As a peaceful wind pushed long and free
simple love had arrived in perfect time
with a song of jubilation rolling pure through the valley
a seed of love took flight in summer winds  free

simple love had arrived in perfect time
as I lay naked upon ancient rocks of graceful light
a seed of love took flight in summer winds free
Gods grace in delicate strokes touched me

as I lay naked upon ancient rocks of graceful light
with a song of jubilation rolling pure through the valley
Gods grace in delicate strokes touched me
as a peaceful wind pushed long and free

my dream

i dream of a place where i have not been
a place that would satisfy me deep within

i dream of a song i have not sung before 
a song that would open every freedom door

i dream of a better Southern Africa
united nations and generations would take us far

i dream of a tribe of kings and queens
a place where there's better food than maize and beans

i dream of smiles in every ebony face
of different colour feet running the same race

i dream of a big African dictionary
where AIDS and poverty are not part of the vocabulary

in my dream i hear God's voice deeply say
"dreams come true, and if you believe, this one may!"

The Song of the Christmas Snow

There is nothing with so much life as a Christmas snow
The crisp air is still as little dancing stars float to the earth
Strong old trees become burdened with drifts of white upon their bows
But seem honored to be dressed in such finery and appear almost to move
In fact, everything has come to life to watch the snowfall.
Then everything is quiet
There is a whisper in the air
It ripples through the trees
See the birds, they are the first to recognize the whisper
As the Masters of Chorus, the birds know it is a song
They sit as true musicians memorizing the lyrics and rhythm
So, the snow speaks, the voice is old, like it has sung this song many times
As the squirrels could tell you this is a lullaby, and they begin to search from their 
perches in the trees for the newborn
And life and love has never felt as strong as now
A horse in its pastures stomps his foot disturbed
Though he hears the song the birds do and the lullaby the squirrels hear, he, 
along with all of the worlds creatures, could swear he just heard a cry
The squirrels chatter with laughter, knowing they where right and the birds take 
up the snow-song to welcome the child they heard cry
And then they stop and the world is silent
The snow has stopped falling
The cry was only a memory from Christmas long past
The child, a child of time whose
 Voice comes with the Christmas snows,
To give every soul the chance to hear
The song of joy and love and beginning,
So it is never forgotten;
The song of the Christmas Snow

With Angels Waltz

"I have a dream, a song to sing"
About an earth seen from up in space
Like an Agate marble swirling green
How much longer will that be the case
When the broad picture viewed be defaced

"I have a dream, a song to sing"
About an earth that now has many faults
People here are fighting death to brothers bring
When our leaders to us say what is false
But I believe in angels with them I waltz

"I have a dream, a song to sing"
When I cross that river stream
On my way over I'll turn and see
An earth that has healed been redeemed
As I cross that stream_into my everlasting dream

Heaven's Song

There is a song amidst the heavens 
From days so long ago.
It's words are played amongst the stars
So soft and very slow.

They sing about the One above
Who made them all to shine.
They sing about His awesome deeds
He's done throughout all time

His works they are so very great
That even nature shows.
How there must be someone above
To make each thing to grow.
Now you can hear that song at night  
 If you are very still.
About the one that died for us
Upon that lonely hill

But He is not there anymore 
Nor will He ever be.
For  while He lives above the stars
He  also lives in me.

Will you ask Him in your life now
If you don't know Him yet.
He'll take away all sins decay
Erasing all sins debt.

There is a song a  midst the stars
From days so long ago
Each word declares the majesty
Of Jesus Christ I know.

Inspired by Psalm 19: 1-3

1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
2 Day unto day utters speech,
Night unto night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech or language
Where their voice is not heard.

Yesterday my life was full of sin
I had no peace within yesterday,
Yesterday I had no song to sing
I had no joy within yesterday.

But now the Lord has turned my life around
A new song, a new song I've found
He's given me that joy and peace within
He's taken away yesterdays sin.

He's taken away my sin
He can take away your sin.

A Land Bearing Green White Green

Which way leads to the 
land of green white 
Which way are we 
   A country the wicked 
bears the rulership, and 
the people sighing 
   A terrible thing sprouts 
beneath the sun: a 
pregnant woman 
delivering not.
Imps come to lime-light 
by snuffing air from the 
goose that laid the 
golden eggs.
The blind guiding the un
The weak suppressing 
the strong-a terrible 
Like the overthrow of the 
gods at Mt. Olympus by 
the Titans.
A country where also 
thieves appear as men of 
Land of green white 
green,which way?
A land where the 
enlightened ones are 
overshadowed and 
peanuts given to them.
The masses are dogs that 
eat the crumbs.
 Which way to go you 
Iliterates stand on 
podium of power 
bellowing orders as milk 
of sorrow known as 
dividends of democracy 
is passed around.
The machine of progress 
manned by the 
"There is better 
tomorrow" we hear.
Land of green white 
green,my country 
where rule of law walk 
beside anarchy.
The proles are sentenced 
to adversity,and there 
endured death-like trials.
Chai! Aru! People 
dancing on thorns 
whimpering as they 
  I see a new sun rising 
from the horizon,hope is 
rekindled as its rays 
grace on hopeless bodies.
 Look!! there soon be

We Welcome the Sun

We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 

A gleaming sunrise is seen in the distance – shedding relief 
Bursting forth like fireworks in the dark blue sky 
Hues of beauty and sincerity washes away our grief
The cheery clouds come together like lovers embracing one another

I’m never waving goodbye
It’s so surreal… and magnificent to see this scene unfold
You lift up the sparkling light… you’re an angel from up above
It’s so vibrant – the illuminated sight never dulled 
You bring us luck and excitement – 

You’re as pleasant as a dove 

We welcome the sun
We welcome the love
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
To omit the darkness 
To abolish the distress
To conceal the darkness
And reveal the halo
Hovering around your head
Burning away the dread 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun

An ocean of love is rubbing against my feet
Blankets of comfort embrace me now… our love will never dry
You treat us with reverence and I repeat – 
You’re as pleasant as a dove – taking wing from on high 
We welcome the sun in the morning 
We welcome the sun with open arms
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun 

A speedy breeze is whistling in my ears
Spiraling mad like a spinning top
Spiraling mad with all of its might 
You’re very intriguing – you casted away our fears 
Your gorgeous eyes
Project bright green and blue
You’re special in His sight 
He welcomes you
We welcome the hope 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
To lighten up your load 
And lead you to the mercy road
Where you and I will escape to paradise
To drive out all of the negativity
To conceal the wretched farewells
To reveal the light in goodbye 

We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun
We welcome you
With open arms

Black and White

You’ve maddened me to the core 
You singed me with your ferocious fire
We’re opposites… we’ll never integrate  
We can’t blend with each other…
Your love and I’m hate 
We’re contrary to each other…

So don’t even think about 
Getting us back together 
Because without a doubt, 
We don’t click with each other…

So let us go our own way…

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to be deleted from my mind…

I’m not the one that should pay the price
You act as if you’re an angel from heaven
But, you’re a fiend…a devil from hell...who needs your advice?
Could someone unchain me from this prison?

So let us prepare for that day…

Fear and bewilderment build inside of our minds
Taking over us…we’re wasting valuable time
Terror and wrath injects into our veins…time starts to unwind 
I’m regaining my glory…this moment feels so sublime  

You think you’re innocent?
I can sense your guilt…bleeding through you
Do you live to feed me anguish? 
Don’t deny it…you crafty demon…no wonder I feel blue

Let’s get ready for battle…
I’ll watch you decay…
Taste my fury and my agony 

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to be defeated…

I scream before nightfall
I close my eyes to kiss my demise
I want to disappear 
Scratch away my desolation
Wipe away my tears…
Spewing out of my eyes…like a waterfall
Tonight, there will be dismay
There will be suffering 
After sundown…
Failure and glory will expose like stars in the midnight sky
Who will earn the crown? 
No one knows in silent wars – who can reveal the light in goodbye
Why are we black and white?
Are you too afraid to know the reason why? 

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to suffer alone…

A New Day

I might sparkle in the night but I'm not the only star you might not see them in the sky it depends on where you are Am I the only light in your eyes that makes you smile when you cry if your favorite's what you say don't you blink it might fade away Only when we give everything we're truly ready for better things we invite ourselves off to drift the steam rises and our spirits lift Follow me, into sun sets be brave and strong with no regrets and when the sea takes the light we'll find a new day after the night there's still a new day after the night

You Alone

Look at you, you have found my heart
With love I stare into your eyes
With passion I devise
I can not part with you or can not stop the things I have started

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Look I walk by your side and I found my self crying
With your hands so soft with gentleness
With your smile so beautiful with carefulness
I do notice life with you without sighing

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Without a fear of losing you, you are in my visions
With beautiful roses by your side 
I love you more than twelve times
Without doubt I do love you, I care for you and you alone

So do not walk away 
Please lets talk about things anyway
With feelings of letting you go is make me ache in the heart
Do not stop believing my passion has fallen apart

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Look I want us to grow old with each other through years of journeys
With hope of sharing life of fulfillment that gives us memories
With this I hope to give all of my faith and I hope it is not to late
I Look into your eyes with such full life because you have been my life date

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

And you alone

So I raise my hands to embrace you

you alone

Song Cry

A song of a blind bird,
stale and cry.
hymn of a song in hormony to fly by,
is sure to set  feet.

