They stood witnessing in the street

Their lives in Christ anew

Preaching of love at Jesusí feet

And what remains to do

Itís good to hear when otherís share

ďGod touched my heart todayĒ

I loved their songs, their childlike prayers

Whilst I was on my way

Itís such a thrill Godís Truth to hear

His praises flood the land

See Christians dance, raise joyous cheer

Others to understand

Pleasure I saw on each their face

Within their legs a spring

Speaking of Christ, of Heavenís grace

I felt my heart take wing

Till then, of God I gave no thought

No need of Christ and yet

Itís through their fruit, this fish was caught

Firm in The Saviourís net

How strange to think I gave no fight

No struggle to be free

Instead, I felt utter delight

As life came into me

Now truth is mine, Iíve open eyes

Iíve answered Heavenís call

I too must now evangelise

And bring Godís Word to all

Through Jesusí blood Iím born anew

Perfectly safe and sound

Now on the street Iíve joined the few

So others may be found..Ö

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.
