            And Never Dies.

Who walk the way of truth and love

Who in God’s Light abide

Who’s faith is placed in Christ above

God’s Son will raise as bride


For endless life! God first made man

With power to rule the earth

But disobedience ruined the plan

And death was given birth


When earth to life has closed her door

When judgment’s played His part

Eternity will stand before

The contents of each heart


For those in Christ with saving grace

Who’s faith has passed the test

Their Bridegroom built a wondrous place

With love and endless rest


The sword of God will say His piece

Will sever void of Light

For these; torment will never cease

Nor will their woeful plight


They’ll scream that someone ends the pain

Show mercy Lord they’ll cry

Deliver us Jesus their refrain

But none in hell can die


We must prepare whilst yet we may

Our lives to rearrange

Only a fool will dare to say

I had no need of change


For all have sinned and fallen short

However slight the crime

Best now believe Christ’s true report

Right now whilst yet there’s time.....

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.
