The Desires of a Living Soul – Life and Poetry of Clive J Jefferys
Clive Jefferys was a Wiltshire farmer who attended Little Zoar chapel, Studley, all his life, until he passed away in 1987. He learnt his lessons from nature and Scripture. He had a particular gift for recording his life experiences and spiritual desires in poetry. The subjects covered (including life’s changing scenes, seeking help from Jesus and ‘only speaking of little things’) will find an echo in the hearts of God’s people, while the poetry adds a warmth and succinctness that prose doesn’t convey. The book also contains a memoir and extracts from his diary.
Lord may Thy people as they meet,
Receive rich food from Thee;
But precious Jesus, this I seek,
Let fall some crumbs for me.
There’s no concern too heavy,
There’s no concern too great,
Which, if you bring to Jesus
He’ll bear the heaviest weight.
