Who else?

                Who else?

Who can discern the hidden thought?

What lurks behind lies shroud?

Why does the flesh account for nought?

Once sin inside's allowed

 

What value, is a child's last tear?

Life's last departing sigh?

The love that turns away all fear

One's doubt to wonder why

 

Who made the way for sin to reign?

Why is it hard to turn?

Why can't we all be born again?

What makes God's anger burn?

 

Has man a choice which song he sings?

Which tune he'll dance life's reel?

Does God consider worldly things?

And know what humans feel?

 

Whose heart can hear what Jesus said?

Whose soul receives His Light?

Who gives life to the walking dead?

Who can restore one's sight?

 

What greater gift, can God bestow?

How deep has love to reach

How far is grace prepared to go

Who can such lessons teach?

 

Who can lay claim to Heaven's share?

Who can ascend on high?

Who can join Christ, God's Son as heir?

Who can refuse to die?

 

The answer lies in Jesus' hand

God's precious Word revealed

Through Christ alone we understand

When at His feet we yield..... Praise The Lord. .....

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.
