Have you ever turned a lamp on?

God’s word to read at night

Spend thought about Gods living Son

God’s Lamb & life’s true Seed


Ever gave thought of Heaven’s Light

Round closing of the day

Of those still lost who just well might

Have need to find The Way


While numerous times light has played

Many a noble part

No greater when it can invade

Cleansing a sinful heart


When warriors wait the rapture

Where darkness floods the land

Lurking shadows seek to capture

The lamps in Jesus’ hand


While servants at The Master’s feet

See Christ as Lord and friend

The shady foe will seek to beat

When learning light to bend


Life’s Light’s a tool of The Master

Through which the righteous see

For fending off each disaster

The devil seeks to be


Whether humble, weak,  strong or bright

Through truth we understand

A child of God fears no light

Fashioned through Jesus’ hand


Woe to the dark, hell’s evil horde

That would God’s camp invade

So says The living Christ & Lord

God’s Lamp that will not fade…..

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.
