God Asked Noah
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

God asked Noah

Before the world was drenched in shame

Ere Satan reigned in man

The Father Son and Holy Flame

Wrote down salvationís plan

Then God told Noah build a boat

By faith to walk inside

But only eight were kept afloat

All unbelievers died

ďI thank You Lord for saving me

When I was drowning too

From certain death You set me free

And gave me life anew

Allow me in Your boat now sail

Iíve heard my Saviourís call

In Christ I know Iíll never fail

Nor from Your grace will fall

I yearn to be a lifeboat Lord

Travelling on the sea

Calling more fish to climb on board

As Jesus did for me

With Christ Iíll sail to far off shores

In truth from port to port

Weíll free the catch from Satanís claws

Weíll fish till all are caught

The wind is right the course is set

With Jesus at the helm

Letís hoist the sail cast wide the net

Letís fish throughout Your realm

Letís cast our nets in every land

Sailing in one accord

Teaching the fish to understand

How safe life is on board.....

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.
