The true follower of Christ will not ask, "If I embrace this truth, what will it cost me?" Rather he will say, "This is truth. God help me to walk in it, let come what may!"

POETS CORNER

Post by Peter on Wed Aug 25, 2010 7:27 am

Thought we might be able to give room for some poems... if any felt so led to write them. These will be orignal poems... not copied from other sites. We can put a copywrite on 'em so as to protect their originality. You never know what we might get. Thanks for posting folks!

OH FOOLISH MAN

Post by Fred on Wed Aug 25, 2010 7:59 am

OH FOOLISH MAN

OH FOOLISH MAN
YOU THINK YOU ARE SO COOL
YOU LIVE IN PRIDE AND HATE AND LUST
AND OVER THE WEAK YOU LOVE TO RULE

YOU CHEAT THE FATHERLESS
YOU STEAL FROM THOSE SO POOR
BUT WITH EVERY DAY THAT PASSES
YOUR LIFE IS WAXING SORE

WHAT GOOD IS ALL YOUR GAIN
IF AT THE ROOT YOU HAVE NOT LOVE
IF ALL YOUR RICHES ARE OF THIS WORLD
AND NONE FROM UP ABOVE

YOU CAN QUAFF EVERY CUP OF PLEASURE
RAISE EVERY CUP OF FAME
BUT IT IS ALL VEXATION AND VANITY
IF YOU DO NOT KNOW HIS NAME

FOR HE CAME AND DIED FOR YOU AND ME
AND LIVED IN LOVE TO SET US FREE
BEING KING OF ALL THAT IS TO SEE
HE LIVES IN HUMBLE SIMPLICITY

SO FOOLISH MAN
TAKE HEART TODAY
TO SEE THE FUTURE
THIS I PRAY

AND REMEMBER
THAT THOU ART DUST
AND ALL YOUR’ PRIDE
WILL ONE DAY RUST

My Guide My Friend

Post by Bruce on Thu Aug 26, 2010 5:59 am

My Guide My Friend

When there was much that I could not see
There was one who saw Eternity

And Though there was so much I did not know
Day by Day He Helped me Grow

The path was long the going slow
And the journey took me too and fro

Sometimes the climb seemed way too hard
But he helped me make it Yard by Yard

What guides my hand who cares for me
Oh weak man that I be

Who Sees my heart Who knows my soul
In this tough world of sin and woe


At last I reached my Journey’s End
And Met My Guide My Dearest Friend

YOU CAME TO ME

When I was in such desperate need, you came to me
And when I could no longer go on, you came to me
Then you gave me hope; you gave me your mercy,
Your love lifts me higher than any mountain,
With your grace, I now belong in your Kingdom

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
You gave your life for me before I came to be
Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, Lord.
You’re my Savior, redeemer, healer, and friend

When you seemed so far in the distance, you came to me
And when the enemy was at my door, you came to me
Then you gave me joy; you gave me your Spirit
Your love lifts me higher than any mountain,
With your grace, I now belong in your Kingdom

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
You gave your life for me before I came to be
Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, Lord.
You’re my Savior, redeemer, healer, and friend

Fred, Bruce & Connie... those are great poems. Thank You! From the Heart and so moving! Enjoyed the way you stuck pictures with them to illustrate your message!

Wish I could do that, but I'm not a poet and I know it!

Thanks Again,
Chris

On Facebook I've been in contact with old classmates and recently one of our friends passed away! I wrote the following poem in response to someones comment that our time was short!

OLD FRIENDS FROM THE PAST WE HERE DO SEE
WE’VE LIVED OUR LIVES TO BE ALL THAT WE COULD BE

BUT SOON THE BELLS WILL TOLL FOR US
AND WE WILL FINISH LIFE’S RACE… YES THIS WE MUST

AND MEET OUR SAVIOUR FACE TO FACE
MINUS ALL OUR FRONTS… THE TRUTH TO FACE

LORD HELP US TO DO OUR BEST FOR HIM
SO THAT WHEN WE MEET THAT REAPER GRIM

WE WON’T HAVE TO HANG OUR HEADS IN SHAME
ON THE FATEFUL DAY WHEN GOD CALLS OUR NAME

BUT INSTEAD WE CAN LIFT OUR HEADS WITH PRIDE
KNOWING THAT IN HIM WE DID ABIDE

AND HE GREETS US WITH A CHEERFUL WORD OR TWO
OF “WELL DONE THOU FAITHFUL SERVANT…” HEY BUBA… “THAT’S YOU”!

Peter, I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. Your poem is a great tribute to him. Buba has graduated and is now walking the golden streets of heaven alongside Jesus. How wonderful and amazing is that!

God bless you.