Note by dexter fold arms to sheeps,
foil and cope,
with the mild do throttles to thirst,

like symantec of dirtection,
as the heaven snips to the moon rites of memories,
learning time motion of tears,
my heart flirts with literature ,
like hope to a good well.

note of notice,
just luck of verbal communication,
to conscience of intelligence of just words,
and tone turn to lust,
and lust turn to light moods,
where did i leave my capitavite?
in this room.

like a flower to dawn,
we rise together, 
morning to sweep of shore,
like a pastor store in barrels, 
for the fruit of yesterday to pour,
for todays taste ,
of years to past,
of course it was a good year.

like tinkle bell to a warm  berry,
my wish is sit next to you.
to reach is to bring towards,
 to be patient is to remain of stone.

i'm pasting my self with this meal.
to bring friendship to a new conclusion.
will you sit eat with me and bring in the New Year.
or will be know as our anniversary a reason to write.
I mean a reason to continue to write was left to be written!!!

Song of Life

In a murmur of souls from time unknown.
So soft yet so strong it shook the ground beneath me.
I stopped to see what the sound was they were making?
The sound started to have rhythm. 
Words started to come out of the murmuring.
Wave after wave of what started out as noise, 
soon turned into soothing words of melodious understandable joy.
I thought to myself, I know this and I started to join in.
Rivers of blood have flowed before us,
To find us here today.
Our King has brought before us,
This wonderful glorious day.
We will sing it from the mountains,
Glory be You.
Yes we will sing it from the mountains,
Our King has brought us through.
Yes we will sing it from the mountains,
Christ Jesus brought us through.
Yes we will sing it from the mountains.

The crowd started to slowly separate and move away from me,
As they started to leave I could here them in the distance.
(Yes we will sing it from the mountains)
I was all alone standing there with the song of life still ringing in my mind.
Then I heard a soft but strong voice say,
Would you like to join us? 
I cried out, yes Jesus! 
Please; fill me, let me know your way.
I was instantly back in the middle of the friendship singing.

Salvation he has shown us,
On This wonderful glorious day.
Yes we will sing it from the mountains,
Christ Jesus is the way.
Yes we will sing it from the mountains,
For now and ever more.
Yes we will sing it from the mountains,
Christ will always be our savior.

By: IzaDonna

You were such a young boy
With a tragic past
I know it still haunts you
Feeling like the pain will always last
Just remember, Just remember
I'm here for you
Keep your strength up
And always stay true

So make me a promise
A promise that you'll keep
Better your life
Before your into deep
I'll stick with you
Even when I'm gone
Watching from heaven
As you carry on
That's my promise

I know its a struggle
Fighting the demons of your past
Don't worry brother
I'll pick u up when ur falling fast
And always in my eyes
No matter what you do
I'll always have you back
No matter the decision you choose


So when you feel
Like you wanna give in
Keep your head up
Remember where u've been
Find your inner strength
And moving toward
What you wanna achieve
Always push forward

Words of Life

Drowning in the pool of anguish…oh…oh…
I’m venturing into the forest…and I want to hear the words seep out 
Release these aching sorrows…I worry my soul’s drying out…
like a drought…
Drain out the fluids from my heart
It’s gouging me…bruising me to the core…

Embrace the light…embrace the midnight sky…
You fall in my arms – you die so warm
Shed me more sun to lift up my spirits
From the…underground…and release me – I’m breathless
I’m drowning in doubt…ooh… oh… 

Remember me…I’m falling…into my swirling fate…hanging on the roots 
Strangling my heart…distorting in my veins… I’m bleeding so softly – cut out the wood…
Splintering me…I’m shattering… and I’m falling in the abyss
Bring me more radiance from my candle light
Warp me up in bliss…don’t let the midnight sky…don’t take away my delight
From the…ocean…and save me—save me…oh… oh…  I’m failing 


I’m drowning in regret…ooh..oh…
Hit the bull’s eye in my heart…embrace the light
And don’t leave me hanging in the abyss…hand me a kite!
Save me before I fall apart…shut out the night
And don’t let the dusk escape us…

I must confess…
I must confess…
I hate to see you abandon the light…
But I’m not the one to save you from the night


Splintering lies fill your heart 
I want to kiss it goodbye…
But you’ve mastered it like a piece of art
I want to kiss the abyss and die…
Dry… I wanna touch the sky with my whole soul
But I’m failing and the end of time has taken its toll
Tainted sorrow…swims around me…I dwell where the waters depart
But the anguish still swarms in my heart…
I’m failing…my heart stops beating
And my desires are fleeting
From my grasp
And the monsters laugh at me…as I fall… 


Embrace the midnight sky…catch me…catch me…
As I fall in death’s arms…I die so cold
And your heart is made of gold

Untangle the darkness & take away the nightmares 
Answer our prayers & block out the night 
Erase the heartaches & wipe away our tears
Unravel Your words of life & delight

An Ode to LIFE Part 1

An Ode To LIFE

As I lay my head down and start to fall asleep I see myself being carried off to a place and time the place of our Lords birth in Bethlehem of Judea

As in the Bible tells the story of His life and how he lived and died in that human seance and rose on the day He told of

I do not remember being here but I remember the story I was taught so many years ago

As I walk through the streets of Bethlehem I see each scene  and hear  every word as I am learning the story they telling is true

The writer writes of a jealous King  and his way of dealing with his people and of Mary and Joseph who came to Bethlehem to have a child

The story tells of the three wise men  who saw a star in the north and heard of a child  who was born to be the King of the Jews  and come to see and bring Him gifts 

An  angel from the Heavens above came to Mary and Joseph in a dream and told them they had to leave Bethlehem or King Herod would have their son killed 

So they left Bethlehem and went to Egypt and there they lived until King Herod no longer ruled

As I follow along in my dream I see each scene  and hear  every word as I am puzzled by the fact I understand each

I don’t understand why I’m going through this time but I know I must continue on this journey 

As I am pulling through a time where I reach the place of Jesus’ in  Nazareth of Galilee

As I watched Him grow and work in His father's shop I could see the thing in Him that were with me

As I walk along the streets and look around I hear the people talk of a child that speaks of wondrous love that’s all forgiving and of a Father in Heaven that’s loving and true.

Song Within Me

Tell me, tell me is it true that a song lives deep within you
In your heart, your soul screaming to come out
Banging on the door, let me in, let me learn, let me love the
one who created all

I want to learn about my God
about his love for you 
his love for me
about his mercy and grace
I want to see his face on the day of days

oh, I know that it is  true
I know there's a song bagging to be free
living within me. 
I want to sing his praises  
I want to sing his name so all may know Jesus. God of Gods, King of Kings shine 
your love, your light, your grace upon me.

God the father, you sent only son to help us find way back to your loving grace 
How beautiful your way, guiding us taday 
Loving us the the way you do

Oh, how I long to know you, to see your holy face, your love and grace for the 
children you create how merciful your ways

Tell me, tell me is it true that a song lives deep within you
In your heart, your soul screaming to come out
Banging on the door, let me in, let me learn, let me love the
one who created all

Tears of a Little girl

Tears of a little girl
that's so young, that's in her childhood, 
make a golden well, make a golden well,
but she doesn't realize
her tears sing a song so beautiful.
They sing a song of treasure,
they sing a song so wonderful,
they sing to worship God,
but she doesn't realize
she has a gift to sing.
She mustn't sing for anything
she must sing for the King,
but she doesn't realize,
she can sing so goldenly, (so as a golden well)

Chirpin Tom

Chirpin Tom was quite a feller
He was always straight and true
He could sing a song and make the cowboys moo.
No, he wasn't much for fightin'
And his gun was seized with rust
But when crossed there had been bodies in the dust.

No, old Chirpin wasn't perfect
But he'd sing the cows to sleep
He could sing so good the flies would up and weep.
Chirpin's horse was Double Thunder
He was truly quite a ride
He would even stand beside a post untied.

So when Tom had finished singin'
He would mount and ride away
Down the trail until he found a place to stay;
Then he'd do some cowboy singin'
And he'd pray a cowboy prayer
And he'd sleep with all the cattle round him there.

Then when Tom would stay no longer
He would turn his horse's tail
And he'd travel down the hot and dusty trail,
Till he found a bunch of cowboys
Cookin' up some cowboy stew
Then he'd say, "Hey boys, how 'bout a song or two?"

Welcome to the Planet

Welcome to the planet
Wake me when it’s over
The dreamer’s always tempted
To come around and show her

And I just keep wastin my time
On girls that won’t love, me, like their wine
And it’s just too easy to blame
The rock and the system for causing my pain
And I just want you to know that I’m through
With being alone, when I’m with you 
And when you mask the truth with your lies
It just won’t get any better for the rest of your guys

And when you fall asleep
The night covers your tears
And the darkness sees you weeping
Cause your conscious can’t be cleared
This year you’re feeling colder
Your heart’s a little older
You haven’t found your soul mate
And now you think you’re too late

But one look inside of my eyes
Gives you the hope that there’s a guy
Who can make you feel happy and sad
And it’ll be worth it to feel that again

Sing a sad song when your face is long,
Sing for the birds sitting in the birches up high.
Sing a sad song when your face is long
sing a sad song for the sea.
Because you know when you are down
and you shouldn't really frown
no, for that brings the sad in everyone, you see?

Sing a song when you are alone,
sing a song to the sky.
When you project out your voice
you bring your faith in rejoice.
It comes from the soul, it comes from within.
So don't sit aroud being silent in solitude,
no get up on your feet and sing another song again.
Sing sing sing,
sing a song again.

