The Only Way

The Only Way

Long is The Way to God is unveiled

Since on the cross His Lamb was nailed

But countless lost believe it odd

That just one Way will lead to God

The Way is Christ, there is no other

No bread or wine or virgin mother

No word no deed no holy cow

No counting beads or sacred vow

No silver, gold, idol of wood

The only Way is paved with blood

The Way of truth the Way of love

Personified in Christ above

Regardless what the world may say

To find lifeís Truth thereís just one-Way

Through faith and hope lifeís yours and mine

Believing Jesus God divine

They seek it here they seek it there

Eternal loveís but reached through prayer

The living Truthís Godís strong right hand

Alone through faith weíll understand

Countless persist to go astray

Itís hard for self to find The Way

Still blind to Christ most fail and fall

But not the few who heed His call

Best not be fooled by Satanís plan

Lifeís free to all whilst still we can

Heís here and now for all to find

But darkness keeps the foolish blind

The Light has come to set us free

Each yielding heart, The Truth to see

Eternal life is here today

And Christ remains The Only WayÖ..

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.
