     “Hear Ye Hear Ye Hear Ye”

Wherever yet we tend to go

However far or wide

The earth can witness Heaven’s flow

Can hear God’s chosen bride

 

God’s Word will scold exalt and guide

Convict of sin and shame

Will comfort, heal will turn life’s tide

To glorify Christ’s name

 

Salvation flows through every land

Life’s tree bears fruit of Light

Through Christ God’s Lamb we understand

To do what’s good and right

 

But who’ll pay heed what God will say?

Who’ll search for life anew?

Discontinue one’s own sweet way?

Who’ll change the things they do?

 

Who’ll come to Christ on bended knee?

Who’ll seek The Truth on high?

Who’ll see what none before could see?

And cease to wonder why

 

Within who’s soul will grace adhere?

Who’ll eat God’s living Word?

Who’ll bend an ear the facts to hear?

Who’ll live by what they’ve heard?

 

Who’ll take to heart The living Christ?

Accept Him as God’s Son?

As Heaven’s Lamb was sacrificed?

That Heavens will be done?

 

The tomb of Christ’s in you and I

Each child who’s born again

By grace ordained never to die

But with God’s Son to reign.....

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.
