Come Rise with Me.....

Come Rise with Me

 

Ever give thought if God is true? 

Has a Son, yet has no wife                

If as a Lamb, Christ died for you

To give eternal Life

 

If truth would show, these facts are real

Christ is alive today

Although once dead, buried with seal

Is here! As Heaven’s Way

 

Would you believe, I’ve heard God’s voice

Christ Jesus voice as well

If God! Right no, would give the choice

To doubt! Or walk from hell

 

What will you think, what will you say?

Consider what to do

Remain as now, or Heaven’s Way

Reborn completely new

 

Perchance, whilst smiling, you’ll ponder

Toss and turn in your mind

Live, bound and lost, or free out yonder

Eternal Life to find

 

Come join with me, once just like you

Wondering what Life would bring

Doubting first, then changing my view

Once my soul began to sing

 

Believe this challenge I’m speaking

This promise you I give

Continue Life’s Gold Crown seeking

Eternally to live

 

God knows your weakness knows your strength

Knows you’ll need a hand

Jesus will go to any length

To rise in SALVATION’S LAND.....

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.
