Works by a Poet and Psalmist
'THE HOUR IS LATE'
It is so very obvious we are living in the last of the last
days. Just pick up a newspaper or cut on the television and
even a total heathen would have to see it plainly,
something's got to give! It is very important as Jesus
taught us repeatedly to watch and pray in the hours in which
we live. To be seeking Him constantly and staying closely in
touch with Holy Spirits leading.
If we don't want to be swallowed up in the madness we see in
the world and have our hearts grow cold and dark from the
bleakness of what we observe we must continue to keep our
eyes on the Lord. The one who said, 'In the world you will
have tribulation, but be of good cheer for I have overcome
the world'. We must hold on to that very lively hope! He
already has and we are more than victors because of Him!
Jesus is coming! Stay ready...
I WRITE THESE WORDS
IN A LIGHT THAT GROWS DIM
AT THE END OF ALL DAYS
IN THIS AGE OF WICKED MEN
MY SOLE FOCUS IS
AND WILL REMAIN, ON HIM
THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
THE BRIGHT IN MY SOUL
A LIGHT THAT SHINES IN DARKNESS
AS THE SUN GOES COLD
AND SO DO THE HEARTS
OF SO MANY AROUND
AS THE EARTH GROWS DARKER STILL
SO LITTLE LOVE TO BE FOUND
TIME IS IN IT'S TWILIGHT
THE AGE OF MAN, SOON TO PASS
COMING SOON, THE ENDLESS KINGDOM
YES THE BRIDEGROOM...
COME AT LAST!
OF THIS PRESENT LIFE
COME MORNING STAR
SHINING EVER, SO BRIGHT
FILL THE SKIES, EVERY EYE
END THIS NIGHT!
THE SPIRIT AND THE BRIDE SAY...
COME QUICKLY LORD!
