Jesus is Lord

From time to time, I have shared some of my own poetic endeavours. The piece that follows was written about 1977, while I was minister at Bellshill: St.Andrew's Parish Church. We had been experiencing some vandalism at the Church Hall, and I had decided to sit in my car in the adjacent car-park to keep an eye on things. Ex-Beatle, Paul McCartney, had recently brought out his hit number "Mull of Kintyre" and, as I sat there humming the melody, words began to form in my mind. The Youth Fellowship sung them some months later, at a Worship Service but, as far as I can recall, they have not been used on any other occasion!

Jesus is Lord!
O let the sound echo all over the world,
'til all of the people know
Jesus is Lord.

1. Sing out His praises, and shout out His Name;
tell of the love of the Saviour Who came.
Came to redeem us, and save us from sin
if we'll open our hearts, and let Jesus come in.


2. Lord of creation, and Giver of light;
He is the One Who brings hope to our night.
Died there, at Calvary, on man's cruel tree
so that sin might be conquered, and sinners set free.


3. Just as He promised, He rose from the grave;
First-fruit of all those whom He'd come to save.
Then He ascended to heaven above
that His Spirit might fill us with power and with love.


4. Soon He's returning, our Lord and our King;
all of the ransomed to Glory He'll bring;
to live there, forever, the Scriptures record -
that's your future if, in your life, Jesus is Lord.

Thank you for your encouraging words. If you look back, you will fiond some other 'poetic offerings' - at least two of which are songs. It would be nice to have an identity for you. Please feel free to provide it in another comment - that I will not publish! Blessings.

The missing apostrophe (Paul's) should have been the clue!! xoxoxox
