In my life…
I am a part of You,
and in death I am
a part of you also,
and I shall never
be without you my
God

For sunshine shall
I not see, nor the
darkness shall find
me, nor shall the
power of evil overcome
me, without you Lord
being close to me.

And when the rain falls
from the sky, and the
fires of justice from the
heavens, you shall be
with me Lord as my judge
and my redeemer.

Never shall pestilence
or disease find me alone,
for you shall always see
to my well-being, always
staying by my side.

You are the truest answer
to my life, and as I bask
in the radiance of your love
I know in life I will prosper
as you’ll never let me go.

For in life I am a part of you,
and in death, I will be a part
of you. Whatever my role shall
be in this life or when my new
eternal life begins, I shall
always be a part of you my Lord.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalms 16: 5-8.
Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
you make my lot secure. The boundary lines
have fallen for me in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance.
I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;
even at night, my heart instructs me.
I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
With him at my right hand, I will not be
shaken.

NEVER GOES AWAY

Tags

, , , , ,

Deep within me, my heart is speaking
Of the love found written on its walls
And as it continues to beat very rapidly
My heart will anxiously await your call

I find Lord when I am sleeping peacefully
I will begin to feel your spirit very near
Inspiring me to create a new psalm for you
As each word in my heart becomes so clear

Your living word serenades me with its light
Filling my mind with many thoughts of praise
As my spirit begins to dance so gracefully
Because of the blessings, He has brought my way

Even the times when I feel not wanting to answer
Your spirit Lord will daily increase my faith
Rewarding my heart for its steady belief in you
Because your eternal love will never go away.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 100:5
For the LORD is good and his love endures
forever; his faithfulness continues
through all generations.

THE GREATEST GIFT RECEIVED

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

The greatest gift I ever received
Is the pure love Lord you gave to me
The grace which embraces my heart
With your spirit daily empowering me

Your living word set me free from sin
Never again living in constant fear
When you Lord, promised me forgiveness
Believing you I cried inspiring tears

Lord, you said you will be with me
As my shepherd in my life always
Your spirit fills and sustains me
As my words inspire many to the way

You have shaped me from my beginnings
With the beauty of your consuming love
You are the one I seek to embrace daily
The only One my heart daily thinks of.

I choose to serve you only each day
So many in the world might come to see
Drinking of the joy alive in your words
In their lives can set them free.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Isaiah 53:1-12
Who has believed what he has heard from us?
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been
revealed? For he grew up before him like
a young plant, and like a root out of dry
ground; he had no form or majesty that we
should look at him, and no beauty that we
should desire him. He was despised and
rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and
acquainted with grief, and as one from
whom men hide their faces he was despised,
and we esteemed him not. Surely he has
borne our griefs and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by
God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for
our transgressions; he was crushed for our
iniquities; upon him was the chastisement
that brought us peace and with his stripes
we are healed. …

Matthew 12:21
And in his name, the Gentiles will hope.”

Revelation 3:20
Behold, I stand at the door and knock.
If anyone hears my voice and opens the
door, I will come in to him and eat with
him, and he with me.

A MORNING SONG OF LOVE

Tags

, , , , , ,

My heart awakens daily with a song
Which I recite happily for my King
A song of love, a song of praise
Because He means everything to me

And on my knees, I recite the words
Daily before His heavenly throne
And lovingly He accepts what is spoken
Knowing that my lips are never done

For He saved me from a darkened pit
From sinking into a tormented hell
He gave His life a ransom for me
And now my grateful heart must tell

Of His goodness and tender mercy
Of His mighty grace which set me free
How He saved me a once lowly sinner
Now giving me all I would ever need

I will always have a sweet song to sing
About the salvation, He alone does bring
He is my heart’s most precious treasure
And in my daily life, He is my everything

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 16: 5-11

You, Lord, are all I have, and you give
me all I need; my future is in your
hands. How wonderful are your gifts to
me; how good they are! I praise the Lord,
because he guides me, and in the night my
conscience warns me. I am always aware of
the Lord’s presence; he is near, and
nothing can shake me. And so I am
thankful and glad, and I feel completely
secure because you protect me from the
power of death. I have served you
faithfully, and you will not abandon me
to the world of the dead. You will
show me the path that leads to life;
your presence fills me with joy and brings
me pleasure forever.

