Eat It Drink It


Who wants of God must want of Christ?

Love first His Lamb & Son

Must learn that He was sacrificed

That endless life be won


Beliefs and creeds are everywhere

Religion seems to thrive

There’re many gods receiving prayer

But only one’s alive


One God alone one Lord & King

On Heaven’s throne aflame

The One to whom The angles sing

Almighty! Is His name


Jesus! Jesus the perfect man

The God who walked the earth

Fulfilling love’s eternal plan

As child of virgin birth


But who’ll believe such grace displayed?

Accept God’s living Word?

Allow The Truth their hearts invade?

And live by what they’ve heard


Eat it, drink it, give it a try

Study it when alone

Open your heart learn to fly

Before The Author’s throne


Read the bible front to rear

Examine it for fault

Let Jesus fill your heart with cheer

Your precious soul with salt


Open your heart widen your view

Let Truth your soul set free

Why did He die if not for you?

Why does He live in me.....?

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.
