Let There Be Light

ďWith You; my God, I long to dwell

Where darkness canít come in

Within Your Light be safe from hell

Completely free of sin

Come shine in me my God I pray

Let darkness swift depart

Allow me live with You today

Through Christ within my heart

For Jesus said, ďI am The Light

The Truth, The Life, and WayĒ

So come Lord Saviour end this plight

Come in my heart to stay

Iíve searched for truth I did not know

True Light I failed to find

Now that Iíve found Your Way to go

No longer am I blind

You saw me faulting all this time

Youíve witnessed all Iíve done

I now repent my every crime

Forgive through Christ Your Son

With heart and soul I call Your name

Seeking Your love and grace

Believing Jesus bore my shame

That I may see Your face

In hope by faith I came to You

In search of Truth and Light

Since darkness fails through birth anew

Iíve strength to fight the fight

With all I am, Father divine

Your endless praise Iíll sing

I know forever life is mine

And I am Yours my KingĒ.....

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.
