Create in Me


Remember not my filthy ways

Consume all trace of shame

Lord set my heart my soul ablaze

Cause to fear Your name


Stretch forth Your mighty arm O Lord

Hold fast in Yours, my hand

Rescue me from the coming sword

From all the devil’s planned


Allow me through Salvation’s womb

Receive eternal Breath

Let fire each evil thought consume

Release my soul from death


Let strife not rob me of my rest

Let love reign true within

As far as east is from the west

Cast every thought of sin


My neighbours Lord I all forgive 

Trouble I wish to none

I pray by Jesus’ name they’ll live

That Heaven’s will be done


I pray my selfish deeds to change

That patience would increase

That love; my life would so arrange

To walk the path of peace


Let Heaven’s will become now mine

Embrace this child of woe

Caress my soul with fire divine

Till clean as virgin snow


Soften my heart Lord, make it warm

Till gentle as a dove

Then in Your hand through me perform

A ministry of love……

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.
