God Knows the True
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

      God Knows the True

Christ calls His flock unto the fold

His children to The Light

He seeks the young He seeks the old

He seeks from black to white

 

He calls the rich the beggar too

The thief yet running wild

He’ll raise the dead to birth anew

That all be reconciled

 

No need to fight no need to crawl

No righteous deed to claim

God calls His children one and all

To trust in Jesus’ name

 

Life comes to those who’ve heard God’s Word

Accept that Christ is true

Who turn to live the truth they’ve heard

In everything they do

 

God knows who’s true at Jesus’ feet

He sees who just pretend

Let Jesus deal with tare and wheat

It’s He; who sees the end

 

God knows alone who’s right and wrong

He knows each goat and sheep

So sing in Christ a faithful song

Until the final leap

 

Helping the frail, helping the weak

Serving as Jesus’ wife

Hinder no one willing to seek

The One who gives true life

 

Let’s serve The Lamb who chose to die

Spread forth the love grace gives

Let’s seek in Christ to multiply

And show the world He lives…

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.
