Will You Help?....

    Will You Help?....

Support those scrambling crag and slope

Life’s mountain steeps to climb

Teach who fail through life to cope

Help save someone from crime


Nothing should rob us of our crown

No one should keep us low

Nothing should chain God’s servants down

Nor hinder blessing’s flow


But still so much can stop life’s stream

Obstructions yet remain

Too oft beyond man’s wildest dream

We break beneath the strain


By far; the tongue’s our greatest foe

The ear’s not far behind

Both can hinder God’s children grow

And make the wisest blind


Thirst for silver, hunger for gold

Lust for power and fame

Through such; to Satan lives are sold

To end in total shame


But Christ will help who err and stray

Will help the worst in sin

Will hinder rot can stop decay

Will help us life to win


Christ can help who’ve disobeyed

Can help so not to fail

Can help the least to meet the grade

Can free those chained in jail


We too can help a sinner walk

Backsliders who’ll reform

Can give direction at life’s fork

Will rescue from the storm..…

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.
