If You Are Truly There

If You Are Truly There


Broken hearted lost and alone

She voiced her solemn prayer

Lord hear my plea my tearful groan

If truly You are there


If You are God and You can see

If You can hear my cry

I pray You come and change me

And with You never die


I pray Your love will keep me warm

Stretch forth Your guiding hand

Assist me through life’s every storm

Giving power to stand


I’ve heard that You can answer prayer

Your Spirit’s selfless Love

So really God if You are there

Please help me from above


Confirm You love enough to save

Reveal You truly care

Come free me from the yawning grave

If truly You are there


I too would rise beyond the clouds

I too would live in peace

Far above the maddening crowds

Where joy will never cease


Give faith that I may know You Lord

True strength that I may stand

Allow my life to be restored

Through grace within Your hand


I’m calling loud I’m calling clear  

I’ve opened You my door

Lord Jesus save my soul down here

Recall my past no more.....

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.
