You think Heaven has left you out

You say Christ passed you by

Reject; the devilís seed of doubt

And seek Godís face on high

The Word of God reveals us true

Who call upon His name

Godís Son will save, give birth anew

Purging oneís sin and shame

Godís face weíll find within His Word

True faith we gain as prize

His guiding voice is often heard

To open sightless eyes

Redemptionís eyes are never blind

God sees us all so clear

He knows just where each childís to find

However far or near

Heaven will no one cast aside

So no one needs to fear

Jesus to seek a righteous bride

Will send His Spirit here

What reason had Godís Lamb to die?

If not for one and all

Does this not mean both you and I?

If we will heed His call

God Lamp He sent to flood the earth

To free from Satanís jail

Whoíd bring their children first to birth?

Only to see them fail?

Too wise; is God to act this way

Too good, to let us die

So those who hear His voice today

Donít sit and wonder why?..... †

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.
