Who Sees the Light?.....

      Who Sees The Light?.....

Thank You God for the love of Christ

Your risen Son on high

The Precious Lamb You sacrificed

For grace to such as I


In books, on walls, in worship songs

But who in church can see?

Who knows therein life’s rights and wrongs?

And humbly bend their knee?


With hands aloft we cry as one

We join a willing bride

But who seeks guidance from Your Son?

Who has Your Lamp inside?


Who has ears life’s Word to hear?

Who have heard Your voice?

Learned Your awesome name to fear?

And made Your Way their choice


Who hears The Truth and make Him theirs?

Who sees The Light divine?

Who gives to Jesus all their cares?

Who drinks His brand new wine?


Who’s ate the flesh of Heaven’s Lamb?

Drank of His precious blood?

Who’ll trust Your Son in every jam?

And live The Way they should


Who wear in church a righteous smile?

Who cares for flock and wheat?

Who’ll walk by grace the extra mile?

To wash another’s feet


Who’ll pay their brother’s pending bail?

Recalling not their past

Faithful they’ll stand whilst others fail

Through fire and stormy blast…..

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.
