Blessed Is the Heart with Truth & L

Blessed Is the Heart with Truth & Light


Law to arrogance void of sight

To prideful souls astray

Blessed is the heart with Truth &Light

Revealing Heaven’s Way


Blessed is the child humble at heart

The meek on bended knee

Surely The Lord will peace impart

And set bound spirits free


Blessed is the man woman and child

Who seek Salvation’s Dawn

Who’ve quit their wayward running wild

To walk through life reborn


Blessed is the child with godly fear

Who seeks but righteous gain

Love’s grace will dry every tear

And take away their pain


Blessed is the child who mourns today

Who’s spirit’s mild and poor

Who trust in God, who Christ obey

And through true faith endure


Blessed is the child suffering now

Who graciously forgive

Who’s knees to Jesus humbly bow

Who to His glory live


Blessed are those who hunger and thirst  

For rectitude each day

Who place their blessed Saviour first

And neighbours on The Way


Blessed is the heart of selflessness

The soul that walks in peace

The child who’s aim is righteousness

Through He! Who’ll never cease…..

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.
