Healing Place

Call unto me and I will answer thee
And show thee great and mighty things
Which thou knowest not
Jeremiah 33:3
-
Someone’s’ crying on their pillow
Someone’s praying unbeknownst
Holding each tear in a jar
And counting them like stars
-
When pressures are a many
Festering lodged a stye
None the better to see clearly
Let him wash it from your eye
-
What needless woes we carry
When we bear the weight alone
God is waiting patiently by
To heal what goes awry
-
He numbered each hair upon your head
He made you for His own
Count it joy to learn dear friend
You are not alone
-
Seek the One who knows you
He is at your beckon call
He’ll mend your broken heart
and pour His love on you

Hearts Ablaze

Sacrificial praises
Building stronger stairs
Stepping stones for others
Golden hearts ablaze

Faith that’s growing stronger
Feel the boost within
See the fly ball fall to win
Take it on the chin

Someone gave it up for You
Someone rose again
Christ The Lord the sacrifice
The Lamb of God was slain

Clap your hands Praise Jesus
Tis now the jubilee
And oh how happy for to see
How He has set us free

Sacrificial praises
Building stronger stairs
Stepping stones for others
Golden hearts ablaze

Blue Moon

The hope in each blue moon
Thinks of ways till hung
Golden threads held up in lights
We climb them rung by rung
The Healing from within
Past frozen books shut tight
Still the fire light shines bright
As your pain meets grace with mine
Forgiveness fuses hearts
Gravities still pull
Togetherness, frees stronger wills
In wisdom both sides dine

The Lighthouse

I know that there’s a lighthouse
Watching over me
Shining cross rough waters
Where I’m blind and cannot see
Showing me direction
Making me wise
And it shines so very bright
I cannot close my eyes…

Chorus

You opened my eyes Lord
For a new place tolled
You made me a rock
Made me a rock
Never to roll

Bridge

Tears ware streaming down my face
Then I looked up to see…
That ole Lighthouse
Was beaming
And the foghorn resounded for me…

Chorus

You opened my eyes Lord
For a new place tolled
You made me a rock
Made me a rock
Never to roll..

Now the rock sings out on the dry land
Never moving
Already on the shore
A Miracle wind had touched my brow
Refreshed me on to shore

Chorus

You opened my eyes Lord
For a new place tolled
You made me a rock
Made me a rock
Never to roll..
-
I will be Your living stone…
I will be Your living stone

Clear Night

We must not judge
But do devoir
Discerning truth
That’s what love is for
Concerning good or evil found
Love, it understands it’s bounds
Wisdom ne’er condemning, waits
Till seen, Gods full circumference
With Holy Spirit hearing, hence
Speaks in love and benevolence
A voice as clear as diamonds cut
Not to judge, but reverence
Proclaims in faith, the truth, the light
The Word with mercy lining up
Gods heart beaming, clear and bright
Twill burn with fire and staff
All through the night

November Nights

It’s just a hop and a skip and a jump, across the Butternut bridge.
The wood-bird is cooing, a lovers song.
The fire is cracklin, warm … come inside
You know my love, that it has been too long
-
The wind across the meadow, is open wide…
The bridge is calling you, to come on home.
I hear the copper teapot, gently whistling.
Come on in … before it gets too cold.
-
The lonesome night air gives and gives, forever.
The texture of sweet smoke, is in my eye.
The taste of yesteryear, brings out the spices,
of perfectly pleasing, plum pies, piled high
-
The screen door slapping time, with loosened wing nuts.
Just a hop, skip, and a jump, with porch light near.
Missing notes of jingling swings, I wait … to … hear.
Sounds that we once knew, my friend so dear.

Missing notes of jingling swings, I wait … to … hear
Sounds of you … are whistling in my ear.

Faith and surety

Faith and Surety

Tests and trials they may come
But they cannot ever harm
Just one glimpse of love from Thee
Will Whilst we wait
Hush all alarm

We are always safe my friend
Come what may or come what be …
On His loving word, we stand
In Faith and Surety
-
In His loving arms we rest…
Springing forth newness of life
To Glorify Thy Holy Name
In Strength and Power and might
-
Tests and trials they may come
But they cannot ever harm
Just one glimpse of love, from Thee
Will, while we wait
Hush all alarm
-
We are always safe, my friend
Come what may, or come what be …
On His loving word, we stand
In Faith and Surety
