A New Song

November 20, 2013

Time flows in only one direction
With no introduction
Yet we all want to know what will happen
We want to know what’s around the bend

Bending to the will of the world, we collapse
But as we bend, time doesn’t nap
It flows on like a river
It can be good or bad and set you to quiver

Quiver and shake, you are pushed along
You’re dragged on the bottom; you’re under so long
A wave picks you up and cradles you; you’re carried away
The stream takes you to another day

Day breaks, and you awake
You’re alive – is it fake?
You stretch and find out you’re covered
He comes to you like a lover

Lover of your soul, He is attentive to all needs
All you need to do is believe and go where He leads
He helps you up and sets you on your feet
He gives you the strength to take your lit candle to all you meet

Meet all you can; eternity begins
You work with Him to make it happen
Time no longer pulls you along
It gives you a new song

Bones Below

April 10, 2012

I hear people talk about the titanic
To think about the death makes me sick
I can’t help thinking of those that traveled
Their lives suddenly unraveled

She lies at the bottom of the ocean deep
Those who were alive now sleep
They have gone to eternity
A place truly grand, not empty

A once grand ship, the Titanic was
“Unsinkable” was the buzz
Even when they were sinking low
To the depths below

Mistakes were made, that was true
But what can we do?
Now it’s time to leave them alone
Now in God’s hands, they can rest their bones

To Eternity

June 17, 2010

Minute by minute, day by day
Day to day, time drifts by
By the Creator’s help, we step
Step by step we travel life’s trail

Day to day, time drifts on
On to eternity
By the Creator’s help, we step
Step by step, we follow Him

Step by step we travel life’s trail
Trail narrow, leading heavenward
On to Eternity
Eternity begins anew

Step by step, we follow Him
Him who is our Shepherd King
Trail narrow, leading heavenward
Heavenward, homeward

Him, who is our Shepherd King
By the Creator’s help, we step
Heavenward, homeward
Minute by minute, day by day.
