Wealthy in Christ.....

       Wealthy in Christ.....

The world’s content in running wild

Fickle and fancy free

But Jesus wants her reconciled

Through such as you and me

 

Christ’s bride is rich beyond compare

More wealth than king or queen

We’ve each enough the world to share

With treasures yet unseen

 

Where one has beaten self within

Where hearts glorify love

Where souls refuse to walk with sin

Where Truth has won the day

 

This life’s a war, a testing ground

Where devils love to roam

Where Satan’s ream cannot be found

Where Christ has made His home

 

Where Christ God’s Lamb becomes our Gate

Fire becomes our wall

Where word and deed show God is great

Satanic crowns will fall

 

For man gives Satan all his powers

He’s impotent without

But then life’s crown again is ours

When faith takes place of doubt

 

When on the cross love won the war

Life’s keys Christ gave His bride

With health great wealth and so much more

The devil tried to hide

 

Its time the world should understand

Repent and start anew

To walk to live as Jesus planned

As Heavens’ chosen few…..

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.
