The City A Wondrous City This Holy Jerusalem Containing at one time A temple built for only HIM His presence to visit Between golden cherubim’s wings He listened While choirs on its steps To Him did sing His Name His Power His Fame To it one day This Only God Will return After all evil Is vanquished Destroyed In one heartbeat, Burned So we raise holy hands As we fall to our knees In obedience’s path Seeking only to please (to be transformed your earth & us) No longer to rebel in ignorance Against your beauty To rise to Your higher calling, That greater, purer duty And follow Your Forever Call Watching, waiting As once again your raise Her holy walls Regrow, renew Re-begin This Holy Jerusalem!
A Love Song: (A Part Of) It is like I was created to be Always a part of Your group Your Holy Trinity A smaller part As I bend down Worship on my knees It is Your gift to be like you Should this not My worldly values askew? A world so out of balance Literally out of its mind Rolling, tumbling on A very, very thin line Not even those lost rebellious angels Did you dare to die for Only over us Your Spirit’s healing You wished to pour To enable re-birth Through all the light & darkness of this universe’s Massive girth In truth, nothing and no one else Did you create to Reflect the goodness of Yourself but us Thank you, Dear Lord In You only may I completely live & trust!
I love the walk along our city’s greenway. It’s right on the river, and you get to hear the water and all the animals, bugs and sights that go along with all of the place. Here’s only a short video of some of the sight and sounds I managed to capture along with a short poem. Hope you enjoy!
Summer Sounds Oh the joy of those Summer sounds Of water, birds, bugs All types of critters on the ground Of water roaring in its strength Or just a lazier hot day’s trickle Of this I will not dare to be fickle I love all of this summer’s show Try to take a break From your daily rush Do not let this world On your soul’s wellbeing Force a wearing attrition Take the time to just listen To your sweet Summer’s Sounds!
Come Come, Lord Jesus, Come Lord, King My Master To us, please, please return Rend the sky Waiting, I watch Look up & sigh But first, Come perhaps More softly In Your great love Rend, tear our hearts Of this world Surely, You’ve had More than enough Help us, lead us Show us only for life Your way On the face of this planet Tired am I of an ever present Internet Its siren song, misleading fantasies Enchantment Save us as only You can Before you choose to return To create Your promised land New Earth, New Heaven Make us Your hands, feet Put in our hearts Your Love So evil’s destructive voices May You at last Totally, completely defeat!
Into a Gutter Tossed Feeling so lost Into a gutter tossed In the depths of it, I sigh Are You, Lord, passing me by? Watching I look Give a soft moan In only one heart’s beat You stop You are there With one smile You show You care Reaching out one hand Raise me to my feet Save me Your beauty’s grace on display For all of this lost world to see!!
