A Treasure None Can Steal


, , , , , , ,

I set out today to write a song for You
Which my Lord, would glorify Your name
In the beginning, as I started writing it
No words could my mind tightly frame

I felt within some deep tiny trickles
Small essences which seemed to flee
And as my spirit tried to embrace them
I found no words still would come to me

So I thought of all the beautiful things
Which each day Your grace brings to me
Finding words beginning to come to life
As your spirit’s love now set them free

I love You, Lord, as each new day is born
And deep within my heart its very real
Your love is such an exquisite treasure
Which I will never allow anyone to steal.
Job 23:12

“I have not departed from the command
of His lips; I have treasured the words
of His mouth more than my necessary food.

The Beauty In Your Face


, , , , , ,

True love one day
Did find me, when
I was all alone

When I sought to
Find that special
One whom I could
Call my own

True love was sent
From up above to
Reward me for my faith

And never was love
So beautiful as when
I found its beauty
Alive in your face.

Written April 1977.

A True Reward Which Stays


, , , , , , ,

Wendell A. Brown

A very precious spiritual gift
lives deep within my mind
It daily fills my heart with joy
So I’ll not know lonely times

You are the one lasting bond
Which daily embraces my heart
With a real soulful happiness
Causing a inner joy to start

Lord you influence all I choose
Each morning as the day begins
My spirit is moved to sing aloud
Lovely musical notes in unison

About the joy which lives deeply
In my many inner parts within
Relationship with you is the key
To keep true love’s fire burning

The pleasures of true love belong
To the faithful ones who daily seek
The pleasures of genuine blessings
Which each day satisfies their needs

As they were set free from captivity
By the One who restores many lives
Their eyes, each day look to heaven
Finding His presence by their side

You are the joy which comes alive
From new loved filled hearts each day
As many happily seek the inner peace
They now find in their lives to stay.
Proverbs 11:18
A wicked person earns deceptive wages,
but the one who sows righteousness
reaps a sure reward.

Joyful Psalms Of Praise


, , , , , ,


With your love, you
love me, with your
strength, you Lord
Strengthen me

By your living word I am
Given wisdom, faith, and
Knowledge with which to
Guide my ways

I have need of your love
Every moment where sin
Has a chance to enter,
Where worldly lust has
A chance to rise

I need your living word to
Guide my feet, for your word,
Is surely an illuminating
light for my path

For alone, I will fall alone,
I will stumble alone, and
My life would be given into
Worldly sin

Without you, my mind might
seek To do the evil which
might breed in a lustful heart

I cannot stand alone without
Your power, your grace, your
Love, and wisdom to guide me

My bones would become brittle
As a result of sin, and my body
Would become sickly falling prey
To worldly decay

My youthfulness might disappear
Enabling sin to have its way
with me, if you are not near me

I shall age before those who
Are older in years, for I will
Become old and disabled, my eyes
Blind and my hands feeble

I will be lost in the worlds
Darkness, and madness of sin,
If you my Lord are, not my rock,
my sure foundation…

For only through you can one
Gain eternal life, an eternal
Gift Which shall endure forever

Only in you is paradise found
For your love is the one true
love which inhabits heavens
paradise forever within itself

I have such a great need of you
To be my God, my Lord and my
Master, to supplement me all of
My days spiritually

I beg for the crumbs from your
Table of life, so that my spirit
May have Its hunger filled…

That I may always be a part of you
My master, as you are inside of me
Filling me with your lasting love

So that you will never say to me
Again, If you love me, you will
Do all my commands…

And I will reply gratefully to you
Lord, “I will do as you command and
even more.”

So that when my restoration is made
Complete, you will seat me in the
Presence of my brothers and sisters…

Where together we will praise you, Lord,
Morning, noon, and evening with Joyful
Psalms of praise.

(Written, October 1976)

Psalm 98-1
A Psalm. Sing to the LORD a new song, for he
has done marvelous things; his right hand and
his holy arm has worked salvation for him.

Psalm 28: 7-8
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my
heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart
leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
The LORD is the strength of his people, a
fortress of salvation for his anointed one.

Proverbs 29: 25 The Message



, , , , , , ,

Sustain me, Lord,
give to me those
things I need

Help me to overcome
those things which
might hinder our

Change my heart as
needed always filling
it with your warmth
and love

That I may be to others
what you have been to
me… a consistent and
wonderful blessing

Sustain me, Lord,
nourish and cultivate
me with the wisdom and
understanding of Your

Help me to grow and
blossom, that I may
be more ‘productive’
for You and many
others in this world.

(January 1977)

Isaiah 40: 28-31 (NIV)
Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

Simply Put, True Love Blossoms, Will Always Make Me Stay, You Take My Breath Away,


, , , ,

Simply Put

My heart embraces you daily
As your smile sweeps me away
And I am now as always
Of your love a willing slave

It does not take much to please me
For it’s so very easy when it comes to you
You provide such simple pleasures
With everything you say and do

I try not to ever think about
How my life would surely be
If I spent it alone without your love
Right here so close to me

So I speak each day in silent prayer
To my God who has blessed me so
Who graced my life daily with your tender love
Making it a treasure I will not let go.

