I've Read Your Book....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

† † † I've Read Your Book....

Iíve read Your book I know the end

Drinking The Truth as wine

I see Your Son as Lord and friend

Please let Your Ghost be mine

Allow Your radiance shine on me

Let Christ become my well

Grant in spirit these eyes to see

That I the world may tell

I seek lifeís guidance from above

Through Jesus fill my cup

That I from grace from selfless love

From righteousness may sup

The faith I have is yours alone

In truth Iím more than blessed

Soften of me each part of stone

That I may pass lifeís test

Without Your love without your grace

Iíll still be lost and blind

Iíd have no hope to see Your face

Iíd fail lifeís road to find

My future was of grave concern

Before my lamp You lit

Eternity would see me burn

Within hellís flaming pit

But now The Light of Truth has dawned

No longer in the shade

I see the signs Iím truly warned

And now Iím not afraid

No ear has heard no eye has seen

What lies beyond Your gates

But trusting He whoís always been

Eternity awaits.....

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.
