A Heart to Serve.....

        A Heart to Serve.....

Creator God eternal King

Come cleanse my heart of shame

Become my Lord let Truth now sing

To glorify Your name


Create Your purpose in my mind

Teach me to care and love

Restore these eyes self will made blind

To see Your Way above


In Saul You healed his spirit Lord

You gave to him a crown

David became Your awesome sword

To pull the mighty down


In righteousness great deeds were done

Pleasing my God on high

To glorify Your Christ & Son

And show to such as I


Plant deep Your Truth within this child

Let trust and faith increase

That I be truly reconciled

And find eternal peace


Furnish my heart with righteous seed

My cup with Heaven’s Wine

Send me equipped others to feed

Revealing Christ divine


This sinful world’s condemned to die

Her offspring live in fear

Lord let them now see Satan’s lie

By granting grace to hear


Why should the devil have his way?

Why should his ranks still swell?

Cut off his power now today

And cast him into hell..…

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.
