Who Can Hinder

Who Can Hinder


Who can hinder the rising sun?

The stars reflecting light

The moon upon its daily run

Appearing at night


As long as these both rise and shine

And Heaven’s high above

So long will Christ The living Vine

Produce sweet fruits of love


So who can stop the gratitude?

The tears of joy that flow

The progress of the multitude

Whilst to The Cross we go


Stand up make Heaven’s Truth your choice

Allow the facts to stand

Arise and shine at Jesus’ voice

Hold tight His mighty hand


Nothing can stop your victory

Prevent you rising high

Your childlike eyes one day to see

Who chose for you to die


Be bold be strong give Christ your trust

Let faith stretch forth its wing

Though all around you turns to dust

With love let praises ring


Though all of hell may challenge you

Though Satan recalls your shame

Rely on God each day anew

By calling Jesus’ name


Let Jesus come within to shine

Let Jesus arm prevail

Let Heaven’s love be yours and mine

While sun and moon grow pale…..

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.
