Hope in Jesus

†††††††† Hope in Jesus

Since first I sang Salvationís song

Iíve had my ups and downs

Iíve tried my best to do no wrong

But still Iíve raised some frowns

I love The Lord who saved my soul

Though times I may feel pain

Christ washed me clean He made me whole

Iím free and born again

By grace, Iím in SalvationĎs hand

The futureís plain to view

Through faith Iíve learned to understand

Godís love for me is true

In Jesus now Iím more than glad

We talk both night and day

I seek His joy when feeling sad

Whilst through His peace I pray

Iím growing old my hair is white

My blood is running thin

But praise the Lord for Truth and Light

For freeing me of sin

The world may say my life is through

How soon Iíll see my grave

Yet while Iím here Iíll share with you

That Christ your soul will save

Although of aged flesh and bone

Of death Iíve no more fear

For Jesus changed this heart of stone

And made my future clear

On Jesus Christ we can depend

Through Christ we learn to cope

Life, peace and joy will see no end

Because in Christ I hope.....Michael

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.
