Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down

To the tune of "Santa Clause Is Coming To Town"

You better look up,
prepare for His sight.
The Lord will come back
some day or some night.
Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down.

He's making a list.
He's paid the great price.
Who's going in route
to His paradise?
Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down.

He sees you when you're breathing.
He knows you need His grace.
He knows that we have all been bad,
but He died to take our place.

With bright Seraphim and bright Cherubim,
Trumpy trumpets, and drummy drum drums,
Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down.

He sees you when you're weeping.
He offers His embrace.
He knows you like nobody else,
yet He loves you anyway.

You better not doubt.
You wanna know why?
Your life could end soon.
There's no second try.

IM READY

Like a little child 
who's dirty and unclean
I've played in the mud 
chasing selfish dreams
Guess I never grew up
A game, was kick the can
But the years have blown by
Now it's time to face the Man
And I'm not ready..
God, I'm not ready!

Then He says to me
Red rover, red rover
Son, it's not to late
You still can come over
Repent and come home
Olly, olly in come free
Jesus gave his life
So that you can be with me

Bowed my head
Still dripping with mud
Took me, just as I am
Born again, covered in crud
Tug of war
Pulled me across His line
Jesus saves
And now He is mine
Oh, I am ready
God, I am ready!

*Jesus saves "Just As I Am" cleansing our soul, making us whole, 
giving us a heart to want to clean inside and out!

Moments In Time

The sweetest sounds of burning trees
A gentle stroking in the breeze
The calm has lasted past the storm
Cloudy visions, Satan’s roar
Too many sights have passed my way
A time found only in the haze
The softest screams are running bare
My aching bones creak as I stare

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark

The battle’s started at the end
No one is coming to repent
The sinners grab their wine from prey
No judgment calling here to stay
The sport is reckless to be told
The one is laughing at his souls
It falters nowhere to be sure
The power grows forevermore
Like a spirit in the wind
I have no say in where you’ve been 
But cross the line to come to me
And pay the price for ecstasy

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark.

Forever Radiant




Radiant hymn's   of morning sun
of Godly words   O' how I run
to and fro
I traipse in search
in love I rest
still      my spirit yearns  

I will sing of the Lord's great love
forever...
forever..
forever...

I hear the call    upon the hill
in shallow breath    my heart lie still
O' trial O' fear
I march ahead
I call my king
on Zion's perch

I will sing of the Lord's great love
forever...
forever..
forever...


To proclaim    everlasting     the prize
onward and bestowed to rise
O' anointed one
I march ahead
in love I rest
each day of toil   

I will sing of the Lord's great love
I will sing
forever..
forever...

forever... 

O' how I bear   in my heart
in completion   just    to be a part
with sinful flesh
my spirit cries
I call my King
to shun desire

I will sing of the Lord's great truth
I shall sing forever
forever...
forever...
forever...

Amen......

Hymn One

As the title says, this is a hymn sort of thing, though I haven't been able to think up a 
title that I'm really happy with yet.


The LORD, enthroned in Heav’n above,
Has shown his grace and perfect love.
While I was still to sin a slave,
Jesus raised me from the grave,
For at the cross, as Jesus died
A child of wrath was made alive!

And when I did my sins confess,
Christ clothed me with His righteousness.
God did not just the sinner spare,
But called him son and made him heir,
For at the cross, that great exchange,
What Christ had earned, a wretch has gained.

I cannot claim myself to save,
For all my sin was all I gave.
Yet Jesus took this foul donation
And by His blood bought my salvation,
For at the cross, I daren’t forget,
Jesus cleared my unpaid debt.

God removing my disgrace,
Made my heart His dwelling place.
Sealed by Holy Guarantee,
I am dead, Christ lives through me.
For at the cross the curtain tore,
From the heavens to the floor.

Jesus' Great Love Has Unfettered Chains

"Jesus, Jesus there is  just something about that name"*
Jesus
He is my friend and shephard
His great love has unfettered
Chains, I'm free
Now as if "devil never even lived"
Jesus' great love has unfettered chains
My life has been bettered
"Difficulties in life are intended to make us better, not bitter"*
In this wonderful country of USA
"Thanking" God, "understanding" his love, "granting" forgiveness, "enchanting" is his name, Jesus I'm "chanting"
For Jesus is my friend
And there Is "Something About That Name"*
Emmanuel, Christ, Good Shephard, King of Kings
Lamb, Messiah, Redeemer, Savior
Jesus, Redeemer
When I look upon His Face and see those loving eyes, happy my heart will be
For my heart now runs on empty
Sometimes feeling condemned,now let
There be today "something in clouds anew"*

The Sins Of Our Fathers


The sins of our fathers cast such long and unremorseful shadows
   Leaving in its quake such a painful sting as only God would know.
With tangled webs that reach to the bowels of hell.
   Manipulating lies destructive words which only a father could tell.
Knowing full well how the vicious lies will be cast downward in a spiraling effect.
   To rob our children of any pride and leave them as societies social rejects.
With no recourse but to follow in fathers misguided and devious ways.
   With unknowing and uncaring reasoning they go forth longing for better days.
So where is the justice for the generation that draws the short end of the stick.
   All to suffer for the mistakes of being sired by a father who was morally sick.
Once in a great while you might luck out and see one escape such a horrible fate.
   Most often as not the majority wind up like dad filled with anger and hate.
If the Lord ever places in your path one of these castaways of life.
    Maybe you can be the one to help free it from all its anguish and strife.
Break the vicious cycle of torment and pain.
   Teach them of our Savior, Jesus, and that not every dark cloud contains rain.
Tell them how Jesus died so they know about the cleansing power of His blood.
   And how God with one gentle breath could tame the waters of a mighty raging 
flood.
And how we can repent of our sins and even the sins of our fathers and still be 
saved.
   Seek Jesus and ask for forgiveness with a humble and sincere heart, then our 
sins we confess of, He so graciously waived.

Climbing Moriah

I am climbing up Moriah
With the thing I love most dearly;
On the mountain's heights above me,
I will see my God more clearly.
Incredible expectation!
For with the knife and holy fire,
I must on a stony altar
Bind up and slay my heart's desire.

O, this God of mine, all knowing!
Past my finite mind can see
In the distant, vast eternal
All that He destined I should be.
Only He can make a promise,
And He fulfills each sovereign vow;
Though He slay me, I will serve Him.
He led me here, I'll trust Him now.

The knife is raised; beyond the void
I dare not cast my weary sight;
I can hear no gentle laughter 
In the deep canyons of the night.
I will look instead at Jesus,
And His command I will obey.
There are rams in all His thickets;
He is the Christ, the same always.

THE NIGHT JESUS SAVED HER

November 27, still fresh in my mind. It was the year 1997, and the night my daughter died. Her daddy came home drunk that night, she had a cold and was laying in her crib. When she started to cry, I feared the worst, and worst did happen, and I was left all alone. Jesus saved her that night, from the pain and the suffering, but I was left without my daughter, and nobody to show me love. A tiny little baby, only four weeks old, did not have the chance to say "Good Bye!" She was so innocent, and knew of no faults. Just a small little soul, had no chance in this life. This year I will not be celebrating Hallow's Eve, this was her birthday, and the day I was happy my daughter came into my life. November 27th, was the day that she died, but it was also my birthday, and the day I wished I had died. Her daddy was sentenced to life in prison, no parole, and no chance of escape. My daughter will not be spending no holidays with me, and I will never hear "Happy Mother's Day, Mommy. I love you so much!" My birthday used to be special to me at one time, but to me it is only a dreaded memory of the death of my little angel. Jesus will show her daddy no mercy, cause an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. With arms wide open, I run to the Lord, He feels my pain and He feels my sorrow. The flashbacks still haunt me of that dreary night, but I must learn to manage and learn to cope. My daughter may be dead within my mind, but in my heart, my daughter always lives.

I Still Remember

I scratch my head and too often wonder
And while gazing hinder I see disarray.
I recall those times of my err and blunder
times void of Jesus to brighten my day.

As I posed the question did any care?
The obvious answer I was unable to see.
Until life became more than I could bear
I found Jesus was patiently waiting on me.

I realized that countless agonized for me
Through prayer straight to God's throne.
But from blinded eyes I'd refused to see
Attempting to do things on my very own.

But during a crisis I became spirit broken
For my body was now stricken with cancer.
I surrendered life entire, not just a token
I accepted Jesus Christ as the living answer.

No Better Friend

When darkness encompasses about you,
And it seems your world's tumbling down.
Just look to Jesus who will lift you up,
And spread His love all around.

For His love is all eternal,
His mercy and grace is your friend.
He'll never leave nor forsake you
And he'll be there 'til the end.

For somewhere over the rainbow,
The sun comes shining through.
The darkness of night is past shadow,
And you'll know He walks beside you.

Believe that you're never alone,
Let Jesus be your guide.
Trust Him, for He'll take care of you
No matter or what err' betide.

So anchor your soul in Jesus,
For on Him you can depend.
Nobody can do you like Jesus
There is no better friend.

Sea impression

                 
                 Wave a sea softened
                  and a pain and a tenderness
                   throw dreams in fascination
                   of the blue.
                   And let shave the waves of
                   Your eternity , oh, weigh
                    above me,
                    oh,weigh a  coast of years.
                    Carry far in azure, spiral
                    ships,
                    with bulging little abdomens,
                    flutter with mahagony pinions
                    and already in vain  expect you
                    to stop the scales harbours 
                    with hot flames for You are
                    open.
                    Far away, far away ,far away,
                    stretched string,
                    heart and frank await the 
                    hymn of June.
                    All sea sisters are dressed in
                    mother-of-pearl garment
                    embroidered of kiss of 
                    eternity. 
                    In the morning hunts them
                    fishermen and revive with
                    breath of their man’s hands.
                    In the evening girls wash 
                    their black tunics,
                    in their blue hearts,
                    their feet white ,who cadge
                    heavy chains.
                    The night is squeezed enigma
                    and ugly,
                    predatory like a bat pecking
                    of scarlet fig.
                    Sea sisters, sea sisters,
                    remember His steps 
                    which go through you noiselessly,
                  and ou swing like
                  bloody wine-
                 hold in His fingers Herod,
                 Pilate washes his hands,
                in Yours heirs
               and they bristled like winter
               icicles bristles of innoncent blood .
               There at Golgotha 
                hearing terrible cry,
                blood gushes like
               wounded river disappear
               like Easter roses,
              in weeds of flushed 
     preditory crowd,
     to open way of
     saving.
     Who is He?
     Do you heard 
     His name ?
     He is Messiah,
     God’s anoited
      Jesus Christ.
      Like little sheeps,
      clouds of candy floss,
      they welcome festivaly.
       Barefooted are feet 
      of lovely swarthy steps
     of the sun, came to bow,
      before You , Creator.
      The sea throws his 
       magnificent silver flesh,
      blue like heavently lace,
       to swallow all stars 
       only Bethlehem’s
      stays inextinguishable,
       pretty like uncreated
      like an apple of not 
      born girl.

MY SHEPHERD CARES FO ME

The Lord Jesus is my shepherd,
Green pastures are my bed.
Beside a gently flowing stream      
Of living waters I am led.
And God feeds my hungry spirit    
With His manna from above.
He’s my shepherd, and He leads me           
In His paths of wondrous love.

In the valley of death's shadow     
My  soul  need  know  no  fear, 
For the giver of  all   life
Is forever standing near.
I am guided through the darkness                      
By His constant, holy  light.
He’s my Shepherd and He’ll lead  me    
Through this land of darkest night.   

Though the foe camps all around   me,    
My soul is safe from harm;  
I  am safely in the shelter    
Of God's mighty outstretched arm.  
I  know Satan cannot touch me                     
While my Savior holds my hand; 
He’s my Shepherd, and He’ll lead  me                        
To the happy promised land.

He'll not leave me nor forsake me; 
Of this, I have no doubt. 
And when I get in trouble,                               
He's right there to help me out.  
I have come to trust His saving power; 
His sure truth has set me free.  
The Lord Jesus my Shepherd 
And I know He cares for me.

The Wedding

Sometimes things are up,
And sometimes they are down,
Sometimes black is white, 
And sometimes it is brown.
All the rivers flowing,
Back to the sacred sea,
All the monkeys climbing,
Up the very same tree.
You think you know a lot,
Think you know it all,
But the autumn leaves are falling,
At the north wind's lonely call.
The thinking of the meaning,
The reasons lost and gone,
At last the place is ready, 
A vacant holy throne.
The emptiness that fill you,
Fills you from inside,
Is the treasure you are holding,
The bridegroom's holy bride.
And now the north wind's blowing,
Blowing down the Way,
And now we sit here waiting,
For the bridegroom's wedding day.

