Total Deliverance


This world’s chock full of jails today

Depression fills each cell

Prisoners waiting judgment day

Then endless life in hell


Perhaps it’s you, who’s locked inside

Blind to salvation’s tree

Still bound with sin with foolish pride

You fail The Truth to see


The Truth of Christ upon The Cross

The Lamb who rose on high

Who chose for us to suffer loss

That we may never die


Deliverance; needs to come my friend

For Light to dawn within

Where God alone can bring an end

By cleansing souls of sin


He sees your heart He knows we fail

He sees the evil done

He sees when children chained in jail

Reach out to Christ His Son


Believe by grace, you’re not alone

The Lord is at your side

He wants your soul, your heart of stone

The filth you thought to hide


He wants to take, so He can give

His gift of inner sight

The Comforter, man’s Guide to live

To help us through the fight


To stand beside The Living Christ

To win the war of wars

Reclaiming what’s been sacrificed

When death shuts tight its doors.....

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.
