In My Ears The Lions Roar In my ears The lions roar Around us Every moment, Every hour Trying over us To exert Their destroying power One lion roars Then another Loud, strong Around us pacing Hot breath in our face Watching, waiting Until a gentle whisper Taps upon your shoulder Soft at first Then growing bolder Its blazing light Reveals Christ's Full glory, Power, Controlling might As soon as they sense This Almighty Prince That very second One last defiant roar emitting They cringe They cower In their lower station more befitting So do not give in To floods of tears Those overwhelming fears Over everything Christ wins His armies He will send To bring to you A restful peace As in His loving embrace He will settle His sheep, That Lions' Master, In a restful, safer pasture!
For All Believers If you say you believe In that sacrificed Savior Guardian over our behavior Then never speak His Name In public Will you not be subject To a more severe form of God's Judgement? I believe we will A Great Commission Instructed each believer To instill In all of a lost world God's instructions Guides to inclusion Or exclusion From His Eternal Paradise We will be like that watchman On the wall Hearing in our hearts God's call Yet not warning others of the dangers Not doing the watchman's job Failing will bring to us both a great cost To all will be the extreme loss Of an eternal foreverness In God's Loving Presence As the prophet Ezekiel wrote 'Their blood will be on our heads'
Ezekiel 33: 6, 8 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes someone’s life, that person’s life will be taken because of their sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for their blood. …….8 you do not speak out to dissuade them from their ways, that wicked person will die for their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood.
For Too Long For too long God’s family His church Has sat silent On too many subjects Is this not a form of neglect? All those eyes every day You will look into Faces you will peruse Each and every one Is the face of a someone Ending up In one of only two places Do we not care As we return their stares If it’s an eternal Paradise Or a hell brought about Within some demon’s sick device We are meant to be His hands, his feet So get out there Make known his fame Carry his name And help save Christ’s world This glowing, rotating Large green pearl So all may see his light And a Holy Spirit’s flame re-ignite!
To Trim God does not waste words Nor does He mince them Away with the useless fat Of words will He always trim Saying what He means For He is unable to lie Upon His words you may depend Or someday may be required to die When He says don’t Do something He means it So forever leave it That thing & don’t do it! His words are there To bless you Although at times They will most certainly Test you But still in that deepest part Your innermost heart Allow them to caress you!
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!
