Thank You Father

† † † † Thank you father

ďI felt quite lost, in deep distress

My life in fact was such a mess

Friendless forlorn devoid of love

I sought for guidance God above

The day we met, was sheer delight

I thank my God who gave me sight

You gave to me what none can buy

I know in Christ Iíll never die

When first I heard my masterís voice

You made my heart and soul rejoice

You spoke of things Iíd never heard

Revealing me your precious word

You took the doubt You cleansed my heart

Right then; I knew weíd never part

From there my life is not the same

I bless the day Your Spirit came

To please Your Son Iíve truly tried

Though when Iíve failed how much I cried

The devil tries with huge deceit

But peace Iíve found at Jesusí feet

You know the name of every child

You saw me while still running wild

You set me free, You made me whole

Sweet love and joy floods now my soul

Throughout my life Iíve felt Your hand

Yet only now! I understand

The gift of faith You gave to me

Has torn the veil and made me see

How can I pay for all Youíve done?

Your Holy Gh You spoke of things Iíd never heard

Revealing me your precious word

You made my heart and soul rejoice

You spoke o things Iíd never heard

Revealing me your precious word

You took the doubt You cleansed my heart

Right then; I knew weíd never part

From there my life is not the same

I bless the day Your Spirit came

To please Your Son Iíve truly tried

Though when Iíve failed how much I cried

The devil tries with huge deceit

But peace Iíve found at Jesusí feet

You know the name of every child

You saw me while still running wild

You set me free, You made me whole

Sweet love and joy floods now my soul

Throughout my life Iíve felt Your hand

Yet only now! I understand

The gift of faith You gave to me

Has torn the veil and made me see

How can I pay for all Youíve done?

Your Holy Ghost, Your faithful Son

I aim to serve with all my might

I thank my God Iíve seen the Light.....

† † † Thank you father

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.
