Life's Light
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Life's Light

 

Revealing shadows of the night

Dispersing doubtful haze

When Jesus Christ Salvation’s Light

Brings faith that will amaze

 

The faith to stand, to rise and shine

Move mountains to the sea

Turn simple water into wine

And set the captive free

 

Yet Light’s not all that Jesus brings

God’s Son is so much more

He is! The Light the bible sings

That leads to Heaven’s door

 

He’s hope, He’s joy, He’s Heaven’s grace

The strength of God’s elite

The radiance on Moses’ face

The Lamp unto our feet

 

When Heaven’s brilliant Source arrives

When Jesus reigns within

We’ll see the church not only thrives

But lives to combat sin

 

I am! The Light” said Christ quite plain

“Life’s Light I came to give

I came to die to rise again

In order that you live”

 

Walk not by night and fall astray

Be clad in robes of white

Believe in Heaven’s Word today

And walk within The Light

 

The Light in ever flowing streams

The Light of God divine

The Light fulfilling wildest dreams

The Light that now is mine.....

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.
