Sacrificed for Life


Armed with virtue with grace with love

In hand Truth’s righteous sword

We fight life’s fight ordained above

Through Christ our risen Lord


With weapons, darkness cannot withstand

With hearts as virgin snow

Living, serving in every land

To rid the common foe


Rising while all around us fall

Thriving through Jesus Christ

Pouring virtue on one and all

Who’s lives are sacrificed


Sacrificed unto servitude

To elevate life’s King

Offered for the multitude

One’s thanks and praise to sing


In love we live in love we die

Fire glowing inside

Rising where eagles cannot fly

Beyond the great divide


Forsaking all for Heaven’s will

Gallant in robes of white

Standing defending Zion Hill

As soldiers of The Light


Because of truth of Christ God’s Son

Obedience grace and love

We’ll fight until with victory won

We’ll soar to reign above


Who can envisage glory’s throne?

Or Heaven’s climb endure

Only who’s heart is not of stone

Who’s soul The Lamb’s made pure……

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.
