Oh to Be like You.....

† † †Oh to be like You.....

I know that Iím a sinful child

I know Iíve done You wrong

I so regret my running wild

Singing the devilís song

Forgive me for my wayward past

Please hear my heartfelt plea

Behind, let all my sins be cast

Lord let my soul be free

Repentance, comes through You alone

Through Heavenís Lamb once slain

Through Jesusí blood this heart of stone

Can melt till born again

Come change me please to be like You!

Fulfil in me Your will

Fill my cup with The Morning Dew

Allow me drink my fill

Your Holy Ghost will give me sight

Will guide will purge my soul

Transforming through lifeís living Light

Making Your servant whole

To be like You, is my desire

On eagle wings Iíd fly

Consume my shame with Holy Fire

Until I soar on high

I know The Truth I see The Light

The Way is crystal clear

I bless the day You gave me sight

And taught Your name to fear

No more am I the devilís tool

Iíll sing no more his song

How was I such a blinded fool?

Failing my Lord so long.....†

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.