WOULD ALWAYS LAST

Tags

, , , , ,

would always last

Sometimes when I am very close to you
I don’t need to hear your lips speak
For I can read deep within your eyes
The feelings your heart forever keeps

If I were to take you by your hand
Walking together taking a step or two
Your heart will speak through its touch
Always telling me that you love me true

When I kiss you upon your lovely lips
My heart is still filled with the thrill
Which first I felt when I met your smile
Making a special moment more than real

It still works that same spellbinding way
As the first moment when first we met
For I never needed to hear your lips speak
For your eyes told me our love would last.

(to my wife – 1978)

A new beginning in their lives each day
If you follow the Lord God of Your Fathers
You’ll help another find the true life-way.

A BLESSING

I rise each day with a song in my heart
And so rich is its blossoming melody
For I know my heart has heard his call
Yes His dear precious call of life to me

I sleep so peacefully throughout the night
Dreaming lovingly of His grace which stays
I know that he always listens to my prayers
For I daily feel His answers coming my way

I know I will never be left to strive alone
For his spirit has made my heart its home
And as I reach out to him with praise words
He eases the aches and pain within my bones

For His love is a very true healing medicine
Whose touch will evenly flow deep within
And with each tender touch, I receive daily
I know more embraces will come my way again

…because of His deep love for me.

The LORD’s blessing enriches, and he
adds no painful effort to it.

The steadfast love of the Lord never
ceases; his mercies never come to an
end; they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.

LOVE STILL ENDURES “HAPPY MOTHER”S DAY DEBORAH”

Tags

, , , , ,

First, your lovely smile enchanted me
Then your eyes made me question why
That beautiful moment when we first met
Why my heart began burning deep inside

I could not believe what had happened
Finding my lips were too shy to say
To let you know how long I had waited
To be able to share moments of your day

It seemed like a flashing blur that moment
The kind which quickly comes and disappears
Yet so very enjoyable was each lovely second
As every minute’s intent became very clear

We have become special parts of each other
A true blending of a genuine love so pure
As initial feelings became love at first sight
And now many years later our selfless love endures.

MY LIFE’S BEST CHOICE

Tags

, , , , , ,

Your Spirit feeds the fires in my eyes
Always gently He daily fans the flames
Yet no smoke seems to rise from the fire
As its origins are far from being plain

Beginning with intertwining feelings
Which Lord I feel for You deep inside
His touch blesses my heart and spirit
As I seek to keep his blessings mine

His spiritual fire brings my eyes to sparkle
Like the brightest stars shining in the night
Causing them to desire and seek the embrace
Of the One who shares His amazing pure life

As Your Spirit’s fire inspires me, Lord,
Gently fanning within me a fiery flame
In my heart, I find on its inner walls
Is inscribed very passionately Your name

The living word which your spirit shares
Inspires life, to begin with, words I write
And as they enter into my heart and mind
They bless my spirit with Your life light

I find I am waking at night to answer
The calling of your spirit’s voice
and as our spirits commune together
Serving you Lord was my life’s best choice.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 42:1
As the deer pants for the water brooks,
So my soul pants for You, O God.

Psalm 119:81
I long for your deliverance; I have looked
to your word, placing my hope in it.

THE GIFT YOU BRING MY WAY

Tags

, , , , ,

I found today I truly missed your smile
and the joyful happiness which it brings
For there is truly no stronger feeling
then the bliss your smile daily brings

I joyfully look forward to seeing you
with the completion of my day
I wait at home so very patiently
for the lovely smile, you bring my way

For you are my heart’s sweet passion
the true inspiration it daily feels
And all that is alive inside my heart
will tell you the feelings are oh’ so real

And the only moment I anxiously await
when the evening brings an end to our day
Is when I lovingly embrace your inspiring smile
and the priceless love it brings my way.
