Now Is the Time


Mysteries dancing to and fro

Shadows flicker the past

Clouding the mind where’re we go

Before life’s die is cast


Before we cross the great divide

Before exposed to light

We need The Lamb who came and died

To clad our souls in white


It’s time to query truth and lies

Question our chosen ways

Remove the blindfolds from our eyes

To penetrate the haze


It’s time to learn God to obey

Our fellow man to love

Disregard what lost fools say

And seek The Truth above


We need to free the world of weed

Hold fast to Heaven’s plough

Through Jesus plant God’s living Seed

In barren lands right now


It’s time for faith to rise and dare

Believe the facts we’ve heard

Reach out for that which God would share

According to His Word


It’s time to venture from our sleep

Break out from self made graves

Willing trusting faithful to leap

And walk upon the waves


Regardless what this life may bring

Though fierce be the foe

Let’s raise the song Christ gives to sing

Whilst in His strength we go.....

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.