Sing with the wind, sing with the crowd
sing for the people who listen.
Sing for the town, sing for all joy
sing for yourself and for each girl and boy

Quit My Job, Smashed My Car

Quit my job, smashed my car
My back does throb, need to learn guitar

So I can make, a silly song
And I can sing, it all day long
About how, my God is strong
So that even now, nothing’s wrong

Even though, I quit my job
smashed my car, my back does throb

Life is hard, but I’ve got God
So I won’t let any thought
Any worry or fear
Convince me you’re not near

Even when, I quit my job,
Smashed my car, my back does throb
Life is hard, but I won’t sob
I need to learn guitar

My Guardian Dear

When I was young I thought I knew 
How to talk and speak with you 
But time has put a wedge between
My angel, conscience, inner being.
I spoke to you , I spoke to you

The one who told me right from wrong,
Comforted me all day long. 
Helped me choose which way to go,
When undecided, I didn't know.
I spoke to you. I spoke to you.

Some call you Gabriel, 
My Guardian Angel, I did tell,
My hopes,my fears,my dreams to be,
Untold to others was free with thee.
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

Comfortable, believing that you were there,
To guide me through every prayer.
You had a name I knew it then,
I said it time and time again.
I spoke to you, I spoke to you 

I was a child of seven or eight,
I knew when called I need not wait
For you my angel to appear 
To clear my conscience and my fear
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

The older I grew, less time was spent
Talking to you,trying to vent
Friends became closer to me,
I shared more with them and left you be
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

Now as I'm in the prime of life
Mother to my son, no longer a wife,
I wonder late at night if you
Will answer my questions like you used to do
I spoke to you, I spoke to you

Afraid to test, afraid to fail,
Wanting and hoping you did not bail 
Praying that your still at my side
To light, to guard,to rule and guide. 
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

My faith has told me you are here.
Watching me and always near.
My pride, my walls have come down
Last night,I spoke with no one around.
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

My Guardian Angel you were there
You listened and helped with every prayer,
My hopeless feelings lonely, just me
Ended last night when you returned to me
I spoke to you, I spoke to you
I"ll speak to you, yes speak with you.

The Master Of The Rhyme

The Master Of The Rhyme
This was inspired by comments 
made to me , by Great Poets
Peter Duggan and Olive Guillermo
And sung to the tune 
Phantom Of The Opera's 
"Music of The Night"   by Andrew LLoyd Webber 

Words that rhyme well--- serve to show my passion
Searching for the--- style that suits my fashion
Everything I see--- Is a poem meant for me
And I write it though it seems to be sublime 
I truly am the master of the rhyme

While I’m sleeping--- in my mind come creeping
Filled with laughter--- mystery and weeping
Like an artist with his brush---I am filled with such a rush
And it paints a picture deep inside my mind
I wonder if I’m Master of the rhyme

Do you know who’s the Master of all known words
Do you know when he comes or where he goes
As He writes with my hands and through my soul
Whether it be a rhyme or it be prose 

Written words--- start forming innuendoes  
Join and bond--- then rise like a crescendo 
When I awake I find--- this happens every time
I am just the name that must be signed
For I am not the Master of the rhyme

As I sit here staring at the empty page
He whispers in my ear again
I don’t know where the poem’s going to go 
But, when I start the words begin to flow

Is It God, and is He on the level
Cursing me, as If I were the devil
Cause once I start to rhyme---the words begin to chime
Like a bell--- keeps ringing in my mine
He truly is the Master of the Rhyme

He alone holds the blessing---I make mine
For I am just a servant of the Rhyme

To A Quiet Place

Autumn leaves have lost their color now
Winter's cold has chilled all things
Come away my love, He calls to me
Come to me and learn before this spring

My Spirit longs for more time with Him
While gray clouds bring somber days
He calls to me, come away my love
To a quiet place to set ablaze

A heart that aches from life's hurtful times.
In my distress he echoes
Come away my love; He calls to me
To read His word, give Him all my throes.

An apple tree among the wood's trees
Is my special love; each day
He calls to me, come away my love
How I long to go and with Him stay..

Don't you worry bout my soul

Don't you worry bout my soul
Til you've been down all my lonely roads
And gauged the weight of my full load 
Don't you worry bout my soul
I see you on the tv conning, talking squawking walking like you really care about me and my kind
You cry your tears like a  crocodile  empty eyes phony smile,
To me I plainly see you're clearly blind 
So don't you worry bout my kind . . .
I see everything just fine
You're busy yelling and a tellin me all the things you think you can see, going on in this ol world you think ain't right
Get the beam on out of your own eye, til you've listened to the children cry, hungry and tormented in the night 
Don't you worry bout my eyes . . .
I'm seeing everything just fine
Don't you worry bout my ears
Cause you've been deaf for many years
I don't need some deaf man tellin me what I should hear or how to be, when he is only playing on my fears
So don't you worry bout my ears . . .
I hear your deafness loud and clear
Don't you worry bout my mind
Though it gets misplaced from time to time
But I think I know what courage means, how heartache feels, when freedom rings
And I know that I am running out of time
So don't you worry bout my mind . . .
I think I'll get along just fine
Don't you worry bout my soul
Cause I met the Master long ago
And the one you portray Him to be
Is not the same One known to me
The One Who made me free so long ago
So don't you worry bout my soul.
Mathew 15:14

Musical Tracks

Musical Tracks A train speeds by with wheels sparking Squeals against the track has the dogs barking Shaking floor announces the presence of its passing Conversations suffer from the train's harassing Loose shutters slap against the house walls A picture falls to the floor down the hall Winds find gaps whistling through House sings a tune from a coal miners crew Rustling leaves from an old oak tree and A tapping trellis beats with a plea Sounding objects create a musical show Playing in unison inside a poetic prose The chatter within has a cadence effect When all is combined a generational song reflects A song grew from the process of growing I can hear the chorus while it is softly flowing Families filled the house With their spiritual essence Each generation saturated their heritage with His presence Their surrounding's beat with a faithful pulse Traditions turned their live's into a historical waltz Carole Cookie Arnold 2010

Bird Song

The birds sing a song

On a tree that is very high

Music fill the air

Details | Lyric | |

Don't Doubt I Love You

You can doubt the sun will rise
Or that the skies are ever blue.
You can doubt an eagle flies
Or that truths are ever true.
You can doubt everything you see
Within your field of view.
But don’t you ever doubt…
Never doubt that I love you

You can doubt the change of seasons
Or that stars will always shine.
You can doubt both faith and reason,
And that elements combine.
You can doubt the things I say
And the things you see me do.
But don’t you ever doubt…
Never doubt that I love you

No, do not ever doubt.
No, do not ever doubt.
No, do not ever doubt I love you.

Drifting Mainly

You belong to me mate 	 ( Intro )
And that be that!
Get on board
And grab your hat!

The ship was aghast at its new passenger	( Verse )
Like disdain for the lives that they now left behind,
Newcomers were scarce 
And they never would last
But I held up my chin nice and high.

The bloke who took me screamed	( Pre-chorus )
“Mop up the deck we’ve got things to do!” 
But I said sir, 
I’m just a boy and don’t know what’s to do.

And he said		( Chorus )
“Drifting mainly
Sailin the shores
Taking what’s mine 
And leaving what’s yours
Cause you know, we ain’t dead yet.”

Taking the seas for more than eight moons
We found islands and loot
That was bigger than most.
The taste of sea air 
With its wind in my hair
Took me away to this new life I lead.

After mopping the deck 
He grabbed my hand and screamed
 “Steer this ship boy!”
But I said sir,
I’m just a lad and don’t know where to go.

So the crew yelled	( Chorus )
“Drifting mainly
Sailin the shore
Taking what’s mine 
And leaving what’s yours
Cause you know, we ain’t dead yet.”

Surprising to me 
Was my unshaven face
The captain looked on 
And smiled with grace,
We stopped at a place 
Where the women were loose and didn’t mind
If we took a peak.

He said “Now you’re a man so let’s get on that boat,
We got places to be and some people to rope,
So grab that sword and drop that mop
Cause you’re no longer a boy in my eyes.”

I practiced the duel with the men in the crew
The captain took eye to my devilish pride,
And he took me aside and said 
 “Even in death I’m gonna miss you boy 
But don’t let it strike you 
Or kill your spirits
Cause even time can beat out the Grim.”

Then in the darkness came fire and screams,
Our vessel had stopped after fourteen years,
The crew fought hard and beat most of the men
But now, my Captain was dead.

We took the new ship watching ours sink deep
Saying goodbye to our drowning escape,
The crew turned towards me and asked
“What do we do?” and I smiled,
And they did to.

And we yelled    ( Chorus )
“Drifting mainly
Sailin the shores
Takin what’s mine
And leaving what’s yours
Cause you know, we ain’t dead yet.”

The Song Of David

Enlighten days have past
He comes excel in all, so he thinks
"I am greater than man,
I know what ignorant man does not.
Come to me for knowledge unsurpassed!".
He points to the blue heaven,
"Where is thy wisdom? For I know all.
Where is thy command? That makes the ground shake
And brings forth water that lives?"

