For Christ to Reign

For Christ to Reign


When Jesus reigns upon our throne

As truly Lord and King

We leave the ways of flesh and bone

And change the songs we sing


Keeping Jesus in constant sight

Following His chosen path

We fellowship within The Light

With no fear of wrath


Receiving what Heaven will give

Accepting truth first hand

Living The Way we ought to live

The facts we’ll understand


Truly we’ll see The Father’s heart

The love He has to share

We understand to play no part

In all the filth out there


From Satan’s house we must vacate

Emptying hearts of dross

Following entry through life’s Gate

Via Calvary’s Cross


We understand these things must be

So heart and soul fare well

For endless peace in victory

We had to flee from hell


We had to seek The Father’s face

Reach out to God above

Receive salvation’s wondrous grace

Through Jesus’ perfect love


If this is not your way of life

If Christ seems less than true

For you to flee from death and strife

God’s reaching out to you…. .

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.
