Forever Joy


Forever more now always sure

My joy will never cease

For You are life’s eternal Door

To everlasting peace


To me You’ve given life my King

Raising my soul from death

In victory love’s sweet song to sing

Riding on Heaven’s Breath


Life’s Counsellor! The Holy Ghost

Your Promise from above

Teaches me whilst His humble host

To live and serve in love


I bless the day I first believed

When Truth began to reign

Freeing of sin, as faith received

Brought grace to live again


Lead me to Your Promised Land

Soften my heart of stone

In Yours I pray hold fast my hand

Your Way make now my own


You are The Only God on high

The King of kings unique

Loving so much you chose to die

For broken souls who seek


I’ve come; my God because of Christ

Your righteousness revealed

The spotless Lamb You sacrificed

That death to Life would yield


I thank my God for saving me

For selfless love divine

For Jesus’ blood setting me free

And Heaven’s will now mine.....

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.
