Allegiance

† † † † †Allegiance is the Key

Who would have thought this child of shame

Would climb in Christ so high?

Receive from God a brand new name?

His Promise not to die

The world was once my everything

Till Heaven showed The Way

Iíd never thought my heart could sing

As is through Christ today

When covered with Salvationís Flame

Submerged in Heavenís Light

This child received for rags of shame

A robe of purest white

Until Christ Jesus comes again

Allegiance; is the key

With rod and staff, The Lord must reign

If Iím to stay so free

It matters not how deep the pain

How high in life the cost

Without The Lamb my lifeís in vain

Without His hand Iím lost

Encompassed by His chosen bride

Encouraged by Lifeís Dove

Secure and warm, this child inside

Can share Godís grace and love

I feel His presence deep in prayer

Godís love within my song

The arms of Christ are always there

His councilís never wrong

Fanatic, yes! Iím Jesusí tool

Some say Iím quite insane

But God says Iím a precious jewel

Refined and born againÖ..†

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.
