The World Should Know

The World Should Know


This world’s so plagued with trap and snare

With Satan’s tempting jewels

With those who seek the devil’s fair

Who walk and live like fools


Its Satan’s ploy to drag us down

To lie to cheat to kill

To steal from us life’s precious crown

Opposing Heaven’s will


While Satan haunt the walking dead

Amongst the world’s debris

Christ calls us from hell’s lustful bed

To cause one’s eyes to see


Who’ve heard The Truth the facts are plain

The bible lays it bare

Our former life was lived in vain

And Satan doesn’t care


But now through Christ, there’s hope to live

Through faith there’s endless more

With peace with joy The Lord will give

The keys to true life’s door


Blessings to thrill beyond compare

Love in amazing stream

Untold treasures for all to share

Beyond our wildest dreams


Let’s praise The One who paid the price

Who died for you and me

Who chose His life to sacrifice

To set us sinners free


Let’s tell the world of Jesus’ love

Of Satan’s gross deceit

Of hell of Heaven of life above

Help make God’s joy complete…..

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.
