Before the Cloud


Then suddenly the day will break

When Jesus’ cloud will rise

Prepare us Lord and from us take

Veils from off our eyes


The facts; allow more children see

Your Word more sinners hear

Allow The Truth to set more free

And know the end is near


You are The One who made us Lord

Who Adam formed of earth

Please save more children from the sword

Through Christ and second birth


Reveal the consequence of sin

Rewards of selfless love

The wondrous Way on earth to win

Eternity above


Your name my God, more need to fear

Your boundless love to feel

So teach and lead more children here

Through Heaven’s Flame & Seal


The Comforter! The Holy Ghost

Your promised One to share

Life’s Shield against the devil’s host

One’s helper in despair


Lord, make quite plain what Heaven’s planned

Through Prophets truthful Seers

Speak to the heads of church and land

Before Jesus appears


The night’s far spent the day draws nigh

Lord finish what’s begun

Who can afford on earth to die

Without Your Lamb and Son……

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.