At the great gatherings,
He flocks the shepherds, blind, mute and deaf  
He answers to the multitude of questions
He asked the shepherds, "but what are thy questions?",
“I know not what do ask a man of your wisdom, but what  is a dream?
What is life?” asked the young herdsman.
"I know not what you speak of", said the Man.
"I only know what i can feel, touch and see"

"A dream is dream that passes us by, like gentle breeze of fresh spring.
Life holds all things mystery and doubts.
Shepherd knows to flock, not life or dreams".
"The shepherds are those who are humble, noble one", said the herdsman
"The blind cannot see, the mute cannot speak and the deaf cannot hear".
"Who are you preaching to? Silent and amaze, the man looks on.  

"If the blind could see you, 
They would say, 'look here is the man who tried to humble the blind
For they can see what others cannot,
If the mute could speak, they would humble you!
And if the deaf could hear they would shamed your wisdom".
"Was I a fool?" said the Man "or are you not that young herdsman?
Who knows nothing of life and passes his days tending the sheep's?
What could you learn from such simpleton life?"

"Life I live is simple indeed, 
No one knows that the shepherds are those who protects the weak"
"Nature is a friend of the shepherd; we sing the song of David
And rubs the olive oil to our young sheep, to keep away the flies".
Insulted, the man's fury turns over to the young herdsman
"Nature? Protect the weak? The song of David? Flies?
How can nature befriend a lonely shepherd? Protect who?
Song of David the Shepherd who became the king? 
What flies would harm the young flocks?"

The young herdsman smiled at the frown face of the man,
Left without a word
The blind, the mute and deaf ignored the man.
An unyielding shame kept the man humbled
He wonders why the young herdsman smiled about.
He came about a bridge and crossed the rocky roads
On the hill top he stood 
And saw the young herdsman singing the Song of David.

I have always liked music from a early start
music often plays deep with in my heart
as I think of God and the family and friends he did bring
I just feel  so much Love and my heart starts to sing
I feel   my heart dancing with every beat
when I think of my blessings and how I was made unique
the Lord has given me so many things
and music is just one key
but his Love is the greatest thing ever given to me
so dear Lord as I meditate upon you
there is a  song in my heart making it dance with joy too
the rhythm flows through my being and flows  through my veins
and my heart will sing unto you a Love song
time and time again....

my heart sings and dances with glee
 for I love the Lord and he Loves me.

sing unto the Lord a new  song   for his unfailing love endures forevr Amen.

Life's Complexity

Look deep within the light my love
My gentle caring sleep
the song of nature drifts along
at times the wind is steep and strong

The heart a hollow empty song
the drain on life complete
but then from out of emptyness 
the song of love grows strong

The energy returning
you dance upon your feet
the cuddles that you're yearning
returned you are complete 

my mind delves into darkness
it fights with dreams and scheemes
it struggles with the truth of life
I need to know whats real

I need to know the truth of life
to know whats really real
we study then the body 
the life of man complete

look to see the beauty 
complexity so sweet
interwoven nature 
our thoughts of glowing flame

We study terminology
we study anthropology
we study then biology
with thoughts that do compete

In truth this sweet compexity 
holds answers over time
who did design the human brain
who did design the mind

The arguments from science
I then do not believe
It simply was by accident
we came to be conceived

the body's so complex my friend
I think they self deceive
I do believe in science
the study of our life

I do believe the bible
that god created life
I do not see your problem
I do not see your strife

It say's that god created man
it does not tell you how
Could evolution be my friend
the tool that god made to make man

A Fallen Sparrow

For only a penny you can buy two sparrows, yet not one sparrow falls to the ground without your Father's consent. (Matthew 10: 29)

I was a little sparrow
Perched on a little ledge
I warbled out my heart
My love song in a pledge

You looked out of the window
And you saw me on my perch
The song didn't suit your fancy
For an arrow you made a search

I kept up my happy song
And little did I know
That sweet look on your face
Was to be my fatal blow

You spoke kind words to me
I was beguiled by your smile
I preened my little features
Danced for you all the while

You found a big enough stone
That would knock me to the ground
And before I knew what happened
There was an explosion of sound

The world around me was spinning
Trees and grass and then sky
I fell down to the ground
I didn't know how or why

My little wing was broken
I lay there throbbing with pain
I looked up at the darkening sky
As felt the first drops of rain

A little boy came running
Picked up my shivering form
He rushed me into the house
Before the darkening storm

His dear Mama bandaged me
Put me in the softest bed
Dripped water into my beak
Gently caressed my feathery head

That night I stopped to wonder
At the hate that you had shown
All I had done was sing my song
Freedom was all I had known

I knew my little wing
Would probably never mend
I’d be bound to the ground
My prayers to the skies I’d send

From one thing I gained comfort
As I saw my rescuer sleep
My Heavenly Father had seen all
And His promise he did keep

I was safe and sound and healing
Would live to see another day
But when you meet God the Father
I wonder what you’ll have to say.

Exist in Dreams

A dream that dances in waves, and mirrors all you do
So you dance, and hope that some day the song will come from you
This dream is all that exists, and all you’ve ever known
The song is picking up speed, so it’s follow or fail alone

A flame that flickers in sync with the shadows by your side
The rain puts out the light, and causes you to hide
This nightmare is all that exists, and all you’ve ever known
But this song still hasn’t stopped, and so you dance alone

You cherish sand on the banks of a path winding through a storm
This desert trail is all that you see; too blinding to look beyond
This path is all that exists, and the only way to go
Holding close the sand as you sing, just so you’re not alone

The sand is part of the storm that makes you close your eyes
But now the wind starts to slow, and the scenery makes you cry
This life is all that exists, and the only way to go
The sand falls through your hands, and you carry on alone

A love that blooms into being beneath the darkest skies
Is a life that will venture out despite the lonely nights
So scared, but so unafraid to find what you need to be
Despite the fear that prevails, and tells you what to see

The flames steady and still, and a shadow kneeling down
The rain cleansing your heart as all your fears drown
The sand creating a path, and shielding you from pain
And now, with the wind at your back, you remember why you came

To dream a light shining out for all the world to see
To be more than you think, and beyond all that will be
To create a desire to be the creators of our dreams
To become the mirror of self, and reflect our unity

Favorite Song Lyrics


I love music from Hank Williams, Sr. to Beethoven
Their sounds deep inside my heart are interwoven

But nothing else can take the place 
Of the words found in “Amazing Grace”

The phrase, “to save a wretch like me”
Remind me of God's love, you see

“Who once was lost but now am found”
Show me His blessings that abound

It set me free from turmoil and strife
And gave new meaning to my miserable life

Become familiar with its soulful words
No greater message can e'er be heard

I urge you to learn the entire song
If you do, my friend, you can't go wrong

You'll see for yourself why I say to you 
Let this become your favorite song too

Thoughts of A Song Writer

From my thoughts on the paper in which it lies, 
My everlasting passion is inked as it dries.
The way I feel inside, you might want to spy,
But if you pry, how will my lyrics surprise?
A song for thought will only leave a thought.
May sound difficult, but that’s just how I talk.
I was lost, but I found me.
Dreaming and believing that writing was my key.
The way it flows and the way that it goes pumps me to speak
the very thoughts that many minds chose to keep.
Many rocks I’ve kicked and many decisions I’ve made.
Any wrongs I take the blame.
Tic-tac-toe is only a game.
I plagiarize your eyes with the notes that I’ve taken,
A high note here and a low note there-
You’d swear I’m in your head when my song hits your ear.
Pain recognizes pain
And I’ve have my share of bandages.
 My vibes from life heals the permanent damages.
Thoughts of a Songwriter,
Reaches farther beyond the beat,
Over the lyrics on the sheet,
Not only is it about the speech,
 But more of what the message seeks.
True enough a theme is touched and a heart is rushed.
With the mind-throbbing picture disappearing 
Through the ink of my pen and revealed through your lens,
You can’t hear me, but do you feel me?
I cherish my talent and where it could possibly sweep me.
My doubts and my worries are beneath me.
I love for brighter days and pray for more things to pave.
Call my life my number because its infinite.
Thoughts of a Songwriter,
My mentality drips it.

I know too well, we have to see
Some times in life that shouldn't be.
But through it all, in all I do,
Everything I ever do, I'll always do it for you.

Our song may not tell everything
About the hurt that time can bring.
But through each pain we're going through,
Every song I ever sing, I'll always sing it for you..

This much I promise you.
I'll always have this love for you.
Every day in every way
This much--this much I promise you.

This much I promise you.
I'll always share this love with you.
Every day in every way
This much--this much I promise you.

Sometimes we go without a prayer
Because we just don't see one there.
But God is there, in all we do.
Everytime I ever pray, I'll pray a little for you.

I know sometimes we have to cry.
Because of love, I don't know why.
But through each tear I'm going through
Every time I ever cry, I'll cry a little for you. 

Everything I ever do, I'll always do it for you.
Everything I ever do, I'll always do it for you.
 This much I promise you.

Divine Song

Sing a song,
To woo you all night long.

The singer enrapturing and beautiful,
Sending her love for song.

To her audience,
Man to adore and so much more.

The serpent in the garden of Eden,
Temptation beyond compare.

Carefully sending her tonic soh fah,
Disguised as a contemporary song.

All night long the song is heard, 
Like the beautiful nightingale and song bird.

Caressing  the wind like a warm summer breeze,
God's love disguised yet heard, a divinity.