God Bless The Child

God Bless The Child
By Nate Spears
Published 2013 in “Death OF A Rose” By Nate Spears


God bless the child that see’s no evil
The child that digs within his soul
To survive unpleasing
With pain never easing; just teasing

God bless the child that clashes with the Titans
The child fighting for existence
Steady fighting relentless
Relentlessly, 
Fighting the struggle
For what he believe is nothing
But he’s a child of god
So he’s blessed to be a front man

God bless the child that know not nothing
The child that comes to realize
That help’s not coming
Wondering the streets without a clue
Of what to do
Ignorance is all surrounding
Grief is all around them
Without any signs of peace

God bless the child that you conceive
Give them life
Give the strength
Let them find happiness in a world
Running thin on peace
May God bless
All his wonderful children.

How Could I Not

I cry Jesus...and you're there
Lord...nobody cares...
For me....the way that you do

When peace floods my soul
Like I've never known
How could I Not....love you

On the turbulent sea
There's millions like me
Searching...like I used to do

You said....if I cared
Then your way I'd share
And How could I not....love you

How could I turn away
How could I never say
Thank you..for all that you've done

For laying your life down
Turning my life around
For God giving his only Son

For taking my place
And amazing grace
For healing my heart through and through

For.....forgiving my sins
And being my friend
How could I not.....love you

As He calls my name...

What a Happy day,
as the Sunshine dance
and the Music play.
What a Happy day
as He calls my name,
as I hear His voice,
I just look his way.
What a Happy Day,
As I feel His warmth,
As I feel his love,As
I kneel down and pray.
What a Happy joyful day,
When He calls my name,
in such a special way,Through 
the old man in the street,
through the  blind boy
that i hug and the prisoners,
i greet.What a Happy day,
as He calls my name,in
the sound of the rain,
through the Colored world,
through each  singing bird,
through Our Mother Earth,
I hear Him call my name.
What a Happy day,as Jesus 
calls,through my every friend,
As Jesus calls,Give the poor
some food,and the sick,a hand.
What a Happy day,as
I hear him call my name,
in such a special  way,
I feel His love,in the flying
dove, As I hear His voice,
in the Celestene sky above.

He's the great I AM

some time ago
a lad so young
would sit in church 
and chew his gum
write silly notes
to the cute little girl 
sitting down from him

never listened to
what the preacher said 
this stoic place
felt oh so dead
the sound of hymns
made him dread
that every week
he had to go

now in high school
folks knew his name
sports and music
small town fame
full of himself
and out of control
serious car accident
barely survived the roll

a hospital bed
now he couldn't hide
when the preacher came
the boy about died
he skipped the sermon
instead took his hand
said God loved enough
to become a man

died on a cross
took the sinner's place
a simple invitation
to taste amazing grace
on that day the lad
bowed heart and knee
ask Jesus in 
that lost boy was me!

Jesus is now my all
absolute everything
the loftiest song
purpose for being
rock and fortress
yet innocent lamb
For every need..
He's the great I AM!

The Perfect Christmas Gift

The angel Gabriel appeared to Mary,
He said that she would bear a son,
And call Him Jesus, the Son of David,
The Saviour, man, and Holy One.

(Chorus)
The perfect gift came down from heaven,
The Son of God born on the earth;
The Prince of Peace, the King of Jacob,
Became a babe of humble birth.

The shepherds kneeling, the angels singing,
Give praises to the infant Lord.
The Father's glory shines round about them;
The love of God that night outpoured.

(Chorus)

His beaming star stood above the manger,
It led the wise men from the East;
They fell and worshipped, and then presented
Their gifts to Jesus, King and Priest.

(Chorus)

Christmas In July

It is no wonder why
Oh happy day in July
When I sing of peace and love and joy
I of’t recall the birth of Mary’s baby boy
Born that first Christmas day when angels did proclaim
“O Earth, to you, a savior born; Jesus is His name.”

Oh joyous day in July
When yards turn brown and get too dry
I read again the story Bibles tell
Not like the Christmas advertisers sell
I know a time angels to shepherds came
And sang, “…a savior born; Jesus is His name.”

Oh festive July day
When I take time to pray
I am glad the Christmas spirit still remains
As I lift my voice with sweet angelic refrains
Christmas came years ago from heaven above
God’s gift given; precious Jesus, wrapped with love.

I Wonder

I wonder what the people thought
Who did not know the prisoner's name;
So many men had staggered by
In public solitude and shame,
What was He more than other men
Who'd walked outside the walls to die,
And those with tears who followed Him--
Do not most dead leave some who cry?

I wonder what the children thought,
Who just a few short days before
Had waved palm branches in the street,
Crying, "Hosanna, to the Lord!"
Why was the kindest man they knew,
Who understood their ways and needs,
Bearing a cross through Jerusalem
Like those who did unrighteous deeds.

I wonder what the soldiers thought
Who rudely mocked a silent king;
How many flogged and tortured so
Had never spoken anything?
Was only one of all who stood 
On guard for Rome to watch Him die 
Able to say with contrite heart,
"This is God's Son; He did not lie."

I wonder what the women thought,
The ones who would not hide in fear
But followed even to the cross
To watch him die through veils of tears.
Did they not know that He could take
Their dreams safely through death with Him
And on the third day rise again
Triumphant over death and sin.

I wonder what we would have thought
In our self-righteous ignorance;
What role would you or I have played,
If we had known such circumstance?
Would I have been a Pharisee,
Or just a stranger passing by,
Herod, Pilate, a Roman guard,
Or a Mary on the day Christ died?

Behind the Mask

You’ve got blood on your wrist
Never unclenching your fist 
Looking the enemy in the eye 
Fighting until you die

We always look to those who wear the mask
Longing for the impossible task 
Chasing the safety you think you deserve
Looking for the people who will serve

When the gunshot fires
You’re always blaming the liars
You trust in your pride
But these sins you just can’t hide
So you put on your mask
Facing the impossible task

Why is it that we fight for this country’s pride
Ignoring all the broken souls who’ve died
We hold on to what we believe
But inside we truly deceive 

We always look to those who wear the mask
Longing for the impossible task 
Chasing the safety you think you deserve
Looking for the people who will serve

Trying to save our family name 
Hoping things will stay the same
We watch our brothers die
We watch our mothers cry
All so we can hold on to our lie

Through the blood sweat and tears
We hold on to our heroes through the years 
You say the power is within yourself
To heal from the pain you’ve felt 
You say you can earn your salvation
But the only thing you earn is your damnation 

We always look to those who wear the mask
Longing for the impossible task 
Chasing the safety you think you deserve
Looking for the people who will serve

There is a hole in your heart
It’s been broken from the start
You know you can’t live through this pain
You know you’re going insane 
You’re looking in all the wrong places
Trusting in all the wrong faces

Before you start your war
Let me tell you the answer you’re looking for
There’s only one trail
That will lead us from hell
Please hear what I have to say
Jesus Christ is the only way

We always look to those who wear the mask
Longing for the impossible task 
Chasing the safety you think you deserve
Looking for the people who will serve

God Will

God Will
By Nate Spears
Published 2010 in Inspiration 2 Smile by Nate Spears



When the most difficult times arrive
God will get you by 
When your down to you last penny 
God will stick with you
When it seems impossible 
God want let it stop you
Keep strong faith; strong faith will make it hard 
For any weapon formed against you
That weapon shall not commence you
Faith in GOD is nice
Don't give up
Just trust 
Enclose your palms
Spiritual blessing will combust 
When evil's fired your way
God will make your day.

Fear Not

Jesus is faithful to His own,
He sits upon the Throne.
It is to Him that we belong.

Keep your eyes focused on Jesus.
Only He can help us,
He is the one who can save us.

Jesus will not leave you alone,
Shine Your, light through the Word.
So, agape love might be shown.

It is Jesus that protects us,
Our rock and foundation.
There's no one like Jesus.

Fear not for the I Am with you.
Fear not be kind and true.
Fear not and let your light so, shine.
A witness to mankind. 

These are lyrics to a song placed on U-Tube but somewhat refraised...

Next In Line

It seems like the night is so dark
When no one knows who you are
In the grass you look at the stars
Trying to find out who you are

You long for the love between your hips
Dreaming of the perfect kiss
You’re praying that he’ll call you mine
But you’re just the next in line 

Your heart is so deeply broken
Finding anything to put your hope in
Searching till the end of time
Trying to leave your past behind

Every girl dreams of that perfect wedding
You blindly hope that that’s the direction you’re heading
You’re praying that you’ll find the place where you belong
But every time love has proven you wrong

You long for the love between your hips
Dreaming of the perfect kiss
You’re praying that he’ll call you mine
But you’re just the next in line

Whenever you find a guy to trust
He breaks you with his lust
Whenever you find the strength to stand
You get shoved into the sand

When the pants go to the floor
You’re always called the whore
When someone looks you in the face
You feel like a disgrace 

You long for the love between your hips
Dreaming of the perfect kiss
You’re praying that he’ll call you mine
But you’re just the next in line

How do you fix a broken heart
Where can you find a new place to start
Is there a place to send your pain
Will someone ever call your name

When the pain stabs you like a knife
There’s one person that can save your life
When the world shows nothing but hate
Jesus Christ will change your fate

You long for the love between your hips
Dreaming of the perfect kiss
You’re praying that he’ll call you mine
But you’re just the next in line

Many Questions, One Answer

The bills, the pain, the drama, the rain
The storm grows larger and floods your brain 
With thoughts that begin to drive you insane
 Like, if I trust God will it all go away?
What am I missing? Empathy? Faith?
What will happen if I stay on this pace?
Am I one of those people that God can replace?
If I don’t change now is it hell I face?
Could we all be afraid of meeting our fate?
All these years trying to find someone to relate..
Is it true you can fall victim of a time and a place?
If I pray hard enough can I erase [pause]
The anger, the envy, resentment and hate ?
or at 25 years old could I be too late?
To try and change my life to get a new slate
And chills cover my arms and my heart begins to race
All of a sudden I can’t hear any rain
Laughter replaces the fear that remained 
and God lets us know it will all be ok
Forgive those around you and thank God for each day
Think with your heart and in Gods you will stay.

Armageddon Pt 1

It's bout to get worse
It was written in the verse
The truth hurts
ARMAGEDDON WILL NOT BE TELEVISED

When the time comes
No one's gonna hold up a sign
saying it's time to "get right"
It's gone come like a thief in the night!
Blowin' up and wreckin ish!
The war you want is the war you gone get
It was written before our time
We keep looking at the signs
manifest before our very eyes
constantly denying our right
to be one of the meek ones of our time
ARMAGEDDEON WILL NOT BE TELEVISED

We're at the end of what used to be existence
Every super power will answer to a higher power 
so pray repentence
The time is closer than any distance
From Washington to Obama
No one will escape the wrath!
Hope you choose the right path!
Narrow is the gate of the righteous tracks
that are imprented on the mind of the omnipotent one
Will you be spared life on earth with the meek ones
and accurately take in knowledge of his son?
OR will you perish in the dust
never to be awakened again?
No consciousness of sin
ARMAGEDDON WILL NOT BE TELEVISED!

It's in the verses
Read it, see it, live it, rehearse it
You see the times changing
You see the minds fading
You see the world and how messed up it is
You see that nigga satan and his curses!
I pray to have a chance to live a beautiful paradise on earth like it say in the verses!
ARMAGEDDON WILL NOT BE TELEVISED

YOU HAVE OFFICIALLY BEEN WARNED

For You And Me

It  was  for you and me ,
That Jesus left His throne,
Bore the scourge and agony,
Shivered His flesh and bone,

It was for you and me,
He took the awry tour,
Towards the dreaded Calvary,
Summed His tortured  hours,

It was for you and me,
That Jesus bore the cross,
Paid the greatest penalty,
That death supposed be ours,

It was for you and me,
He wailed the gloomiest cry,
It was for you and me,
Jesus was nailed to die,

Oh, that you and I may see,
Our wickedness beyond measure,
Jesus to set us free,
In our stead bore the torture,

His love mysterious great,
Knocks  the door of all men's heart,
His mighty power recreates,
Renews our lives whole to restart,

It was for you and me,
When on the third day death sufficed,
The savior left His grave,
Victorious he arised,

He rose back to His throne,
Sitting by His Father's side,
Prepare! He's coming soon,
Today is to decide,

Heavens Rain

Heavens Rain
By Nate Spears
Published 2013 in “Death OF A Rose” By Nate Spears

Will the heavens rain
Wash away my sores
My sorrows
My no mores
 
Will the heavens rain
Grant me a smile
I’ll die to see a golden rainbow 
Piercing the clouds
 
It wasn’t my call
So why does it has to be my destruction?
Will the heavens rain 
Shower me an answer
Or will I
Die from thirst?

