Such peace such joy, my heart now sings

Vibrant through Christ divine

Laughing at storms that life yet brings

Since true salvation’s mine


God saw my pain He saw my plight

He saw the facts within

Stumbling blind without His Light

Falling to deeper sin


Christ gave to me His Holy Ghost

Life’s Fire to burn inside

By grace alone lest I may boast

May walk full selfish pride


I bless the day when Jesus came

When love walked through my door

Exchanging robes for rags of shame

And life forever more


What can I do what can I say?

Eternal life for free!

The blessings felt that special day

When grace took hold of me


My past’s forgiven, I have God’s love

I’m free of Satan’s jail

My hope is built on Christ above

And Jesus cannot fail


With wondrous joy I sing God’s praise

And that of Christ His Son

Gladly I’ll serve Him all my days

And see life’s victories won


I have no doubt that day will dawn

Here in Jesus hand

When Heaven blows the final horn

I’ll live; as always planned.....

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.
