When I was young, my world brand new

There were so many things to do

So much to learn with time to share

With excess and enough to spare

Well, things have changed, it’s not the same

The world we knew now plays a game

I get discouraged, don’t you too

Have you decided what to do ?

It seems as though we have no choice

Until we learn to grow a voice !

 

AMEN.

Help me,  oh Lord, to find the way

Back home to You at end of day

Give me the strength to carry on

When all my energy seems gone

Show me the path that leads to peace

Where all my pain at last will cease !

 

NOT ALL BLISS ( 2019 ) 2019/05/08

Each day I rise with great surprise

To find the world before my eyes

I thank the Lord that I’m alive

And query how I still survive !

I’ve lived this life a long, long time

Indeed it’s been a tedious climb

At times I’ve thought I can’t go on

But rules are what life’s based upon !

Forgive me Lord for doubting You

What e’er You’ve taught, it is all true

I’ll carry on,  I promise this

And know that life is not all bliss !

 

 

 

 

PRINCIPLES ( 2019 ) 2019/05/06

How I’d like to think we’re all the same

That we all possess the selfsame aim

That our instincts tell us what’s correct

And the principles we must expect,

That we live our lives in manner strong

In a place in which respect belongs,

That we honor truth and liberty

In a world wherein all men are free !

 

BE ALWAYS THERE ( 2019 ) 2019/04/15

The night is cool, the air is sweet

God’s vernal world lies at our feet

Each dried up twig now sports new leaf

The winter’s gone to our relief

Our barren coast revives once more

With summer dreams in full encore.

How glad am I to feel awake

And comprehend just what’s at stake

This life we have is all we need

Let’s thank the Lord and pay Him heed

As He’s the answer to all prayer

Oh blessed Lord, be always there !

 

FOREVER FRIEND ( 2019 ) 2019/04/14

There was a dream that I once had

Which made my memories so glad

Long time ago when I was young

And all my hopes were yet unsung

The energy still kept its  charm

And laughter held no great alarm.

Tis time for freedom and for joy

When all life’s pleasures are employed

Oh, would that God was always there

To hear our ever grateful prayer

And see us through until the end

He is our true and constant friend !

 

HE IS NOT BLIND ( 2019 ) 2019/04/06

Good morning world, I’ve come to say

The Lord gives us another day

A day to do what e’er we choose

A day to win, a day to lose.

And if we’re smart we’ll use it well

That others may His story tell

And so it moves us closer to

His day of judgement tried and true.

It matters much our real intent

Like how our wisdom has been spent

And have helped our fellow man

The best as many of us can.

Our God is fair, unerring kind

But to our faults He is not blind !
