The Light Shall Overcome The Night

When you find yourself alone in the shadows
Void of peace and tricked by deceit,
Know that light flushes out the dark
And there's a light deep within your heart

If you find yourself in a crowd blind of clear sights,
Remove yourself from their company, and find some light

It will always be darkest before dawn
So prepare yourself a light
Because darkness will surely come

For shadow shrouds over everyone and everything,
Never are you alone when the night comes to cling

We all share the same sun and the same moon
But with life comes fire, let us use it to banish the present gloom

Together, when we all contribute to the fire
We can create warmth and huddle around the campfire
Until this present darkness expires

Some may be lost within the pitch black, and absent day
Some may even run wild in search of prey 

But know this..
Within your heart can start a spark,
The smallest fire can give birth to soaring flames
So bright you might even forget the darkness even came

The light shall overcome the night, breaching through the skies
So hold fast to your light, whatever it may be
A candle, a torch, a lantern, or even the full moon shining across the seas and stars

GOD never gives us more than we can handle
So hold strong to your BLAZING candles

Burn This Skin

Help me burn this skin
I can’t believe all the hollow lies I’ve burnt in
 It’s as if there’s a special place in hell
For the sins that I have held
I’ve betrayed the innocence of what I used to be

It’s so funny to realize how perspective changes everything
We keep lying to ourselves and blame it on anything, on anything
Feeding off of drama like a parasite feeds on blood of death
We kill ourselves from the inside just to be like the rest 

Help me burn this skin
I can’t believe all the hollow lies I’ve burnt in
 It’s as if there’s a special place in hell
For the sins that I have held
I’ve betrayed the innocence of what I used to be

Men use love just to get sexual pleasure
Degrading beauty, we slowly lose our treasure
Women giving themselves away to be loved
Yet they still get disposed of
God, what have we done
Please take us back to where we begun

Help me burn this skin
I can’t believe all the hollow lies I’ve burnt in
 It’s as if there’s a special place in hell
For the sins that I have held
I’ve betrayed the innocence of what I used to be

God, I’m screaming out for you
In a world of pain, I thirst for truth
I beg for more, for more than this
I’ve lived life in the worst abyss
I need my Father’s embrace
I need to be saved by grace

Keyboard of my Heart

The Keyboard of My Heart
By

Stan Almendro

The Keyboard of my heart has no ivory keys to play
 Music comes from what I think, dream and what I say
A melody that people hear is my happy, sensitive heart
It is a song that will stay and never from me depart.

There are also no black keys in the keyboard of my heart
And you can in fact not tell the black keys from the white
No hands are found striking these keys that don’t exist
Yet the sweetness of the chords no heart can really resist

With no white or black keys in this keyboard of my heart
Where and how does the music begin to make a start?
No music sheet was written for this keyboard of my heart
                  Music that you hear gets your feet tapping to every part

No musician, grandmaster plays this keyboard of my soul
                  It sends forth a celestial joy to the weak and to the bold
The weak and frail are not excluded from this joyous tune
They need no physical energy to frolic from morn to noon

The bold and strong live in this music which never stops
It is not a piece of music bought in some corner shop
Because it’s not for sale the poor also to this music dance
Yes weak, bold both rich and poor all have an equal chance

No very expensive grand piano or master music hand
Is needed for the music seems is written in the sand
So as you see me frolic, dance to the music of the band
Ask that the keyboard of your heart be touched by the “Master's Hand."

He Will Be Your Saving Grace

This is a parody I wrote to the song of "Wrecking Ball" I believe this is inspirational, and could draw someone closer to God. This poem, or song, tells a little story, coming from my life, that I was struggling, and found my rest in God. I hope you do to. :)

Sometimes
Life throws
A wrench
Into your side,
Trin' knock you down.

You scream
And cry
Into the night,
But no one
Is ever around.

Call upon His name,
He will save the day,
He has always loved you.

Don't you live a lie,
Running from His side,
He will always love you.

And He will be your saving grace,
He died for you on the cross that day,
Saving you from what you deserved.
So you could be with Him,
Eternally.
Be with Him,
Eternally.

You fight,
And yell,
With all
Your friends,
And now
You're tumbling down.

You lost
The fight,
All through
The night
You pray,
You're asking Him 'why?'

Call upon His name,
He will save the day,
He has always loved you.

Don't you live a lie,
Running from His side,
He will always love you.

And He will be your saving grace,
He died for you on the cross that day,
Saving you from what you deserved.
So you could be with Him,
Eternally.

And He will be your saving grace,
Saving you from all you sin and shame,
Instead of letting you fall so hard,
He has given you a second chance,
To be with Him,
Eternally.

