True Beauty? All we have of any beauty so true, Dear God, Is always & only the great I AM Of You All of us, so corrupted Our own lives we keep interrupting With sin so calloused Our wandering selfishness Our greatest test As much as we can We need to let go Swim back into the natural flow Of Yourself, Your Love Overwhelming comes Your Glow Like the greatest of floods Showing in the things you’ve made In this even nature has much to say Froom sparkling stars in the sky To the translucent ethereal Wings of a fluttering butterfly The great beauty of your heart Before you even attempted a world to start Was what goaded you forward Until at last we stood before you Your shining, newly-born human child A whole universe awash with your love Flying, soaring thru heavenly gates above Carried down on gentlest wings of doves To the crusty hardened dust of this earth Until upon it at last Fell the blood of Your Only Son Forever bringing to us a cherished new birth!
Roaring of The Seas This was never meant to be This raging, crashing roaring of the sea Foaming waves of so much disharmony Meant were we herein to forever see Only the calming ripples of the gentlest of peace But As it seems to inevitably come thru man A rankling, stirring of our calm waters occurred By a troubled, darkened wind were they stirred At once, a rising discord by all was heard & our peace to that moving storm did fall, defer Until One day almost unannounced a calming hand Reached down into all the chaos so unplanned A Christ, Messiah, Lord, Son of Man Came to walk upon our troubled shores To break the back of that satan’s discord Touching, With only one finger calmly did He come to restore His original peace by His blood was freely outpoured And returned to us was the complete & holy cord Of our God’s Love And, Forever restored The stilled waters to the course of each eternal soul!
Dragonslayer Dragonslayers Are brave Coming only to slay The great fire-breathing monster His destruction he spreads Creating only dark dread Within the human heart Breathing out, creating Our end from his very start But There is a power Overhead That can bring back To life The dead Christ can create a Dragonslayer within you He will give you All the tools Meant to be used Not hidden away On a shelf So Rise up Go forth in His glory Name, Honor Power And take that strong Word’s sharpened sword Stop that evil’s discord And help Christ’s purity to live Within each heart to rise and soar!
Do Not Continue Do not continue to lie And give only half-truths To me, Pastor of today You are supposed to be God’s wisdom-filled sage Do not continue to say I may live as I please Lusting after all the things I only can touch & see Even with all your degrees, You should be on your knees Leading the way To a better day Do not let, allow The evil one to win Lead us away from all This world’s increasing sin Another voice is screaming More loudly every day Telling me you’re Leading the wrong way! Stand up! Be God’s man Lead this country, our land The way it’s supposed to go His Son you MUST SHOW If salvation will come Before it’s too late & many will be left knocking, crying outside forever The glory of God’s heavenly gates
On Speed Crash, crash Thud, thud Lives speed-ed up Whirling around A distracting hub Of meaningless behavior Don’t think for yourself How dare you! Especially about a spirit? Ignore, ignore The impertinent chore Of believing in A Savior! Believe every word they say To guide both night & day Allow that talk show host Over you to hold complete sway! Until he fails to break The enlightened spell & you at last awake Yourself to embrace In your Lord/Creator A cleaner, purer faith!
Stools of Do Nothing!
In this country, USofA, Not all, But many Who claim To carry Christ’s name Do Nothing We enjoy our Comforts As we stroll, Cavort, In our prosperity As glaringly Evil grows, rises Stronger We have not stood against satan’s darkness He stands in jest Of our spiritual weakness Apathy As all around we see Our culture deteriorates It is time to Gird our loins As of old As the ancient Book has told Dress ourselves In God’s Protective Armor For the battle Does rage Each & every day If suffer we must To carry Christ’s name Then suffer we should To protect all that is good All good things flow From the Father Of the heavenly lights It is time for Christ’s American church to Join in the fight!!
