Heaven Prepared

Heaven Prepared

 

Following light and starry host

After each plant and tree 

For Father Son and Holy Ghost

Adam was made to be

 

Though not for trouble not for strife

Not sickness death or pain

But fellowship and endless life

Wholly this world to reign

 

Furnished was food water and air

The sun and moon above

Abundance flourished everywhere

Through true undying love

 

With joy with peace delights galore

The world at his command

Nothing fell short from Adam’s store 

As was and always planned

 

And so it still remains today

Where every need is met

Yet many go the devil’s way

Ignorant of regret

 

Darkness will make us deaf and blind

Selfishness leads off course

Yet love will raise dead souls to find

Life’s one eternal Source

 

Life’s Vine, Life’s Root, Life’s Corner Stone

Through Hope in faith to trust

In Jesus Christ God’s Son alone

Whilst all else turns to dust

 

With eyes trained high on Zion Hill

Conquering self within

Let’s seek to do The Father’s will

Our neighbour’s soul to win.....

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.
