Because Of Love


How marvellous it is to live

Because of love’s command

Because Christ died His grace to give

That I should live as planned


I live and love because of love

Because of love well spent

Because I’ve so much from above

I’ll never love repent


What Jesus did for such as me

For each for all mankind

Because He shares so liberally

Shows love is more than blind


It sees each need and slightest cause

Stretching its healing hand

Opening closing countless doors

In each and every land


Love’s free to give its free to keep

Though often seen as odd

But what runs shallow what runs deep

Is very nature’s God


Love’s Father Son and Holy Ghost

In Jesus’ serving throng

Always patient, offering most

Living to sing it’s song


It sings to me dances to you

Melodiously sweet

Its daily free its daily new

At Jesus’ loving feet


So here I stand here I live

In love wrapped up in grace

All I receive, loving I’ll give

Until I see God’s face.....

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.