How Can I Give Jesus Everything That He Deserves?


How can I give Jesus everything that He deserves?
How can I repay Him for His time?
Three long hours he spent upon the Cross of Calvary
That you and I might live eternally.

How can I give Jesus everything that He deserves?
Gold and silver slip right through my hands.
All I have to offer Him is my thanksgiving prayer—
With Jesus, I am rich beyond compare.

He loves me though I’m a sinner,
And He purchased me with all his blood and pain,
And it makes me feel so humble—
His loss upon the Cross became my gain.

How can I give Jesus everything that He deserves?
His suffering and tears have washed me clean.
Forgiving me for all the evil wickedness I’ve done—
Thank God for giving me His only Son.

Emmanuel

A royal King was born, Emmanuel --
Down by His manger men and angels fell;
But he did not within a palace dwell,
Instead he came to save our souls from hell.

The years had passed and death was coming nigh;
He bore His cross while Mary softly cried:
What pain to watch her Son so slowly die,
While wishing Him a tearful last goodbye.

A mother's tears no words could ever tell --
As one by one at Jesus' feet they fell:
What pain to watch her Son so slowly die,
While wishing Him a tearful last goodbye.

Three Rusty Spikes

It wasn't three spikes,
Keeping Jesus on the cross;
But His incomparable love,
Caused Him to bleed;

On Golgotha's Hill He took,
 All my sin and dross;
After crying " it is finished",
From sin I'm freed.

He Is

He is the Alpha and the Omega:
     Who is, and Who was, and Who is to come!
  He is the Beginning and the End -
      Ruler and High Priest in God's kingdom.
  He is the Bright Morning Star,
      The Root of David - the True Vine:
  He is the Branch of The Lord;
      The Fruit, the Bread and the Wine

He is Lord of lords - King of kings;
      Liberator, the Author and Perfector of Life:
  He is the Foundation, the Pillar,
      The Capstone in peace, the Rock in strife.
  He is the Son, the Lamb of God,
      The Word and Hope of eternal salvation!
  He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
      The Pride and Glory of God's creation

He is the Christ, the Word made Flesh,
      The Promised One, the Seed of Abraham:
  He is the righteous Man of Sorrows,
      The New Covenant, the Passover Lamb.
  He is the Truth! The Way! The Light!
      The Redeemer, the Mediator, and the Rabbi:
  He is the Bridegroom, the Teacher,
      The Anointed One of the Most High

He is the Life and the Resurrection,
      The Food of Life, Victual in the dearth:
  He is the Prince of Peace, King of Zion,
      Whose throne is here on Earth.
  He is the Exalted and Forever Praised,
      The Good Shepherd, the Deliverer of sins!
  He is the Messiah, the Saviour,
      When His reign in Jerusalem begins

He is the Risen, the First and Last,
      The Son of David! Son of God! Son of Man!
  He is the Rejected and Betrayed
      In God's great and everlasting plan.
  He is my Strength! My Faith! My Judge!
      My High Tower! My Refuge! And my Shield!
  He is the Eternal Lamp of Heaven,
      And by His grace will I not yield

Christmas 2013

Once again Christmas Season draws near,
And our thoughts are fastened to the manger.
As the Christmas story you shall rehear,
Be ever thankful that Jesus is no stranger.

As we celebrate this day in late December,
It isn't all ribbons and trees with sparkly gloss.
Let none be too busy or hesitant to remember,
Jesus' birth was in preparation for the cross.

We pause from busyness that we pursue,
To direct to "Souper" friends for whom we care.
The warmest of greetings from us to you,
A Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.

One Hundred

One Hundred
By Nate Spears


One hundred percent has been missing 
Since one hundred percent of the beginning
A large percent has been given
A large percent has vanished

Which leads me to think
The fool isn’t played
The fool is in living
Adam was the fool
For the rib he was giving
To his wife,
Starving generations with sin 
In life

In a world of hard times
The snake rule will end
Head less; or heart less
Without it; regardless
You’re dead
On this earth we stand
As is in heaven
Amen.

Pledge Not The Allegiance

It's the third verse,
I got the urge to purge
All the curt words I've splurged,
I've submerged in sin,
I'll go to church repent,
Then go curse again,
Lets reverse this trend
We nurse tolerance,
When it might offend,
If I white wash my fence,
So try to not get tense,
When I do not defend, 
Those who chose to be dense
And not use their two cents,
To show kids the reverence,
For the pledge of allegiance.

Among the Worst of Them

You close your eyes at night
Trying to escape this never ending fight 
You chase your dreams
Wishing everything wasn’t what it seems 
But you can’t escape
This hopeless fate 

I may not know who you are or where you’ve been
But I know I’m among the worst of them
You say there’s no one that can change you now
But I know I’m among the worst of them
	
Those voices inside
Oh how they lie
But with every whisper 
Oh how you wanna die
This addiction is always getting you
Inside there’s nothing you can do

I may not know who you are or where you’ve been
But I know I’m among the worst of them
You say there’s no one that can change you now
But I know I’m among the worst of them

No matter how much you scream
You’re never waking from this evil dream
You do everything you can to escape
Before salvation is too late

The world’s judgments
Are so much more than permanent
You seek for any kind of help
But they’ll never understand what you’ve felt 
Is there anyone out there for you
Or is love too good to be true

I may not know who you are or where you’ve been
But I know I’m among the worst of them
You say there’s no one that can change you now
But I know I’m among the worst of them

I was a sinner destined for hell
Never knowing how far I fell
But then I was saved by God above
And I want to show you heaven’s love 
No matter how long it takes
Through all your mistakes
I want to show you it’s never too late

 I may not know who you are or where you’ve been
But I know I’m among the worst of them
You say there’s no one that can change you now
But I know I’m among the worst of them

Quiet

Moments of quiet unfolding:
Quiet probing my spirit's depths, 
Like a rose, petals unfolding
To drink in the dawn's sweet breath.
Quiet like the peace that lingered
O're the waters the Master stilled;
Quiet that in the tomb trembled,
Pregnant, waiting to be fulfilled.
Quiet that marched on the victor
Robbing death and defeating sin;
Quiet that stood in the garden
And shouted, "Christ risen again!"
Quiet that is the cloak wrapping
God the Father, Spirit and Son,
Before whom life's vulgar turmoil
Surrenders her tongue and is dumb.

Little Shopper Girl (for Deborah's Contest)

Note: To the tune of "Little Drummer Boy"


Come, they sold me, to Macy’s this year
The perfect gifts await for holiday cheer

I’ll push and shove my way through the crowd
Cuss if I don’t succeed, for crying out loud

Stomp on feet of shoppers with my heels
Clear a path to line's front as everyone reels

Bent o’er in pain they grouse, “Who is this cruel witch?”
And I scream back to them in a very high pitch

To reach fine gifts I create travesty
Then single-handedly grab the last Nativity

Baby Jesus is smiling at me
What have I done to find Thee
Done to find Thee

Sadly, I glimpse back at those I’ve attacked
And hand the manger scene to one farther back

The truest gift we find is not on the shelves
We’ll never find this gift within our lost selves

If we forget to share the holiday joys
With shopping schemes and ill-conceived ploys

Make way for kinder shoppers courteously
To find the greatest gift called humanity

Just leave the shops behind and visit your church
And bow before His grace from the pew as you perch

Baby Jesus is smiling at me
For now I’ve found Thee
Now I’ve found Thee

Your Rose

Lord, I would be like Your own sweet Rose
When underneath the world's vain rush
I have been bruised; a wounded thrush,
Whose song is trapped within its throat,
Who cannot lift to voice one note
Its weary head and sorrow knows.

Though I be trampled 'neath the throngs
Of grasping, pleasure seeking souls
And waves of pain high in me roll,
I would be crushed in silence, deep,
That even my inmost soul would keep
And whisper not of how was wronged.

But ever, as with vengeance black,
They tramp the petals, limp and torn,
Would send forth fragrance, sweet and warm,
And bless the feet of that mad crowd,
Beneath their onslaught remain bowed
And by Your love turn hatred back.

It was Your wounding, sacred Rose,
The fragrance of Your love for me
Blown by the winds of infamy
Down from that dark hill, Calvary,
That brought Your passion home to me
And feeds the flower which in me grows.

Sun and Moon

God is perfect in all things he creates
shining his love from the very first day
The sun and the moon he set up high 
they pour light to be our guide
Gods light he puts in my heart 
without him I wouldn't feel whole
When he returns all see his face gleam bright 
coming to carry us to our home on high
I can only imagine what heaven will be
the glorious colors, lights, and souls to meet
Sun and moon no more needed
The Almighty and Jesus Christ is the glow that will be

Waiting

Shadows lengthen, the landscape dims,
And all that was my rising sun
Is drifting out beyond the rim
Of life's elusive horizon.
So many times my footsore soul
Has traveled following that light,
Pursuing the ever moving goal
That sinks into a sea of night.
Seething waves leap in the blackness;
Their crashing drowns my feeble cry.
With hope deferred, Fear and Madness,
Hard on my heels, snap evil lies.
I cannot voyage on alone;
No craft can weather such a sea!
I wait. I face the dark unknown
Till God brings daybreak back to me.

EASTER IS COMING

I can love you like a butterfly
be so soft as a gentle breeze
cause I'm not threatened by a tone
or criticism's contagious disease
I grieve for you like an orphan
a child scared and oh so afraid
You lash out into the darkness
my tongue will remain stayed

Long ago you saw the beauty
your spirit carried on wings
Loved to ponder life's essence
sought peace above all things
But difficulty arose one day
remember your fateful choice
To be blinded by circumstance 
sadly lose your lover's voice

Now with words you seek to hurt
but that sword has no effect on me
Because once I was the blind man
that blindness took me to Calvary
Between you and me hung Jesus
On my cross I finally saw the light
I'm forgiven.. Easter is coming
I now can love instead of fight!

*Dedicated to all the crazy uncles at the family reunion.

Song In The Air

I like to sing there's a song in the air
There's a vastness all glowing as stars in the sky
I hear mother's sweet loving prayer
Behind her thus I hear a baby's low Cry!
Up in the sky the stars rain its fire with a beautiful song
Within the glowing manger of Bethlehem there in a 
cradle is a King!

There's an enormous of joy 
For the wondrous birth
All people praise the Virgins sweet baby boy
Tis' the Lord of our earth!
So the star reigns its fiery light as the beautiful sing
Now in the manger adorns Bethlehem cradles a King!

Up in the sky all glitters a star
Lie the angels impearled
They rejoice beauty of a song from a far
They swept all through the world
On every hearth is inflame for the beauty to sing
In every ones home through all nations that Jesus is King!

The angels all sing into daylight
As we all take part in tune with thus song
The songs sings through the night
Within the heavenly throng
As ye shall shout with the lovely angels as they will bring
To meet and greet in his cradle our Savior and glorious King!

Tree Sorrow

Earth's trees are pruned; men came and left
Upon their branches burning scars;
Now their arms are piteous stubs
No longer reaching for the stars.
My heart is wounded watching them,
So public is their grief and loss,
Their shame exposed, yet mute they stand:
I think of Jesus on the cross.

2012 Christmas Wish

That each child would be more aware,
What Christmas is truly about.
It shouldn't be just bows and ribbons,
On gifts that make them shout.

It shouldn't be a story of Santa,
Decked out in most every strip mall.
That enters down the chimney,
Bringing presents to one and all.

It shouldn't merely be a gathering,
Randomly seated on Christmas morn,
Exchanging gifts and idly chatting,
Thinking little that Jesus was born.

