God's Word

God's Word


Entrusted with The living Word

By virtue of His grace

By faith believing what is heard

We’ll see The Author’s face


By faith in Christ The risen Lord

In Heaven’s living Bread

We’ll live we’ll stand through blood outpoured

Through suffering He shed


This wayward world has much to share

Like silver gold and jewels

Such fleeting wealth she has to bear

Is sought by blinded fools


No wine no drug could thrill us more

No ransom of a king

Than keys to life through Heaven’s Door

But One alone can bring


God’s Promised One is here is now

For all who’ll seek to live

For all who’s knees will faithful bow

For that which Christ will give


Ripping the devil’s world apart

The Temple drapes in two

The same; leading a sinful heart

Through faith to life anew


Life; through God’s Word made flesh and bone

The Lamb who chose to die

Saviour of souls with hearts of stone

To rise to live on high


Yet who’ll receive God’s Word today?

God’s Gift with Fire and Light

Believe, accept truly obey

Fighting the righteous fight.....

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.
