Personal Praise


You are The Christ, The King of kings

Creation’s Lord divine

To You will soar on angel wings

This heartfelt song of mine


With all my love with all my might

With soul full blessed peace

I’ll raise my voice to bring delight

To You who brought release


Your grace my God’s of great renown

Your love all peoples sing

To You The Lamb with Heaven’s crown

Will endless praises ring


Infinite power is Yours Lord

Your Love‘s creating love

Although Your tongue’s a two edged sword

You’re gentle as a dove


For You I’ll dance to You I’ll sing

As though before Your throne

Eager forever pleasure to bring

For You my God alone


You are The One who made my soul

This heart that beats inside

The only One who’ll make me whole

Beyond life’s great divide   


You are The Rock on which I stand

My Anchor Ship and Sail

Heaven and earth’s at Your command

You’re God and cannot fail 


For me You suffered so much pain

For me my Lord You died

For me a ring and crown to gain

To reign as my King’s bride…..

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.