It isn't just about a manger scene,
An event that brought Heavens loss.
While we celebrate Jesus' virgin birth,
It's always been about the cross. 
            Jesus Loves You

Or am I christian who cant have fun
because I know hun its wrong to drink coke and rums
till i am drunk and wait for the ring to get buns
then go condemn kids with weed and pokemon

And its sad to think this what our kids believe
cause this what they preach on the MTV
and  their  heart beat beats to each tweet and re-tweet
till a pick leaks online then they move on to vines

HIGH CALLING



I HEAR A VOICE CALLING MY NAME
SOMEHOW STRANGE YET SO FAMILIAR
IN THE SOUND OF IT I SENSE NO BLAME

NO SWEETER VOICE THIS HEART HAS EVER HEARD
PURE LOVE IS IN IT SPOKEN
THIS HUNGRY SOUL FEEDING ON EVERY WORD
TRUE LIFE IS THROUGH IT GIVEN

OH SOUL TO BE SATISFIED JUST BE STILL
AND HEAR THE DIVINE VOICE SPEAK AT HIS WILL
SO THIS EMPTY BEING GOD'S SPIRIT MAY FLOOD
THAT ALL WHO PASS BY MAY SEE
I'M COVERED IN MY SAVIOR'S BLOOD
WHOSE LOVE IS REFLECTED IN ME

Colours

Blue-gray the barren mountains of Moab
At dusk . . . a tour bus winds its way
Up to Jerusalem, City of God, from Tel Aviv.
How one feels, the emotion, is difficult to convey;
The very mold of earth, contours of land,
Grip my heart and I feel a rising tide of tears
Sting my eyes. I am assaulted by colors, manifold
And magnificent, that tantalize, pierce
My inner being.  The colors of humanity's face
In multiple tones and shades of brown: pecan
Mahogany, cinnamon, hazelnut,
Walnut, bisque, ebony and tan;
I see eyes of most unusual hues,
The colors of sea mist, celery, black, pale jade,
Olive bark, tiger's eye, leaf of blue sage.
This ancient land . . . world religions on parade
In conflict claiming holy sites, the Temple Mount 
The ultimate, golden prize.  I walk for days
Treasuring the feel of this earth beneath my feet,
Tramping dusty brown paths and secret ways
In this place where Jesus lived and died.
I bend beneath close gray rocks to gaze
Upon His birthplace in humble Bethlehem - a cave;
I mark the stations of the cross where His love blazed
In flames of blood red, marking His lonely, crowded path
From scourging trial to Golgotha's skull marked hill;
And there He offered up His pure white heart
Humanity's black sin to cover and my poor soul to fill.

A Christmas Dream

Over the blasts of mortar shells,
He heard the sound of jingle bells;
And when he closed his tired eyes,
He got a Christmas Day surprise.

Snow was fall’n and his boy was call’n:
“Daddy, can we go down now?
I think it’s clear, Santa’s been here
And Daddy got home some how.
We are a family, Daddy, Mom and me
On this Christmas Day;
I’m with you, my wish came true,
The one to Baby Jesus I did pray.”

From across the world, so far away,
In a foreign land on Christmas Day;
Sleeping with his fatigues still on,
His boy’s voice was a Christmas song.

Snow was fall’n and his boy was call’n:
“Daddy, can we go down now?
I think it’s clear, Santa’s been here
And Daddy got home some how.
We are a family, Daddy, Mom and me
On this Christmas Day;
I’m with you, my wish came true,
The one to Baby Jesus I did pray.”

Please remember our service heroes,
Scattered throughout the world,
As we celebrate with our families,
The good will they hope to build.

He woke up to a flash of light,
And screams resounding in the night;
He charged forward to help his peers;
With his son’s voice ringing in his ears.

Snow was fall’n and his boy was call’n:
“Daddy, can we go down now?
I think it’s clear, Santa’s been here
And Daddy got home some how.
We are a family, Daddy, Mom and me
On this Christmas Day;
I’m with you, my wish came true,
The one to Baby Jesus I did pray.”

I MADE ROOM FOR JESUS

The window to my broken past
     Has shattered.
I have walked into the dreams
     That seemed so far away.
The fog has lifted, I have sifted
     Through the things that mattered.
Finding nothing left of yesterday.

'Cause I made room for Jesus in my life.
     He helps me with my worries and my strife.
I pray to him each day, for guidance on my way.
     Yes, I made room for Jesus in my life.

The cries of loneliness have turned
     To laughter.
The wind has carried me above
     The sea I drifted on.
I live again, he's my best friend.
     There's no more looking after,
The lost an lonely man, for he is gone.
    
'Cause I reached out for Jesus with my hand.
     I knew he'd be the one to understand,
His spirit entered me, I felt so calm and free.
     'Cause I reached out for Jesus with my hand.

The road is rocky but he's there
     To listen,
As I move ever closer to
     The love within his heart.
The days are bright, I see the light.
     My eyes begin to glisten,
With the love and faith that Jesus can impart.

Oh, I made room for Jesus, can't you see.
     And Jesus, he has lots of room for me.
I pray to him each day, For guidance on my way.
     Oh, I made room for Jesus can't you see.

Oh The Blood

Oh the blood at Calvary's cross
Shed for me, His life it cost
What sacrifice of love I see
At the cross of Calvary.

Oh the blood at Calvary's cross
Jesus won there Satan lost
What sacrifice, what victory
At the cross of Calvary.

My Song

The price demanded was the highest ever
to ransom my lost, dying soul from hell;
yet, He paid it all, without a murmur.
God's wondrous grace for me let this song tell.

Chorus:
A life of hope is mine because of Jesus;
He gave me joy I never could afford,
opened my eyes to view His splendor
and brought me peace, sweet peace, God's peace.

His life was offered up, the sweetest savor,
love's sacrifice, sin's awful cost was paid;
I cannot tell why my Jesus loved me,
I only know He died my soul to save.

Chorus repeat.

IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME

"It Should Have Been Me"

      James Williams









Peter:  How could I let this ever be

To deny you at your feet

and then turn around and walk away

When I was the one

Who stood on your name

And When I was asked, " do I know you?"

Three times I denied you the same

It should have been me

On that day 

taken away with thee Lord 

It should have been me

It should have been me

On that cross

Dying for the cost 

I know Lord It should have been me.



Judas:  Lord I betrayed thee

at the drop of a dime

I placed a kiss on your face

With deception in my mind

Lord Why did I betray you

For 30 pieces of silver

And to know that you still love me

My life I don't deserve

It should have been me

On that day 

taken away with thee Lord 

It should have been me

It should have been me

On that cross

Dying for the cost 

I know Lord It should have been me.



ME:    Father please forgive my sins

For the pain has set in

You have shown your love to me

Over and over again

I don't deserve your mercy 

I don't deserve your grace

I don't deserve the sacrifice that you made

It should have been me

On that day 

taken away with thee Lord 

It should have been me

It should have been me

On that cross

Dying for the cost 

I know Lord It should have been me.



It was you who and died on Calvary

to save and set my spirit free

Upon that cross you hung for me

And Lord

It should have been me.

Here In This Place



If Jesus walked through those doors today
Would you have a kind word to say?
Would you need more proof?
Would you be loving one another
Or judging your brother
In what you think to be the truth?

Well, Jesus is here in this place
I can see Him in your face
You are a temple in His Kingdom
He lives in all who believe.

If Jesus came and sat down by you
Would you be thinking what else you had to do?
Would you give Him place?
Would you be embarrassed to praise His name
Cry Holy and thank Him He came?
Would you know His face?

'We don't want to miss our blessin'
Lord, help us learn this lesson.
Open up our eyes and let us see.
Help us 'love one another'
Don't let us judge our brother
Before we talk about another
Set us free...
'Cause Jesus lives in all who believe'

Well, Jesus came through those doors today
He waits to hear what you have to say
In that neighbor next to you.
Will you choose to do the Father's will
Or sit in your seat very still
Knowing Jesus sits so close to you?

Now, Jesus is here in this place
Can you see Him in my face?
I am a temple in His Kingdom
And He lives in all who believe...
Yes, We are the Temple in His Kingdom
He lives in all who believe...

Jesus came through those doors today...

Each Time We Go A Stray

I know He'll guide
our feet
I know He'll light
our way
I know He'll gently
lead us back
Each time we go a
stray

There are times in
life we stumble
We falter and we
fail
We feel that no one
understands
We feel that no one
cares

We start to go our
own way
We question God and
cry
We wonder what's the
point of life
Why should we even
try

We know we shouldn't
look at
The places from our
past
But it's right there
in Jesus hands
Our burdens we
should cast

He tells us in His
Holy Word
He's always by our
side
He'll never leave us
lonely
But with us will
abide

If only we'll rely
on Him
Through each and
every day
We'll be surrounded
by his love
And hear Him gently
say

My child, I'll guide
your feet
And I will light
your way
I'll gently lead you
back to Me
Each time you go a
stray

I Come To Be

This is how I came to be,
Born into sin and iniquity.
The fall of man, the sin of the earth,
Yet Jesus gives me new birth.

This is how I come to be,
Bitter and angry when someone hurts me.
The love I once felt turns to hate.
I fall into addiction to escape.

This is how I come to be,
Overcome with shame, on my knees.
Guilt and condemnation overwhelm my soul
But God says, “I will restore and make you whole.”

This is where I come to be,
Once again, down on my knees.
Bowing before a gracious God,
So thankful, amazed and awed.

This is where I dream to be,
Where streets of gold are all I see.
My life here on earth is done,
And Jesus shines brighter than the sun.

Nathan's Song

*Nathan's Song

Nathan loved to be playin' baseball
Talk with his friends everytime they'd call
He would rather be doing for others---any day.
Nathan loved the lake in the Summer,
Skiing in winter--one slope or other.
He was full of life and had an easy goin' way.

Nathan loved to eat Mexican food,
Jelly beans, when he was in the mood.
He would rather wear his flip-flops than shoes--everyday.
Nathan loved dogs and playin' guitar,
All kinds of music--he was a star!
His heart was full of love and he showed it every way.

You were my joy...You were my joy...
You were my joy...You were my boy.

Nathan loved to laugh and be funny,
His impish grin was on the money:
He dressed up like a 'Sugar Daddy' at school that day.
Nathan loved his family and friends
Especially one girl---to the end...
And his death was full of life by what he gave away.

Though he's gone from our presence, he walks with Jesus hand in hand
And now, up in Heaven, Jesus says, "Well Done, Nathan...

You are my joy...You are my joy...
You are my joy...You are my boy."

by Deborah Burch

For: PD's contest of sorrows and make you cry poem

*Note: Nathan was a senior in high school 6 years ago, the son of my BFF. He was killed in a MVA; his girlfriend was driving, ran a stop sign and a tractor trailer truck hit them broadside on Nathan's side of the car. The other 3 in the car lived...as did the driver of the truck...he had just talked to his mom on the cell phone--which was never found...I wrote this as a song and sang it for them as my gift...It doesn't end there:
Nathan was an organ donor. Many lives have been saved because Nathan donated all he had left to give--the gift of life. This year his Mom will get to meet the recipients and they intern meet her...She, with the Red Cross, hold Blood Drives each year in Memory of Nathan: 'One Love Blood Drive'...This poem is dedicated to Nathan, and to the awareness that we can all save lives...
Donate blood...and be an organ donor...be someone's joy. love,deb

Raising holy hands up unto the sky, we praise thee Lord Jesus whom is glorified!
As heirs to the promise onward we forge, children of covenant upon eternal shores.
Confessing salvation in “The Word” now conceived: a path for tomorrow that‘s truly free!
Divine in direction as the Holy Ghost leads, no more to sorrow in Gods' love now retrieved…

                           And sanctifi - - ied, sanctifi - - ied, sanctifi - - ied:

                           sanctified unto true holiness.

                           blood redeemed out of this world that has fallen… 

Casting off life’s worries in Gods' peace to abide, justified freely by grace sanctified.
Through redemption in Christ Jesus ransom is paid, His Holy Spirit now leads the way!
Communed in a holy transition beyond-ward to soar, finding a gladness unknown before.
Becoming the reflection of our Savior adored, lost in unspeakable happiness forevermore..!

Song of the Troubadour

A troubadour came by my house;
Beneath my window he did sing.
I'd never heard such melody
Or listened to like lyrics ring.
He sang a song I understood,
A song of love for me alone;
And , gazing through the latticed frame,
I knew that I would be his own.

The haunting strains, they wound their way,
Even before I could resist,
My heart was bound by cords of love;
Forever to his song I'd list.
"I long to follow you." I cried,
"Fair, wand'ring minstrel, gay and free;
I want to be your gypsy bride
And sing sweet songs of love with thee."

He bade me follow with a look--
A look my tongue cannot describe--
So tender that my heart leaped up.
"I'll follow you! Oh, yes!" I cried.
T was then I saw, just as I turned 
To go with love forevermore,
What I had thought a laurel wreath
Was but a crown of thorns he wore.

