Startle Me Startle me, Wake me, On a shelf I’ve been Too long Now seems The perfect time For a newer song So . . . Wake me Shake me Do it again King Jesus As you did it then On those dusty streets Of old Jerusalem Flow thru us Live through us Your power shining, Exploding As to your world Your beauty You’re showing So, come Lord Jesus Come Legions of angels Behind you To tromp, Stomp On this Shallow dirt, This clay Quake the earth As you did before Awaken your church Let it arise At your bidding As this dark war Assuredly you will Be winning Let us not be afraid To get our hands dirty Comfort, convenience Never wins the day So do it, Again King Jesus Do it Again Awaken once more our spirits to call us your Steadfast Soldiers & Friends!

Psalm 150 Praise the Lord Praise God in His sanctuary praise Him in His mighty heavens Praise Him for His acts of power praise Him for His surpassing greatness praise Him with the sounding of the trumpet praise Him with the harp and lyre praise Him with timbrel and dancing praise Him with the strings and pipe praise Him with the clash of cymbals praise Him with resounding cymbals Let everything that has breath praise the Lord Praise the Lord
I just thought this was good way to start off the day after Christmas Day. Hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas, that everyone stayed safe. May God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit bless and guide your day today.
Swallowed by the Sun
Swallowed by the Sun The Sun That Fiery burning orb Of our earth he is the lord For surely, all life here below without its heated glow Would die Be dark Encrusted by the cold Death for every plant, animal, Would soon ensue Even for me & you For sure It is a paradox Yet, Swallowed by the sun No one could survive Burnt to a crisp I most assuredly would die However. . . , There is another sun More glorious than you To be swallowed By this SON Only brings us to Love, joy PEACE Beyond my poor Ability To see Or Understand So swallow me Lord Jesus Engulf me in your glory It is my same old story. For You, My pain-filled heart bleeds Only Your precious warmth Brings the life I truly need Inside your burning light I am allowed to see Eternity So I fall to my knees Beg, implore Swallow me Lord Let me live, breathe, exist Inside Your Glistening, Golden Glory!!

The Flying V!
The Flying V It flies, zooms Moving so fast At first I cannot see What this flying Abstraction, monstrosity Must be It is a flying V! It moves, zips With so much speed I cannot see Its shape So I reach an arm Upward To reach for its tip At firsts it eludes But I continue to Pursue Until I reach Triumphant Into the air Then turn to stare At what lies Trembling Within my hands It is the letter V Well, this was not Within my day’s plan! Never would I have guessed If I had been put to the test That such a symbol Would belong To such as I What could this mean Then I too began to tremble Until a hand Reached from behind It is for you a sign A man smiled As he spoke Do you not see What this flying V Stands for? I shook my head No. As He spoke His Words were slow Listen carefully He said And I will show Its meaning He removed His robe His body was scarred His perfect flesh Had been deeply marred Yes, my flesh was Defaced I died in disgrace For you Yet within my nail-scarred Hands I hold the Promised Land Waiting for you It takes a deep belief Faith in me This is for your Most sincere relief From your own Sin No more will it win Control I destroyed that Darkness The hold It had on you This V is a sign Of my complete Victory Over all that enslaved Each child of mine I saved the day No more will hell Or death have its way With you As I watched His arms He raised In that perfect stance Of old It took only one glance For me to know Over His head His arms they formed that Perfect V On display For everyone forever & always to see!! And I could see Of that which He spoke He had removed Destroyed That darkest of yokes My sin
Refreshing Imagine If you will For a minute or two Will not cause you Extravagant pain May be possibly Worth what You might gain Sit back, relax In your most Comfortable chair Shake your head Let the wings of Your imagination’s Mind Soar Above your daily cares To the words in An ancient book Stop Take a lingering look Words so divine Speak of our future In a different time To a new Heaven And a new Earth A time of complete Rebirth Not only for our New bodies and souls But of a new city & planet we are told A new city Described in terms Of gold and jewels So precious, rare For those who will Dare To follow Stay faithful Even to a cross Be willing to Suffer loss To be a part Of the New Eden If that book, Bible, Says it is so It is so In Christ’s words & blood written And in that Revelation Old World Old Order Gone No more pain No more death No suffering So forth we Should Go Boldly Faithfully To be enwrapped Within HIS arms In purest love & surpassing Joy!
