David Saw the Truth

David Saw the Truth


King David saw the truth so clear

Humbly bending his knees

With heart flowing with Godly fear

He sought his Lord to please


Yet chocked with pride the church pulsates

Though Christ for her had died

Rising again and still awaits

That love be magnified


Thinking God’s presence will appear

We sing on Holy Ground

Praying long prayers for all to hear

While selfish thoughts abound


Ourselves; to God we need to bring!

One’s hands, holy should raise

In reverence should one’s soul truth sing

For God to hear our praise


With humble heart and selfless mind

Respectful set aside

When eyes no more to Christ are blind

All needs will God provide


Wisdom and knowledge need to call

Humility needs to reign

Then foolish pride will come to fall

And life will be our gain


For souls on eagles wing to fly

For victory sweet as wine

To God we need to live and die

In Christ to rise and shine


To God alone our praise should be

For others should we cry!

Heralding life’s sweet victory

Through Christ our King on high.....

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.