Demon in the Night

I stand brave at might within my room 
Without a single sight of fear 
As thunder roars from outside 
My heart as pure as gold 
This ugly bloody demon came upon me 
Face so gruesome yet posed expression without a soul to take 
Here in a home of faith that lingers in 
Thou demon in the night you can not have my heart nor soul and steal it within this night 
As the demon spoke to me in tounges 
I could not understand words that's been spoken 
And as I pray on my knees with my merry roseary beds in palm 
I wished for this demon to banish forever from my sight
And never again to appear to me within thee night 
That demon in the night can harm me no more

Amazing Grace

Who at my Door is Standing
Softly and Tenderly, Day by Day
Love Divine, All Loves Excelling
Teach Me, O Lord, I Pray

Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior

Open My Eyes that I May See

Go, Tell It On the Mountain

In Times Like These
Christ Receiveth Sinful Men

I've Got Peace Like a River
My Lord Is Near Me All the Time
Just When I Need Him Most
I An His, and He Is Mine

It Is Well with My Soul
There's a Glad new Song
Christ the Lord Is Risen Today
One Day, Lord, I'm Coming Home

Here's a little poem God wrote;
You might want to learn it quote for quote;
Don't worry, be happy.
My child cast your cares upon Me.
Get rid of all the anxiety;
Don't worry, be happy.
Sometimes life gets a little deep,
Give it to Me, I neither slumber nor sleep.
Don't worry, be happy.
If you can't sleep 'cause stuff is on your mind;
Get in My Word and you will find,
Don't worry, be happy.
Think on things just and on things pure,
And you will find that this is the cure.
Don't worry, be happy.
There is not anything that I can't solve.
So please let Me be involved.
Don't worry, be happy.
Ask Me, ask Me, pray, communicate,
Don't be a hater, participate.
Don't worry, be happy.
So if you've got something that's just too hard,
Trust Me, trust Me, I AM GOD!!
Don't worry, be happy.

Our song.

My song is the joy of life
It’s knocks and blows its
Hopes of joy its endless love,
its constant strife.

His song is the cause of woe
The meanest word, the theft of choice.
The downward fall, a silent scream
A harsh cold voice. No quid pro quo.	

My song is the hope of more
The bright idea. The sunshine dawn
A joyful dance a marching on,
A skipping child. A though so pure

Our song could be a joining mind
A chance off hope a link of thought
No more opposed, a shared desire
A ray of hope a new mankind

Just My Song

I'm running across a tightrope of strings...
Making music with steps to the words I sing...
Each footprint a different sound, some happy
some sad...
But together they play a song to all the things
I've held and had...
It's a musical composition that doesn't miss a note...
A diary of me in song that resonates of love and hope...

Cosmopolitan Dream

I contemplate the sea…   
 Behold the horses of dreams   
Running over the waves   
Like heavenly gleams,   
And angelic sparrows carrying the sun   
With their silver beaks   
Singing in divine joy   
The song of love and freedom,   
The song of life…   
I sail with overwhelming joy,   
With my passion,   
My dreams,   
My poesy,   
Looking at the sky   
Searching for the face of my one and only…   
I travel alone like the sea   
No passport   
No identity   
No borders   
No check points   
Leaving behind   
My home   
My language   
My sect     
My skin color   
My worries   
My fears   
My mother's face   
And the sad song…   
I wake up with the sounds of aircrafts, tanks, guns,   
Then I know that I was dreaming…!

Your touch I feel subsiding 
Your presence no longer near. 
Tell me why the one I love 
So faint I cannot hear.

Your silence is so deafening 
I strive to hear your voice. 
The once delightful melody 
Is now a silent noise.

I long to hear your laughter. 
Your song I grieve today. 
The loving sound of guidance 
Not here, but gone away.

My loneliness consumes me. 
Repose within is spent. 
Until your voice I hear again 
My withered heart laments

What have I done to lose you? 
Where in our love did fall? 
I must have caused between us 
Transgressions after all.

I heeded not your warning 
With sin you cannot live. 
Repentance is my only hope 
Will you, with love, forgive?

I knew your love unblemished 
No spot with you reside. 
But loneliness now bruises 
My heart, with sin I hide.

I must regain your presence 
Confess my hidden sin. 
Wash clean my heart with love's refrain 
And bring your song back in.

How Can I Not

How can I not praise my God
For all the things He's done
He broke the chains that once bound me
And now new life's begun.

How can I not praise my God
He is so very good
I stand complete in Him today
Washes in His precious blood.

How can I not praise my God
For He is my Lord and King
He's put a song within my heart
And unto Him I sing.

How can I not praise my God
For He is my righteousness
He's forgiven me of all my sin
And I am truly blessed.

How can I not praise my God
For all glory belongs to Him
He left His throne in Heaven
To die for all my sin.

And so I'll praise my God today
In song and poetry
And declare today He reigns on high
Worthy of praise is He.

Looking back
It is beauty that is carved into
Every moment of our lives
Every moment of our near deaths,
Every moment of our death.

A song reached out to me
In my winter bed,
A simple song of simple love.
Transcending me back eight years
Into that lonely street where I stood
Looking down at every one.
Proud and haughty.
An absolute sense of right.
Self destructive.
Yet like the Phoenix, capable of
Raising one up towards the truth.

It was the brittle line between life and death
I saw it that night.
When my mind split into two.
When time halted.
When death kissed me in.
And then wonder of wonders,
I saw the three dimensions of the 
Most beautiful face on earth,
My angel.
I was over joyed.

In the busy consultation room
Patient after patient buzzing in.
All seem to fragment in front of me.
The drama called life ran figments
I connected with their woes and miseries,
I knew they will all vanish.
I smiled an all knowing smile.
They smiled back half cured of their ailments.
I smiled at Maya.
I couldn’t help smiling.

The people who fought for me,
They made me who I am today.
People who left and who still pray for me,
People far off who have given me a hundred reasons to smile,
People who have bruised and battered me and moulded me into who I am.
Why did God send them to me?
Was it not a mirror He sent through all of them,
A mirror into which I had to see,
With my mind open.

In a painting, Xibalba radiates with such beauty
Such absolute glow and fire,
Transporting me to the after life.

The paradise called peace.
Where all goodness lives and perishes not for eternity.
There I see myself, sitting, meditating,
Looking up.
On the glory that was life,
On the glory that was death,
On the glory of the One.

When He Died For You and Me-.. Were You There?

Sometimes it causes me to tremble
When I remember that country preacher
Telling the story of Jesus
Being crucified when I was little
I felt bad that He did nothing wrong.

And in college,
 I learned this song 
A Negro Spiritual
Were you there?
When singing this song 
It caused my voice teachers’
Body to tremble 
As the vibrato spinned
As the words sprang out
About the story once heard
Of how my savior died,
And how he on was lied. 

And now that I’m older
And I’ve gained knowledge
And now grown
And I’m on my own
With no one but the
 Lord to depend on

The story means more to me
Than when I was that little girl
Without a care in the world 
When that country preacher
Told it about how the nails
Pierced him far from gently
How the crown of thorns 
Was crushed blood vessels
In his head.

How he knew he had
To face the sinful world
Just like how I know
I have to face it because
God is calling me 
To assist in ministry

I want to be more like Jesus
Everyday and in every way.
It deeply convicts me
To see on movies
And to visualize in my mind
What He did at Calvary
That day at any given time
It causes me to tremble
And tears to fall.

I know in my heart 
I have no other choice 
Than to accept His call
And give my all and all
To gain victory for His people
Because He died for it 

It doesn’t matter
If you were there when he died
He just wants you
To know that He did
And all you have to do 
Is come to Him like a little kid
And he will do the rest
This is what He does best.

I hope that it causes you to tremble
Whether or not we resemble
Each other in Him we are all
Sisters and brothers
Were you there, then?
It doesn’t matter
Be here now
He died and rose on the third day
For those who were then
And now trembling in sin.

Spirit Song

It is beyond closed eyes I see
an alien to me, a fellow consciousness
who trembles in his heart, 
a partner of my soul I never knew,
whose constancy is certain 
as that looming space that throbs
before me and demanding 
that the song be heard, 
impossible the song, 
the song inviolate, 
and there upon a waiting breath.

Words make court
around the beauty I may not contain.
The goal is given, not defined,
intoned, and thrown upon the board.
I take
I break
I share the body and the blood,
and there within the courtyard
is the prize millenia have dreamed to touch.

within my outstretched hands
this very moment and
I shall not pass it by.

Beautiful sunset in swift apparel

She smiles in the wind having gold in hair
Pillars of cement line her inner voiced mind
Her stregnth comes in her immeasurable face

Love of a touch from another

Skipping rocks & such 
In the stream of captivating habitation
In circles commonly havoc from the distrust in others

She sings a lovely song as she tail skirts along
Timeless matter captivated by her hair in feathers
A crush through a blow in sorted venue plight
A song sheltered toward its beckoning call

The critics to her our all torn & battered
Her lips sag & smile is shattered
Her life as she knows take on the tremendous blows
With a timeless song in her heart

A rose petal in delicate sway
A happy smile to brighten anyone's day
A pull at her heart to light the spark to what it was she has been waiting for

Love in the eyes of the beholder

Forced to Believe

Borders closed rules in place, police are ready, and the faith is safe. 
You oppress our people and give them no choice. 
You suppress our people and take away our voice. 
We will knock down the walls lets begin, again 
If we are forced to believe that is not faith it is mental slavery. 

Solution it is in the words that need to be heard 
Evolution of the thought process that’s the word 
Revolution of the mind and then it is a matter of time 
Until the mind finds the means to an end 
If we are forced to believe that is not faith it is mental slavery. 

