Come as You Are

Come as You Are


“Come though laden though burdened down

All sinners deep distressed

Obtain from me a golden crown

Receive eternal rest


Come take, hold fast Salvation’s hand

In righteousness walk free

Come you who fail to understand

Receive love’s eyes to see


Come now and leave all else behind

Take up and bear your cross

Give me your life and soon you’ll find

In truth you’ll bear no loss


Come as you are wretched and torn

Give up your filth and shame

Become through Christ a child reborn

Receive a brand new name


Come walk with Christ on waters deep

Cast off your doubts and fears

Though for a while you may yet weep

Through love will dry your tears


Come buy my silver buy my gold

Heed well The Truth I say

Take all my treasures you can hold

There’s nought for you to pay


Come live my love I’ll make you whole

I’ve much with you to share

Delight my child your lonely soul

On all my riches fare


Stand firm in Christ throughout the fight

Hold firm your Saviour’s hand

Receive life’s robe of shimmering Light

Come reign with Christ my 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.
