I Won't Come Down (2
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

† † † † I Won't Come Down (2

Since first I heard my Saviourís call

Iím healed of every hurt

By faith walks now lifeís righteous wall

A child, once common dirt

Some time it took to climb this height

Through sweat, troubles and tears

I wonít come down, however slight

Not in a million years

I wonít come down my Fatherís wall

His temple built in Christ

I wonít come down, nor will I fall

The costís too highly priced

In Christ I stand, and here Iíll stay

Each trial in Him Iíll face

I wonít come down, by anyway

At last I know my place

I wonít come down, but stand until

In Truth Iíve reached my best

Learning, doing my Fatherís will

Iíll pass lifeís every test

Thereís far too much my God has done

Too much Heís had to pay

The love He shares though Christ His Son

Wonít let me down, no way!

Itís by Godís grace Iíve come this high

While Satan wages war

Alert; stood here with open eye

Iíll play the fool no more

On eagles wing instead Iíll rise

The devilís fought and lost

Iíll fly in Godís eternal skies

With Christ, who paid the cost.....

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.
