Are You Worth It (2)

Does man deserve the time of day?

The Light God sends to show The Way?

Should Jesus dwell in hearts of stone?

When taking score which seed we’ve sown

 

Who’ll bear the cross that Jesus gives?

Who’ll show the world The Father lives?

Who’ll take God’s Word and stand it well?

Forsaking self and gates of hell

 

Who takes delight in bright blue sky?

Bow humble knees to God on high?

Who see God’s Lamb as Lord and King?

Now give to Jesus everything?

 

Who’ll turn from all the filth they’ve done?

Who’ll believe in Christ God’s Son?

Who’ll consider His hands and feet?

Then fear no more His judgement seat?

 

Who’ll fill their cup with Heaven’s Dew?

Embrace each dawn that births anew?

Squirrel and fox cool mountain streams?

Who gives regard to dreamer’s dreams?

 

Who can compute life’s sweet delights?

Cool summer breeze fresh winter nights?

Who’ll raise their hands to God above?

Thanking His Son for all His love

 

Who’ll give credence to Christ’s report?

Drink of the Drink that can’t be bought?

Who will accept life’s robe Light?

Who’ll stand in truth and fight the fight?

 

Who’ll consider the crown of thorn?

Hell’s painful night, Heaven’s sweet dawn?

Who’ll consider eternal grace?

The day we’ll meet God face to face…..

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.