The mental slavery of you and me 
For this lifetime for our eternity 
Don’t you think it is time to be free? 
This needs to be said 
We are no longer walking among the living dead. 

Right is right and wrong is wrong 
Why won’t you let us sing our song 
Blind, deaf, and dumb, now you have maimed us, you think that you have won 
We know you are wrong, without ears, eyes, or tongue, 
I hear our voices rising in one glorious song 
If we are forced to believe that is not faith that is mental slavery.

We must search within ourselves for Him.

The infestation of life is lacking it.
A choir singing praise aloud to Him.
With lack of song and love, now lost abound.
Our song has pow'r forgot in our silence.
To lay our lives upon the ground in hope.
To die for those we know and those unknown.

Throne Room

The voice of Love is gentle seeks your heart to mend
screaming and abusive speech to shield from defend
kindness you have robed in the heart of your Son
whose disciples are collecting all loved old and young

Grant he will the prayers of those seeking peace
those pursuing righteousness and from tyranny release
freedom from what causes harm to walk in Liberty
to find your joy and happiness to vision given see

God has made the promise in which he cannot lie
the hope of everlasting Life in Jesus never die
Love is as strong as Death a seal set on your heart
when you truly know his Love never from it depart

How pleasant it receives you with joy and delight
like the most beloved when standing in his sight
made like the savour so like honey sweet
a song with it's enchantment no other voice can meet

It cannot be compared to anything but God
for he is its source its living waters laud
the fairest of the fair where desire is complete
this is the throne of God on heart it must take seat

The elixir in the goblet intoxication of sweet wine
how the taste and smell and touch majesty divine
unspoiled and unpolluted its embrace is clean
never will mistreat you be violent or mean

To dare to look upon it and in its depths be found
water it does all life and gives fertile ground
without it there's no Light to life where in darkness set
those who follow hatred live in Death forget

Awake awake oh sleeper lift your eyes on High
Love is the only thing we're assured can never die
It holds the universe together exists for all Time
like God we hold its passing memory deeply in our mind

Fall I do in worship beneath its gaze I bow
that into his presence by Son he does allow
to let us stand before him and take us in embrace
when we become like him we will know his face

The lark of life.

In the green fields of Summer
I opened my eyes,
And dreamed of a time
Where I’d climb to the skies,
And as I grew up
With a song in my heart,
I knew it was time
For my dream to depart.

So I opened my wings
And I started on up,
For my song was my wine
While the air was my cup,
And as I looked down
To the place I was born,
The green fields were bathed
In the light of the dawn.

Then I sang such a song
In the vale of the day,
While my spirit kept faith
In a strange sort of way,
As I kept rising up
In my Abbey of blue,
I knew it was right
And I knew it was true.

The world that had borne me
Was far, far below,
At the birth of my dream
In the morning’s soft glow,
 And my song was aflame
With the fire of the sun,
As I started back down
To where I had begun.

I passed through the clouds
And my feathers were kissed,
With the light Summer rain
And the softness of mist,
I remembered my birth
As I fell through the haze,
In those green glowing fields
And those soft Summer days.

Then all of a sudden
I reached earth again,
And I looked to the sky
As I sought to explain,
How the ups and the downs
Of a life in the air,
Help my heart understand
How my life is a prayer…

True Love

Roses are red 
Violets are blue
Candy is sweet 
And so are you 
You make my day
In your handsomeish way 
You sing a song 
And i sing along
because your voise
Fills me with pride
I was not always on your side 
IUsed to think your love was dark 
Because of your hair and your many marks
I looked at you as the out side in
But your love came from within
Your hair was dark but you had light 
Your true self came into sight 
From that point on 
We have had our song 
You are my man 
I am your girl 
You are the one who completes my world.

choose only because I know  his love is true, and I just cant stop loving you.

Beltane Night (Pantoum)

We'll raise the flames of Beltane night,
in song and dance we'll celebrate,
espoused by fires in Pagan rite,
our god and goddess incarnate.

In song and dance we'll celebrate
among the flames of love's desire
our god and goddess incarnate,
my promise made beside the fire.

Among the flames of love's desire
a heart and soul have been declared
my promise made beside the fire,
and now my life with you is shared.

A heart and soul have been declared
to you my love, my Queen of May
and now my life with you is shared
as we unite upon this day.

To you my love, my Queen of May

Song of Songs

Oh to sing the Song of Songs
and within his arms belong
there to look upon his face
is the dwelling of heavens place
with ones tears to wash his feet
and know his favor is complete
to share his table and his wine
and be bathed in Love divine
Perfect Love does cast out fear
when you walk with God so near
and when I become his lover
proceed he will my sins to cover
When born from God your free from sin
because the seed of loves from him
but the planted seeds must grow
spirit will teach what you must know
Not every spirit is from God
but only those who Jesus laud
that Jesus has come in the flesh
was propitiation with his death
That no lier works the truth
the serpents tongue a sayers sooth
practice of transgression commit
doing what love does not permit
If you walk in love you will not sin
or practice harm to other men
if for Love one becomes hated
from the world such is fated
That whosoever hears his voice
knowing loves the only choice
will be the one to overcome
walking as if already done
He who does not love knows naught God
nor in his path will he trod
but he that gave his life for us
and in him we will put our trust
Love is always perfect but I am not
covering for sin has Jesus bought
to purchase my life did he pay
the possession of Love forever stay
know little children love is from God
and he who walks with God walks in Love

Oceans Of The Blue

The oceans of the world my dear,
Are filled with lovers' salty tears;
For when they are so far apart,
More tears flow from all loving hearts.

Yet all tears aren't from lonely hearts,
Some are of joy they do impart;
They flow from me, they flow from you,
They flow into the oceans blue.

And as they flow onto the deep,
They give the whales their song so sweet;
They sing of love, they sing the blues,
They fill us with great joy in tune.

And as the whales sound in the deep,
Their song does echo in relief;
To place the love found in our hearts,
And give us strength while we're apart.

Angels Don't Sing the Blues

Sent down from Heaven, their jobs are sure tough
But they don’t fly away when the going gets rough
They rise to the challenge to bring back wonder and hope
Failure does not happen in their line of work
Cuz’ Angels, no Angels,  they don’t sing the blues

Angels sing strong from the high mountain tops
Sometimes it’s a rock song to wake spirits up
Sometimes it’s a ballad when babies must sleep
Or a love song in country that just makes you weep
But Angels, no Angels, don’t sing the blues

They work behind the scenes to enlighten world faith
Always there when you need’em, our Heavenly base
They make house calls to heal another broken heart
Gatekeepers to the soul, they lighten the dark
The sky is the limit as only Angels can know

When times are a troubling,  their first on the scene
Not afraid to help out or even dirty their wings
The tune that they dance to, comes from Heaven above
Giving rhythm and gospel to everyone they love
Cuz’ Angels, no Angels,  they don’t sing the blues

And you know Angels can’t read music,
but they sure wing it well
As they learn from the Almighty,
Who swings with, the heartbeat of humanity,
From Heavens high hill

Angels sing strong from the high mountain tops
Sometimes it’s a rock song to wake spirits up
Sometimes it’s a ballad when babies must sleep
Or a love song in country that just makes you weep
But Angels, no Angels, don’t sing the blues

They just don’t sing the blues
No, Angels don’t sing the blues
Angels don’t sing the blues

The White-Lighted Glow

The white-lighted glow
Radiates above us
And below, billowing up
The management of faces,
And the eyes,
Showing us the other world,
It's dark deceit and naked, pure beam
In a voice and direction in a deep, deep dream.
In this clouded song might  it show
This white, white, white-lighted glow

(And you will never know the words to your song or the origin of your Name.)
(But you will sing in hot-blooded declaration all the same.)

Yet There

After the last time I heard your voice
I came out of the room where I stayed
At the sight of the not so bright day
Your voice came reverberating
Mild and solemn and succinct 
Like a love song to love birds
Every moment was unique and worth while

I looked around 
You were there but I could not hold you
Your scent filled the air
And the voice was loudest and so very close

Where are you?

This assurance was strong and the confidence was sore
Here comes the love of my life
The love song my heart delights 
The warmth that livens my day
The solace that keeps my heart

My strife is over
My labor is gone
Behold my heart has come to me.

If you listen to the words of this song your soul will display.
Nearer to the truth of faith, will all the words show truth.
Do it in the name of Heaven, be justified in the end.
Every time I recall this line, my heart flutters in dismay.
Lost treasure on mountain, to die for it would be uncouth.
Intelligence to be your guide, all their treasure would send.
Building greed and destruction, sharing was offered to all.
Let peace shine upon the earth, good will and love to all men.
Every war has been fought for good, though it served only sin.

“One Tin Soldier” is the song that had an everlasting thought and impression upon my life.

It's so mild in the quite suburbs
with rain falling in October,
and unable to sleep, I face 
insomnia for certain;
rain, keep on falling and let me hear
that steady, pelting sound on
the closed windows....a melody for
the saddest song should be written.

I must choose the right mood,
a minor scale to match this melancholy,
and a slow tempo growing into a crescendo,
and I could even throw in a scherzo;
and transport it with a C Major to smooth
some sadness out of the melody,
which tomorrow somebody
will hum, or whistle by learning the easy tune.

Hoping this song will be a hit,
thanks to the falling rain 
in October for the sudden inspiration...
when I couldn't think of anything else!
Wishing the rain would stop at six,
so I could see the rising sun across
the eastern sky and listen to the lark
that built his nest under my windowsill.

