Thank You

       

I thank You Lord in many ways

In deed in prayer in song

In gratitude Your bride gives praise

Throughout the whole day long

 

I thank You for Your guiding hand

Your Spirit’s warm embrace

Your secrets that I understand

Your wonders and Your grace

 

I thank You for life’s bread and wine

Your Ghost & Flame within

For all Your love that now is mine

And victory over sin

 

I thank my God that You are You

Such joy floods deep inside

You gave to me a name brand new

And chose me as Your bride

 

I thank You Lord for making whole

This child that once was dead

You’ve saved my body mind and soul

And fed me living Bread

 

I thank You for Your Holy Dove

Your Promise made on high

To all with faith through Jesus’ love

To live and never die

 

I thank You for Your robe of light

Life’s joy and wondrous peace

That now in You my goal’s in sight

Where life will never cease

 

My gratitude’s the highest praise

That I my God can give

So now I’ll thank You all the days

You’ve given free to live……

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.
