No One's Like Him

No One's Like Him

 

There’s no one like the living Christ

The Lamb who chose to die

Who’s sinless life God sacrificed

To raise His flock on high

 

Jesus! God’s Word who walked the earth

The Father’s begotten Son

Conceived as man of virgin birth

That Heaven’s will be done

 

This is the man who died to sin

The God who suffered pain

Who came death’s keys and life to win

That man be born again

 

Obedient to His bitter end

Suffering on The Tree

His gospel for the world to send

To set His people free

 

There’s no one like The One who died

The Truth made flesh and bone

Risen, reigning glorified

Sovereign on Heaven’s throne

 

The Seed of Virtue multiplied

Author of Heaven’s plan

Who hears, sees, yet most denied

Knowing the thoughts of man

 

Humble, gentle faithful and strong

Courageous true divine

Serving teaching correcting wrong

That life be yours and mine

 

Unselfish is His life to see

Unselfish is His love

Who was, is who always will be

The only Way above......

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.
