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

Twisted

June 30, 2013

I am so thankful for what we have
Have we forgotten our roots?
Roots of our families, our foundation?
Foundation of our country so fair

Fair, life isn’t, but neither are we
We twist good things, making them convoluted and complicated
Complicated ways, not of Jesus’ world
World was created good, but became twisted

Twisted are the words of the evil one, our enemy
Enemy of everyone and this planet of ours
Ours is a job that came when the earth was formed
Formed by just a few words

Words were used in the making us too
To us, He is our Creator
Creator that made our world, our country
Country that’s supposed to be for you and me

Shining Jewel (Revised)

November 26, 2012

A tiny jewel held in hand
In the hand of God
God holds it out to show me
Me and all mankind.

Mankind taunts me and puts me down.
Down in the dumps so deep
Deep darkness tries to cover it through.
Through that black God is shining.

Shining through another person
Person who holds that jewel of hope
Hope brought through another one, physical.
Physical, tangible person giving God’s jewel to me.
