Alone (2).....

                 Alone (2).....

We need The Lord, the grace He brings

We long for something new

We’d speak with Jesus face to face

And walk in love found true

 

Yet few; can hear The Father’s voice

So few receive life’s call

Till grace changes our primal choice

One’s flesh is bound to fall

 

Dying alone cynics in pain

Away from Heavens shores

All remedies being in vain

Where Christ is not the cause

 

Thousands of thousand crowds can stand

More million smile and sing

But till The Lord takes hold one’s hand

Relief can no-one bring

 

Through husband, wife, family and friend

Upon their; love we’ll ride

Nothing and no one in the end

Can span the great divide

 

Yet through God’s Lamb, The Truth took form

When temple curtains tore

We see our refuge from the storm

We see Salvation’s shore

 

But Satan seeks to keep us blind

Obscure the sight of man

Withholding truth from all mankind

Hiding Salvation’s plan

 

Let no one be the devil’s fool

On Christ alone depend

Obedience is the wise man’s tool

For loneliness to end…..PTO…..

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.
