Witness the Truth


Whenever shadows deceive us

When truth few people share

Many lost will not believe us

Still others fail to care


Looking back to Jesus’ calling

Further back to Jesus’ tree

Now consider how appalling 

When countless fail to see


Yet deep in hell they’ll understand

They’ll gnash their teeth and bow

With Satan’s mark upon their hand

God’s ‘Too late’ on their brow


In hell’s deep pit no sun will rise

No rain will ever fall

Eternity! Will hear their cries

But none will heed their call


Consider! One of these is you

Another one is me

Would it help to change your view?

To set the captive free


Let this world The Truth be given

Reveal the devil’s lies

So the nails in Jesus driven

Will open blinded eyes


Praise The Lord for John and Peter

Matthew, Mark, Luke and Paul

Without their help life would teeter

And many more would fall


Let’s arise and tell Love’s story

Tell the world Jesus’ tale 

Lift up high God’s Lamb in glory

Help others not to fail…..

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.
