As Never Before


The fields ripen with golden wheat

Sheep graze everywhere

Anoint with grace more servant’s feet

Your word in love to share


O Lord my God Your pastures green

Your sheep grow fat and still

Cause living light to intervene

According to Your will


Man’s welfare is of grave concern

The outcome of the meek

For help O Lord to You I turn

Your mighty arm I seek


Within life’s furnace set them free

Help fight the common foe

Help them through their own Red Sea

Across their Jordan flow


You are The Lord there’s none besides

You’re God creation’s King

You call the wind You turn the tides

Each season’s song to sing


You gave me faith You’ve heard my cry

Power to win each day

Until I rise or one day die

Walking Salvation’s Way


Through faith in Christ yet hear this prayer

To You The Great I Am

For those still lost, from one who’ll share

The supper of The Lamb


Through death’s dark vale You’ll comfort me

Giving a crown of gold

In Jesus’ hand I’ll rise to be

Safe in my Saviour’s fold.....

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.
