Stand by Your Man

Stand by Your Man


Uphold, your shepherd’s hand in prayer

Show each in Christ how much you care

When work is shared by all at hand

Shepherds so helped are sure to stand


It’s Satan’s ploy to take the head

For once removed the flock will shed

But when in Christ we stand one man

United; we’ll foil the devil’s plan


Yet some may think that they should stand

Though but one king can rule a land

Humble yourself while still you might

Then help your shepherd win the fight


God’s house holds not a one man’s show

From but one drop no rivers flow

Though single tears true saints have cried

From such Christ forms His righteous bride


A church can stand or it can fall

To serve is still Salvation’s call

God’s work is there for “ALL” to do

Not just left to the same old few


Best stand as one give God your best

The Lord’s sure to do the rest

Good fruit will grow throughout the vine

Then all who serve may drink life’s wine


To stand as one should all agree

To rid our selves each one of “ME”

For “ME” is self and good for nought

No one’s their own we’ve all been bought


Stand by your man, stand true erect

Look first to Christ then His elect

Lend each a hand when asked of you

Many are called God chooses few.....

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.
