How Great Life Is

How Great Life Is


How great life is when shame has gone

When forth God sends His Light

When love’s revealed through Christ God’s Son

And darkness takes its flight


How great life is when God plants seed

When love begins to root

When grace provides every need

And Heaven sees sweet fruit


How great life is when hearts entwine

When souls in faith agree

When Heaven’s Light begins to shine

And eyes begin to see


Oh Lord my God how blessed am I

How wonderful I feel

I run I jump I laugh and cry

Knowing that You are real


You are The Lord You’re Heaven’s King

Maker of all I see

You are the source of everything

That was and is to be


You’re Heaven’s Lamb on Heaven’s throne

The Only Way on high

The Love that melts a heart of stone

The Christ who chose to die


You are my Guide You are my Goal

Life’s Wine and Living Bread

The precious Saviour of my soul

And Lifter of my head


I’m blessed my God and so much more

I’m loved I’m saved and free

I’m blessed to know The Father’s Door

Has opened wide for me…..

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.
