Live to Christ

        Live to Christ

Who fall asleep with second birth

Who live to Christ, God’s Son

Who lose their life, for truth on earth

For these life’s just begun


Nothing of man, exists for long

Nor anything he’s made

In Christ we sing life’s  victory’s song

All else will surely fade


The song of Christ will never end

Nor those in Him who sing

Whose heart is right, whose knees will bend,

In grace before The King


In fact we live in Truth alone

In Truth Christ’s strength, we fight

Exchanging flesh, one’s heart of stone

Our tents, for robes of Light


Opposed to those who waste their time

Living this life for gain

God’s holy hill, they’ll fail to climb

For Christ’s not free to reign


When Jesus comes to set us free

When Heaven’s Truth is told

What joy’s received when eyes can see?

God’s mysteries unfold


Through miracles we’ve second birth

Through Jesus’ blood, we live

We see there’s more to life on earth

Much more The Lord can give


Who seek; The Christ, to quench their thirst

Who search, for love and peace?

Who’ll place The Saviour always first?

Their lives will never cease…..

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.
