Joyful Hope

Protect us from all anxiety
In a way this has been fulfilled
I have no anxiety whatsoever about
Still in a joyful hope

Despite the evil that surrounds us
Despite the horrors and the death
Wonders will never cease to be
Oh just you wait

The damage to me is done
The pain just always is now
But what gives me away
Is I still love you always

Love Letter

Love comes to us in many different ways
Having a heart so free is testimony
Revealing secrets between the lines
And encompassing them in rhymes

I let my heart flow like a river
But what do you call a body of water
That flows like a river
But is much larger than the sea?

I call that a love letter

Worth Saving

I have got much to give
So I gave it my all to live
Sacrificed the life I wanted
By an offering for others instead

Let me smile while I suffer
As I lift my heart to offer
A great love worth saving
Held closer than any shaving

So I spin right around
Until I am met with a sound
That penetrates my heart
Oh what way to start!

Together Now

To all who are truly one with Jesus Christ
Remember, your actions are together now
And concerning your actions
You will always have a choice

So choose wisely and do not be like a fool
Do be like one who sits idle by the pool
Every opportunity to love will pass you by
Love, with the One who Is Love

Apostolic Journey

As I let the Fire burn
In my heart I have this yearn
But I am not good at leading by example
So I get Him to lead me instead

Where He has led me in my life
Would lead to thousands of volumes
Of an apostolic journey
To seek the love of the lost

After finding them I knelt to the ground
Like a beggar before the Father
Pleading on their behalf
Spare them with Mercy, I have failed to reach them all

Blunder

You make my heart leap when you say my name
Any name uttered past your lips
Gives praise to God for He is good
So bless instead for we are weary

My name slipped like thunder
Under the roof of our Lord
Made me look like a blunder
But produced laughter instead of a sword

Struck with Joy

I dreamt you sang a song to me
A song that pierced my veil
Which struck me with great joy
That what you sought you found

But sadness quickly settled in
As your departure was quicker than your entrance
I felt everything you felt
No wonder you fled

But I maintain my gentleness and kindness
Only with love and to be loved that is all
Everything Love is will be poured out and shared
Another sacrifice for the greater good be bared

Amplified

Relieved you must be
That your hatred of me
Has finally prevailed
Has me up and nailed
On a very cross of my own
Oh these seeds of love I have sown
Watch become something new
Despite the rolling hate ensue
I know who is on my side
In my heart does He reside
The same one you crucified
As a result is amplified

Rhymes

These are troubling times
Can I double my rhymes?
To pierce the deafness
So they too can listen and hear

The Lord has been pouring out mercy
It fills the hearts of those He sees
But receptive hearts some have not
He pours out that mercy nonetheless

Though Mercy lasts forever
The gift of it does not
It will soon come to an end
To those left standing without

But listen not to an old man’s word
I have lived more than a thousand lifetimes
Wisdom is attained by loving her
Not by books or any earthly thing you procure

Heaven is but a heartbeat away
But I stand here as I choose to stay
Engaging in a battle unlike anything you have ever seen
Everyone else thinking it is some wild dream

I care not what others think
I do not listen to the ones that hate
Leave them to their own devices
Look at what they devastate

So leave me be and let me be
The one that God sent me to be
A voice crying in the darkness
He comes to you, be awake!

Demise

O you poor wretched souls!
No one has been truly leading you…
Lift up your hearts to the Lord
He is the only one who can

Lead you to salvation
Lead you to revelation
Of the truth
Of the life

My articulation falls short
My gesticulations ignored
While walls of flames surround and confound
Imparting a situation that has gone worse

Imagine my surprise
To learn of demise
When pity should be poured out
Like never before

On those who are suffering
On the survivors of death
On those without a home
Give to them as they are great in number

I have power to dole out consequences due to inaction
But no one listens after disaster after disaster…

Notable

What were my notable achievements?
I most certainly have none
For any account on my accord
Is incorrect, it has always been the Lord

I love without reservation
You have me running from every nation
Nowhere is there to lay my head
Weary and distraught are my neighbours instead

Heed God
Not the sod
Not the statues
Nor the booze

There is a devil within us all
Feed it and you will fall
Why not feed the Lord
Who starves closer to you than any board?

Fight to save Love
Like a departing dove
Breaking every shackle
Imparting love from the tabernacle

Silent and unyielding
Disparaging for love is apparently annoying
So I will simply sit this one out
While you all battle it out

No Escape

I warned you about the coming of fire
Next comes the Lord’s Fire
To all there is no escape
This Fire is meant to purify
So if you are entirely pure
Nothing gets burned away
But if your purity is in question
The Fire does not ask to burn impurities away
Entirely impure?
There will be nothing left

Vent

To you does my heart thus sing
My love is stronger than any diamond ring
Rejoicing over my love
To you do We send you His Dove

I feel the loss, the suffering, and the pain
Never as a result full of disdain
But compassion towards those whom I feel for
My offering, my pain, my way, same as before

In truth, my way is His Way I follow
Those bloody footprints are hallow
Full of love and compassion
Entering into His Glorious Passion

Waste not this opportune moment
Perhaps even in some way, vent

Heartfelt

As I slink by unnoticed
With every breath
And every beat
The cantor and the song
The heartfelt throng
Echoes across the world
Sustained by the song

I feel like I am
One and the same
But in reality far away
I had my say
Voices from up on above
Said otherwise
And here I am
Singing my song to the dead

Living Truth

I am living truth
Of the testimony I give
That of Jesus Christ
And His Second Coming

Fulfilled promises and gifts
The Lord does not dismiss
His graces are from beyond
Enabling even thrones for men

I speak of the nature of God
His tendency to love unpredictably
Giving gifts to the lost
And raising the dead to new life

Sparks from my mouth ignite
A flame of fire that is desire
To be one with God no matter what
Even if it meant sacrifice

Washed Away

My sins washed away
Gone forever
Never to come back
All by the Blood of Christ
Everything has been revealed
Everything has a price
But the one that redeems us
Pays the ultimate price
Gaining us freedom and glory
So the freedom to love comes into play

Raise

How can I say I love you
If your face is not around?
Your beautiful face
More than just a face
God put His best work on you
Made you perfect in every way
This is something I will say
Love comes in many forms
This one comes from God Himself
Proclaiming your beauty
Like that of a queen
So shy not away
Believe in your love
That it can do more than just sing
It can even raise the dead

Hallways

With these mystical sighs
I am just somebody who tries
To do the mighty will of God

Granted the gifts of seven
All of which came from Heaven
Has me here hated and despised

Ill conceived are their opinions of me
Thinking I am in some fantasy
What will they think of next besides the truth?

But I stand here before God always
Shadows of me are in the hallways
Now I am wondering if I should I even stay
