If Christ Is in Our Hearts.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

If Christ Is In Our Hearts.....

If Christ is really in our hearts

If truth is yours and mine

We need to visit other parts

Revealing love divine

We need to go from town to town

Even across the sea

Help lost souls find lifeís victory crown

And set more prisoners free

Encourage children wandering weak

Retrieve whoíve gone astray

Turn to our foes the other cheek

For those deceived to pray

The world; in us should see Godís Light

Should see The Truth is ours

That we the bride of Christ can fight

Through Heavenís graceful powers

We need to raise the walking dead

Restore blind eyes their sight

Help wayward souls flee Satanís bed

And help the bride live right

One must be right, for life to win

More souls to flee the grave

If Jesus freed us of our sin

And truly came to save

If Christ is truly on our mind

The Holy Ghostís inside

We need to show the world yet blind

That we are Jesusí bride

Weíre called to rise on eagleís wing

Until in love we grow

Until as one we come to sing

The lost may never know.....

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.