The robe which from his shoulders hung--
It had seemed spotless, white as snow;
But, then I saw it stained with blood.
Yet, still with him I longed to go.
His feet and hands were bruised and torn;
"Oh, who had wounded one so good!"
Just then I saw the lute he played
Was but a rugged cross of wood.

"Oh, Love!" I cried, "Dear, fairest one,
Who dared to harm and hurt you so!"
And then I heard the song again...
"It was for you; did you not know?"
"For me? I do not understand;
T was just today I heard your song."
He turned to speak what now I know.
"My love," he said, "I called you long."

We sing the song together now;
Each day is but a new refrain.
Yet, still I marvel when I hear
A note of joy wrung out of pain.
I did not know when first I heard
His music calling to my heart
That love is not triumphant
Till wounded, pierced and torn apart.

MORE THAN UNUSABLE DUST

Sometimes it’s hard for us to understand that firmly we can stand with in our creator’s hands.  And if we open our eyes we will be able to see his unfold plans that show us that with his son Jesus, we can be more than unusable dust, but we have to be willing to place within him our complete trust. Oh and our Lord knows the heart he placed in us sometimes makes it easy to give in to giving up when things are just so rough and it seems like the pages of our lives are far to torn, and inside our worn down minds we cannot fully comprehend his gift to us of being re-born, and if we open our eyes we can see that inside his hands he has placed within us the secrets to his unfolded plans with in his word, and through his son Jesus we can be molded and shaped into something greater than being unusable dust,  yes I am more valuable than unusable dust, Oh through this journey of our life’s, if we are willing to open our eyes, we can come out of the darkness into light, and instead of hiding in the crowd shy and weak, wondering for answers and promises to prayers we seek will come true,  we will remember what you did for us on Calvary and we will shout your name, yes we will shout your name in victory, as you hold us in your hands, and share with us all your unfolded plans,  and as you draw us near and place within us a desire to know you and your son , Jesus we will see that we are far more valuable then unusable dust.

To save the world from sin

So many take for granted the things sent from above.
The mercies shown from Jesus our master of Love.
Have you ever stopped to think about the seeds He has sewn
The way the world acts today, you'd think they done it on their own.

Jesus died upon the cross , to save the world from sin.
have you ever stopped to think, or let Jesus in.
He's the master of all masters, the King of all Kings.
Alpha and Omega and the reason why I sing.

In this world were living in its hard to recognize
But theres one important thing that all must realize.
In the name of the father the Son and Holy Ghost 
Your sins will be forgiven if you let Jesus Be your Host.

All the way

When I got saved
Jesus saved me all the way
when He came into my heart
that fine day
The Holy spirit 
came in my soul to stay
when Jesus saved me 
he saved me all the way

I can stand right on my feet
and shout out loud
I don't care if its in front of a sinner crowd
I'm excited in my soul
and excited is how I'll stay
when Jesus saved me 
He saved me all the way

Jesus Shed His Blood For Me

VI.	There’s a savior who I know, who shed His blood for me.  For God so Loved the 
world, He gave His only son, and I believe in Him for He died on Calvary.  Jesus shed His 
blood for me.

CH.	Jesus shed His blood for me oh, cant you see.  On a cross He paid for my cost, He 
took away my sin.  Now I’m born again, Jesus shed His blood for me.

VII.	Could you imagine how He must have felt?  Those nails in His hands and one to 
His feet.  But He loved me so that He would set me free.  Jesus shed His blood for me.

Daddy Now Please Pray With Me

Daddy now, please pray with me,
for today I'm sailing stormy seas.
I know you say you're but a man,
who tries to live the Master's plan.

I'm weathering gray storms, except a few,
 and the turmoil would drown me, if not for you.
The wind is so strong, the waves are so high,
Tattered sails against the sky!

And I recall you telling me, 
of Jesus Christ,  Who calmed the seas.
And yes, small faith can the mountains move,
and how He died His love to prove.

So Daddy now, please pray with me,
to God's sweet Son, Who dwells in me.
For I am daughter of a man,
and weak at times and cannot stand
against these tides of shifting sands.

You say, "He's still upon His throne",
and with our prayers, I'm not alone!
And God is good and loves me still,
He will offer strength to swim these swells.

Oh Daddy now, please pray with me,
Some choices I made were not of Thee.
At times I've wandered and gone astray,
I feel somehow I've lost my way.

Tell me again my right hand he still holds, 
and how in heaven the streets are gold, and
once we're there no one is old because now 
Jesus holds my soul!

Daddy now please pray with me like when I 
was a child of three beside my bed on bended knees. 

And perhaps somehow these words I write, may move 
another to change their lives, for Jesus loves me this
I know and his blood has washed me white as snow. 

And when you've said "In Jesus Name" I feel brand 
new and not the same, so daddy now please pray with me
though I am grown and no longer three. 

He'll lift me up on wings of love and forgive me
of all the wrong's I'v done! Then I can drop my anchor
deep and mend white sails on peaceful seas!

ONE CAN BE AN ARMY WHEN HE MARCHES WITH THE LORD

The armor of the lord is never heavy on my back. 
The fight is not just one that's fought against the flesh and blood.
For I am armed with all his righteousness against attack.
Light will overcome the darkness as we march on through the mud.

One can be an army when he marches with the Lord.
One can be a symphony when striking heaven's chord.
One can be the victor over evil, hate, and lies.
For one who fights for truth is not alone in Jesus eyes.

The breastplate is the heart that beats God's love into the world.
Feet covered with the peace that we pursue in every man.
The shield of faith defends against the wickedness that's hurled.
The sword will speak the word that conquered all since time began.

One can be an army when he marches with the Lord.
One can be a symphony when striking heaven's chord.
One can be the victor over evil, hate and lies. 
For one who fights with truth is not alone in Jesus eyes.

There are reinforcements to be called on from above.
The cry for righteousness has always been an angel song.
Thank you father for the armor crafted with your love.
As I walk into the battle Lord, I pray that I am strong.

One can be an army when he marches with the Lord.
One can be a symphony when striking heaven's chord.
One can be the victor over evil, hate, and lies.
For one who fights with truth is not alone in Jesus eyes.

Virtue


Today's the day I can hear people talk
Jesus is coming...Lord help me walk
I'm so tired and weak and I look like chalk
But I must go
So many people here shouting and loud
I know He won't see me just one in the crowd
As I touched His hem He turned around
Oh God! He knows!

But I heard Jesus can heal me
Though tradition just won't let me
Get close enough or touch Him
I'm unclean
If I can make it through this crowd
Without getting knocked to the ground
Just get close enough   touch His hem
I know I'll be clean...

I couldn't hide as He looked for me
So I fell at His feet and told Him everything...

Lord for 12 long years I have suffered
First one doctor and then another
What they did to me would make you shudder
If you only knew
They took everything I had
And left me feeling twice as bad
Lord there's got to be something
That You can do

He said, "Daughter, you took a chance trusting Me...
Now live blessed for you're whole and clean"

And I know Jesus can heal you
So don't let tradition be stopping you
Just get close enough to touch His hem   and you
Will be clean...

God's Cinderella

My spirit wandered, sore, abused,
By selfish choices badly bruised;
A heart that stumbled through the years,
Lame from its sins and filled with fears.
The world with all its dreadful ills
Belabored my poor, weakened will
Till down death's path I made my start,
A little, lonely, lame-girl heart.

I lost my dreams amid the trash;
My expectations cruelly dashed,
I waited for the ogre Fate
To lower on my mean estate.
Then One came riding through the dark;
He labored over hope's dim spark
And fanned the embers to a flame;
He called my heart by a new name.

No longer go I lame through life,
Through lonely days of anxious strife;
My footsteps fall in steady pace
Upheld and firm by God's own grace.
I trust Him now to guide me till
I reach my home, God's perfect will.
I've peace since I made this new start
With God's glass slipper on my heart.

Hear my cries

Hear my cries
My tears see
Look down from the skies
and deep into me

I carry this pain
beyond my might and main
Of my faith am being drain
by mine own pain

This pain is deep
This pain in me
Even in my sleep
Lord i cry for thee

I need your  blood 
my pain to wash away
your love i need lord
Everynight and day

Many are times i cry
and shade many a tear
Many are times i try
to hide my firce fear

Hear my cries
My tears see
They are painted in the skies
They glitter in the sea

Someone, Someday

It’s so hard to start
It’s so hard to finish
It feels as if all that you've accomplished will someday be diminished 
And it won’t matter if you become somebody some day
Because someone will easily take your place 
Steal your ideas 
And make a living off you, THEIR way

It’s sad but true
Every mutha f**ka 
Will take a piece of your mind
and will somehow ultimately f**k you

not physically but mentally
making you think 
you’re not one of a kind
their getting all the fame 
while everyone leaves you behind

leaving you to feel like a failure 
people telling you to talk to God, 
he’ll have the answer

I pray, looking up at the ceiling
Hoping he’ll will give me a reason….
To keep going on with my life and my ideas
But all I’m left with are clones of my feelings
Washed up on canvases with some else’s fake veneers

Tell the Story

She called each one by name
Said, children, listen to me
I've a story to tell, a story
Of the One who came to Be

She held her youngest son
Began, with tears in her eye
He was the Father's only Son
He had not many, as do I.

In Bethlehem, so long ago
He was born one holy night
Immanuel, they called him
Who came to set things right.

As I have told you of Him
So you must tell the world
For at each heart, like yours
Satan's darts are hurled.

Immanuel, they called him
And He is with us still
Will you not tell of Him
That every heart be filled?


Note: This was a song written many years ago, titled Immanuel. All it took to turn it into a poem, was take 
off the chorus and change the title.

Chorus:
Immanuel, Immanuel, 
His name is Immanuel
The One who came to be
Immanuel, Immanuel,
God's love for you and me.

PRAY, WHERE CAN WISDOM BE FOUND

The price of wisdom is beyond rubies
Coral and jasper are not worthy of mention
It cannot be bought with the finest gold
Nor can its price be weighed out in silver	
There is a mine for silver
And a place where gold is refined
But wisdom is found in fearing the Lord
And to shun evil is understanding
For the LORD gives wisdom
From his mouth come knowledge and understanding

JOHN - THE BELOVED DISCIPLE


There was a man named John
who became Jesus best friend
he followed his pathway
going through every twist and bend

John left his father Zebedee
to follow the Jesus way
he went with Peter and James to Gethsemane
there to see Jesus go to pray

John’s mother was Salome
who requested John to sit at Jesus right side
in the new kingdom to come
was a real mark of her pride

John told many things of Jesus
throughout his gospel
acts of mercy and healing
words of love and comfort as well

Jesus great high priestly prayer
tells of praying for his own
John relates this in 17th of John
where God’s truth is clearly shown

John’s epistles were from his pen
teaching believers to live in love
as those who knew love divine
were clearly filled from above

John’s final piece of scripture 
is God’s final revelation
showing mans final destiny
which God planned before creation

Into Many Lifetimes

In this lifetime the bond is blood
But these wounds go back eons
We hurt at something seemingly small
But the game of pain 
Has a Great Fall of Fame
Into many lifetimes

Whether we choose to see what is
Our reality is this moment
Or taste disastrous recipes of loathing
The gift of the present is to forgive
As He forgave us
Into many lifetimes

If your promise was to show me pain
I felt the deep pangs of that sadness
And accept what is 
Let’s leave judgment at the doormat
Love requires integrity
Into many lifetimes

I choose forgiveness
For no person is innocent
Like water under the bridge
But when I stare at the water
It doesn’t seem to move
Into many lifetimes

To truly forgive is to allow Being
Release brings evaporation of rooted ego 
Forgiveness is the only way
The Truth and the Life
Created with cobblestones of love 
Into many lifetimes

I forgive myself for my shortcomings
I release my fears and disappointments
This lopsided backpack of pain is too heavy
I forgot I could put it down! 
As I walk the next path
Into many lifetimes

Grace

Striving for perfection comes with a price 
so it's true the higher you climb the more unforgiving people become, 
so I ask God let thy will be done not mines, 
I too felt like I was in the garden of Gethsemane in my life time, 
forced to make decisions about the people in it when their season was finished, 
am I tripping. That's what they said,
and my actions obviously led them to believe that this wasn't supposed to happen, 
kinda like how we who call ourselves believers or even devout saints 
weren't suppose to let sin be the reason we relapsed. Cut out the Holier than thou act 
truth is even those you idolize and pedestal are in rehab, 
everyone is struggling with something, 
so go ahead keep lying to yourself but note to self 
the first step is acceptance, accepting that you are far from right with God, you went left.
Go ahead repent, what the Holy spirit does that non believers or atheist will never get 
is that it shoots straight threw pride past your emotions and leaves a convicting spirit 
with the fear in your soul where you finally can admit and say "I'm not right" 
you see the biggest misconception about Christianity in the west, 
is that if you accept Jesus as your Lord and saviour then everything this world, 
these streets couldn't offer you he will and indeed bless you with the rest. 
But here's the truth, 
just because you came in class late you are not exempt from the test,
Hell, God made his self into a man, 
and because he saw no end to our ancestors wickedness, 
he deemed it necessary that the only way to redeem us was to give up himself for us. 
Now I'm no preacher, I don't even go to church 
so don't confuse me with any lay member, minister, or deacon just someone who kinda
knows the Holy script according to how the Catholic church saw fit to write it up. 
but here's the message. How can you, a finite flawed human being compete with his
perfection, you can't, stop trying he knows this, so start shooting for progression. 
Because no matter how good of a saint you try to be, 
you can't buy your way into Heaven. 
He paid the price you've been set free from bondage of the flesh. 
You got what you didn't deserve, 
he took what was coming to you and that's what we call grace.
So I guess my only other question to those who say only God can judge me, 
without Christ Jesus how you plan to beat the case...

