Rise up Complete

Rise up Complete


“Come buy” says God “What can’t be sold

Purchase what none can buy

Receive with silver purest gold

My promise not to die”


If sinful man The Truth would hear

If selfish eyes could see

If arrogance would Jesus fear

Then death would bend it’s knee


This selfish world has much to learn

Her children should be taught

Though God is love, His love may burn

Until The Truth is bought


Receive God’s Son God’s Lamb who died

Receive The Truth & Light

Receive life’s Seed till multiplied

Be right for Heaven flight


I am your God I’m Lord of all

My living Word is true

I’ll never leave, you’ll never fall

Obey The Truth in you


Obey my child comply and live

Accept salvation’s Seed

Receive the facts He died to give

To meet your every need


Become on earth my faithful tool

Remain in Jesus’ hands

Refuse to be the devil’s fool

Reject his dark demands


Be wise my child your time is now

Cast out your self desire

Allow your knee to Jesus bow

Receive new birth with Fire-Mt.3:11.....

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.
