Ignite the World

        Ignite the World

Whilst Christ remains a mystery

Whilst darkness reigns the land

The world at large will fail to see

Will never understand

 

But Heaven’s Light has been revealed

The Truth these eyes behold

Through Jesus’ blood my soul is healed

Let all the world be told

 

Accept The Christ, as God’s true Son

The purpose of the tree

Believe the mighty works He’s done

Receive; what none can see

 

The faithfulness of God on high

The love He has to give

The grace to see one’s self should die

In order then to live

 

Believe in Christ; Life’s Humble Vine

The raiser of the dead

The Truth, The Father’s precious wine

And perfect living Bread

 

Choosing to die to set us free

Life’s facts to open eyes

More secrets of The Lord to see

Each joy and great surprise

 

When changed, we’ll fly just like a bird

When Christ alone we trust

Our praise of Him will still be heard

When mountains turn to dust

 

To serve in truth as God’s delight

We’ll join Him in the air

Receiving robes of shining white

Our wedding feast to share..…Amen…

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.