Keep you eyes trained on Him,
Don't you ever look away.
Make sure that you read and pray,
Draw you attention to His eyes.

Keep you eyes trained on Him,
Don't you ever look away.
Make sure that you read and pray.

Call upon His name,
He will save the day,
He has always loved you.

And He will be your saving grace,
He died for you on the cross that day,
Saving you from what you deserved.
So you could be with Him,
Eternally.

And He will be your saving grace,
Saving you from all you sin and shame,
Instead of letting you fall so hard,
He has given you a second chance,
To be with Him,
Eternally.
To be with Him,
Eternally.

Devils only walk straight lines...

devils' cannot go round corners' 
evil cannot bend- 
it is mostly found in madmen 
...in many cases
"some married men"
 
they all wear bare face masks, 
the evil of the deciever is located 
in their eyes...connected to a rotten 
heart...here the deceit is beating... 

..."sin salivating demon"...

they are frustrated fallen women...
predators of women and children, 

you can find them on your t.v 
preaching Christian words,... 
more lies...
the flesh of young 
they love to torture, 

another so called "Christian, politician" 
to be exact, preaching against 
child molestation, 
found himself in prison, 
for raping children,...that's a fact 

the devils work, gives lips service 
to that of a spiritual demon flirt 

none of you can be trusted, 
you are all potential rapists' 
just a matter of time 
before your a%s is busted, 
before the truths' uncovered 

you Christian 
ass holes point the finger at gays...
when you are the real reason 
why you go to church and pray 

it is not to find your faith, 
for you have none at the start, 

...for you wouldn't do
the kinds of things
that break a childs heart...

you know it is only a matter of time 
before your life falls apart ...

hang your head in shame you bastard!!!
hang your head in shame... 

you're the reason why women leave men 
why so many despise your type
the heart of this man is not be trusted... 
from experience this logic commands 

...another supposed family man...
Hiding behind his family...his wife

don't preach to me you sinner... 
all of you make me laugh... 
you won't find me in one of churches 
your mind bending cult... 
perfectly built to house sinners 
your the ones' who take it up the a#s

this so called religion
you hide behind...
you yourself a joke...

Now I could write a passage
of compassion-be a real bleeding
heart...

but as adults who are we protecting
here...the child...or these nobs
these predators...that steal
a childs innocence...a childs dreams

there is no compassion
only an abyss I cannot forgive
anyone...anyone for this...

 for these kids
a life of nightmares dark shadows
and silent screams...they'll either end up
victims...or brave courageous...
strong and determined human beings...choose a life
of love somehow become a beautiful
loving person...

for devils only walk straight lines...
in God you will repent...
in God there is no pretence...

Truth be told, I'm giving God all the glory

Glorious the days and the way
I share his praise
God sends his prayer warriors 
to take away my pain
truth be told, his power lights my way
truth be told, I feel his presence as I pray
truth be told, he lifts me up everyday
truth be told, I'm giving God all the glory.

When I stumble I'm lifted up
God never lets me give up
when my body and mind is weary 
God becomes the strength within me
truth be told, God hears my every prayer
truth be told, God feels my every tear 
truth be told, he lifts me up everyday 
truth be told, I'm giving God all the glory.

If you're going through some things
and your heart is feeling heavy
God will carry all your burdens
God will lift the weight right from you
truth be told, God is the alpha and omega
truth be told, God is the almighty creator
truth be told, he lifts me up everyday
truth be told, I'm giving God all the glory.

I Sought Him

I sought Him by the roadside,
Where the flowers grew so fair,
And breezes blew, and birds sang,
But He wasn't there.

I sought Him in the marketplace,
In the busy thoroughfare,
Among the hustling, bustling crowds,
But He wasn't there.

I sought Him deep within my heart,
Through solitude and prayer,
I sought Him, yes, with all my heart,
And now He's everywhere.

Yes He is always with me,
No matter where I roam,
Because, you see, I gave my heart,
To be His very home.

