† † Working Out There

Dig deep the land yet cold and dry

Break up un-fallowed ground

Pray Living Light would fall from high

That Jesus may be found

Thereís not much good just sitting there

While children die still lost

Christ died for you, for all elsewhere

Salvation paid the cost

Allow my Son become your guide

Arise in Christ anew

Arise in faith venture outside

Youíll find Iím out there too

Spread wide The Truth that set you free

Spread deep Lifeís Seed with grace

So others too may worship me

May live to see my face

When all on earth is done my child

When time has had her fill

With all my children reconciled

Iíll exercise my will

Iíll call to those Iíve proved and tried

When every battleís won

Iíll call to me the chosen bride

To give my precious Son

For through my Word, when washed and clean

Sheíll have the right to life

The right to reign as promised queen

My Sonís eternal wife

So pay good heed to all Iíve said

Arise within your pews

With He who lives, who once was dead

Go tell the world the newsĒÖ..

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.
