Lost & Blind

Lost & Blind


When Heaven’s Way we seek to find

When grace is one’s desire

When love is for the lost and blind

Salvation rains with Fire


Burning with love glowing with care

More radiant than the sun

Dawning upon a sinner’s prayer

Victory to be won


For those in darkness seeking Light

For children lost and cold

Forgiveness comes with robes of white

With crowns of purest gold


Yet will one’s trust in Jesus stand?

Will heart and soul be one?

When death’s cold hand invades the land

Belonging Christ God’s Son


Pray faith will be abundant then

Pray strength throughout the war

Courage to face the scourge of men

Knocking on Satan’s door


Stand firm when soldier of The Cross

Consider Christ who died

God won’t allow to suffer loss

That must be multiplied


So heed the facts Christ came to bring

The truth He died to give

Life’s ways to teach to live and sing

That others too may live


Take care that no one takes you prize

Obey The Master’s rules

Leave the devil, ignore man’s lies

And walk nor live with fools.....

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.
