WHO LOVES US SO ( 2018 ) 2018/12/03

Let’s say a prayer, come Christmas Day

For all those children far away

Who’ve lived in need and know no peace

Where joys and dreaming are deceased.

They’ve never lived without the tears

That generate both hate and fears

Whose existence finds ’tis bereft

By times of war, years of neglect.

Oh helpless child who does not know

The gifts of God, Who loves us so !

The shards of light sift through the blind

And leave too many threads to find

That weave along life’s weary road

For those who strive with burdened load.

The way is coarse and over done

At times it’s o’er before begun

If we could seek just one more toss

With God, we’ll strike up one less loss !

Oh Lord, dear God, let not my weakness show

Oh Lord above, help all my strengths to grow

I’ve been Your servant for most of my life

Through pain and sorrow, abundance of strife.

You’ve taught me how to be humble and fair

To give all I’ve got and something to spare

The words in my mouth and deeds that I do

All of this my Lord, is a gift for You !

Oh Solomon, where is thy wisdom now

What confidence your heart and you allow

What kindness does it take for you to live

With all that wisdom that is yours to give ?

Oh foolishness beyond your every dream

Are you as true or only that you seem ?

 

FAR SIMPLER WILL ( 2018 ) 2018/10/19

When the time comes at last and I open the door

When the magic is gone and my heart hits the floor

May the Lord up above and His minions below

Comprehend how I’ve grown and joys that I know

As I go to a place that is far better still

With a mind that is clear and a far simpler will !

 

GOD’S CHARITY ( 2018 ) 2018/09/20

What quiet signals do we send

When we’ve moved so close to the end

What simple gestures do we make

When our whole system’s doomed to break ?

The moment’s here and on its own

Wherein the final action’s known

And as the fateful hour appears

A darkness falls among our peers.

Soon angel wings waft some away

To seek a dawn that’s gone astray

Forgive us Lord for all the sin

And help us save most left within

How fortunate that each may be

Depending on God’s charity !

 

“MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE UNTO THE LORD”

PSALM/ 66:1 / 88:1 / 95:1-2 / 98:4-6 / 100:1-5 / 149:3 / et al.

 

 

HELP FOR STORMY DAYS ( 2018 ) 2018/08/12

Dark storm clouds gather up on high

While shafts of light shoot cross the sky

The rain it tumults to the ground

And fills each crevice to be found.

The thunder and the lightning roar

As darkness creeps inside the door

The streets are full of glistening streams

That flow forever, so it seems.

All lives encounter stormy days

Both cold or sad in countless ways

With this exception each may take

God helps us up before we break !
