Anoint to Serve


Did they not see did they not know?

Did they not realise?

How far love is prepared to go

To silence Satan’s lies


To quash the devil’s foul deceit

Revealed a Lamb to all

Upon a cross bringing defeat

Causing the devil’s fall


Obedience showed how much You care

Beyond man’s wildest dream

Now countless come from everywhere

To drink from true love’s stream


Lord, fill our cups to overflow

To help the sheep still lost

Open more eyes allow them grow

Regardless of the cost


They’re ignorant to what they need

Of what we should believe

Till on The Truth they come to feed

And by Your grace receive


Equip more servants send them out

Enable more to share

The evidence to end the doubt

Of lost souls everywhere


Begin with those at Jesus’ feet

Let wisdom flood the mind

Let love and knowledge wax complete

To guide who wander blind


Speak out O God stretch forth Your hand

Anoint each servant’s head

So each may rise, go forth as planned

To raise the walking dead……

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.
