Only You Only you can lift Out of the deepest, slimiest Pit of despair The broken human soul Crushed, shattered, Reeling, staggering From the effects The price, the toll That wretched darkness extracts Oh, he is good, that Enemy of mine Hounding me thru All of my time But you sit enthroned Ensconced in your power And your name Destroying his sordid game That prince of the air That satan Breathing his hot breath In my face From birth even unto today But you remove Of his evil every trace Winning me to yourself My pain you do embrace My spirit you lift up Until I can say With joy you have filled my cup! So come, Lord Jesus, Come! Do it again As you did back then!!
Wait Patiently It will come That Holy Son Will return So today of all days do not spurn His loving kindness Even as we wait He holds open Golden gates To life, joy peace They will of course For later keep But should we not seek Them even now? Somehow We are meant & are being sent From heaven’s royal thrones To gather all those dry bones Back to life Awake, arise church, awake! For all our sakes Go forward Lead this land Back toward Those nail-scarred hands His paradise awaits For this is the truest of all fates!!

Not Okay War is not okay Rape is not okay Child abuse is not okay Poverty is not okay Neither is the extreme greed That seems to fuel & feed The wealthier countries The world is not now okay, God never meant for it To ever be this way!! As we close our eyes Stare vacantly toward the sky & ignore the surrounding Abnormal pain Have we become so Senseless, brain dead We accept this world as normal? Or shouldn’t we instead Be a part of its re-creation? We were never meant ourselves to tear & rend Into many small pieces We were meant to Live as God’s friend In His perfected paradise In love with HIM & each other Instead we choose Against HIM to rebel Oh, how I wish this Evil inside ourselves We could banish, quell! We have lived like this For so long I am not sure we can Any longer even see what is wrong But there is hope For on a happier day For those who have Chosen to follow CHRIST'S way God’s power & might Will triumph, have sway Once again the world Will be perfected All pain will disappear!!
Encounter (on a busy sidewalk) a busy city sidewalk crowded, elbow to elbow on every face is shown pressure mounting higher, higher streets full of cars jostling for position under each red light this caravan of busy reaching out of sight noisy cacophony of impatient horns But yet, into This man-made Mess of madness A sense of peace, True Destiny, Walks with us Side by side On each busy street & sidewalk Unseen, but not Unfelt He walks In His royal robe Searching, looking Passing by Among us Longing to touch Each heart Desiring to give Reveal, impart Himself A better life Temporarily out of Sight But sensed In that small breeze That touches Your skin Ruffles the edges Of your heart Look up New life begins At the edge of The old As your King Walks past In the crowd Let him win Without any doubt Yourself Without a sound Or shout He will give to you More than a busy Sidewalk’s chaos Let him come, refresh As only Christ can do & give to you A better life anew!
Set Apart We were meant To be set apart I believe this Deeply in my heart Different we Should strive to be So all the world May see Our Leader His purity Love Light Goodness To this we Should run As we struggle To shun The world Sure, we have To live in it Love it for sure But We are not to Be of it We’re meant To live In a way much More pure Not as greedy, Sexually immoral, Bloodthirsty, Selfish These things We should Not be His holy love More giving The world In Us Should see A Holy Bride He longs for us to be As we wait on Bended knees Longing to please Only Him Let us win This race As we let go Of every trace Of ourselves Let us dare To be different Stand out Give a holy shout Christ’s Name It is the same Yesterday, Today Tomorrow For His return will Overcome All death, pain, & every sorrow
Someday It still amazes me, Lord That even yet today You want to share Your Goodness with me My imperfections are almost As numerous & vast As the span of one of Your seas I stumble, I fall I walk then I crawl Down here I never Quite pull it all Together Yet Someday I know Yourself you will show To each, to every & all I will live to display, on that Heaven’s Perfected Day Only Your Shining Glory My imperfections will be Forever washed, wiped Completely Away!
