See our blest flag at half staff flown

Whence seeds of valor there were grown

To honor heroes who have died

For God and man and nation’s pride !

AMEN.

When we were young so long ago

Seems each one had places to go

Our world held opportunity

At least a million sights to see.

Before the young had dreams to share

Or found someone that truly cared

There was a path that each might take

Beside the promises they’d make.

In youth we’re prone to fool around

And fail to keep our feet aground

There’s always one more thing to do

Some song to sing or dragon slew

Rooftops to scale or mountains climbed

Oceans to cross with not much time

Hopes, schemes and plans, all praises sung

Tis sad gets wasted on the young !

Oh sing a song and sing it loud

The words must rise above the crowd

Oh sing it strong, elucidate

Learn all the words, don’t hesitate

Let voices rise in chorus true

Sing “Hallelujah, Christ” to You !

 

 

 

 

EMPTY GRAVE ( 2018 ) 2018/02/21

I hear a tune it croons to me

A half forgotten memory

The vestige of what used to be

When you and I were young and free.

The time’s  long gone, it passed us by

Too late to query, wonder why

The heart remembers so do I

Tis the moment to bid goodbye.

The blessed Lord who guides our way

And taught us each from day to day

His wisdom reaches out to save

This lonely soul from empty grave !

 

 

 

 

SEASON JOYS ( 2017 ) 2017/12/16

To all my friends and those I love

I don’t know what we’re thinking of

But I am guessing holidays

With thanks to God whom we all praise

For all the joys the season brings

And all the songs the angels sing !

 

PRAISE GOD THE KING ( 2017 ) 2017/10/16

It doesn’t make much sense to me

To claim some bogus victory

Or just pretend that who you are

Is so important by much far

Who cares if one’s the simpler sort

If complications count for nought.

I’d rather be a bird on wing

Who joins his species in birdsing

Than stand upon a mighty stage

With those who are the latest rage.

They curry favor all life long

By singing out song after song,

Instead of praising God the King

Who has created everything !

Oh Lamb of God, sweet gentle soul

Help me to reach my proper goal

Teach me to follow in Your ways

And learn to use my precious days

In dedication to my God

No matter where it is I trod

May I find grace and peace with Him

And join His choir of cherubim !