It's past sunrise, and the shimmering clouds hesitate to leave,
and with nothing to look forward to... I must believe
that the rain falling in October, 
can teach me the game of solitaire;
and pinned against my warm pillow,
I don't have anything to share but sorrow!
Flap your wide wings, friendly lark and repeat my song,
note by note; and without a lead sheet, I can't play it for very long...

The Living Song

 The Living Song
  Sing a new song everyday
Live your song
For the song comes from deep within
You are the song
Sing it
Sing it
Loud like Thunder
The seas will part
The heavans will open
In pleasing
Sing a New song
Sing a New song

A thing of time and patience

When the potter started to clay
out of wisdom,moulded in stages
 light,separating night from day
 and within time perfected all pages.

A thing of time and patience
 blesses the shoulders of the wise 
and the trueness of a firm conscience 
builds solidly joy in the eyes

for what patience can't do,
impatience does neither
though tomorrow seems odd 
 for the hangs that swim quicker.

But hear therefore the song of the shephered
 "in the watchful eyes of season the rain must clatter dusty grounds,and dusty 
ground  sprouts forages ,and forages bost the thigh of sheep "

so therefore guide your craving in the tickling of the clock,
and where delay seems as dailies or fog seems to cloud the sky 
sing the song of the shepherd.

A song from above

                       There is a song from above 
                       That takes away our tears
                       Flowing freely from above
                       Like a stream of flowing river.
                       It’s God’s melody of love
                       That quiets all our fears

                       A song the God composed
                       Like an orchestra, it flows.
                       By his angels, it descends.
                       To the saints and the faithful below
                       Abundant life, it gives to behold.
                       A heavenly symphony at glow.
                       Too fine for mortal heart to withhold.

                       The song softly goes forth 
                       Every moment, every hour
                       But when the human soul, encompassed
                       With earthly decayed showers
                       Like the garment of filthy robe descend.
                       And the song is no more ours.

                       Oh heavenly father
                       By thy own Holy Spirit
                       Send down the heavenly music
                       So true, so beautiful
                       And so soul refreshing 
                       That those who hear it
                       May long to hear it more.

A Message From Heaven

The spring was lousy
The weather was bad
Had water in the basement
The grass grew to fast.

Four months later 
I needed a break
So I decided 
A trip I'd take.

Off to the Bank 
And the Lawyers too
They knew my Will
And what to do.

My plans were made
The house secure
I got in the car
I'm ready for sure.

And as I turned the key to get on my way
A special song began to play.
And what was that song I hear you ask
The title is "I Hope You Dance."

Oh my Beloved       Come fetch me home
my desire is only        for you alone
descend from the Mountain      upon your white steed
for my heart is burning      you only I need

So long have I waited        planted like trees
in earthly places       by temporal seas
my heart is driven     to seek out your face
the visions of you           I wish not to  erase

My Beloved comes riding   upon a War Horse
none can exceed him         none can change his course
fully he's  armoured     prepared for War
Light goes before him       and darkness no more

I'll come to greet you       my lamp full of oil
White is my gown       cleansed completely of soil
I have made myself    ready          for you    I'm awake
One love have I only        no err or mistake 

My Torch and my beacon   Who walks in the Flame
A  River of Fire      proceeds his New Name 
his followers many    in heaven    and earth
upon his arrival          a new heaven      new earth

Swifter than eagles       his visions   are true 
He will expose           the things men    hidden do 
Instructed was he           in war he was taught
to destroy strongholds         the fortresses of thought

making it great in 2008 (part13): with a song and a prayer

life is filled with many problems and many struggles
but with a song and a prayer go to God with all your troubles
as death is a certainty on which you can rely
for as sure as you are born one day you will die
trouble is always on the horizon and some type of storm is coming your way
so how do we as Christians maintain our hope and joy from day to day?
the subject of math is teaching one how a problem is solved
but the math of life is a series of problems that we need to resolve

the citizens of Philippi were upset by those things that had prevailed
when Paul and Silas rebuked that evil spirit and were thrown into jail
falsely accused of creating an uproar when they preached the Gospel of God
beaten and then incarcerated for what was in their hearts
that demon spirit of soothsaying had called Paul and Silas out
so they then confronted it and in Jesus' name knocked it out
but while in jail at the midnight hour Paul and Silas knelt down to pray
to God who is always in the midst whenever trouble comes your way

with a song and a prayer they called on God's saving salvation
and then suddenly it felt like an earthquake shook the jail's foundation
all the cell doors were then thrown open
all the iron shackles were miraculously broken
the presence of The Holy Spirit was inside of that filthy jail
the presence of The Lord our God was inside of that prison cell
The Lord Our God was there at the midnight hour
The Lord Our God was there with His mercy, grace and power

with a song on their lips and a prayer in their hearts
Paul and Slas called forth the saving grace of Our God
they were accused unjustly by an angry and greedy mob
mad because without that soothsaying spirit the people they could no longer rob
but with a song and a prayer Paul and Silas called on He
The Lord Our God Jesus the Christ who'll always give you victory

for whatever in life you mess up
God will then dress it up
and whatever in life you happen to drop
God will lift it like cream to the top
make it great in 2008 by singing and song and to God start to pray
let the presence of the Holy Spirit revive you this day
and when you're in spiritual bondage and you need a wake-up
allow God and the Holy Spirit to come in and shake things up
Jesus will calm the storms and wrestle with your struggles
and the Holy Spirit will comfort you in your times of trouble
with a song and a prayer call on God and don't hesitate
let Him into your life and make 2008 great

Glory To The Lord

Glory to the Lord, glory to the Lord

Glory to the Lord, glory to the Lord

I was dead yes before
Now I live for evermore

Changed my life from bad to good
Now I'll praise Him like I should
Glory, glory to the Lord

Glory, glory to the Lord
Glory O glory this song is my testimony
Glory, glory to the Lord
Yes He died on Calvary now He lives inside of me
Glory, glory to the Lord
When I think of what He's done
I just want to sing this song
Glory, glory to the Lord

You hear the song Jesus Loves Me
You sing along cause you know it
but is it mere words nothing to it
a nice song you've heard 
or could it be true
would you know what to do
if someone asked you
Who is He that your singing about?
Who is He does He really care?
Can you tell me who He is?
Do you know who He is?
We tell everyone that Jesus loves them
Do they really understand what that means 
all that He did
so others could live
He's not just a man 
look at His nail pierced hands
would you know what to do
if someone asked you
Who is He that your talking about?
Who is He does He really care?
Can you tell me who He is?
Do you know who He is?

The Sweetest Song

Lord guide me in Jesus name
And let me sing a sweet refrain
A melody to touch your soul
A Godly song that wont grow old
A song inspired by your love
That’s sung by angels high above
A psalm that speaks of God’s own Son
And of the victory that He won
O’er the world, the flesh and Satan’s grasp
O’er all our sins of the past
He took sin’s power and made it  null
On a hill known as the Skull
‘Twas there the sweetest song was sung
When Jesus uttered “it is done”.

On Eagles Wings

Above the Altar of our Church
There hangs a large Cross
To tell of Christ's punishment
For trying to save us all.

And when the light hits the Cross
I can not help but stare
The shadow that I do see
Brings to mind the song "On Eagles Wings."

The shadow of Christ's arms and hands
Are the wings that soar the land
And from His body and the cloth drape
The Eagle's body and tail take shape.

I realize I tend to see
Things no one sees but me
That's alright because I know
Christ hovers there above for us below.

And each time I see this Cross
I think about the one's I've lost
And know  they're so much better there with Him
Free from pain and whole again.

And as the song echoes through my mind
I look to this Cross and it fills my time
Knowing one day we'll ascend on Eagle's wings
And reside in Heaven with Christ our King.

Never Find Love

You’ll never find anyone else like me,
Someone with so much generosity.
You’ll never be free from me.
I’ll be on your mind constantly.
No matter where you are or who you’re with,
Or who you try to get love from.
‘Cuz it’s like that song you’ll never find another
Love as good as this, 
‘Cuz it’s God whom I represent
And His love is the shhh the bomb.

You’ll never be treated like royalty again.
I gave too much for us to be just friends.
None of your fantasies will be fulfilled.
Your destiny won’t be revealed.
You’ll never find love as good as this,
Because the Master’s love flowed through me.
That is the reason for our long attachment,
And the magnetic attraction.

You’ll never be truly happy without me.
So, you can love that other girl.
It’s your loss to not have chosen God over the world.
You’ll never be able to look at anyone else with sincerity.
‘Cuz it’s like that song you’ll never find another
Love as good as this, 
‘Cuz it’s God whom I represent
And His love is the shhh the bomb.

1 John 4:8 
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

Romans 12:2
Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that Ye 
may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect, will of God." 

Woke up thinking about this song by Something for the People titled My Love is the Shhh a 
song I used to listen to  before and after 
church choir rehearsal was released in  Fall 1997 I believe.

