Know God

Know God


To know God as life’s true spring

To know His love and grace

To know He’s Lord of everything

 To know we’ll see His face


We’ll love our neighbours left and right

Ahead and those behind

Help yellow, brown, red, black or white

Life’s narrow path to find


We’ll love The Word God’s Christ & Son

Each wayward sheep forlorn

The will on earth that must be done

Facing tomorrows dawn


The dawn where every heart is bared

Each naked soul’s displayed

Each word and deed lovingly shared

By Heaven’s grace conveyed


Love’s the nature of Heaven’s King

The source of His command

The tune through life to dance and sing

Toward The Promised Land


Love is the way, the door, the key

Most eagerly received

Power divine complete and free

Through Him we have believed


Believing in The Word at hand

Obedient to its source

We learn our God to understand

And walk His chosen course


Know good, know bad, know right and wrong

Know Jesus’ serenade

Through dancing singing His righteous song

Know God through love displayed....

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.
