Reach out & Serve


With Gifts from God there’s much to do

Through talents rich bestowed

Through Truth through love when born anew

To walk God’s chosen road


Although this world’s in such a state

In filth her children die

Masses in church procrastinate

Whilst raising hands on high


To glorify The Lord God King

To magnify His name

We open mouths praises to sing

Without a hint of shame


Come forth and serve by sun and star

Step out and lend a hand

Venture in faith near and far

Let others understand


Allow them hear The Truth within

Witness God’s grace and Light

That countless more life’s crown may win 

Equip them for the fight


For rich are we who truly see 

Who’ve learned and walk The Way

Who’ve found through Jesus liberty

To serve Him whilst we may


No goodly lamp should ever hide

Nor loving tongue be still

No helping hand should be denied

Doing our Father’s will


Arise true soldier of the cross

Serve God in every land

Whatever cost whatever loss?

Stretch forth salvation’s 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.
