Give Yourself

Whether we live whether we die

Without Godís Lamb weíll wonder why?

But those in Christ can sleep at night

For peace abounds within The Light

Godís Son gives joy the world canít give

Eternal life through grace to live

Though problems in the world are found

Godís promise is for higher ground

The world may wear a mocking smile

May taunt Godís children yet a while

But full of shame her scorn will cease

When Jesus comes and takes His peace

Salvationís dawn just loves to bring

To troubled hearts gay songs to sing

Sweet melodies of love so true

A foretaste of eternal dew

Let open hearts bring truth within

Allow Godís Spirit purge all sin

The Master died to save our soul

To change oneís mind and make us whole

Though Christ was dead yet now He lives

The keys of life to us He gives

As Groom Heíll come to claim His bride

Open your door, the lockís inside

Godís Spirit stakes His righteous claim

Purging the church of sin and shame

The world canít see the living Christ

Until herself sheís sacrificed

Give unto God bear no fear

See through faith the future clear

Walk true sweet bride give every care

Then join The Bridegroom in the airÖ..

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.
