My Beloved

 

Rejoice in what your Maker’s planned

Beyond your wildest dream

Your name’s engraved within His hand

Within life’s book supreme

 

Take care my child walk Heaven’s Way

Leave foolish cares behind

Cast off the things that lead astray

And that which clouds the mind

 

I see you through a father’s eyes

Both child and full grown man

Be patient now grow strong and wise

Fulfil Salvation’s plan

 

Let Truth caress your heart with Light

Embrace your thirsty soul

Through faith put every foe to flight

Towards your unseen goal

 

Let Christ my son accompany you

Let shadows swift depart

Lift up your eyes through life anew

With Fire in your heart

 

Hold fast the keys to all my doors

My blood runs through your veins

The love I have my child is yours

As long as Jesus reigns

 

Allow my joy be made complete

Walk true Salvation’s trail

Grow strong sitting at Jesus’ feet

Watching the devil fail

 

Stand firm before the great unknown

Beyond death’s gaping jaws

Faithful before your Father’s throne

I’ll link my hand with yours…..

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.
