† † † To be as Christ

Like Jesus Christ is my desire

In thought, in word and deed

To drink His blood receive His Fire

And from His flesh to feed

I need The Truth with holes in feet

The Seed of life and grace

Until the journeyís quite complete

And look into His face

I need to keep The Way in view

As Enoch did before

To walk in faith receive Your Dew

The Lamp through Heavenís Door

The Passport to Your Promised Land

The Key to life above

The Counsellor to understand

Your precious Holy Dove

I pray my God, that Iíll be true

With Jesus all the way

Embrace this child and bring me through

To live with Him one day

Must I submit to just one piece?

One share of Christ divine

My quest for more will never cease

Till all He is, is mine

Till all of me, is found in You

Till You are deep in me

Lord only then will I be new

And Satan finally free

Your promise Lord I pray be mine

Your Spirit Truth & Light

To drink from Lifeís eternal wine

And strength to win the fight......

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.