Man from Nazareth

Andrew ran to Simon, Philip called his friend,
“Come and see the Holy One whose kingdom will not end.”

Brothers, James and John, sons of Zebedee,
overhauling fishing nets by the sea of Galilee.

See the man from Nazareth walk by the sea,
calling men to follow Him in a place called Galilee.

See how He beckons, calling you and me -
calling us to follow Him to a place in eternity.
                                                
Go and tell your neighbor the Savior has come.
point him now to Jesus before his day is done.

Tell how He saved you, made your life brand new.
point him now to Jesus before this day is through.

See the man from Nazareth walk by the sea,
calling men to follow Him in a place called Galilee.

See how He beckons, calling you and me -
calling us to follow Him to a place in eternity.

Infinite Bridge

The sweet Lamb of God
was born to be the bridge
spanning the gulf between destruction and peace;
I can only cross safely
because He paid the price,
demanded by justice for my soul's release.

Chorus:
No mountain was ever higher
than His cross of agony;
no gulf was ever wider
than the one crossed for me.
His steps never faltered
as Christ carried sin's load,
all alone
to atone
up Calvary's road.

His arms formed a bridge
between heaven and hell,
stretching so wide to bring deliverance by grace.
His arms carry me surely
across the deep divide;
His blood paid the ransom my sin to erase.

Chorus:
No mountain was ever higher
than His cross of agony;
no gulf was ever wider
than the one crossed for me.
His steps never faltered
as Christ carried sin's load,
all alone
to atone
up Calvary's road.

Bridge:
Infinite bridge,
Incarnate Lamb,
Jesus Christ Savior,
the eternal I AM.
I can only cross safely 
because He paid the price,
demanded by justice for my soul's release.

Days are lonely
No one else is around, but me only
Deprived of companionship
Rejected but not dejected, isolated...this life
His acceptance my solace

Enduring faith and hope in the Savior....my strength

Surviving on HIS mercy
Thriving on HIS favor
In HIS shelter I rest

Come And See

Come, see the garden tomb where Jesus lay,
Come, see His body is not there today!
Come, see the heavy stone He rolled away,
Come, see that Jesus is alive to stay!
He died upon Golgotha’s hill, all His blood for us He spilled,
And the heavens darkened as His Father would not hearken.
He paid the price that sinners can be free,
Now He’s alive, He’s won the victory!
Shout out the message loud and free:
Jesus rose for you and me, oh, my friend, please come and see!

Come, hear the hope we have that some glad day
We from the cold, dark ground will fly away!
Come, hear the message clear He gave to see:
“Death has been swallowed up in victory!”
We have a hope because He lives that to us one day He’ll give
A brand new body, perfect, holy, clean, and godly.
Oh, what a day that that is going to be
When we forever more from sin are free!
Shout out the message loud and free:
There is hope for you and me if we’ll only come and see!

These words written to “More.”

Crossing the Street

I stood beside life's thoroughfare
And watched the busy traffic there,
All swiftly passing to and from
Each in his self-made way to go.
Across the crowded road I spied
The lights of home on yonder side:
But how to cross? I dare not try,
A timid little one as I.
I could not take a single step,
For evil's tide would soon have swept
Me down its path to go astray,
A frightened child who lost the way;
And yet, the rush of traffic there
Made me to tremble, near despair.
I could not linger there for long,
The teeming mass was far too strong;
They reached to grasp me, pull me in
Stampeding down the road of sin.
I needed one who'd crossed before
To guide me to the other shore.
I cried out in my loneliness
For help to cross the wide abyss;
I had to find a faithful friend
To walk with me to journey's end.
I felt a hand enclose my own,
Although I thought I was alone;
Beside me stood the One I knew
Who would prove strong to see me through.
He's guiding me and all who dare
To walk with Him life's thoroughfare.
The path He takes crosses the tide
That sweeps the road from side to side.
It's hard to walk against the press
Of self and all unrighteousness,
But Jesus works to help me stay
Upon the straight and narrow way.
Someday, together, we will stand,
Who've walked with Jesus. hand in hand,
Upon that other happy shore
Where sin and sorrow are no more.
We'll know in fullness then the rest
That children find on mother's breast
When weary, frightened little feet
Have finally, safely crossed the street.

Despair Is a Barren Desert

Despair is a barren desert
And my naked feet know its sand;
Hope, a mirage in the distance,
Torments me with well watered land,
My tongue is parched and unruly,
Words of firm faith will not form;
Only a gut cry for mercy 
Cleaves the air of the stagnant morn.

Dear Christ of the desert places,
Come walk with me over this land;
Teach me the joy of denial
That makes roses bloom in the sand.
Walk with me here in my heartland
Where the fruit has dried on the vine,
Make streams flow across my desert;
Distill in my soul a new wine.

The Messiah

Yes I know what you've been told, 
 but my love for you will never grow old. 
Some people hate me. 
There are those who will try to debate me, 
but if you want to believe in me 
then prepare to be called crazy. 
'Cause I'm the man who's here to take you higher. 
You best believe baby, they call me the Messiah, 
  
I'm the Messiah! Hmmm. 
I'm the Messiah! Hmmm. 
I'm the Messiahhh! Hmmm. 
I'm here to take you higher. Hmmm. 
Whoa, I'm the savior! 
I'm here to save ya! 
I'm the Messiah! Wooo, hoo, hooo! 

I was born within a mangy, manger. 
Before I opened my eyes, my life was full of danger. 
I didn't even know what this life was all about. 
Had evil king who wanted to take me out. 
So my parents stashed me far away, 
So I can preach the word some fine, sunny day. Hey! 

I'm the Messiah! Hmmm. 
I'm the Messiah! Hmmm. 
I'm the Messiahhh! Hmmm. 
I'm here to take you higher. Hmmm. 
Whoa, I'm the savior! 
I'm here to save ya! 
I'm the Messiah! Wooo, hoo, hooo! 

No other God can stand before my grace. 
I told the devil to get up out my face. 
So many people want to take my place, 
But they fall to their knees once I give em a little taste 
of my word, 'cause I'm  the Lord. 
Whoa I'm the Messiah! Wooo, hoo, hooo! 

I was betrayed by one of the ones I loved. 
He didn't know, I knew who he was. 
He didn't even realize he had a hand in destiny. 
My destiny to be nailed to the cross on Calvary 
and when I died, the ground it shook like thunder 
I bet you then everyone began to wonder. 
  
Was he the Messiah? Hmmm. 
Is he the Messiah? Hmmm. 
Yes I am the Messiahhh! Hmmm. 
I'm here to take you higher. Hmmm. 
Whoa, I'm the savior! 
I'm here to save ya! 
I'm the savior, who died for your sins. 
I'm the savior who's here to take you higher 'cause 
I'm the Messiah! Wooo, hoo, hooo!

homecoming

 
The old man sat drinking his morning brew.
    Wondering what in the world he was going to do.
His savings were gone due to paying doctors and such.
   He didn’t want to bother his kids, that would be asking too much.
Life had really turned sour, it had taken on such a hellish theme.
   It seems that when he closed his tired old eyes, it was only bad things he’d see 
in those dreams.
As he sipped on his coffee he closed his hands, He said Lord what has 
happened I once was a man.
   Lord please forgive me if I murmur a lot, You see I’m tired Sir, I’ve done all that I 
can.
The old man wasn’t foolish, nor overly proud, age was taking it’s toll and she 
wasn’t abundantly kind.
   The decisions he knew he must make, he knew he should do while he still 
was strong of mind.
He said Lord please I need Your guidance for these things I must do.
   He said I’ve always counted on You Lord You’ve always pulled me through.
Then he heard it the faint knock upon the door.
   He said come on in it’s open, then he heard the footsteps on the floor.
The voice he heard was so sweet as it beckoned him to his feet.
   He said I’ve come to take you home, there is someone you should meet.
And standing there behind the voice stood our Savior in his door.
   You’ve done your job, you’ve done it well, but now I need you more.
Thank You Father, the old man said as he placed his old hat upon his head.
   As he turned and looked there stood Jesus reading from His book, twas the old 
mans name which Jesus read.
He said you have been a good and faithful servant friend, so please enter in.
   The other part of the story was not the end, it’s just how this story begins.
                             Glory To The Lord

What Is Christmas

I laid my head down, upon blanket of cotton weave.
Maybe soft like the one Jesus was wrapped, in a swaddling sleeve.
It was at last Christmas tomorrow, an this was the eve.
But in Santa I no longer now have reason  to believe.

Oh what is Christmas to all now days
We still today give our Lord praise.                                  (chorus)

The wise men were swirling in my thoughts tonight
Thoughts of Jesus once cradled in his mothers arms so tight.
The spirt of the night glistened in the candles twinkling light
I searched among my memories of better days with all my might.

Oh what is Christmas to all now days
Many not all still love our lord in so many many ways        (chorus)

But all I could think of was the expense it brought to familes.
Credit cards extended to limits,  depts, homeless with chilling extremeties.
I wonder what Jesus might say as this once was his birthday.
If he were here might he gather his deciples for yet to again pray.

Oh what is Christmas to all now days
Friends of families all come and go some astray               (chorus)

Why does misfortune affect so many with extreme debt?
Depression claims have of this God fearing world from finance fret
I try to understand as I am an adult now you see
But this world it stll so much baffles me.

Oh what is Christmas to all now days
Bills and credit cards of all who get a pay                         (chorus)

If we were really celebrating his birth, are we if his worth,
To bemore appreciative of his fathers creations......one is earth.
God could have given us any thing at all
But he chose a gift more meaningfull, his own son to fall.

Oh what is Christmas to all now days
The joy of love and Christ's brotherhood some say           (chorus)

He gives his love, his almight power.
He lifts us up in the final hour.

Oh what is Christmas to all now days
Candles lit for the as Christmas approaches day by day.   (chorus)

Empire

Somehow one day I will figure this out
Why everything I have worked for has fallen down
Walls that I built they will crumble down
In this world I wear the crown. 

..Waiting in my darkest hours
Elevate my mind beyond the highest tower
Watching my world razed before my eyes
An Empire built on trust and lies...

Close my eyes and I pray that it will soon be over
Dreaming of life without such fruitless colors
Why in the end must it feel so much colder
Lord of my life will You start this over

I Come To Be - BACKWARDS

This is my poem I Come To Be....only backwards!!

And Jesus shines brighter than the sun.
My life here on earth is done,
Where streets of gold are all I see.
This is where I dream to be,

So thankful, amazed and awed.
Bowing before a gracious God,
Once again, down on my knees.
This is where I come to be,

But God says, “I will restore and make you whole.”
Guilt and condemnation overwhelm my soul
Overcome with shame, on my knees.
This is how I come to be,

I fall into addiction to escape.
The love I once felt turns to hate.
Bitter and angry when someone hurts me.
This is how I come to be,

Yet Jesus gives me new birth.
The fall of man, the sin of the earth,
Born into sin and iniquity.
This is how I came to be,

Everything To Me

Jesus, everything to me.
   Jesus bought my liberty.
Jesus died so I could be
   righteous before God.

Jesus , Savior of my soul.
   Jesus hear my praises roll.
Jesus You have made me whole
   and acceptable to God.

Jesus is a loving friend,
   He'll be with me to the end.
Jesus will completely mend
   this vessel for my God.

