School Is Out

School Is Out

Religious studyís taught no more
Itís widely now the rule
But Godís laid wide another door
When His; was closed at school

Within Christís hand weíre Heavenís tools
Throughout the world can reach
Although weíre not allowed in schools
At home we still may teach

Though long at school Iíve been the head
My hands are tied I fear
Yet in the Lord Iím far from dead
My students now come here

I serve as those before have done
Since Christians were pursued
They taught of God, of Christ His Son
When truth was first endued

With mothers first I chose to speak
My message God made plain
Now parents and children come each week
Eternal life to gain

Many at first were full of doubt
But God had all in view
He knew when things would all work out
Iíd teach the parents too

I know that good can come from bad
Whateverís done in school?
In Christ weíll make the devil mad
If we donít play the fool

Others have heard about this scheme
Now all throughout the land
Weíve seen and know itís not a dream
God must have had it planned.....

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.
