        Get Wise &Live.....

We’ve drank our Saviour’s promised Dew

His cross we’ve understood

God calls to join His chosen few

And serve the common good


We’ve seen Love’s grace with open eyes

Witnessed Salvation’s dawn

Through Jesus now we’ve grown too wise

To play the devil’s pawn


Too long we’ve danced the dance of fools

We’ve sang the devil’s lie

Too long we’ve been satanic tools

To God’s disgust on high


But wisdom’s opened wide her door

We’ve felt her warm embrace

To Satan’s tune we’ll dance no more

Now Truth is face to face


Our foolishness was Satan’s strength

Our ignorance his ploy

His evil bounded any length

To steal our peace and joy


But now the world must see The Light

Must hear Salvation’s voice

Must through The Truth receive her sight

And make God’s Son her choice


Until she’ll eat the victor’s feast

Till drinking true life’s flow

She must be rid of Satan’s yeast

Within her waxing dough


She must receive God’s Promise now!

Give up her wayward shame

To God alone her knee should bow

In Jesus’ Holy name..…

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.
