Eternal Life Is Mine


I’m safe in Christ The Lord of life

I’ve found my righteous King

My Saviour God who’ll end all strife

Who gave life’s song to sing


I’ve found The Lamb who chose to die

That I may walk in Light

In service to The Truth on high

My future’s more than bright


I hold The Key to Heaven’s Door

Life’s Lamp resides inside

So death nor grave I’ll fear no more 

I’ve nothing more to hide


Confession cleansed my tarnished soul

Made pure my putrid heart

My Saviour’s blood has made me whole

Has brought a brand new start


My past’s revealed in Jesus’ hand

My future’s crystal clear

I’m heading for The Promised Land

When work’s completed here


I thank The Lord for saving me

For lifting high my head

For setting me completely free

For raising from the dead


I love The Father, Christ His Son

Life’s Counsellor divine

Through faith I know the battle’s won

Eternal life is mine


Fast anchored to The Corner Stone

I’ve placed in Christ my trust

Awesome! I’ll change from flesh and bone

When others turn to dust.....

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.
