Flowing Love

 

Love is the source of perfect peace

Joy’s spring where souls are blessed

The stream where waters never cease

To seas of tranquil rest

 

Though tempests rage and ice rains pour

Great winds may pitch and toss

Yet perfect peace will love restore

Beneath Salvation’s Cross

 

Love is the breath the life divine

The beating heart of Christ

The Bread of life salvations wine

Christ Jesus sacrificed

 

Love is the seed Grace came to sow

Key to The Promised Land

The tree from which new birth would flow

To flood the world as planned

 

Restoring, melting hearts of stone

Lifting a soul depressed

Streaming forth beneath the throne

To God’s eternal rest

 

So glorious is Jesus’ love

Selflessly pouring free

Vivacious from His heart above

To those on bended knee

 

To those who seek His willing hand

Who sin and shame confess

Who seek to turn to understand

The warmth of love’s caress

 

Love is The Father’s sweet delight

Greater than sword and pen

Life’s endless crown life’s robe of white

And Jesus Christ’s amen.....Love is the source of perfect peace

Joy’s spring where souls are blessed

The stream where waters never cease

To seas of tranquil rest

 

Though tempests rage and ice rains pour

Great winds may pitch and toss

Yet perfect peace will love restore

Beneath Salvation’s Cross

 

Love is the breath the life divine

The beating heart of Christ

The Bread of life salvations wine

Christ Jesus sacrificed

 

Love is the seed Grace came to sow

Key to The Promised Land

The tree from which new birth would flow

To flood the world as planned

 

Restoring, melting hearts of stone

Lifting a soul depressed

Streaming forth beneath the throne

To God’s eternal rest

 

So glorious is Jesus’ love

Selflessly pouring free

Vivacious from His heart above

To those on bended knee

 

To those who seek His willing hand

Who sin and shame confess

Who seek to turn to understand

The warmth of love’s caress

 

Love is The Father’s sweet delight

Greater than sword and pen

Life’s endless crown life’s robe of white

And Jesus Christ’s amen.....

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.
