Salvation Way

     Salvation Way

Who is now lost and who is found?

Who to The Truth is blind?

Who’ll get to walk on Holy Ground?

Who’ll get the facts to find?


How do we live why do we die?

At what or who’s command?

Is there a God who dwells on high?

Are all things in His hand?


Once; the mystery of life was sealed

Man wandered round like sheep

But now the secret’s been revealed

The Truth is ours to keep


There is a God no eye can see

Both hell and Heaven’s true

Eternal life is gratis free

When truly born anew


Who’s heart believes Christ chose on earth

To die upon a tree

Who’s gospel leads to second birth

Who’s blood will set us free


The bible’s here for all to read

God’s Kingdom starts within

Wherein The Word is like a seed

From which all things begin


To each on earth God gives a choice

Through which we stand or fall

Through which we’ll grieve or we’ll rejoice

When Jesus makes His call


Salvation starts and ends with Christ

Life’s ever flowing Stream

For this God’s Lamb was sacrificed

For this! He reigns supreme.....

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.
