Jesus Saves

 

The Lord God’s real His promise true

Almighty is His name

He sees the lovely things we do

And those stinking with shame

 

He sees the heart each shameful soul

Each sin polluted mind

Each selfish want each evil goal

And through such filth walk blind

 

Creation’s seen through eyes of fools 

Yet who of us can hear

Shunning our God breaking His rules

Without a trace of fear

 

Wisdom and knowledge we abuse

Stumbling through the night

With every wind we changing views

Sinning with great delight

 

Like rebels on a wayward fling

Children without a guide

We’re disrespecting everything

His righteous hand’s supplied

 

We pillage rape we vandalise 

We kill with raging hate

God’s perfect love we criticise

And close to life the gate

 

We see religion through a veil

There’s nothing when we die

That God’s a children’s fairy tale

Satan’s a bare faced lie

 

We’ll scandalize God’s perfect name

Reject Salvation’s plea

We’ll live we’ll die we’ll rise in shame

Eternal hell to see.....

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.
