Poetry for Christ

I have a book in print titled Poems & Songs for Christ. If you buy it, any royalties I receive from it will go directly to the foundation. Look for it online under the title, on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

Wake Up!

The Lord came by to waken me,

When I was sound asleep.

He shook me gently once or twice,

But I was in too deep.

He rocked me sharply back and forth

To see if I’d respond,

But I just kept on snoring,

So he knocked me to the ground,

And shouted, “Wake up!

It’s time to go to war!

My brother, wake up!

What are you sleeping for?”

He shouted, “Wake up!

It’s time to feed my sheep!

The time is growing shorter

And this is no time to sleep!”

~~~

I sat there in astonishment,

My mouth hanging open wide,

As He looked deep into my eyes

And spoke to me inside,

With one hand on my shoulder

And the other on my head,

He brought His mouth close to my ear

And this is what He said:

He whispered, “Wake up,

It’s time to go to war.

My brother, wake up.

What are you sleeping for?”

He whispered, “Wake up,

It’s time to feed my sheep.

The time is growing shorter

And this is no time to sleep.”

~~~

And then the Lord embraced me

And continued on His way,

But the lesson that He gave me

Stays with me to this day.

And His Spirit lives within me,

Whose promises are true.

The Lord our God is faithful,

And so I’m telling you,

My brothers, wake up!

It’s time to go to war!

My brothers, wake up!

What are you sleeping for?

My brothers, wake up,

It’s time to feed His sheep!

The time is growing shorter

And this is no time to sleep!
