How Can We?

Victoria, so precious as a baby

How Can We 

 

How can the years pass so slowly when moments pass so fast?

How can we take the precious moments and bottle them to last?

 

How can we live in the moment when we waste our days?

How can we teach the young to learn is much more than to play?

 

How can we look a baby in the eye and not say a prayer?

How can we pass the homeless on the street and not give a care?

 

Why don’t we listen when we know that in helping others we help the Lord?

How can we live in indulgence when the needy are so ignored?

 

How can we know of the broken hearted and not lift a hand to pray?

How can we change the way we live our lives, starting from today?

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

 

The Walk

The Walk

 

At a tender age, barely eleven

I came to know God and a piece of Heaven

 

Summer surrounded me as I wandered along

The air abundant with cardinals songs

 

I was so touched by nature my heart swelled in delight

I stood in awe as a flock of geese took flight

 

The flowers were singing, the grass bejewelled

The birds drank their full where a puddle had pooled

 

Overwhelmed by the beauty of the clear, blue sky

I looked up above to Jesus on high

 

I said “thank You Lord” for all that He made

So very perfect,  and so there I prayed

 

His presence enraptured me, making me smile

I come to know He is real as I walked for that while

 

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

 

Golden Song

Golden Song

 

You bathed me in sweet oil

You sprinkled me with gold

You led me to your banquet hall

You were beautiful to behold

 

Your table stretched on and on

There was no end in site

A seat for every loved one

Surrounded in Heavenly light

 

As I stood, love surrounded me

You laid your hand on mine

You placed a banner over me

And then said “you are mine”

 

My fountain of hope, You filled me up

Joy was over flowing

Your radiant face, fixed on me

Your smile so bright and glowing

 

Into Your Presence

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

 

I Belong to You

I Belong to You

 

II am giving You all my precious King

I can’t be without Your beauty any longer 

You give me love, You give me hope

You make my spirit stronger

 

I am finished chasing empty dreams

Running down empty trails

Your love breaks down all obstacles

Your glory never fails

 

With You the darkness disappears

I am captivated by Your light

As the sun brightens the universe

And the stars shine through the night

 

 

Hidden from Harm

Hidden from Harm

 

You have hidden me under your wings of love

You have given me protection from harm

I sit sheltered from all of life’s misery

Safely I sit in Your arms

 

You pull me out of the schemer’s nest

You rescue me from my foes

You plant me in a place of protection

You care about all of my woes

 

What can I give you to thank you enough?

How can I make Your heart smile?

I will sing of Your love forever more

I will worship You even in trials

 

I bless you my Father, I love you dear Lord

I will never tire of Your ways

You have made a clear path for me

You have blessed me with mercy and grace

Hope Whispers

Hope Whispers

 

Hope whispers through the wind and lands like a gentle dove

Hope lifts the dreariest head and fills its soul with love

 

Love falls softly on longing hearts, ever waiting to adore

Love gifts the soul with her beautiful touch ever giving more

 

Joy joins the ones who seek God’s truth no matter what the season

Joy to all who seek righteousness; who follow God with reason

 

Faith builds a home on solid ground, lest the tempest come

Faith fills the heart with peace when life’s dangers surely come

 

Kindness flows from deep within a loving, giving soul

Kindness when often given, leave one feeling whole

 

Jesus stands so patiently, gently rapping at your heart

Jesus comes that we may know His love and never be apart

 

Your Sweet Voice

When I’m so far down that I can’t see light

I slip so easily to that pit without fright

When the day disappears and there’s only night

I cry out to hear Your sweet sound

 

When my head is filled with thoughts of despair

When the days disappear and nothing is clear

When I can’t form the words in a calm sweet prayer

I know that Your love will abound

 

You lift me up in your tender wings

Oh so sweetly my spirit sings

I am lifted into the arms of a King

And in Your arms I feel love

 

I let you carry my burden called life

I hand you over my worries and strife

Even the worst which seem so rife

I give thanks to You Father  above
