The Truth Makes Free

       The Truth Makes Free

The church today must come to see

Must learn to understand

Must free herself of world debris

Must serve as Jesus planned


Take off the mask she hides behind

Allow her heart be seen

That all yet lost, still sick and blind

May see she’s Jesus’ queen


Through second birth raising her head

Set free of all past shame

She’ll heal the sick she’ll raise the dead

In Jesus’ mighty name


She’ll take to hand God’s mighty sword

Adorned in robes of white

She’ll wear the ring of Christ The Lord

To flood the world with Light


The world will hear her righteous song

Will see her deeds of love

Revealing all in life that’s wrong

And God’s free Way above


When Truth in faith she’s spoken out

When to herself she dies

She’ll free the world of foolish doubt

Her light will open eyes


In one accord she’ll work the land

Lamps full with precious oil

She’ll be in Christ God’s willing hand

That ploughs the virgin soil


When once she’s drank The Promised Dew

Toiling man’s soul to save

She’ll stand her Groom and Master true

Vanquishing death and grave…..

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.
