Ordained to Serve

Ordained to Serve

 

Praise God for hill for rugged vale

Life’s Shield and two edged Sword

For saving grace from hell’s dark jail

For Christ our risen Lord  

 

Blessed is the soul where truths abound

Whose hope is Christ The King

Whose faith transcends to holy ground

Eternal praise to sing

 

From deep within a humble core

Through faith to Christ believe

Hoping to enter Heaven’s Door

God’s blessing to receive

 

A priceless gift of grace divine

A heart full potent praise

A tongue more sweet than sun drenched wine

With voice a song to raise

 

Ordained to serve with hands made pure

With eyes trained high above

With joy with peace standing secure

With Him of perfect love

 

Seven times seven, tried and tried

Cleansed as the virgin snow

Fruits for a life well multiplied

Blessings which flow and flow

 

Whose silver and gold meets neighbour's needs

Through acts and selfless thought

Plants deep in life love’s righteous seeds

Whilst Heaven’s will is sought

 

Accepting Jesus’ true report

Serving both Lamb and fold

With call accomplished, fight well fought

Receive life’s crown of gold.....

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.
