The Bride Gives Birth (1)


In righteousness we’ve sought to grow

We’ve sought through Christ The Way

We know as bride we need to sow

Life’s living seed today


Of you great mother, now we speak

Whose breast we suckled long

Thank God that now your children seek

To spread Salvation’s song


No matter where The Father sends

How far we may depart

The love and joy we’ve had to share

Hold precious in your heart


You know too well the need is great

The Truth we all have heard

In Christ, we can’t procrastinate

Or fail to share The Word


On sound foundations strong and true

Within God’s faithful hands

We’ll still remain in touch with you

Both here and far off lands


As cunning as a snake we’ll be

As gentle as a dove

As far as eagles eyes can see

We’ll spread Salvation’s love


We need to plough the hardest field

Quench yet the driest ground

We’ll sow, to reap a precious yield

Enormously profound


I write, because I’m pregnant too!

With children laden down

I hope one day to be like you

And see them wear a crown…..

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.
