Smooth Sailing

I felt God’s love from up above
As I confessed my sin
Sweet conviction tender still
Cleansed me deep within

As I brought it straight up to the Lord
The pain and guilt rescind
Holy Spirit flowed in grace
With His cool and gentle wind

Removed the heaviness within
How clearly I saw You
Falling fresh upon me Jesus
Your love shined through

Freed at last, for I was forgiven
Heaven opened wide
I owe my life to Jesus Christ
Who ransomed me and died

Holy Father filled with power
Tears were rolling in
Like a river in my heart
Cleansing deep past sin

The new day came with sweet relief
Yielding to You whole
Comfort solace reassured
Peace from You alone

The Dawning

Dearest oh Lord
As evening doth fade
The new morning dawns
With sun on the glade

Your still quiet voice
I am tuned to oh Lord
With the angels resounding
In Holy accord

You Fill up my being
With Exultation
Your great love and life
Leading me on

Faith

Praise Him though the night my child
Feel your heart go light
His quitting clouds shall cover thee
When faith regards the night

Oh what troubles fade away
Nothing matters more
Jesus with you all night through
A peaceful sleep in store

Her Call

She had a voice
as soft As a babies breath
Yet It carried
Through the deepest canyons
To gather back her quiver full
To the rivers rest
And all that she lived for
Was her children at her breast
She was finest at refining
Her gold in her nest

Better Things

“He will cover you with His feathers
Under His wings you will find refuge”
Psalm 91

Better things

Placing all our brokenness
Into The Fathers hand
His soft laid wing, that broke our fall
In Jesus, safely land

Strong and beating heart, now live
In New life, rest your brow
Gone, the sorrows, gone the pain
The time to rest is now

When our best laid plans, release
And seem to come to nought
Resting neath His wings, we see
Better things has Jesus wrought

Springtime Menagerie

Tea for me
Outside today
In the bower cafe
I’m watching,
As all the newly born, buds appear
Abiding in the vine
In honor of our stately King
Sprouting upward, outward and skyward
Leaping near, soft carpets of creeping phlox
Reaping wreathes, for roses
Breathing in clouds of dainty mist
Neath the weeping umbrella
With it’s cotton candy tufts
Hanging over big green elephant flaps and tusks
Towering atop the living rocks
In purples, blues, yellows, greens
Such a colorful menagerie
Enfolding me
The sun is breaking free
My mind is buzzing
But for a moment
I’m a sitting bee
