                Listen

The universe so vast and grand

The things we fail to see

Are made and held by Jesus' hand

At Heaven's royal decree

 

Flowing fresh as a mountain stream

Life's Truth runs far and deep

But till it reigns in hearts supreme

The world stays blind asleep

 

God shows quite clear what man should do

To hear His guiding voice

At least those saved those born anew

Whose hearts in Christ rejoice

 

The Lord won't keep His children blind

But gives them ears to hear

Quietly speaking in the mind

And often loud and clear

 

For Jesus lives; God's fit and well

Although the world's in doubt

God keeps His children free from hell

Showing what life's about

 

Showing this life is not for gain

Showing the church His plan

Cleansing sinners of spot and stain

By showing that He can

 

Though all the world's festooned with sin

Life's facts are plain in sight

She fails to bid the voice within

So fails to see The Light

 

Yet those who make God's Son their choice

Who seek The Lord's desire

Heaven will guide through Jesus' voice

And cleanse our souls with fire.....

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.
