Kneeling in Tears.....

Kneeling in Tears


As more and more I kneel and cry

My soul releases tears

Less children seek God’s grace on high

Though Jesus’ Coming nears


It may appear I’m loosing

For dying souls the fight

But those of Heaven’s choosing

I’m standing in The Light


Though heart and soul writhes in pain

Though yearning deep inside

The living Christ draws close again

To claim His faithful bride


Soon very soon He may appear

Shortly the world will see

When we arise who Jesus revere

Who’ve humbly bent their knee


Why else do I kneel why do I pray

Why do I moan & groan

If not by faith I’ll soar one day

When Jesus claims His own


I cry because of children lost

Because of sheep astray

Because The One who paid the cost

Has shown The Perfect Way


What here I sew I’ll also reap

What here I do is known

And so before I fall asleep

I’ll please who’s on the throne


I’ll live and do as God commands

Righting a life lived wrong

To all those here and far off lands

I’ll sing my Master’s song.....

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.
