Crying in the Rain

††† Crying in the rain

ďMy God I come in deep distress

Disturbed I kneel in pain

To You in prayer I now confess

Whilst crying in the rain

I cry these loud these sombre tears

In life Iím so alone

Faithful I served You many years

But now Iím on my own

Through sin, my shame is hard to bear

I know Youíve seen it all

But at the time I didnít care

So now Iím bound to fall

I vowed to walk lifeís righteous Way

But sinned these many times

So now because I chose to stray

Iíll answer for my crimes

Iíve no excuse my God to give

Iím guilty through and through

Yet still through faith I pray to live

Now swearing to be true

I know Iíve said it all before

It seems as though Iíve lied

Iím so afraid Youíve closed Your door

To leave me die outside

From grace, my God I dread to leave

From Christ, Iím sad to go

Afraid forever more to grieve

For still I love You so

Eternity; without Your Son

My life would be in vain

I hate the foolish sin Iíve done

Whilst crying in the rain.....

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.
