Because I Love You

Because I Love You

鼎ome out from there heed my command

Obey; then I will heal your land

Waters will part I値l turn the tide

If you accept to be my bride

I am the Lord, righteous and just

You need my help I want your trust

I値l take your shame I値l take your doubt

I値l give you faith, and kit you out

Come out, from all that filth you池e in

Give up your life, of wayward sin

Cast out, the devil痴 tempting thought

Believe in me and my report

A time will come, when on your own

With heavy heart your soul will groan

Yet look to me your God above

I値l not be slow to send my love

My Holy Ghost, to you I値l give

He値l guide and show you, how to live

He値l speak of me He値l take your fears

And comfort you, throughout your years

My gentle Spirit痴 full of love

He値l come to you, just like a dove

Repent from sin walk in The Light

Drink of The Truth receive true sight

Make Christ your Lord, for Christ is true

Be holy, for I知 holy too

My secret things, will Christ disclose

To you my child, my fragrant rose

Priceless things, I long to give

When you decide with Christ to live

Not one good thing will I withhold

From you who値l walk my streets of gold.....

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.