True Love blossoms

True love blossoms into forever pearls
Polished by eternity’s lasting kiss
And moments that started within a tiny dream
Lay on a foundation that will always last

As separate hopes and dreams now become one
Never having to struggle alone again
Two inspired hearts both took a leap of faith
For a life of love that will never end

And as we reach for the others warm embrace
Our lips still meet sharing a tender kiss
We find that as time has gently passed
How our union has become so truly blessed

For we were always meant to be
Forever living by the others side
While our love has kept us so very close
Tied together where eternity lies.

Will Always Make Me Stay

The way you look at me sometimes
Often sweeps my mind away
Leaving only images of your beauty
To help my mind pass the time of day

For the look I see upon your face
Needs not words to let me know
What the look does express so vividly
For only my heart understands it so

This day it has learned to decipher
All the looks you pass my way
No longer leaving my heart to ponder
Why you want me in your life to stay

And as I receive the loving gaze you send my way
Which always becomes the best part of my day
I find myself eagerly wanting to return to you
A look of love in that same special way.

You Take My Breath Away

As beautiful as you are
you make the Sun cry
when he slips away at sunset
because he did not want to
share your beauty with the
moon and the stars

You make the night a joy for me
When you kiss my lips and I fall
fast asleep dreaming of your beauty,
your kiss, your smile, and I sleep
so satisfied

When I rise in the morning, I find
the essence of your kiss is still upon
my lips, feeding the fire of your love’s
desire and the flames that always
burn…deep within your heart

And you are so wonderful to be near
so very tantalizing to touch, and
you are truly amazing to know…
“For you take my breath away.”

Your Treasured Gifts


, , , , ,

The light of your love
and grace fills my heart
with a never-ending bliss

And each day this joy
inspires my spirit with
the sweet taste of
heavens kiss…

For who has a love
like You Lord whose
protection never leaves
their side

And the glow others see
upon my face also see it’s
radiance shining in my

It’s not me alone but
the best parts of You
which daily in my life
exist inside

Where Your eternal gift
blessings of love, grace,
peace and joy will as my
dearest treasures in my
life remains alive.
Deuteronomy 7:9
Know therefore that the LORD your God
is God, the faithful God who keeps
covenant and steadfast love with those
who love him and keep his commandments,
to a thousand generations.

Psalm 36:7
How precious is your unfailing
love, O God!

Psalm 86.5
You, Lord, are forgiving and good,
abounding in love to all who call
to you.

Psalm 86:15
But you, O Lord, are a God merciful
and gracious, slow to anger and
abounding in steadfast love
and faithfulness.

Death Of A Leaf


, , , ,

The battle was furious
This cold winter day…
The winds of the enemy
Were very strong…

And yet the hero stood
Unconquered but he knew
It would not be for long
As he had to fight the
Freezing rain and the
Cold winter winds

He knew as he felt the
The heaviness of his frail
Body, as it became so heavy
And its spiritual essence of
Life was so numb…

He soon began to realize
That his battle would not
be won…and he fell as he
was detached from the branch
Which fed him life

And as he fell, he awaited
Death the master to come,
And as he breathed his last
Tiny breath…

…he realized it was all
for the best…

For if he had lived, he
Would have only been so
Alone for the rest of
His brethren already
Succumbed to their deaths

As there were no more leaves
left alive on the tree.

This Thing Called Love


, , , , , ,


If you allow my love to
enter then the fear will
will surely go away

The doubt which tries to
creep in as a genuine love
seeks now to stay

If you let my love enter pass
the invisible walls which you
have set in place

Then nothing will hinder the
beginning progress of a loves
sweet tender grace

Allowing you to embrace the
enchanting magic of hope which
brings to your life a taste
of lasting bliss

Opening the entrance to your
heart wherein lies the beauty
of a lovely soul to kiss

You will begin to taste
how wonderfully beautiful
love will cause each day in
your life to be

As your world fills with this
priceless blessing of joy which
from your life will never leave

For this moment of perfect joy
was predestined, to taste of a
love’s beginning breaths

Because within our hearts we
both prayed to God asking
that we would never receive
anything less…

Then a genuine selfless and
breathtaking love.

“I Love You. Yes I Do”


, , , , , ,

288e7aaa-ea8b-44f5-a687-ce5fd12662e6 (1)

Come to me let me
hold you close
under starlit skies

Let me embrace the total
essence of you and let
my lips not ever lie

But let my heart strike
a lovely note that will
never leave you blue

And as we embrace so
tenderly realize that
I love you, yes I do

Let the moon be
our shining jewel
until a forever time

Let the stars of heaven
become the strength with
which our love together
softly binds

Let our heart’s first
sweet love song forever
last inside our minds

And always know that
my love is only yours
until the end of time

Let this moment which
we have found never
lose its magic touch

Never let the thrill
of the moment fade
away, this moment we
love so much

Let the warmth of this hour
find a resting place in
which our hearts will always stay

And let us pray to our Lord
of heaven above that these
genuine feelings never go away

Let my two arms always
feel the embrace of
the sweetest love to be ever found

Let our lips always meet
sharing tender moments
where sweet happiness abounds

And never between us let
a time to come where our
moments we may waste

Let us promise, the other
the truest of loves nectar
in our lives, we will always

Realizing as we grow old
together in our love that
stays so rich and true

That I spoken these very
tender words to you
“I Love You, Yes I Do.”
