Through Faith & Trust

     Through Faith & Trust

Where righteousness has wandered far

When souls give birth to hate

The contents of a heart will bar

The Way through Heaven’s gate


In Christ we learn through sin we fall

We die and end in flame

But faith and trust will conquer all

When placed in Jesus’ name


Let no one’s heart God’s Lamb deny

Nor doubt Salvation’s might

Whilst life’s hill beyond the sky

On “Christ The Rope” hold tight


In life to Christ bend true the knee

Through faith seek help above

Place trust and hope on turbulent sea

Within God’s “Ship” of love


Before we sail through “Heaven’s Door”

Before we’re high and dry

We’ll journey every foreign shore

Where sailors sink and die


Yet in Christ’s hand we’ll never fail

Nor can we lose The Way

“God’s Holy Wind” will fill the sail

And guide us night and day


Sail on toward The Promised Land

Fear not, with Christ in view

Salvation in His mighty hand

Will see us safely through.....

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.
