Lord, Lord

Has Jesus Christ absolved your shame?

Replaced your sin with song?

Does in your heart burn Heavenís Flame

Convicting, when youíre wrong

Is Christ The Lord, in all you do?†††† Lk.6:46

The guide, of all you say?

Have you truly been born anew?

To walk Godís chosen Way?

Is faith and trust so close at hand?

You fear no more the sword?

Through love, you heed the royal command?

Of Christ, your reigning Lord?

Do you obey The Masterís voice?

Trust Christ Redemptionís Seed

Consult Godís Son free of choice?

In thought, in word and deed

Though oft itís hard to walk lifeís road

To drink Salvationís cup

Or yield; to Jesusí spurring goad

So God can lift us up

Yet those who do; will never fail

Theyíll stand the test of time

Theyíll rest, when others burn in jail

For all their wilful crime

Godís sheep with Heavenís Flame within

The Holy Ghost inside

Those washed in blood of every sin

On Heavenís Wind will ride

With Christ as Lord with Christ as King

Through Heavenís Royal command

Weíll rise through faith while angels sing

Into our Promised Land.....†

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.
