† † † Fetters of Paul & Silas (2).....

Praise is the key Christís gift at hand

Praise opens wide Godís door

Who this can learn to understand

May live forever more

When Jesus changes hearts of stone

When eyes cease to be blind

Oneís mouth wonít praise The Lord alone

But deeds with grace of mind

For when we open praise our door

When facts our eyes lay wide

Upon The Wind loveís song can soar

From Jesus chosen bride

When planted firm in Christ lifeís root

Nourished in Heavenís Vine

Each faithful branch can bear much fruit

To furnish Heavenís wine

Give praise to God for all Heís done

Jesus who conquered death

Give praise through whom lifeís war is won

Sing loud whilst yet weíve breath

Only a fool will fail to praise

The One to whom itís due

Letís sing loveís song through all our days

To Him who makes us new

For all of life is in His hand

Deathís keys and those for hell

Creation bows at Christís command

As Satan knows now well

With heart and soul in one accord

When serving hand in hand

With songs singing praising The Lord

Weíll live as always planned.....PTO.....

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.
