The Truth Believed.....

† † † The Truth Believed.....

Can Heaven use a child like me?

Have I the strength to tell?

Can yet the world, be made to see?

Her offspring bound for hell

My neighbours say it canít be done

Most friends and colleagues too

But now I know Godís Lamb & Son

His path I must pursue

It matters not what others say

What foolish tongues reveal

In Jesus Christ Iíve found The Way

To live the life thatís real

Iíve witnessed here Iíve challenged there

Watching the proud walk tall

I gave what Jesus had to share

But still I see them fall

Iíve seen them come Iíve watched them go

Witnessed them live and die

I see them fail by what they sow

And watch them wonder why

But still Iíve hope my faith is strong

In Christ Iím more than sure

If God has called to sing my song

I know that Iíll endure

A deeper depth a higher height

I know in Christ Iíll cope

At last the world may see The Light

And learn The Truth to hope

Thank God Iím in The Saviourís hand

Iím wise to Satanís lies

Soon Iíll hear His royal command

With His virgin bride to rise.....†

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.
