Worthy Is One

Worthy Is One


Truly worthy alone is One

Crucified on a tree

The Lord God’s Lamb His righteous Son

Who died to set us free


To perfect life again restored

Now reigning King supreme

At God’s right hand with mighty sword

Completing soon our dream


The dream for which His life had cost

Selfless; abandoned alone

To reinstate the crown man lost

As mortal flesh and bone


Christ’s worthy of the songs we sing

Worthy of all our praise

As Cornerstone our reigning King

The Ancient Lord Of Days


Now King of kings, God’s radiant light

The Lord’s alive and well

Glorified, most ready to fight

Worthy to save from hell


Creator of the universe

Giver of life, to man

Who’s blood alone could break the curse

Since Adam’s life began


Worthy forever praised to stand

Worthy to wear life’s crown

Able to raise a holy hand

And tear authorities down


Christ’s obedience broke Adam’s chain

Making us reconciled

Now through His blood man born-again

Becomes His Father’s child.....

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.
