Blessed Assurance


How I bless that sweet September

The day my Saviour came

How distinctly I remember

When love condemned my shame


Gladly I gave my heavy load

All filth I cast aside

By faith I took life’s narrow road

With Heaven’s Word as guide


Darkness began to fade away

My soul could see The Light

How could one fail why would one stray

From which was plain in sight


The bible’s true! God’s Promise real

Salvation’s on the wing

I have His Word His Holy Seal

As heir to Heaven’s King


I’ve seen The Truth I know The Way

My future God’s made known

I’ll live to serve until the day

He calls me to His throne


With grace I’ll meet eternity

Through Christ I’ll never die

His blood has washed has set me free

And paved my path on high


I’m spreading Truth to those I meet

Family neighbours and friends

“Come join me at The Saviour’s feet

Before your life here ends


Our God is right His Promise sure

He’ll meet your need to stand

He’ll give you strength to all endure

When taking Jesus’ hand”.....

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.
