Faith's Secret
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

          Faith's Secret

Its good to drink Salvation’s stream

Its sweet, to those once dead

Eternity is not a dream

Life’s dawn, has raised its head


God’s secret ventures from the past

Through Christ, we’re truly saved

Through death; emerged The First & Last

And Heaven’s road was paved


How vague, how strange was truth before

Though God has never lied

The blood of Christ that’s Heaven’s Door

Calls out to “Come inside”


The evidence is plain to see

Yet countless eyes are blind

The Lamb of God will set one free

And open up one’s mind


Life’s secret, can be heard and read

Through faith, The Truth is won

He’s come to heal, to raise the dead

Displayed in Christ; God’s Son


Salvation left His glory throne

So none should ever stray

He came to touch each heart of stone

In death; to show The Way


Through hope in Christ, we now can live

Through faith, we’ll see His face

How great is God that He should give

Such love, such saving grace


For all have sinned and fallen short

We’ve all despised God’s law

But now through faith in Christ’s report

There’s life forever more…..

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.
