I Cry for You

I Cry for You


I cry for you God’s child still lost

I cry because I care

Because for you Christ paid the cost

Eternal life to share


I cry because of love so great

For joy with peace so sound

Because I hope before too late

God’s Truth in you’ll be found


The Truth we need for hearts to change

The Truth to save the soul

The Truth our lives to rearrange

And make us free and whole


I cry because of Light divine

Because I’m more than thrilled

Because Salvation’s truly mine

And Jesus’ love’s fulfilled


Fulfilled because I’m saved by grace

I’ve joined my  Lord’s elite

I cry before my Father’s face

Beside my Saviour’s feet


I cry because life’s Truth is near

Though hearts abound with crime

I cry because Christ’s cloud I fear

May come at any time


I cry for all the lost blind sheep

For those in Satan’s hand

I cry because of those asleep

Who’ve failed to understand


Before I climb life’s Holy Mount

Before God’s face I see

I hope my tears may even count

To set some others free.....

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.
