Let It Reign

Let It Reign

 

Humility has souls to seek

Strength of a mighty King

For blessed are they who’s heart is meek

Life’s endless song to sing

 

Humility; walks never tall

Where wisdom’s taught it well

That fools strut proud before a fall

As Heaven’s Word will tell

 

A man who’s humble travels wise

With heart abating strife

A blessing to one’s seeing eyes

Along the road of life

 

True meekness knows where quarrels start

Where troubles may be found

And so remain with joyful heart

A blessing will abound

 

Not that they’re weak but ever strong

They’ll struggle not in vain

Knowing where wisdom should belong

Humility will reign

 

God knows the meek the foolish proud

He knows who live the best

He knows who shuns the maddening crowd

Through life, walk truly blessed

 

Allow humility wear the crown

The fool free to wander

Let all who cease to play the clown

Walk with Jesus yonder

 

For this; is truly Heaven’s Way

God said with upheld hand

When all man’s pride has past away

Humility will stand.....

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.
