† † † Date with Eternity

The crown of life is not for sale

No deed Godís grace can buy

Manís shameful flesh is sure to fail

And bound one day to die

Whoíll purge oneself of filth and ill?

Whoíll seek Salvationís face?

Resolve to do The Fatherís will

In power of His grace

Humility is Godís delight

True righteousness His love

Self sacrifice manís utmost height

Reached only through Lifeís Dove

When selfless love we come to share

When truly faith employ

The fruit to God we come to bear

Hellís parasites destroy

All Satanís lies the soul will see

Will penetrate his guise

The Word of God will set us free

Above all doubts to rise

When lifeís true facts have been conceived

When true loveís finally won

When heart and soul have Christ believed

Will bride and Groom be one

Great joy in Heaven will resound

Such songs redeemed will sing

The wedding feast on hallowed ground

Will glorify The King

When all the books are searched and read

Lifeís race through Christ is won

Eternity will raise her head

The Fatherís will be doneÖ..

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.
