Who Live in Fear

Who Live in Fear


Who fear within hell’s fire to fall

To die consumed in shame

Need lift their heads in faith to call

On Jesus’ holy name


Far and beyond all other names

Devine with total might

Able to free from Satan’s flames

And fill one’s soul with Light


Able to heal able to save

To lift a sinner’s head

Lock Satan’s jaw, lock tight the grave

And raise the very dead


He’s Christ God’s Word incarnate

The Lamb enthroned on high

To whom the devil prostrate

Will beg in vain to die


Forever and a day he’ll burn

Hopeless cry and squeal

With sinners who refuse to learn

And in Christ’s name appeal


We all have sinned and fallen short

Shameful one’s life must end 

Unless by grace and Christ’s report

Our knees to Jesus bend


Before The Living Christ we bow

With contrite broken heart

To pray forgiveness here and now

And plead a brand new start


God’s promised word will surely stand

Salvation will appear

Deliverance with open hand

Will vanquish every fear.....

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.
