He Is .............

He Is...

Father,

Your Son, Jesus,
The Unforgetable One,
The Truth-Pointer,
Leads us to the Sacred Realm,
Your Heavenly Kingdom.

He leads us from the soul's Egypt,
Walks before us from the Valley of Trouble, for
Jesus IS Hope,

When sin lies in wait at the soul's door and
The soul's room is dark, and
I search with blind stumble,
Jesus IS the Oak Door I open and
Light fills the room, I see,

When the flesh spirit-smothers and
My soul's breath shortens and struggles and
My life is marked,
Jesus IS the One-who-Frees with Living Breath.

When doubt stiffens belief and
Mistrust hardens into sadness and
Death strains for victory,
Jesus IS the Warm Blood of a born-again life.

Father,

As night brought Nicodemus to Jesus living and
He found birth anew; again,
Night brought him to Jesus dead and
He found the Tomb of Life; so,

Frommy soul's night I go to Jeus:
He IS the Sacred Sphere, Joy's Domain;
He IS the Heavenly Kingdom,
He is the Womb of the unmasked life.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
