Trusting Jesus.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

† † † Trusting Jesus.....

Before this body turns to dust

Before this world I leave

Upon The Lord Iíve placed my trust

Upon The Rock Iíll cleave

Iíve placed my trust in Jesus Christ

Godís Son of flesh and bone

I trust The Lamb God sacrificed

I trust His Word alone

I trust He chose for man to die

Rising again to reign

That as Godís Seed Heíd multiply

Through children born-again

I trust His blood can cleanse the soul

I trust His blood can save

His very name can make us whole

And save us from the grave

I trust Christís love His tender care

I trust He bore my shame

I trust the grace He came to share

Remains today the same

I trust the pardon Jesus bought

Can save the worst from hell

I trust the facts, lifeís true report

My Saviour had to tell

Although the devilís out to harm

Though Satanís heís out to kill

I trust my Lordís almighty arm

His perfect righteous will

Iíll trust my life to Christ The Lord

Lifeís Gate and Heavenís Door

As trusted Shield, Godís mighty Sword

Now and forever moreÖ..

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.