Lifelong Stories

You and I 
Suicide
Never knowing what it means
To bleed
Never touching the dreams
You need 
Just bleed 

Thoughts glimpse inside
Glimpse inside the mind 
They say you’re nothing
Hide your worth
They say you’re nothing
Dead from birth 

We all want to be
Want to be
What they want us to be
We all wanna see 
Wanna see the light
Open up your eyes
See inside the light 
This is our story
Give God the glory 

Down the medication
Take it all in 
Put another line inside the wrist
Maybe it’ll block out the fist 
What does this life even mean
What is a happy dream 

We all want to be
Want to be
What they want us to be
We all wanna see 
Wanna see the light
Open up your eyes
See inside the light 
This is our story
Give God the glory

Lovers seem to fade
Fade into the grey
Families tear apart
Rip out your heart 
No one seems to care
If you go no where
No one seems to cry
If you sleep at night 

We all want to be
Want to be
What they want us to be
We all wanna see 
Wanna see the light
Open up your eyes
See inside the light 
This is our story
Give God the glory

Thoughts glimpse inside
Glimpse inside the mind 
They say you’re nothing
Hide your worth
They say you’re nothing
Dead from birth

Just run
Run away
Death is not the end
Heaven send 
There’s something greater
In the air
God we need you now 
There must be more
More than this 

 We all want to be
Want to be
What they want us to be
We all wanna see 
Wanna see the light
Open up your eyes
See inside the light 
This is our story
Give God the glory

Your Love Made The Difference

Jesus, Your love changed me
Your love made the difference
You loving me changed me
I’m not the same
I’ve been changed
I’m a new person
Changed from the inside out
Jesus, Your love changed me
Your love made the difference
You loving me changed me
I can pray for my enemies
I can turn the other cheek 
Jesus, Your love changed me
Your love made the difference
You loving me changed me
I can love, love unconditionally
I can bless those who curse me 
Although not always easy, I can do it
Yes, I can do it 
Jesus, Your love changed me
Your love made the difference
You loving me changed me
Changed me from the inside out

I LOOK AT YOU

I look at You and I see the mountains moving
I look at You, and the seas are split apart
I look at You, and I see the love of ages
All bursting from one ever-faithful heart.

Sometimes our eyes grow weary in our misery
Our lids are weighted heavy from our tears
And we can't see beyond, our salty, drowning pond
So we flounder then surrender to our fears.

But I look at You and I see the mountains moving
I look at You, and the seas are split apart
I look at You, and I see the love of ages
All bursting from one ever-faithful heart.

Each day can be so filled with distractions
Rushing from one crisis to the next
And in our haste to fix, we exclude You from the mix
When the answers all lie within your text.

Cuz when I look at You, I see the mountains moving
I look at You, and the seas are split apart
I look at You, and I see the love of ages
All bursting from one ever-faithful heart

A million miracles I see
The biggest miracle would be
That You chose to love a person lost as me.

Now I look at You and I see the mountains moving
I look at You, and the seas are split apart
I look at You, and I see the love of ages
All bursting from one ever-faithful heart.

REJOICE THIS NOEL

a repost to celebrate the reason for the season

If all is lost and all is bleak
and new beginnings in life you seek
The future's empty,looking grim
Cast all your cares upon Him

Come,come,to Emannuel
    rejoice in fellowship this Noel
Praise,Praise as blessings flow,
    when Jesus Christ,you begin to know

When sorrow's sadness sears your heart
you need someone to take your part
If trials and troubles break you in two
turn to God,and be born anew

Come,come,to Emannuel
    rejoice in fellowship this Noel
Praise,Praise as blessings flow,
    when Jesus Christ,you begin to know


Sung to the air:Greensleeves

Inspired by the chorus of William Dix's carol 'What child is this...'

God, you are Amazing

Author Dana Redricks
May 11, 2017

There are no words 
to describe how great you are.
You are the great I am
from beginning to the end
You’re the eternal God
You are our Father
You are our Sheppard, provider, 
our deliverer,
You are the king of kings
The creator of everything
You are amazing
In all the universe, 
there is none like you
You are amazing, amazing God
Each creature with its own design
You are the master builder
You’re one of a kind
You are amazing, amazing God

St Cuthbert

On Lindisfarne, they say, 
St Cuthbert took a hooded crow, 
A jackdaw and a jay, 
And on their strident tongues bestowed

The gift of harmony.
No more did ugly croaks and caws
Dispute above the sea, 
Or trouble those sequestered shores.

They sang all day, those three; 
And as they drew their corvine kin, 
The devil wept to see
His shrinking nursery of sin.

I Was, But Now I Got Jesus

I was broken, busted and disgusted;
But now I got Jesus;
I got the fruit of the tree in my soul;
and He won't let me go...
I was, but Now I got love
I was, but Now I am His
I was, but now I got Jesus, and He freed us...

