Who Can Ascend?

Who Can Ascend?


Who can ascend God’s holy hill?

Call Heaven’s King their friend?

Declare they’ve done The Father’s will

And so their soul defend


Can you with heart and soul deny?

That sin has held your hand

So innocent, you’ll never die

As God has always planned


Can you stand Jesus face to face?

Stand eye to eye with light

Declare your life’s adorned with grace

In robes of brilliant white


Have you a soul so dazzling clean

A heart so rich and sure

Nothing can enter in between

Revealing ought impure


If yes; is not your answer friend

If one of them is no

Then help you need before the end

Before to sleep you go


You need God’s Fire burn inside

God’s Son to stand you by

Accept God’s Lamb for you has died

Before failing you die


With God there is no darkness there

With God there is no night

No lie will live nor have a share

Where God is always Light


No place for sin no place for shame

No place for flesh is made

Eternal stands The Righteous Flame

No darkness can invade.....

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.
