Heaven Stands Us By

Heaven Stands Us By


Who’ll fail to enter Heaven’s courts?

Who’ll fail to see God’s face?

Plastic people with plastic thoughts

Void of love and grace


We must be real, The Father true

Renounce shame found within

God’s righteous Way alone pursue

Without the lust for sin


It’s no good running hot and cold

One foot in, one foot out

Be strong in faith with love be bold

Leaving no room for doubt


For this; we need to stand and fight

Be vigilant and strong

With Jesus’ love with Heaven’s Light

Singing each victory song


Living, walking salvation’s Way

With shield and trusted sword

Cautiously watching night and day

Following Christ as Lord


Keeping The Master plain in view

Washing each others feet

Obedient in the things we do

Growing in love’s elite


Whilst holding fast to Heaven’s call

True faith will never die

Perhaps we’ll fail, but never fall

For God will stand us by


For has He not for each a plan?

A plan never in vain

Seeing the heart and soul of man

God knows who will remain.....

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.
