Free to Love

Free to Love

 

Praise God I’m free of all that shame

Demonic filth within

How great life is since Jesus came

And bore my every sin

 

Bless Father Son and Holy Ghost

Sing praises loud on high

I fear no more in hell to roast

No fear have I to die

 

I’m all wrapped up in Jesus’ love

Secure from evil eyes

Made innocent just like a dove

And like a serpent wise

 

I’m free, I’m free, I’m free at last

Free as a lamb in spring

I’m free of all my selfish past

And free life’s song to sing

 

Why should I worry why should I care

Now everything is fine

Eternity is free to share

And Jesus love is mine

 

Yet though in Christ I’m born anew

En route The Promised Land

There’s still remains much work to do

I’m called to lend a hand

 

I want to scream I want to shout

Fly high on eagle’s wing

I want to tell what love’s about

While loving everything

 

I love, I love, The Truth I see

I love Jesus divine

I love the love that loves in me

The love 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.
