These are some of the attempts at verse that I have made over the years. I trust that they are to the glory of the Lord Jesus - and that putting them here is to His glory too.
I have now posted most that I have written at least once but continue in case a new audience finds new blessing. Occasionally I throw in some other verse.
Comment are welcome.

What is the path for us to go?
Path near Fala, Midlothian
I have been given a loan of the notebook of an old saint, now with Christ. Among his notes is:
O Lord, teach me thy paths: Psalm 25: 4
Thy paths drop fatness: Psalm 65: 11
Hold up my goings in thy paths: Psalm 17: 5
To this I have responded by some simple verse:
Make me to know Thy ways,
O Lord; teach me Thy paths;
For if I roam from Thee my days
Will be sad aftermaths.
Thy goodness crowns the year:
Thy paths drop fatness, Lord;
And walking with Thee, in Thy fear,
i strike a happy chord.
From paths of evil men
- Because I hear Thy lips –
I keep, and Thou dost hold, and then
My footstep never slips.
