The Cell Alone And in my empty cell I try to find the words To tell Of Your Great Beauty You come to me Across a dark, dampened floor Only the light on Your Face Helping my soul to soar Over & above Whatever life’s tomorrow May hold for me in store So, Whatever prisons you Must face Only on our Christ’s Loving face Will you be allowed to trace The strength, courage You will need For your songs to sing Of this Prince of Peace This Heavenly King as upward toward His Heavenly gates He alone carries each soul On the Purest of Glory’s wings!
Divorce, Divorce Divorce, Divorce Such a slippery slimy course Icky, sticky Shouldn’t we feel some remorse? Signs of the times Mobs in the culture all cry But who put them in charge Seems almost like A ridiculous farce Shall we begin to spar? Who gets the last word Surely there’s someplace to look You say there is an older book Which answers many questions That within its black and white lines God’s Holy Spirit beckons Listen to its words So once again we may return Faithfulness, sanctity Peace, security True love back to our homes And no longer out in the darkness Will our children be forced to roam!
Every Day! Every day, We need your help Still so many tears on earth Do fall Please stop to hear, to listen To our calls Return to me Before I may move Not impossible is this To understand for you From above God’s voice beckons Turn & live in a new direction So from my throne may flow My Joy-Filled weapons That you may live in The newest of glorious heavens Forever enthroned upon My loving affections! Zechariah 1:3 Therefore tell the people: This is what the Lord Almighty says: Return to me, declares the Lord Almighty and I will return to you says the Lord Almighty.(NIV) Jeremiah 32:27 Behold I am the Lord the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for me? (KJV)
Poem to an Abstract Star whirl Colors twirl In bright ribbons Around your head So I believe To yourself You said: “I should do something With this Leaning forward With a gentle kiss The Son said: “I agree although We have not a Compelling need Except to perhaps See If this, our love, More are willing to receive So you spoke And You built Soon those colors They filled A universe Of twirling shapes Forms Some soft some hard, terse So You Built an earth Of greens & blues Such vibrant hues Plants, animals & at last your man Such glorious life Only Your peace No strife Until We spoiled it But Remember Your Son You Did send us Someday will It be returned And once again We will be Allowed to learn Of Your Glorious Perfection!!
New Day! Rushing, crashing Waves of life Come washing over me From a tumultuous, Increasingly treacherous sea! Brokenness comes into The line of the shore With a raging, angry Dangerous roar What is it that they want My frail, tiny boat At last To completely swamp? For this is what it seems As to my craft I cling And scream Those waves keep Coming, Coming In large volumes, Positively reams Sent by that satan That oh so ancient enemy But of this life he Will not have the last word Because as quickly as he comes Away will he be turned By a larger, grander, More Powerful Ship Will he be Destroyed, Forever spurned With the unfolding of just one Bright, white sail satan is completely undone, Rising in a brighter boat Is God’s Only Son Golden on the horizon As a rapidly rising sun In Pure Joy, That New Day of our Lord & King has finally and at last come!!!
Lost World who would want to live in a world without God’s purpose Where boundaries have no name each human heart choses the beginning of its own tumultuous game no structure no solidity only constant fluidity rampant running from one idea to another as they lay sunning on rocks just waiting another innocent to be baiting not realizing each stone carries the lust of each heart’s own depravity guidelines are good standing out from the crowds as they should but just make sure they come from God’s reliable source with them you may run a more worthy course of purpose not caught in a nervous circus so stay away from the darkened service of a ‘Lost World’
