The Children

Leave me the hell alone she cries
Inside her aching head
I've had much more than I can take 
Sometimes I feel I'm dead
Oh shepherd don't your flock forsake 
Alone on Calvarys Hill
How much can a body take 
When your mind has had its fill
 
A light so bright and hopeful
A picture perfect birth
A world of wonder, laid before
This seedling of the earth
To nurture's but a wistful dream
A momentary lapse
A father wrapped up in himself
A mom lost in her past
 
Can harm I do while wishing
The Angels gentle hands
Embrace this failing empty shell
This web of empty strands
A love of love itself it seems
Of passion and desire
Turns Sailors into monsters
And Matrons into liars
 
What makes a wonder wonderful
What makes a blessing blessed
'Tis you alone we come to know
When not so self- obsessed
Lord, help us not to lose your light
And wallow in the dirt
And help instead to nurture
All we're given at our birth
 
A wish alone can guide us
If truth is what we seek
Protect the weak and hungry
The burdened and the meek
Lord, make me strong enough to show
The children in my care
Their path is guided by your light
Their Souls are in your care

For my mother's birthday

Dear Lord thank You for a mother
who stayed through it all with us,
who has shown us the way to church,
because in You today I trust.
Thank You for every hardship she faced
for she has taught us sacrifice
now I can give my all to You,
nothing else would have sufficed.
Thank You Lord for all her toil
because she represents great strength
for even in adversity
she persevered through great a length.

If anyone be candidate
let it be her You honour Lord
for You know all about her struggle
and surely You are her reward.
I praise You greatly for Her life
my life without her could not be,
show her Your favour without measure
for everything she's meant to me.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

She Had Wings

A tribute to a wonderful friend who was taken from us by cancer.

She Had Wings
 11-24-07  
Dave Stinnett
                         
SHE HAD WINGS,  SHE COULD LIFT US UP 
WHEN OUR WORLD SEEMED TOO HEAVY
WINGS OF LOVE, ALWAYS OPEN WIDE 
TO SOOTHE A WOUNDED SOUL
          
THOUGH SORROW FILLS OUR HEARTS, REJOICE THAT          
GOD HAS FILLED HIS PROMISE        
AND ANGELS HAVE A ROOM NEXT TO HIS THRONE                  
YOU SEE, SHE WAS NEVER OURS TO CALL OUR OWN

SHE HAD WINGS, AND NOW SHE’S FLYING HOME

THEY BELIEVED IN THE SAVIOR

The were the three Magi with mantels and beards, traveling
on strong camels as far as Bethlehem and having 
seen a wondrous star, they began their long journey 
by bringing precious gifts, but they warned Joseph and Mary 
of Herod's malicious intent...so they fled to Egypt
on a donkey that never complain of a sore hip! 


They believed in the Savior as Herod himself full of pride,
and being very wise, they never returned
to tell him what kind of child they had found! 
They brought their gifts and knelt at a child
whose fate as foretold was to die for us all,
and he gladly accepted them hearing His Father's call!


Not having heard from the Wise Men who had lied to Him, 
Herod sent his soldiers to kill all children under three: screams terrorized Bethlehem;
no, they weren't moved by their mother's painful cry
and shedding their innocent blood they revenged that lie!
O mothers of Bethlehem, Jesus knew that they were slaughtered because of Him!
O mothers of Bethlehem, you wept and moaned as they bled as a sacrificial lamb!


They believed in the Savior from what they had read,
and wanted to see for themselves the glorious event that Daniel spoken of:
the brightest star shining over Bethlehem as angels sang, 
announcing Christ's birth in a small town groping on a hill of citrus and clove!

HAIL TO COURAGEOUS PATRICK

" Hail to courageous Patrick! "
The Christian Irish loudly sang,
taking their chant to all Ireland...
and that made Milchu very sick!


In his veins ran pure blood of Roman nobility;
at that brutal era, Druidism was Ireland's religion,
and he, the follower of Christ, felt much contention...
but armed with determination Patrick fought it fiercely!  


" Hail to courageous Patrick!"
As a saint he never accepted defeat;
he was bread and water for the weak...
endless fear for the High Priest!