I was lost, tossed and distrusted;
But now I got Jesus;
I got the fruit of the tree in my soul;
and He won't let me go...
I was, but Now I got love
I was, but Now I am His
I was, but now I got Jesus, and He freed us...

now I got Jesus, I got the Lord;
now I got Jesus, this I am sure;

I was broken, busted and disgusted;
But now I got Jesus;
I got the fruit of the tree in my soul;
and He won't let me go...
I was, but Now I got love
I was, but Now I am His
I was, but now I got Jesus, and He freed us...

now I got Jesus, I got the Lord;
now I got Jesus, this I am sure;

I got the Lord, the Lord Jesus Christ in my life;
and He doesn't have to die for me twice;
For He's the one and only witness...
 With the fruit of the tree in my soul;

I was lost, tossed and distrusted;
But now I got Jesus;
I got the fruit of the tree in my soul;
and He won't let me go...
I was broken, busted and disgusted;
But now I got Jesus;
I got the fruit of the tree in my soul;
and He won't let me go...
I Was but now I Got Jesus;
I Was but now I Got Jesus;
I Was but now I Got Jesus;
I Was but now I Got Jesus;
I Was but now I Got Jesus;
I Was but now I Got Jesus;
I Was but now I Got Jesus;

Nothing But God Can Satisfy Me

When I'm all alone and sleeping on a shelf;
There is nothing, no nothing else;
That will mortify, magnify immortalize my soul;
 
Nothing will, Nothing else will...

Nothing but God can satisfy me;
Nothing but God can satisfy
Nothing but God can satisfy me

Nothing. . .

When I'm all alone and sleeping on a shelf;
There's nothing no nothing else;
That will mortify, magnify, and immortalize my soul, nothing no nothing

Nothing but God can satisfy me;
Nothing but God can satisfy me;

You Were there For Me

You know some, if not all;
Of my needs;
Like God you stood up and covered me ( yes you did)
And for all that, I am glad you did;

You were there for me;

Like as a tree branches and leaves;
You covered me;
Like God you stood up and covered me ( yes you did)

You were there for me;

My burdens seemed great to me;
But your smallen doubts made me realize that greater is He that is within me;
Is greater than he that is in the world;
when problems were there;
You shown you cared;
You were there for me;
When I spoke of things you listen;
Your were there for me
You were there, you care and yes...
you were there
you were there
you were there for me;
You showed you care;
You often prayed;
You brought back my remembrance;
You often cheered, when I just feared;
My God
My God
 You cared and I thank you for you were
you were
You were there for me;

I Prayed

 This depression, got me down;
Seems like no one cares, no ones around;

Feeling, sad and so blue;
Seems like, I don't have you;

Lord, I don't have, have you;

I prayed
just prayed
and still
have no way to show for what you have said
so over and over again. . . I pray

I just found out;
I began having doubts;

My mind it's clout? ? ?
What am I doing that's. . . .

what's wrong with you God
Do you hear me calling you, Lord;
What am I to do OH!!  so I repent of myself, and just held myself and I, I, just...

I prayed
just prayed
and still
have no way to show for what you have said, what you do or did;
so over and over again. . . I just prayed

All I ever needed is a forgiving someone;
And a love of mine own;
so I stop sheading these tears I'm crying;
Need to stand up and be a Godly man(woman);

so I prayed
just prayed
and still prayed forever and a day
Lord, God I'll let you have your way in my life come here do what you do what's may cause all I want to do is just
Pray

And I fell on my knees;
 And cried out to the Lord please;
Please save me, save me, save me;

so I prayed
just prayed
and still good God almighty I am entitled to pray and stay in the will of His and be one of many child's so I fall on my knees over and o'ver agin and just 
Pray

I close my eyes with a sincere heart;
myself bleeds and I stay in His presents;
He embraces me caress me forgiving me He engulfs me in His agape love;

and I prayed
and I prayed
and I prayed and asked for forgiveness
each and every second, minute, hour, morning, noon, night, (always)


and I prayed
just prayed
and I prayed
for the answers
and I prayed for blessings;
and I prayed for longevity;
and I prayed to be with Him, forever in Heaven;
and I prayed for you;
will you pray for me to;
May God bless those that read these words;
so I prayed
for your life
and I prayed
that everything will be alright
and I prayed
for all mankind
and when things get you down
and no one seems to care
just go inside your closet and stay..
just pray
this I pray
and I prayed

I Will Refresh the Weary and Satisfy the Faint

Oh, I
I will
I will try and do my best;
While allowing God to do the best;
He's my provider;
And my guider, 
He's better to me than I've been to myself;

The Lord came to me in a vision and He said;
"Wayward brother(sister) don't you worry your self;
And don't you wonder and fall while you wait;
The things you're going through, in the long run shall make you strong and great;
for  I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint;
Please allow me to call all, let's not wait;
I AM the GREAT AND ALL I AM;
Don't you be late;
My angels beacon you all at heavens gate;
And once and for all you'll receive the call;
Open your heart and let's relate."

