Spirit Of God

Spirit Of God

Wonderful Spirit Grace divine 
Draw near reign within
Let love let Truth be truly mine
Equip to combat sin

Beautiful Spirit, God inside
Power and strength unknown
Let love with faith be multiplied
To melt this heart of stone

Inspiring Spirit help me find
The Way to holy ground
Help up, help on, help leave behind
The chains that hold me bound

Ignite in me consuming fire
Submerge my soul with light
Till love becomes my prime desire
Till sin's no more in sight

Remove the tempter's every claim
Remove demonic silt 
Consume the filth each trace of shame

All death's foundation's built 


Without Your presence, who can stand?
How can a child proceed? 
Who can enter The Promised Land?
If You as Guide don't   lead

Correct today this flesh and bone
Convert my thoughts of lust 
Transform my calloused heart of stone 
Before I turn to dust

Come sweet Comforter of my soul
Come Councillor supreme
Come God until I reach my goal
And live with You life’s dream......

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.
