Just A Moment Please.....

Please spare a moment of your time

Lend Truth my friend an ear

Let wisdom speak of love sublime

Let grace remove your fear

 

Allow with joy my heart to sing

My precious soul to cry

Revealing He who’s Lord and King

Who chose for us to die

 

Allow me tell you of The Christ

My God as flesh and bone

The Lamb my Father sacrificed

To melt a heart of stone

 

As mortal man, the truth to tell

The living God came down

Even descending into hell

Retrieving keys and crown

 

The keys our father Adam lost

Authority to reign

Obedience chose and paid the cost

In such tremendous pain

 

A fool can’t see The Truth, my friend

To facts the world is blind

Only the few may comprehend

Who have a change of mind

 

Who’ll seek and find The Way to Life

Who leave hell’s highway wide

Who live to love and not to strife

Through Jesus glorified

 

Only a few a trifling few

From every tribe and land

Will live by grace through birth anew

As Heaven always planned.....

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.
