None Else

 

The devil wants to keep us bound

To tempt and to deceive

To lure away from hallowed ground

And He we should believe

 

Who in creation’s passed life’s test?

Who loves for no reward?

Who chose to die that man be blessed?

But Jesus Christ The Lord

 

I praise The One who selfless came

The Lamb God sacrificed

Who else could bear my loathsome shame?

If not The Living Christ

 

If not The Prince of purest love

The Servant King divine

Choosing to leave His throne above

To make life yours and mine

 

Who else but Christ God’s Lamb &Son

Author of true life’s plan

How else can sinful souls be won

If not God’s Lamb as man

 

Who else knows Satan at his worst?

Who else throughout all time?

Could free each soul the devil’s cursed

However deep in crime

 

Perfection’s in The Master’s hand

Salvation’s through His blood

Obedience leads to understand

To live The Way we should

 

It’s up to you my friend and I

God’s plan of Calvary’s Tree

The choice is ours in sin to die

Or rise to Heaven free.....

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.
