I Won't Come Down (1)

† † † † I Won't Come Down (1)

Iíve seen the depths that man can fall

The shameful ways to hell

I wonít come down, Iíve heard ďThe CallĒ††††††† Ne.2:17

I know the truth too well

Iím spirit drawn to Heavenís Light

In Christ I have my crown

By grace Iím known and reached this height

So now I wonít come down

When Love stopped to say ďHelloĒ

His Spirit; came to stay

I wonít come down, though hail or snow

From Christ Iíll never stray

In Truth my walls are high and wide

Made strong of living stone

The Holy Promise deep inside

Wonít let me down alone

Heaven is with me everywhere!

In peace, in war, in pain

In all I do, Godís here to share

I wonít come down again

I wonít come down for all the earth!

For silver, gold, nor jewel

I know what true salvationís worth

And God, made me no fool

No matter what some think of me?

What nonsense people say?

Christ Jesus died to set me free

And free; Iím going to stay

In Christ alone, Iím satisfied

My cup doth overflow

I wonít come down, nor have I tried

Thereís nowhere else to go..Ö

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.
