Through Christ, Your Word creation’s made

The sun stars land and sea

Forevermore never to fade

Are children just like me


Whatever colour, size or shape

Life’s everywhere to view

Yet from the truth there’s no escape

You made but man, like You


A little below the angels still

The world at his command

So it was our Father’s will

But now it’s not as planned


For man fell short and far much worse

Your Word he disobeyed

Suffering so Your deadly curse

As is today displayed


Today creation moans and groans

Below and high above

Weak and sick, man’s flesh and bones

Seek endlessly for love


Both day and night for You we cry

Each single day we live

Praying until the day we die

Our former life You give


Adam was never meant to fail

Nor Eve his wife the same

Till on their eyes was placed a veil

As Satan’s ruse to shame


Six thousand years, fooled people stand

Where few have learned to see

That man through You; may understand

That love through faith makes free.....

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.
