this can be done

Witnessed by all mankind

When trusting in The Father’s Son

A child’s no longer blind


Awake and see The Truth of Him

Wisdom cannot deny

Arise with eyes no longer dim

And trust Jesus on high.....

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.
