There's Work for You!

THERE'S WORK FOR YOU!

ďCome dry your eyes and look at me
I wish to speak with you
Some things I have for you to see
And work! For you to do

I heard your cry Iíve seen your need
Your heart is true I know
Hear my child what Iíve decreed
Then in my name youíll go

Throughout the world, my children die
Just as the devilís planned
They need no more to live a lie
For all is in my hand

I see their sorrows, and their pain
Their sin their foolish doubt
But through my Son no lifeís in vain
If theyíd but turn about

For I canít move, till their return
Until I hear them pray
Iím sending you that they may learn
To walk my righteous way

Now go, my child through every land
Go speak the words Iíve said
If they donít learn to understand
Theyíll fail to count their dead

Their stench is more than I can bear
Their shame is plain in view
The filth they do they just donít care
All this Iím telling you

Step out my child go forth in haste
I want my wrath to cease
Go tell them thereís no time to waste
I long to give them peaceĒ.....

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.
