I’M WAITING HERE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/28

When  I was young  and full of dreams

My  heart was  bursting at the seams

The  world  about was bright and smart

And  I tried  hard  to care impart.

The  passing years  grew wings and flew

I  did the  best that  I could do.

There  were some days  I shan’t disguise

As  tears welled  up and filled my eyes.

I  searched for  love I could not store,

Love  that I never knew  before

And  found it in  the Word of God

In  chapter,  verse,  t’was  not that  hard.

I’ve  learned since then,  His  Truth  is all

I’m  waiting  here  upon  His call !

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 !


HIS BUGLES CALL ( 2018 ) 2018/06/22

” I am a man beyond reproach

And proud to say God is my coach “.

Perhaps these words were said aloud

To Pharoah and his hostile crowd

When Moses stood before the throne

And pled the case for the Lord’s own,

His people and all they possessed

Escaped into the wilderness.

While we who now observe these days

Hold fast remembering God’s ways

The Lord protects us one and all

Until that day His bugles call !



DEDICATION ( 2018 ) 2018/01/09

My heart goes out to those I love

And those that I think highly of

To all who honor glory and

Work hard to help and heal the land.

Our youth and those who dedicate

Their lives to save this world from hate

Like those who rise most every day

That keep us safe from evil’s sway.

To all who’ve sacrificed their limbs

And those who wind up war’s victims

But most of all to those who gave

Their everything some peace to save !




HAVEN’T A CLUE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/09

Sometimes it’s hard to believe God sees

All the troubled souls upon their knees

Like those broken children still confined

To a system that’s both deaf  and blind

And the hungry masses on the road

Have no one there to lighten the load.

Their dreams of glory shrivel and die

As the rest of the world passes by

While you and I don’t know what to do

Please help us Lord, we haven’t a clue !


ANOTHER DAY ( 2017 ) 2017/03/08

Who is there left for man to say

Come let us walk the Shepherd’s way

To join into His special flock

That from this place will evil block.

We are His army to command

That stand and wait on His demand

There is a job that we need do

We’ll begin now and see it through.

There is no other way to win

The world is dying heaped in sin

Help us, oh Lord show us the way

To earn ourselves another day !






GET IT STRAIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/02/09

There is a joy that giving brings

Among all life’s vast happenings

Love of family and of faith

The need for God to keep us safe

In hope that we may overcome

The evil we’re escaping from.

The sense to know that God is there

To hear our every hope and prayer

Perhaps this time we’ll get it straight

And all wind up at Heaven’s Gate !



THE AMEN ( 2016 ) 2016/01/18

There among the shadows in a deep dark borrowed cave

The son of man was taken his body to be laved

While most of those who knew him did hide along the way

Fearing their discovery before the end of days.

Imagine their surprise when they learned that he was gone

There was no way to find him neither there nor beyond

It took three days to learn he no longer knew the grave

But risen forth had he for his people to be saved !


HEAVEN’S GATE ( 2015 ) 2015/07/16

I envy not your lives to come

Now that my own is almost done

I would not walk this way again

To feel the loss or hide the pain.

I thank our Lord my time has passed

I know not how my heart did last

And move to that which is beyond

Without a will to carry on.

Somewhere within this universe

Bide powers that are too perverse

They creep and crawl and lie in wait

To bar our way through heaven’s gate !


TO SING HIS PRAISE ( 2014 ) 2014/12/25

The story’s old we know it well

It never grows too old to tell

For those who heard it new today

Its wonder will not fade away

But grows and grows within the heart

To soon become a vital part

Of how we live and what we think

Since this old world stands on the brink

The time is now to make the choice

Take courage here to raise your voice

And sing the praise we need to hear

As our dear Lord must soon appear !


TRUE ALARM ( 2014 ) 2014/04/22

The winds of change blow loud and clear

The sound incites a world in fear

Where shall we search for safety’s sake

How can we heal the pain and ache ?

Is this part of the coming age

Have we now turned another page,

Are we to find we have become

The wart upon old Satan’s thumb ?

Tis true to think we mean no harm

Except to echo this alarm

To save our faith, our way of life

From evil’s ill and anger’s strife !



CHRISTMAS DAY ( 2013 ) 2013/12/21

True, Christ was not born on Christmas Day

In that foreign land so far away,

You must believe all that He has done

He’s the long expected blessed One.

It matters not what the details are

Or how long ago or just how far

For dates are fallible and unsure

It’s what will be that’s truth to endure

Rejoice for any date He will come

Our salvation and God’s only Son !
