More of You, Less of Me

More of You, Less of me.....

Lord as I pray on bended knee

Search deep within my heart

Allow my eyes Your will to see

That we may never part

With more of You and less of me

Refine this child with fire

Until the day Your face I see

Diminish self desire

Let Heaven be my crucial goal

Cause hell lock tight its door

With truthful heart with gentle soul

Give life forever more

My precious faith is due to You!

The strength I have is Yours

Allow the goal I now pursue

Lead straight through Heavenís doors

Convict my soul when things are wrong

Bestow strong Godly fear

That I may sing lifeís victory song

Chastise me whilst Iím here

Hold fast my God Your servantís hand

Your Spirit lend as Guide

On judgement day allow me stand

With Jesus by my side

With Councillor as personal friend

As Saviour King & Lord

I pledge my soul that You defend

Against the pending sword

Before this body turns to dust

Before this worldís demise

In Christ alone I place my trust

That I to life may rise.....

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.