" Pagans, you shall not worship neither the Sun
nor idols, Christ is your true Lord! "
He preached in all villages ignoring any frown
from that warrior waving his sword!


Would he had never been captured
and sold into slavery, all Ireland wouldn't have known liberty;
his task was to tend sheep as David,
but choose to give his entire soul to God to wipe out idolatry!  


" Hail to courageous Patrick! "
Every man, woman and child shouted without being afraid;
they knew that God had sent this holy and kind man to them
to teach prayers of fervent faith!

ALTAR OF EARTH

The altar of earth;
Is a refrain to iniquity,
the diary to trespasses
transgressing the mission,
Of the lord blessing.

The altar of the earth;
the iniquity came to sin, 
and trespasses the saint.

The altar of the earth;
The unclean sit, under the foot
They disseminate uncleaniliness.

The altar of earth;
It an unholy gathering
It meant for the unbeliever
It the sacred heart of
The sinners
Be observant my brother
Make it a holy nation
God bless you!!!

ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS - REVISED

Onward Christian soldiers
As though we are at war
Let’s all fight for poetry
The art we all adore
Poetry is neglected
In the press or on TV
Let’s increase its coverage,
More publicity.

(Chorus)
Onward Christian Soldiers
Let’s all tell them the score
Poetry is wonderful
We all want some more.

Onwards then ye poets
Show them we’re not scared
Placards at the ready
With the rhyming word,
Let’s invade the mighty
To London march and then
Thrust aside those iron gates
And march on Number 10.

(Chorus)
Onward Christian Soldiers
Let’s all tell them the score
Poetry is wonderful
We all want some more.

Write to famous people
Ken Dodd or the Queen
To recite a limerick
On the TV screen
President Bush should help us
I hear he likes a rhyme
Everybody phone the Pope
He’s on VAT 69

(Chorus)
Onward Christian Soldiers
Let’s all tell them the score
Poetry is wonderful
We all want some more

Onwards then ye poets
Here ends our little chat
And I know that some will
Say: “Thank God for that.”
But carry on your marching
With your flags unfurled
Shouting out “more poetry”
Telling all the world.

(Chorus)
Onward Christian Soldiers
Let’s all tell them the score
Poetry is wonderful
We all want some more.

ONWARD CHRISTIAN COUNCILLORS

ONWARD CHRISTIAN COUNCILLORS
(To the tune of Onward Christian soldiers)


Onward Christian 
councillors meeting 
as the do,
They are round a
table for the privileged
few.
Talking serious matters,
as they do insist, 
Drinking cups of coffee,
and dunking their
biscuits.

(Chorus)
Onward Christian 
councillors, sitting oh
so grand,
They are talking 
business, and getting
cash in hand.

Fighting all the do-
gooders, like the
opposition,
Listen very carefully,
voice your own 
opinion,
Talking to each other,
as the day wears on,
Lighting up their pipes
and more, now they'll
have some fun!

(Chorus)
Onward Christian 
councillors, praying
as they do,
All they want are
answers - that is very
true.

Fighting against the
power - of people at
the top,
All they get are glares,
and to hold a strop!
Fighting now for justice,
for the guilty crew,
They will now all be
sacked - and get a 
pension too!  

(Chorus)
Onward Christian
councillors, they
have won the war,
Now they have some
fun - as they all go 
far.

Now they've won their
battle - for the right
to vote,
The PC crew queue up - 
just to have a gloat.
Out the door they all 
do go - looking back to 
dwell,
Now they all are sulking
now - inside a prison
cell.   

(Chorus)
Onward honest councillors,
they are now in power.
First they need a coffee - 
and an ice cold shower!

Onward then the heroes,
who have saved the day,
All are now in power - as
they shout hooray!
No more bad behaviour, 
that is banned for good,
Scoffing on their biscuits
now - where's the 
Christmas pud!

(Chorus)
Happy Christmas to all
of you - now let's sing
a song,
Oh the PC zealots are
banging on their gong!

Onward Blackpool Council,
they are now the best,
They have proved with
honours - they all passed 
the test.
Now the future looks so
bright - as the lights do
show - 
Forward now we all do
march - Blackpool you
do glow.

(Chorus)
Onward Blackpool's 
lights show - you can
shine so bright.
Now you are a treat to
see - and a sheer 
delight.
