King Of Kings - Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery

God's most holy son
Teach me of your love
So through its wonder
I might immortal come
And have no fear of death.

O Lord Jesus, sacred king
Embrace me within your light
Forgive my sins dark as night
Baptise my soul
So a star within the darkness glows.

Great King of Kings
Give me thoughts of Paradise
Keep me safe and true
Forgive all my wasted days
Lost without thought of you.

    Awwwww! ! ! ! this is too much for the heart...it is a reality for many of us who forget God when we live in the world and not in Jesus.


    you are great

    Such a sweet understanding to talk to God as you do you must be close to him.
    'Forgive all my wasted days', when we just didn't do what he called us to. How
    refreshing to share with others. Phebe

    Jesus's promise as a filter against Old Testament rigidity inspires many, in all areas. That He can inspire such creativity in you is a testament to His gift.
    If every Christian saw the world with the wonder your poetry conveys, we'd have 'em all converted in a week.

    I thought I was innoculated against religeon at birth.......
    It must have been at 13 with my BCG!
    You have just caused me to recall a prayer I was taught as a child, I did not understand it at the time.....
    Gentle Jesus meek and mild
    Look on me a little child
    Pity my Simplicity
    And suffer me to come to thee
    Amen.
    Do people still say prayers?
