The Promise

The Promise


We live a while and when we’ve slept

We wake; before God’s throne

With joy they’ll have God’s Promise kept

Who’ve changed from flesh and bone


We have a Promise made on high

The world believes absurd

God’s covenant with those who die

Accepting Heaven’s Word


Regardless how or not we feel

In spite of what we see

Who trust God’s Son and Lamb is real

Receive life’s Guarantee


Through faith placed firm in Jesus Christ

Who heals, bears all our pain

We trust when self is sacrificed

In Him to rise again


God’s Warrantee, God’s Seal in blood

His Guarantee to life

His Guide to walk The Way we should

As would a faithful wife


The Holy Spirit is His name

Life’s Counsellor supreme

Baptised in Heaven’s cleansing Flame

We’ll drink from true life’s stream


When Jesus finds one walking dead

And tends with oil and wine

Wthey’ll eat The Master’s Living Bread

The Tree of Life Divine


From wayward sin best turn about

From Satan’s chains be free

While fools will die still plagued with doubt

And selfish blind won’t see.....

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.
