Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star


Ten billion pearls a velvet sky

Lustrous diamonds above

Give praise to God who dwells on high

Displaying constant love


How great how vast this awesome sight

Sing songs from deep inside

No darkness, can invade the light

God gives at eventide


Wonders miracles near and far

Silvery moon arrayed

Shining between each twinkling star

Lovers and world displayed


Let’s praise The Lord for what He’s done

For comets flying by

The brilliant radiance of the sun

Shining each day on high


Consider this giant fire ball

It’s blazing splendid light

How is it there why won’t it fall?

Ceasing to show God’s might


Let’s take a while in thought, in prayer

Sing sweet or cry aloud

For all such things He gives to share

Above each marvellous cloud


Let Heaven hear our heartfelt praise

Let all the world be told

While ceaselessly His deeds amaze

His mighty works unfold


Glorious is our Fathers hand

Displayed within the sky

Regardless if we understand

Let’s praise His name on high.....

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.
