Biography of Roy Allen
The entries I have made are more in the form of meditations than pure poetry. Other poems have been entered under the name of Royston Allen
The Bible calls Jesus by many names
each one giving a glimpse of His glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting an aspect
of His Divine Nature.
The poems on this part of the site will be on the 'Names and titles of Jesus'. All other poems will be gradually transfered and listed under my other Poetic name of 'Royston'
