We see church numbers slip and slide

As chapels close their gate

While through denominational pride

We choose to segregate


Yet God’s resolved to make us one

Devoid of sin and shame

Uniting in His Lamb, His Son

In Jesus’ holy name


We say the other church is wrong

Our doctrine’s rich and fair

But is it not the devil’s song?

When love we fail to share


The church, to free herself of rot

Must stop her selfish fight

Must be aware of Satan’s plot

Must now in Christ unite


We need to think before we speak

Question what leaders tell

Not make the bride feel sick and weak

Decreeing tales from hell


Christ’s church today should understand

Such things to lay aside

That each within The Lord God’s hand

Is chosen as His bride


We need to love with all our heart

Until the church is whole

Not with one’s mouth tear Christ apart

Condemning thus our soul


When one; combined in Heaven’s sight

When hand in hand we sing

We’ll walk and live in brilliant Light

Beneath our Saviour’s wing.....

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.
