Accept by Faith


We’re in the year of jubilee

God’s festival of love

Through Christ we have the victory

Through boundless grace above


Believe in God trust Christ His Son

Drink deep The Promise Dew

Through faith are all our battles won

Through faith is life anew


Walking The Way God chose before

Living as Jesus taught

The Lord will open Heaven’s door

As seen in Christ’s report


God’s Promise stands forever true

Life’s crown we’ll surely wear

Doing the things we ought to do

With love and tender care


With Bread of life with Heaven’s Wine

Within God’s realm of Light

With Christ The Lord we’ll live and dine

In robes of brilliant white


For each a mansion’s waiting there

Along life’s streets of gold

Where every blessing God will share

Amongst His faithful fold


No ear has heard no eye has seen

Waiting at Heaven’s throne

Blessings for Jesus’ chosen queen

Glory and wealth unknown


Such The Promise such the thrill

Await the son’s of man

Written within our Father’s will

Ere time on earth began…..

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.
