The Hope of Glory.....

The Hope of Glory

 

When Heaven’s Glory’s in one’s heart

The Hope of life will dwell

Allowing each a brand new start

To walk from death and hell

 

Through faith we have! God’s Guarantee

Through trust, life’s place is won

Through love, God’s granted you and me

Through Christ His Lamb & Son

 

Not from outside has one to grow

Once Christ has set us free

From inside out spirits should flow

That Heaven’s lost sheep may see   

 

No longer do we wonder why

When faith has opened eyes

To He who chose for us to die

With Him one day to rise

 

So is the mystery of Heaven’s plan

God’s secret Paul revealed

God’s Promise given mortal man

For you and I unsealed

 

The Hope Of Glory’s mine and yours

Life’s crown of brilliant gold

The Key to open Heaven’s Doors

Just as the prophets told

 

Wonderful is The Father’s love

The power of His might

Transforming sinners now above

From darkness into The Light

 

Oh Lord dear God who’d have thought

That we would find such grace

When cleansed when saved when Spirit taught

We’ll see God’s Holy face.....

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.
