Faith for the Faithful

Faith for the Faithful



 



Through righteousness that’s not our own



Through gifts we now receive



Through Fire that melts one’s heart of stone



We’ve faith to Christ believe



 



We’ve hope to see what’s never been



What no ones had to share



No ear has heard no eye has seen



Yet know through faith is there



 



Through faith we’ll see our God above



In glory live in peace



Through faith we’ll share eternal love



Where joy will never cease



 



Even each time we fall asleep



True faith will play its part



Trusting The Lord our soul to keep



And holding fast our heart



 



Right there it seems to Christians odd



Why atheists don’t die



Unconsciously, they’ll trust in God



Yet consciously deny



 



Thank God for gifts beyond supreme



For faith in Christ divine



Thank God for grace, life’s living Stream



Through which true life is mine



 



It’s mine because of faith’s embrace



Because of love unknown



Because of grace to see the face



Of Christ on Heaven’s throne



 



Alone; I’d fail to walk the walk



I’d fail to claim this boast



No flesh and bone could talk the talk



Without the Holy Ghost....

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.
