Don't Walk on By.....

Don't Walk On By..... (Lk.10:30-37

We think we’re safe in Christ alive

Life’s Way is crystal clear

Now every day we’ll surely thrive

And have no more to fear


Yet though we’re saved and born anew

Made righteous through God’s Son

There still remains so much to do

Until God’s will is done


For still we watch how others die

How others rot in jail

Like fools content we walk on by

Seeing our neighbours fail


While countless souls are in disgrace

While countless die in ruin

With downcast heart with smiling face

They dance to Satan’s tune


Still lost in pride chained in deceit

Astray from life on high

They sit at Satan’s tempting feet

Whilst saints in Christ walk by


We think to know we think we’re wise

Death’s road is far behind

We think in Christ we’ve open eyes

But to the truth we’re blind


Our ears can’t hear the sinners cry

Can’t hear our neighbour’s groan

Content we live the devil’s lie

With hearts are hard as stone


 Others to cross the last divide

Assail the God’s holy mount

The Truth inside we cannot hide

Nor quench Salvation’s fount.....

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.
