When the future lies behind us

When we hide beneath God’s wing

Where the devil cannot find us

When Jesus Christ is King


When no one kills when no one lies

When doubt marries defeat

Where love shatters demonic ties

Love’s work is near complete


When faith lays wide salvation’s door

When wisdom takes command

Sin will become a foreign shore

As always Heaven planned


When darkness bows to Heaven’s Light

When man’s to God restored

Rags will be changed to robes of white

Through Jesus Christ the Lord


No one from life will ever stray

No one will wear a frown

When night gives way to endless day

And death gives up its crown


When all arrive who Jesus calls

When cleansed of wayward ways

When living stones replace church walls

God’s house will ring with praise


When children live to see no grave

When strange is every pain

When life to death no more is slave

Jesus has come again


When all God’s sheep are in His hand

When evil power’s gone

We’ll see we’ll know we’ll understand

The victory of God’s Son……

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.
