Chains of Paul & Silas (1).....

† † †Chains of Paul & Silas (1).....

Inhabiting manís humble praise

Upon His glorious throne

Sits Christ The Lord, Ancient Of Days

Salvationís Corner Stone

Within His hand creation thrives

In Him all life began

Do we today not owe our lives?

To Christ The Son of man

To Christ The Son of God on high

To Christ The living Lord

To Christ The Lamb who chose to die

That life may be restored

Ought not we praise who gave us birth?

Who gave us peace inside?

Should not we praise for all weíre worth

For choosing us as bride

Mountains will move when praise is heard

Disease will bend its knee

Bonds will break at Heavenís Word

Blind eyes begin to see

When Paul and Silas sang in chains

Did Christ not show His might?

Through praise they saw their faith explained

Through faith they saw the Light

They magnified their Saviourís name

They danced to loveís sweet tune

Through grace they saw the back of shame

And witnessed Satanís ruin

Oneís trust belongs to God alone

All glory Christís to give

So praise the Lord all flesh and bone

Stand firm in Christ and liveÖ..P.T.O.....

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.
