� � � � � � I Want

..

I want The Holy Ghost inside

I want life's Flame to burn

I want to join the faithful bride

And from The Master learn

I want my eyes The Truth to see

A want as light to shine

Be made in Christ completely free

And see that life is mine

I want true faith to make me strong

Humility to reign

To Jesus Christ for life belong

And truly born again

I want God's grace to overflow

His love the world to share

Plant righteous seed where ere I go

And show how much we care

I want to please The Lord on high

To wholly serve Him well

I want to live never to die

And save others from hell

I want to sow Salvations seed

I want selfless to give

I want to meet my neighbours need

To see them thrive and live

I want to see the devil fall

My soul God's praise sing loud

I want to hear The Trumpet call

To rise within The Cloud

I want God's Son to take my hand

To enter Heaven's Door

With Jesus dwell The Promised Land

And want to want no more.....

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.