A new life

Sing a song of hope or sorrow
There's another day or no tomorrow

Time it keeps moving forward
and if I don't I'll get left behind

Take a flight like a distant shore bird
look away and I'll be fine

By the power invested in me
I fly away across the sea

Like a stone before it's sculpted
Like a song before it's sung
like an art before it's painted
Like a deed before it's done

My Lord and My Love

Take me , my love to the waters source
souls naked to each other and our course
my praise lifted the apple of  mine eye
art thou glorious , tis mine song to cry
You must lead my way in a walk thats True
for all the fine things I have found in you
gentle call so beckons you are my delight
your visions fill all mine day and night
You are too precious to leave my mind
for you I shall leave all others behind
gypsy soul has wandered the world lost
her dances with others behind her are tossed
You are jade like the sprouts are green
the life you've breathed into my being
like the spray of waterfalls tumbling down
I bow to what our God has crowned
You are gentle in a world thats cruel
and emollient that can heal a fool
you have taken whats broken and made it whole
from the world which has taken its toll
You are the song upon my lips
the clothing strength that girds my hips
you are the blood within my heart
the energy that fills every part
the breath of spirit which gives me life
the calm that eases all my strife
Your sacrifice has flowed crimson red
that you might give life unto the dead
I must meld my soul to you
so I might learn the things you do

You love me with a heart so pure
I know all time it will endure
My heart skips like the rams of mountains
you quench my thirst with your fountains

your pardon has released from the fall
tis only as I have answered your call
the melody of love did my heart soften
may you , my love enter here quite often
You are the shade of all the groves
the whitened wool of all the droves
the warmth that dwells in rays of light
the knowledge that gives to all insight
you are the flash of epiphany
the spectrum that brings us to our knee
as the universe moves to your will
you do with abundance our lives do fill

The song We Once Knew

It is a song 
that we grew up with

A song which contains 
our hopes, joys and fears

But the mists of time 
obscured our sight, our sensitivity

The mists of time 
began to block the flow of chi

But we persevered
Once again our song shall be sung

Over the land 
A bird wings its way home

And we watch 
enchanted by the sight

Details | Sonnet | |


When bird song rumored dawn, I climbed a hill,
A hill I've climbed before, again, again.
I came to learn a song so glad and still
It only sounds at dawn, just when...Just when.

I climb because He said the shadow lifts
Like mist is burned from silver mirror lakes,
Then new reflection on the surface drifts
As all below the surface breaks.  It breaks.

A breeze strummed grass, and gold announced the dawn.
The common graces seemed to chant the start
Of day;  yet only this day breaks upon
The symphonies inside your heart.  Your heart.

Among the miracles that Easter gives
Are songs of Always.  Listen now.  He lives!

Isaiah 42:10

Momma's Love

The wisdom that I learned from her.
    Were like pure diamonds, oh yes they were.
The one true thing I can truly say.
    Is her faith in God and how she loved to pray.
And all the years that I created much pain.
    And I figured somehow I’d cause her faith to strain.
But to my surprise it only grew and it got so strong.
    Still determined as she was to help me along.
She prayed for me with a never ending and a faithful heart.
    She prayed to God that I’d straighten up, and somehow maybe I’d get smart.
Before she died her wish came true.
    I found redemption I was made anew.
 There was a song called “ I Was The Only Hell My Momma Ever Raised.”
     That was my song it fit me in so many ways.
Mrs. Christy wrote a poem called ‘That Mother Of Mine.”
     That got me to thinking on how my mother would shine.
A very kind hearted woman that always to her, her family came first.
    When grandkids came around you’d think she would burst.
I know in my heart she did her very best.
    And if she were given a score she'd get an A+ on this test.
I know I was a lucky man to have a mother that cared.
    And so her memories that come to mind is what I love to share.
The day the Lord took her He took a chunk of me.
     And I love her so and I just thank God for sharing you see.

Eighteenth Fabel

 Eighteenth Fabel 
Eighteenth Fabel 


Praising Jesus 



Wondering uncertain from one day to the next working for survival never needing 
any rest building no foundation that has not already been prelaid but marching to 
my final curtain on the strength of HIS shed blood on the price of life HE paid. 
Rude self centered people all day long are teaching me a path not connected to 
my song the love inside of me is taken when they stride in perfect ignorance they 
glide on oily fingertips like some forgotten hide left in the center of a hunting 
camp with maggots all at work no one can use the hide for clothing no one can 
make it work. Suddenly remembered pain of death intended oh Jesus take me 
make me whole and well and keep them all away from me the naked and the 
dead they rise in misery to foster they beliefs upon a lame and morose figure a 
aged creature just as eye am beneath a clouded sky no moon is visible no sun 
but sonshines down on me today and life is hard and life is stirring in the clay. 
Devoid of Human life they are only interested in the personal perspective seeing 
nothing but the end of own nose and looking down it at others prose. 

Society of man is living in ignorance and darkness no hope but the grave 
atheists and deists marking time by taking up worthless spaces meant for 
others to occupy if you cannot do the work assigned to you get up and let 
someone else try the end is near oh GOD the end will come too soon for some 
of them. A half remembered song about the lyrics sung you cannot petition the 
LORD with Prayer? Yes eye can and hopefully it's there the Thorny Crown 
replaced with silver gold and brass or just the light that shines from Inside place 
of GOD? 

Not meant to ever resemble money not meant to be much more than love. He 
kept the life. He Loves. Jesus Lives. He Rules and as he Rules HE loves.

My Lighthouse

Lord Jesus, you make my walk
brighter each day, you are
           my lighthouse.

As the song says, I owe my
life to you, because you are
             my lighthouse.

Darkness befalls me, whenever I
turn away from you, because you are
              my lighthouse.

Your light guides me to places
you want me to go, because you are
                 my lighthouse.

Praying always to walk with
you, to let you control me,
so that you will always be,
                    my lighthouse.

wrote 8-21-09   inspired by the song "The Lighthouse"

Maestro of Heaven....

The treetops dance above with the clouds
as I raise my hands and sing aloud
raindrops sparkle in swirling mist
as I raise my lips to recieve your kiss

Light from the stars,the sun and the moon
soon to fall upon natures boon,
deep vibrations which fall from above
lucky for those,such celestial love....

I'd much rather see the song in your eyes
then to try to grasp you from my mind.....

Barefoot dancing with the moist grass
as I move to a melody sweetly cast
others with their shoes on don't touch the ground
unable to feel these deep earth sounds

Maestro of Heaven....please continue your song
even if we don't all sing along,
deep within i'm dancing toward where I belong
visions of your love make me strong.....but,

I'd much rather see the song in your eyes
then to try to grasp you from my mind.....

Sing A Song Of Love

Sing a song of love, 
Sing a song of praise
Sing a song of love for 
The rest of your living days

Sing a song of praise 
And hope will come in time
Let your song ring out 
All the way up to Heaven’s sublime

Sing a song of love today, 
Lift up your voice to sing
Lift up your voice of praise 
To the almighty King

Sing a song of offering, 
And sing it loud and clear
Sing it with all your heart and feel 
The Lord come oh so near

Keep singing your song of love, 
Keep singing your song of praise
Keep doing it with all your heart and He
Will bless all your living days

Angel Song

I took a walk before a setting sun
The birds chirping all around
All at once, I stopped in amazement
As I heard the most beautiful sound

A song of worship, a song of praise
Such a wonderful melody
Just a glimpse I had to have
My eyes just had to see

Walking softly, not to disturb
Along the path I crept
My eyes beheld such a great wonder
I stopped, and with joy, I wept

I looked upon an angel choir
Singing a song so full of grace
Oh, how I wanted to join in
But I just stood in place

Since that day, I've changed my life
And when my days get long
I think about that joyful day
When I'll join in the Angel Song

When The Last Song Is Sung

When the last song is sung on this earth,
I'll be standing before my King, rejoicing
my rebirth.
Oh what a day, He planned for me,
when my Kings face I see,
when the last song is sung on this earth.
Heavens Gates will open wide, and I'll be
welcomed on the other side, when all the ones
who've gone before, will be waiting on God's
Golden Shore, when the last song is sung on
this earth.
Silver clouds, and streets paved with gold,
Oh such beauty to behold, as the King invites me in, 
a place absent  from pain and sin,
when the last song is sung on this earth.
No more tears we'll have to dry, all because my Savior died,
He paid our debt on Calvary, and one day He'll come for me,
when the last song is sung on this earth.
Oh what a day of jubilee, 
when He wraps His loving arms, around me,
when the last song is sung on this earth.
When the last.. song is sung... on this earth.

Choose To Dance

A song leaps from my heart at the beginning of each new day, 
A song with a melody that never plays a sad song, 
Never carries a tune that is wrong, this is just my way…
If I have the choice of sitting this one out, I will choose to dance! 
If there is breath of life there is always hope of life, 
Love and great things to experience and know! 
It is so important if there is love of the heart, to let it show! 

Some live a life that never knows real sorrow, 
Some face sorrow more than it seems they should. 
Some we say, have more than their share, 
But still face it as much as they could. 
If you have a choice dance, dance, dance! 

Even in the face of sorrow, I don't want to sit this one out, 
Even in the face of tears, I don't want to sit this one out, 
I want to choose to dance! 
I hope with all my heart, that no matter come what may, 
That you will always choose to dance! Dance of the heart, dance of the soul, 
Dance with all your might, dance with courage, never letting go.
Choose To Dance!

When Andy Sings

I heard a song one Sunday night
I never will forget
It sounded like an angel
I sat there and just wept

Only the Lord himself could put that sound
Inside of just one man
It left me knowing without a doubt
Music was God's plan

The words, the trumpet, the soft melody
Touched the depth of me
I had an aching urge inside
To get down on my knees

It occured to me that song alone
"Holy, Holy, Holy"
Had the power - solely, on its own
To bring a lost soul home

To witness worship so profound
One expects to see wings
I know that God is smiling down
When Brother Andy sings!
