Past Life

This was written April 15, 1987. I don’t remember much surrounding this poem except that I was a new Christian and was amazed that Jesus forgave me and loved me just the way I was.  That amazed me to no end! That I was loved! In some of my older work you will see some ‘thees thous thusses and yees’ and I used knocketh! That’s because I read out of the King James version – – Ok.  Here we go. Enjoy.

Don’t put Jesus off till tomorrow

For He may be coming today

He knows all about your Past Life

And loves you the same anyway

With Jesus you haven’t the worries

Which saddens and hardens your heart

With Jesus your Past Life’s forgotten

Giving your life a new start

Look ye not behind thee

And lift your eyes above

Repent and He’ll forgive you

And fill your heart with love

He knocketh at your door right now

And wishes to come in

Accept Him now, just as you are

And He’ll cleanse you from your sins

Confessing Jesus Lord of Lords

Believe from death He rose

Plead the blood of Jesus

And accept the Holy Ghost

Know that forward is the way

A babe in Christ you’ll be

Because new born babies have no past

So from your past you’re free