Jesus, Jesus, You are all
   Jesus, Jesus hear my call.
Hold my hand lest I should fall,
   Keep me safe in God.

There Aint Nobody Like Jesus Christ

VI.	  When I’m down, Jesus picks me up.  When I’m sick, Jesus heals my pain.  When 
I’m alone, He holds my hand.  When I’m in need, Jesus blesses me.

CH.	And there aint nobody who can heal my body.  There aint nobody like Jesus 
Christ.  He’s got the power in every hour.  There aint nobody like Jesus Christ.

VII.	When I pray, I call on Him.  Day or night He’s always about.  Jesus is the light and 
He is the life.  There aint nobody like Jesus Christ.

The Bridge

 An obstruction can be overcome by building a bridge
Whether the obstacle is of land or of sea
But the bridge most essential to all of mankind
Is the one that leads to God, no other way to Him we'll find

With three nails and a cross, Jesus built us a bridge
To carry us across sin's deep abyss
There is no other way, for without Him we are lost
Jesus saves with a bridge made of three nails and a cross

God the Father was willing to send His only Son
God the Son obeyed and left His home on high
Born of a virgin by God's Spirit, clothed in humanity
Born to die, to rise again, He bridged the gap for you and me

We are such loathsome sinners, while God is so pure
It's impossible to match His perfect ways
No earthly bridge can reach over a chasm so wide
Only one such bridge exists, the one that Jesus provides

With three nails and a cross, Jesus built us a bridge
It's the only way to span sin's great divide
He offered up His life, there is no greater cost
Thank the Lord, He built a bridge with three nails and a cross

There has been many bridges built by the hands of men
Much skillfulness and toil they did employ
But none can be compared to, or was made with such love
As the bridge our Lord supplies for us, that leads to God above

Jesus offers free passage for you to cross that bridge
It's the only way, the Bible tells us so
No toll is required, it was paid for with His blood
Accept His gracious gift and He will guide you by His love

With three nails and a cross, Jesus built us a bridge
It's the only way to span sin's great divide
He offered up His life, there is no greater cost
I'm so thankful He built a bridge with three nails and a cross

Heaven's Not Too Far Away

VI.	There’s a place where I think about that’s far from this world.  You can’t get there 
by a car or a plane.  You can be the richest man, but you can’t buy your way in.  Heaven’s 
not too far if you only believe.

CH.	  Oh, let’s go to heaven together.  Let’s go see you family and friends.  Jesus will 
be there and I can’t wait to go.  Heaven’s not too far if you only believe.

VII.	There are sinners who can say they can wait, but do the know Jesus will be back 
someday?  Let’s make our way to the cross and pray it’s not too late.  Heaven’s not too far if 
you only believe.

Three Days

VI.     Lazarus was dead then Jesus raised him up.  Three days late, but we'll never know 
why.  Martha said if you had come then he would not have died, but in God's eyes, He's right 
on time.

Today is the day, that the Lord has made.  Three days late, but three days on time.

said it is only I, don't be afraid, for I'm three days on time.

How Can I Give Jesus Everything That He Deserves?


How can I give Jesus everything that He deserves?
How can I repay Him for His time?
Three long hours he spent upon the Cross of Calvary
That you and I might live eternally.

How can I give Jesus everything that He deserves?
Gold and silver slip right through my hands.
All I have to offer Him is my thanksgiving prayer—
With Jesus, I am rich beyond compare.

He loves me though I’m a sinner,
And He purchased me with all his blood and pain,
And it makes me feel so humble—
His loss upon the Cross became my gain.

How can I give Jesus everything that He deserves?
His suffering and tears have washed me clean.
Forgiving me for all the evil wickedness I’ve done—
Thank God for giving me His only Son.

That's What The Bible Says

VI.     Jesus walked on water and He healed the blind. He fed the multitude with fish and 
bread.  He is king of kings no matter what they say, 'cause that's what the Bible says

CH.     That is what the Bible says.  Every word is true, every scripture's real.  It's plain 
between the lines all black and white but what Jesus says is written in red.

VII.     Jesus healed the lame and He healed the sick.  Turned water into wine and raised the 
dead.  He is lord of lords, king of kings, no matter what they say, that's what the Bible says.

With a Shout!

With a shout!
At the last trump
The archangel's
Voice shall be heard
For the Lord 
Himself shall come
So encourage
All with these words!  (Chorus)

If we believe that Jesus died
And in three days He rose again
Then we believe that God will bring
With Christ those who now sleep in Him

For if only in this life we have hope in Jesus Christ
We would be the most miserable of men 
But Jesus is the Resurrection and He's the Life
Being buried with Him we shall rise again

(Chorus)

We who are alive and in Jesus still abides
Won't precede those who are asleep in Him 
So the dead in Christ first shall arise  
Then we who remain shall be caught up with them

For we all shall not sleep, but we all shall be changed
Into a being and a likeness of the Lord
When we meet Him face to face in the clouds in the air
We shall be with Him always and evermore

(Chorus)

IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD

In the house of the Lord...
Satan is not allowed,
only holy people dwell into it;
and they burn incense every sunrise and dawn, 
to keep Him away from the throne of Jehovah God!
And they sing praises
to Him, the Holiest One,
and to Christ they ask compassion
for the earthly ones who are weak...
and can't humble themselves and be exalted! 



Angels gather to do His will,
and Jesus among them smiles,
to share all the glory with the Father;
A chorus arises and echoes through the serene and open Heavens,
to make all creations bow to their Master!
I bow down to my kind and loving God,
whose face I am not permitted to see,
lest awe and death smite me;
touch me, Jesus and heal me...
with those hands, where nails entered and made you scream and bleed! 

 

If sin made me lose divine wisdom,
I repent of my foolishness and whisper 
my profound prayer of forgiveness;
welcome me back into Your house, Lord...
and I will perpetually obey your commandments!
The vanity and the blindness 
will be cleansed by the waters of Holiness,
and all my imperfections You will not remember!  



In the house of the Lord,
only peace can be heard and purity
can be felt in the verses of the hymns;
let me praise you with Your angels indefinitely,
and finally behold Your radiant face!
In the house of the Lord,
all His children are loved equally,
and they serve Him with reverence.  In the house of the Lord,
Christ shares His father's throne to judge every soul;
and on the right side, he receives all the worthy!

Jesus is the greatest

Jesus is the greatest
There's no man greater It’s a fact
You cant deny he change the world, he made an impact
He is the past, present and future 
There's never been a greater teacher
Its dedicated to the man himself who knows right from wrong
Admittedly I was a lost sheep until he came and knocked
It was a long talk but by the end I was a changed man
Its safe to say now I'm a fan of the man
But he is not just a man but a living god
His name lives on forever
I cant help but wonder still to this day I cant believe
How he was deceived 
He payed a hefty fee for me
He suffered for my sins, three days later he was resurrected
Regrettably sometimes I took it for granted
I just hope he is not offended cos I never really meant it
He will come again to judge the world in his glory 
that’s how the last chapter ended

Jesus is the greatest
Jesus is the greatest
Jesus is the greatest

What I would give to see him in his glory days
Gave a man sight using only his spit and clay, that’s not the only miracle
He gave the world hope he touched the hearts of many people
Showed us were all made in his own image one and equal
Taught us to forgive and turn the other cheek
But I must confess at first it was hard to believe
How can someone that was heavily deceived
Was able to turn the other cheek
I had doubt in my mind about how he was conceived 
I needed answers, was he the real messiah or a liar?
I turned to the scriptures, I turned to Isaiah
He predicted the lord would walk up on this earth again
He would bring with him the heavenly fire
This gave me hope when my back was against the ropes
I tried to be tough but I without him I wasnt strong enough
I guess he was always with me, i never did this alone
I cant stress it enough but I will say it again

Jesus is the greatest
Jesus is the greatest
Jesus is the greatest

Fishers of Men

multitude with fish and bread.  Brother, I think it’s time to change your attitude.  Follow Jesus 
and He’ll make you fishers of men.

CH.	Cast your nets on the other side of the water and you’ll be fishers of men.  All it 
takes is to trust in Him and have some faith and that’s how to become fishers of men.

CH.	  There’s a way, when there’s no way at all.  Cause your walls fall and your on the 
ground, but Jesus is on your side where there’s no way, Jesus is.

THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST FROM THE DEAD

Easter has a profound significance...
the resurrection of Christ from the dead,
and after Lent, there's no abstinence or penance;
sacrificed, as prophesied was the Pascal Lamb!
Lord, take all my sins away...
with true meekness I pray! 


Easter begins at sunrise
and the faithful sing with triumphant voices,
to glorify the unblemished
Lamb of God so hallowed and reigning!
Lord, take all my sins away...
with true meekness I pray! 


Christ, the worthy Lamb, was slain
and now He has risen from Hell,
paying with His shed blood our iniquities in full...
and whoever follows Him will be greatly rewarded! 
Lord, take all my sins away...
with true meekness I pray!


There stands, on His Heavenly throne, 
the Word revealed to us on the day of resurrection...
not scourged and crucified on the hill of Calvary,
but raised and glorified by the Father of eternity!
With true meekness I pray,...
Lord, take all my sins away!


He died for our sake, and love was His gift,
and as divine as He was, He even endured thirst;
let's dwell in His holy temple that man's malevolence
can't ever tear down or menace with vindictiveness!
Lord, take all my sins away...
with true meekness I pray!

When Jesus Steps In

VI.	When you’re in a fight, you know you can’t win, just call on Jesus, and He will step 
in.  The devil will try to lie to you.  When Jesus steps in, he lost the war.

CH.	When Jesus steps in, He’ll conquer all.  Hell move a mountain if it’s too tall.  He’ll

VII.	I know you can’t win for losin’, but my God is always on the throne.  Jesus is at

From Blood to Coke (angel of sadness)

Maybe I’ll never learn, haunted by every turn 
Ignore these blessing just to keeps stressing 
The moment ceases to please us, lets examine this flaw 
As I snort pieces of Jesus through this broken straw 
Seems I go through misery stress 
Just to write about, that’s who I am 
So dear reader no worry’s 
It is me not you that I damn 
Perhaps I will never be a great writer 
Grasping for fate ever so higher than a pilot 
A soviet fighter 
My dreams are exhausted 
Hopefully I’ll die before you kill me 
Similar to living life so costly 
My failures tower over my enemies 
Tell the poor 
I am only average so don’t fancy me 
My impatience is a essence of non relevance 
Driven by whispers and quiet chants 
For I feel the times are lingering soon 
All sinners to this platoon 
Our mission to be cast 
No further than shadows on the moon 
Yet we’ll never learn haunted by every turn 
Ignore these blessing just to keeps stressing 
The moment ceases to please us, lets examine this flaw 
As I snort pieces of Jesus through this broken straw

This Journey That I'm On

VI.	Striving everyday to follow Jesus.  The road that I take is a journey I make.  I 
won’t go astray for He is the way.  This journey I’m on leads me home.

CH.	This journey I’m on leads me home as I follow Jesus along the way.  Day after 
day, Jesus is my guide.  This journey I’m on I walk beside Him.

VII.	Troubles come my way every now and then, but He holds my hand through this 
land.  He leads me to that beautiful place this journey that I’m on that leads me home.

Baby Angels

Baby angels laced the sky
The moment that our Saviour died.
Each little angel choked back tears
This was the one they'd see save others for years.
The babies called for eagles' wings
To comfort Jesus and then to sing.
Baby angels saw the tomb
And planted flowers that would bloom
On the Ressurrection Day
When they'd gather and all say,
"This is the Redeemer we know and love 
Now let's watch Him ascend to above."
But first they had to cry
And look at Jesus and watch Him die.
They had to see Him carry that cross 
And sense His love and His mother'sloss.
Baby angels stood on clouds in the sky
As they watched HIm crucified and die.
But they dried their tears and took a breath
They knew they'd benefit from Jesus' death.
They went and saw the empty tomb
And watched all the flowers bloom.
They saw Him sit with God
And pay for our sins with His blood.
Baby angels lace the sky
And share the news that He is alive.

