The Soul Lives on
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

           The Soul Lives on

Believe Salvation’s true report –Jn.1-31

For better or for worse

Consider well the solemn thought

Behind creation’s curse –Gen.3:14-24


Our every deed is seen on high

No thought from God can flee

Through sin, man’s flesh alone will die

Yet souls no end will see


Blessed is the child these latter days

Salvation’s now in sight

Christ’s blood gives life, to sing God praise –Lk.19:40

And strength to win the fight


God’s Word can change one’s flesh and bone

Can sever like a sword

Can raise the dead, melt hearts to stone –Mt.3:9

When Christ becomes our Lord


When Christ is Lord Jesus is King

Straight is our narrow goal

Like Mary then we too can sing –Lk.1:47-56

“God’s Seed has blessed my soul”


Through Heaven’s love The Lord will send

His Holy Ghost and Flame

Our second birth will see no end

When cleansed of all past shame


For this we need God’s guiding Light

To quit the devil’s charms

Escape his treadmill of the night

To Jesus’ outstretched arms


Receive His strength to run the race

To fight to triumph sin

The Lord’s reserved a tranquil place

For all in Christ who win.....P.T.O…..

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.
