From My Cave

From My Cave

 

In the midst of the cave

haunted and torn

you called me to life

and I was reborn

 

“out of the darkness

i called forth the light

created the universe

and made your world bright”

 

I hide in the shadows

but they are your home

working your will

when I think I’m alone

 

“Embrace me, my child

as I show you my ways

Be not afraid

as I master your days”

 

With fear and trembling

I reach for His hand

So scared of tomorrow

So alone I stand

 

Help me dear Father

To run to your arms

Show me Your love

Pour out your charms

 

Light my path, Light my days

As I stumble and fall

Grasping at faith

To You I will call

Wandering Girl

 

Broken and destitute, lost and gone

She wanders her way as she saunters along

 

Ignored and forgotten, who’s child is this

That once was a wee one who adored mother’s kiss

 

She breaks the heart of those she once knew

Then a beautiful girl, now broken and blue

 

What can I do to undo this oppression?

She is ruled by darkness, stuck in depression

 

Where can I turn when life leaves her behind?

Unnoticed, forgotten, spiritually blind

 

I pray for God’s mercy to draw her in tight

I pray that she’ll relent to Him and give up her fight

 

I pray for peace to embrace her poor, tortured soul

I pray for God’s blessing to see her once again whole

His Battle

His Battle

The battle that surrounds you is of spirit, not your own
I told you it is Mine and so it is

Rest in this secret place as you worship Me alone
Give unto Him that which is His

Though demons rage and beasts abound
On Me make your weary eyes gaze

My child you stand on Holy Ground
When with angels, you sing out My praise

My victory lies in weapons fashioned not by hand
The sword of the spirit yet is prayer

The battle of Jericoh was won by a band
The enemy fled as worship filled the air

You continue your worry, concerned for tomorrow
Not trusting in My perfect strength

My children all learn that their own path brings sorrow
I’m their redeemer no matter sin’s length

So stand up equiped to war your enemy’s attack
Be still and pick up your sword

Put on praise, truth and righteousness, to cover your back
This victory won, faith’s reward

Listen

Listen to the beauty that leads us on our way

Listen to the sunlight that guides us through our day

Listen to the trees as they direct us strong and true

Listen to the birds as their joy is shared for you

Listen to the flowers as they gaze with loving face

Listen… just listen and see God’s love in all His grace

 

The Lost Ones

Version 2

The Lost Ones

 

I reach My hand out to the poor, the needy and the ill

I reach My hand to the broken, to save them’s My will

 

Poor in spirit, faint of heart, I love one and all

My voice a gentile, prodding tone, it is to them I call

 

I ache to save the lost ones who I created with my Hand

I ache to draw them to Me, that their hearts would understand

 

I pour My love out like sweet oil, beckoning with my voice

I pour My heart out for their sake waiting to be their choice

 

I reign on high, I’m Lord of All, I’ve already won the battle

These souls are rightfully mine to take, not abandoned chattel

 

Wisdom’s Song

Based on Proverbs 8

Wisdom’s Song

 

Wisdom dances with delight 

For those who walk her path

The foolish run down crooked roads 

Leading to their wrath

 

Her veil streaming in the breeze

Her arms open to above

Patiently waiting to be heard

She is filled with Heaven’s love

 

Imparting revelation

She lingers near your door

Once you have a taste of her

You will always come for more

 

All the words she speaks are just

From her path you must not stray

Wisdom pours herself into you

When you decide to walk in her way

 

Her lyrics will empower you 

To make the choice that’s right

Her voice  will save you from the traps 

Set for you by night

 

Sin waits to devour all 

With a seductive, honey song

So easy to fall into sin 

And quickly turn to wrong

 

Be steadfast in your love of her

Don’t look to left or right

Follow the path that is filled with love

And receive her glorious light

Into Your Presence

 

Pull me into Your presence Lord

For each day I love you more

I want You to know that I believe

I want You to know it’s You I adore

 

You say take courage for all is well

You’ve laid out my path and my way

You’ve planned my every moment

You say only to carry this day

 

For You I will fight all my fears

You place me in the depth of Your love

For You have wiped all my tears

And from hereon only look to above

 

I belong only to You forever

For Your love burns inside me

Like a father with a newborn babe

You protect and safely guide me

 

I know You will not fail me

You have prepared my way

Your glory overwhelms me

More love poured out each day