Loud Cries and Tears

Jesus offered up prayers and petitions
And He was heard for His reverent submission
But His quiet times were not so quiet in His years
He made His requests known with loud cries and tears
	Unto God who would save Him from premature death
	And for those who needed grace and life Jesus wept
	Unto God who gave Him power and love to cast out fears
	Jesus supplicated with strong crying and tears  [Chorus]

Stir up your spirit like an eagle, get unsettled
Get alone with God all night like the time when Jacob wrestled
He groaned until the morning, He held on and overcame
All his struggles, he was blessed and given a better name

Men ought to pray always and never faint
Being alert and praying for all the saints
On every occasion giving God no rest
With all kinds of prayers and requests

[Chorus]

Raise your voices like Apostles until the place is shaken
Pray til something happens for the cause undertaken
Like Elijah prayed seven times for the dry land
The abundant rain poured from a cloud like a hand

Jesus offered up prayers and petitions
And He was heard for His reverent submission
But His quiet times were not so quiet in His years
He made His requests known with loud cries and tears
	Unto God who would save Him from premature death
	And for those who needed grace and life Jesus wept
	Unto God who gave Him power and love to cast out fears
	Jesus supplicated with strong crying and tears  [Chorus]

What If

What if tomorrow never comes and this day were to be your last?
    Are you happy with whom you are, or do you wish you could change your past?
If Jesus was standing there could you look Him in the eye?
    If He spoke at all to you, do you think He would simply ask you why?
There’s no certainty of tomorrow, and no promise of today!
   There is promise of salvation to those who seek to live our Saviors way.
People can scoff at me and say I’m wrong.
   But I’ve got this feeling, and the feeling is mighty strong.
Our Savior ( Jesus Christ ) is coming, and the way it looks He may be on His way.
    If I could just reach one soul, I just wished you’d hear what I’m trying to say.
He doesn’t interfere, He just wants your eyes open so you can clearly see.
    You can choose to worship Jesus, or you can choose to let Him be.
One of two choices, but one you have to make.
   Your soul is what it’s all about, it’s what you have at stake.
No matter how bad you think you are, or maybe you simply lost your way.
   You can still turn it around if you’ll sincerely pray.
Repent your sins ( while you can ), And ask for forgiveness (while you can).
   This goes for us all, be you woman or be you man.
That is the end of this poem, but please read on. Jesus died for all our sins, but 
even death could not hold Him. He arose from the tomb and was seen by many 
before ascending to heaven to be with the Father. This is not a fairy tale or some 
child’s bedtime story. Jesus was the sacrificial lamb for all mankind. God Bless 
Each And All.

Unconventional God

the One Omnipotent God

does unconventional things

and many out there agree

until they find out that it means

His ways are passed finding out

but if we will simply obey

the world will see what God does

and hear what God has to say



{Bridge}

So who directs God's Spirit to do as they feel 

He's the One who leads and guides and goes where He wills

Teaching us as we follow Christ we become unpredictable

Getting to know Him, doing exploits, strong and unconventional 



Would you do what Jesus did?

Would you say what Jesus said?

If you could see and hear your Father

Be so unpredictable

Would you do it how He did it?

Would you say it how He said it?

If you could see and hear your Father

Be so unconventional  [Chorus]



those full of the Spirit of God

do unconventional things

and many out there agree

until they find out that it means

His thoughts are not their thoughts

His ways are not their ways

and those God directs perform

and speak like Jesus does and says

According to the Scriptures

Jesus died for my sins
(According to the Scriptures)
He was laid in a tomb
(According to the Scriptures)
But He rose to life again
(According to the Scriptures)
Now He's coming real soon
(According to the Scriptures)     [Chorus]

Jesus died for my sins, He was laid in a tomb
But He rose to life again, now  He's coming real soon
According to the Scriptures and believed by the saints
Yet if Christ be not raised then our faith is in vain
BUT!  Jesus is alive and He rose from the dead
We're the Body of Christ and Christ is the head
Who's become the firstfruit of those who've slept
Afterward at His Coming, those who have been kept
From the pollution of the world, the solution is faith
Being sealed with His Spirit until we see Christ's day
When all things are subdued and the mountains will fall
The son is subject to the father, God is all and in all
Every knee will surely bow and tongue confess that
Jesus is Lord while secrets of the hearts manifest
Some on the right hand, others on the left
As he separates the wheat from the chaff with his breath

[Chorus]

It's according to the Word, now it's time for you to level
You can't drink of Jesus cup and the cup of the devil
Awake to righteousness and sin not!
And it's ashame if you don't have the knowledge of God
Watch ye, stand fast in the faith be strong
Submit yourself to Jesus flee away from all wrong
For evil companionships corrupt good manners
So stay with holy ones lifting up the Lord's banner
As Christ increases, we decrease daily dying
Maximizing with the People Of War Ever Rising
While awaiting the redemption of our bodies we're victors
And we'll go up in the Rapture according to the Scriptures

[Chorus]


{A rap I wrote while in college in celebration of Easter-  I Cor. 15:3,4}

Who is Our Life

When Christ, who is our Life, shall appear
We'll be caught up~! To meet Him in the air
And our glory hid in God with Jesus Christ
Shall be revealed when we appear 
With Him in Eternal Life  (Chorus)

Some people say they got the life
And they think they have a better way
But the truth about their lusts and pride
Is with the using they all pass away

[Bridge]
Yet they think it's strange that we don't run
To do the same excess they consider fun
And when ridiculed for the sake of His Name
Compared to Glory, it's nothing- take the shame

(Chorus)

The world tells us to get a life
And that we live a narrow-minded way
But the truth we know will cause such strife
Because they're blind & deaf to what we say

[BridgeII]
But the Gospel won't be hid or overcome
For then it would be concealed from the lost ones
But if we suffer insults for the name of Christ
Remember in Him are all the meanings of Life

(Chorus)

{Channel}
And when the sign of the Son appears in the sky
Then all the nations of the earth will begin to cry
For they will see Him come with power and glory from above
And see us in the clouds with Him they've spoken evil of

[Bridge]

When Christ, who is our Life, shall appear
We'll be caught up~! To meet Him in the air
And our glory hid in God with Jesus Christ
Shall be revealed when we appear 
With Him in Eternal Life  (Chorus)

Tell Me The Story Of Jesus

O come tell me the story of Jesus on Jordan's stormy bank
Come let's us break bread together down by the old rugged cross
Lift  Lift every voice and sing Joyful Joyful We adorn Thee
Let's come and crown Him with many crowns for the beauty of the earth
For the Lord is my Shepard Pass me not O gentel Saviour
Keep me leaning on the everlasting arm and take the name of Jesus with you
For He is purer and whiter than snow So let me come face to face
With my Christ my Lord amidst the lily of the valley 
For I love to tell the story that there is a foundation 
Since Jesus came into my heart  For this is my Father's World
Which He leadeth me down the path When the morning comes
Come join just a closer walk with Thee 
For the church's are our foundations Of O God our hope in ages past



Tribute To Christ Our Lord

Keeps Me Sangin'

Jesus keeps me sangin'-!

I sing cause I'm happy, my heart's melody
I cause I'm free, yes, I know that I am free indeed
His eye's on the sparrow; I know He watches me
And that keeps me sangin'
He keeps me sangin'
Jesus keeps me sangin'-!  (Chorus)

I thought that I would never find someone so patient and so kind
Who had love that was just for me
Until Jesus came my way, He still sticks close to me today
So unconditionally

(Bridge 1)
He's always with me, never leaves nor forsakes me
And Jesus is the one thing my heart is sure of
So I-
(Chorus)

Jesus is my Lord and God and His love is shed abroad
In my heart I do believe
And with my mouth I do confess and I am saved, His righteousness
Is so heavenly

(Bridge 2)
He forgives and forgets all my sins and my debts
And Jesus is the one thing that my heart is sure of
So I-
(Chorus)

Now I need, and you need, and we all need His kind of love (2x's)
 
He forgives and forgets all my sins and my debts
And Jesus is the one thing my heart is sure of

So I- sing cause I'm happy, my heart's melody
I cause I'm free, yes, I know that I am free indeed
His eye's on the sparrow; I know He watches me
And that keeps me sangin'
He keeps me sangin'
Jesus keeps me sangin'-!  (Chorus)

I sing for joy inside my soul
Cause Jesus Christ has made me whole
His joy's my strength that makes me glad
And He's the best love I've ever had

(Fade with the Chorus)

Life is a gift

It is he that created this world
Who else could make such a wonder?
With the timing of the rain and its thunder

It is he that made the mountaintop’s so tall
Where rainwater 
does pour down and fall.

It is he that created man
In his own image, from his hand

And he has made man a mate
So they could live happily together
And procreate.

Yes the Lord Jesus is good and great
He gave us food from the lands
So may accelerate

But he gave us a list of commandments 
In hopes we would have directions and limits

Man has moved too far too fast 
He has destroyed much of this earth 
in a blast.

Man has forgotten what a gift Jesus gave him 
Life -
And to this his face has turned grim 

With man always in battle
Behaving with a whim
Forever ,humanity shall live in sin

SHE FOUND HIM

She was just a child in seventy-two. The man they called JESUS, she never knew.
His name, she was never supposed to say. Only to GOD, was she allowed to
pray. As she grew, her life seemed so very hard. She often wondered. Who is
this man they call our LORD? Until one day she met him face to face.
She will never forget those words He did say!
             My name is JESUS! I've been with you right from the start!
              I am your LORD! I love you with all of my heart!
              Accept me, and I will wash away your sins!
              Do this, and you will never be alone again!
She found HIM! He was what she had been searching for. Now she knew, she
would never have to walk alone anymore. For the first time in her life, she
could finally see. With JESUS by her side, she would never again be in need.
Times were still tough for her along the way. At times she didn't know if she
could make it through another day. She would fall to her knees and call out
HIS name. Then she would remember those words HE did say.
                My name is JESUS! I've been with you right from the start!
                 I am your LORD! I love you with all of my heart!
                 Accept ME, and I will wash away your sins!
                  Do this, and you will never be alone again!
The years went by. She had a family of her own.She taught them about JESUS,
and how they would never have to walk alone.Just seek HIM first and everything
will fall into place. HE will be the light in your darkest hour.HE will show you
the way. Before she goes to sleep each and every night, she thanks the LORD
for what HE has brought to her life. She will never forget when JESUS saved
her soul on that blessed day, or for those precious words HE did say.
                    My name is JESUS! I've been with you right from the start!
                     I am you LORD! I love you with all of my heart!
                     Accept me, and I will wash away your sins!
                      Do this, and you will never be alone again!

Come Up Here!

Rise up!  Rise up and Come up here
Because Jesus Christ is ready to appear
The Day of Judgment is drawing near
So rise up!  Before He says come up here  (Chorus)

A time will come, and now it is
When those who are dead
Will hear the Son of God's voice
And those who hear, they shall live
For the Life in Christ quickens
Those who make Him their choice

   Because the life the Father has to make the dead arise
   He has granted to his Son to give unto them
   Who are pleased to cross over from death unto life
   But you must believe in Christ and live your life for him

A time will come, so marvel not
When those who are in their graves
Will hear the Lord's voice
And everyone of them shall come out
To receive judgment or reward
 According to their own choice

   Those who have done good shall resurrect unto God's life
   But those who have done evil shall only rise to be condemned
   So to enter in the Gate and walk the Way you must strive
   Remember this, if he doesn't come first, he may call you to Him
   
Rise up!  Rise up and Come up here
Because Jesus Christ is ready to appear
The Day of Judgment is drawing near
So rise up!  Before He says come up here  (Chorus)

Over The Rainbow

Over the rainbow, Jesus is waiting, 
waiting for me, to, come when He calls,
waiting for me to follow Him.

 Chorus-> Jesus has promised, He'll always be true,...
look to Him now, He'll save you!

Over the rainbow, Jesus is watching,
watching o'er me, while in His will,
watching o'er me while here below.

 Chorus-> Jesus has promised, He'll always be true,...
look to Him now, He'll save you!

Over the rainbow, Jesus is leading,
leading down, His paths of mercy,
leading me down, the narrow, path.

 Chorus-> Jesus has promised, He'll always be true,...
look to Him now, He'll save you!

December Wind

The dark night is ended, daybreak has come,
the long wait is over, God’s grand plan is done,
trumpets are sounding from a faraway land,
stars are shining and a new day’s begun.

Angels are singing their soft harmony
there in the manger where the baby lay;
up from the sky a bright light’s streaming
down on the face of child Jesus sleeping.

December wind is blowing chilly and cold
spreading the good news all over the world;
from towns and cities to the wildest prairie:
the Lord of salvation is born today.

God has sent His Son to show us the way,
come with me, brethren, let’s praise Him today,
let our voices ring that the heavens may hear:
the dear infant Jesus is finally here!

Whenever the cold yuletide wind moves along,
it brings forth a melody and a sweet song;
unity and peace to all of mankind -
these are the things someday we will find.
