Amazing Love

         Amazing love

Each day in school we’d stand and pray

The psalms we’d learn and sing

Most teachers then would often say

God’s Son is Lord and King

 

No matter where my days were spent

What work I had to do

If there I stayed or there I went

Jesus; would turn up too

 

In married life I wasn’t spared

My running was in vain

The child of God who’s life I’ve shared

Brought Jesus once again

 

How strange the Seed of life is spread

How man receives the rain

When Christ becomes one’s daily bread

When free from tie and chain

 

For on the day my child was born

A miracle of life

My heart beheld Salvation’s dawn

Right there; beside my wife

 

God’s holy ways are strange in deed

My child unlocked the door

Now forth had come God’s planted Seed

Sown many years before

 

I bless the days I spent in school

The times I thought to hide

For then God’s Seed, life’s living Jewel

Was planted deep inside

 

Salvation, through true grace and love

Revealed The Father’s plan

Reborn to live with God above

The greatest gift to man......

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.
