The Bible

Ringing through this collections of poems is a great love for the Holy Bible, and a simple theme, that if the Bible is to have any meaning it has to be relevant to our present lives. There are many poems that take the reader to the heart of a Bible story, challenging one to consider the reality of what actually happened, – did Moses see a burning bush that was not consumed, were five thousand really fed from just five loaves and two fishes, was a violent tempest stilled? Were sin, disease and death really overcome? And interwoven with these Biblical accounts in verse or prose are other poems that show a searching out of thought and realisation that can be summarised in the simple knowledge that God is Love.

The earnest expectation is that for any reader any one of these poems may find for them an angel thought that brings comfort and healing, and whispers of God’s love. The lightest touch is all it takes for the gentle kiss of inspiration to overcome the direst circumstance and leave healing, peace and reconciliation.

“Thy Will Be Done”

“Thy will be done”  Matt. 6:10 2nd Thy (to done)

Help me Lord to hear Thy will,
To be at peace, to be quite still,
To listen quietly for Thy voice,
To know there is no need for choice:
For everything is in Thy hand
And I am happy there to stand.

Teach me Lord to do Thy will,
In steadfast ways to work until
The job is done: make me take heed –
To be obedient’s all I need.
For everything is in Thy hand
And I am happy there to stand.

Thy will be done. I see at last
There is no future, there’s no past:
The present fills infinity,
At one with God, I am now free!
For everything is in Thy hand!
My happiness is here. I stand!
