Jewels of Heaven

Jewels of Heaven


Full of joy Heavenly thrilled

Longing with love to share

The victory song my soul has filled

With others everywhere


Pleasure beyond my wildest dreams

Such peace before unknown

Laughter flowing from living streams

Cascades from true love’s throne


My soul of God just wants to sing

Free of its sinful weight

Wanting to rise on eagle’s wing

To soar through Heaven’s gate


Who can imagine greater bliss?

A deeper selfless love

Where else are pleasures such as this 

Mingled with grace above


Without the love of Jesus Christ

Obedience divine

Without the life He sacrificed

We’d stink as putrid wine


Yet through His death flows saving grace

His rising, sweet release

All whom these facts in truth embrace

To reap eternal peace


Such loveliness can none conceive

No flesh has ever known

So blessed are they who now believe

The Lamb on Heaven’s throne


The throne of Light of selfless love

Eternity entwined

To all promised, assured above

Whose heart Christ has refined.....

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.
