Love's a Many Splendid Thing.....

Love's a Many Splend Thing


Love’s an overwhelming healing force

A refuge in a storm

Running often its awesome course

Great wonders to perform


Love those; love those for whom Christ died

On others richly impart

Give and give until multiplied

It changes another’s heart


Love is many a splendid thing

Flowing like a stream

So sweet’s the pleasure will it bring

Beyond our wildest dream


It’s always right and never wrong

Correct in every way

Sing to the world its wondrous song

And make content the day


For God is love and love is true

And though it may sound odd

If one gives true love so to you

They give to you my God


Give it freely, give up a lot

Replace the enemy’s darts

Give to those who may have forgot

What power love imparts


Let friend and foe be reconciled

Let courting sweethearts kiss

Warmly tenderly let a child

Bring loving parents bliss


Never unseemly no mistake

A simile sweet bouquet

A sound good night sweet to awake

Our Father’s sheep astray.....

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.
