We Need but Whisper.....

† † †We Need but Whisper.....

How oft in life a child may pray?

Is God alive and well?

What is to happen judgment day?

Who can be saved from hell?

God sees the heart trusting in gold

He sees who play the fool

He sees each soul to Satan sold

Who lets the devil rule?

God sees the sorry heart contrite

The soul love sets aglow

Seeking to find His guiding Light

Revealing where to go

God yearns to give His Lamp Divine

His Promise; man to share

He only needs the slightest sign

The whisper of a prayer

From palace or the dankest slum

In silk or wrapped in shame

Godís Guarantee gratis will come

To all who call His name

Whoíll place their hope in Jesus Christ?

Whoís faith is in Godís Son

Who God The Father sacrificed

That endless life be won

Thereís nothing more for one to do

Nothing we need to pay

Thatís why its grasped but by a few

Thatís why most people stray

Thatís why the blind remain still lost

Thatís why they hear no call

Nothing they seek involves no cost

So with the proud theyíll fall.....

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.
