The Way of Truth and Life


Our spirit, man will first conceive

When God we learn to know

When in God’s Son God’s Word believe

When in The Truth we grow


No longer need we walk as blind

Condemned through past disgrace

Like docile sheep like lost mankind

Who’ve turned from truth their face


Today the blind can learn to see

Lost sheep quite easily found

For Jesus’ blood has set us free

To walk on holy ground


Our souls to God are dead no more

When light is found inside

When in one’s heart His written law

Has turned life’s sinful tide


Best turn to walk with Jesus now

Best live by Heaven’s rules

Trusting by faith The Father’s vow

To die no more like fools


Let’s live this life in safety mode

With nothing left to hide

Walking the straight and narrow road

With fire glowing inside


Travelling Jesus’ chosen way

Guided by truth and love

Let’s live forever and a day

Here and when above


With peace with joy with love galore

Where every need is met

We’ve life’s abundance evermore

And nothing to regret…..

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.