For I will
For I will
I will refresh the weary and satisfy
satisfy
I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint;
My child shall await your appointed time;
And then, only then I'll see you at heavens gate;

Now I know that you maybe only;
Only, trying to right those wrongs you've done;
But it's now or never leave those things;
Those bad choice decisions alone;

And I will come into the body;
and not just to satisfy the soul;
Just wanna let you know
I will cleanse  you of all injustices and leave you whole;
whole
I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint;
I will never leave you or call you inadequate;
I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint
forevermore

Through your eyes

Give me heaven's eyes
Instead of these earthly lies
For they paralyzes
The gifts inside.
Give me angel ears
So I can hear
With a clear transmission
Not these tattered incisions.
My lungs are enlarged with an ocean of guilt
Like a flower, I quietly 
silently, wilt
After all we only bloom for a moment
I might as well own it.
Break through the barricades
Of the “good old days”
What a deception
Playing on my perception.
What a joke
Trying to suffocate and choke.
There’s nothing good back there
Nothing, nothing, absolutely 
Nothing.
Just a another trap
Keeping me looking back
Soldiers move on
So when you remember my name'
remember I’m gone,
On a new mission
Like a spiritual obstetrician
Got a new birth
Found some eternal worth.
On a higher level
Looking down on the devil.
Nothing left to say
I’m done doing it my way.
There’s only one way
I find it every day
When I pray
Every day
One way.
Shackles can’t abide there
Just a holy flare
Lighting the path ahead.
Some say I’m dead
That may be true
I’m dead alright,
dead to you!
You can’t encounter the glory
And continue in the same story
You can’t shower in light
And return to the night.
There is restitution
For all that spiritual prostitution
There is a day of reckoning
Wisdom is… answering his beckoning.
Where can you run in a cage tightly closed?
When you surrender you emerge,
 like a rose,
The desolate find waters
The fatherless become daughters
The chosen will shine
In his time,
The chosen shall shine.

The Last Laugh

I’m not an ego maniac
you know the type that gives others a heart attack
I get my vital nutrition 
From a dietitian
Who only asks for my Submission
And he gives me the ambition
To fight back
On track
Promises me that I will never lack.
There’s a battle every time I wake
There’s a battle in every move I make 
I am Jehovah's daughter
That’s why I can walk on water
I don’t need a psychic to read my palm
I have the prophecies, of his words, on my arm
I don’t need soothsayers to give me a premonition
I have fire from heaven that is my ammunition
Everywhere I turn their speaking death
It rains down until I have nothing left
Everyone is believing a lie
How can I sit back and watch as time goes by
The devil has sung many too sleep
Wake up, men of God; you’re being slaughtered like sheep
Resist the temptation
And have a deeper appreciation
For the lives placed in your hand
Or they’ll sink like quicksand
Into the abyss of despair
God’s presence isn’t there
This is a warning in these last days
To surrender your rebellious ways
Judgment is coming whether you believe it or not
Children of Niniva repent on the spot
And the God of "Mercy" will change his mind,
He calls out, “ Is there anyone I can find
That will abandon their ways and come into the light
Put on righteousness and fight this good fight?”
Spiritual anorexia
Emaciated the rest of you
Spiritual abortion
Has led many to extortion
Who will bow? Who will plead?
Save this generation which bleeds
Fathers gone estrange
Birthing violence that’s deranged
Suicide… the anti-Christ
Don’t you know Jesus paid the price?

ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU

I was just trying to remember the past
 trying to remember the good people
 and the bad people,
 that i came across on my way,

i want you to know
that you are among the good people
 that left a good trace in my life,

once again i just want to say thank you
for passing through my life,
is so short but is wonderful
i want you here forever.

Don't you worry bout my soul

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

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.

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.

Song of Praise

When the role is called up yonder
We will never from him wander 
We will praise, our voices raise
When the Father stands before us
And he crowns his own victorious 
We will sing, our voices ring.

And forever and forever and forever and a day
I shall never stop to sing this song of praises I will say
Praise the Lord God almighty Father, son and Holy Ghost
Praise to Jesus,…….my precious host.

When I stand before his Glory
I shall hear my life’s sad story
And shall plea, on bended knee
Then when Jesus says he washed me
With his blood and now I am free
I will raise, and shout his praise.

And forever and forever and forever and a day
We shall never stop to sing this song of praises and will say
Praise the Lord God almighty Father, son and Holy Ghost
Praise to Jesus,…….our precious host.

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.

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...

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.
