Mirror mirrors show me mine, 
reflect to me the pure divine~

If my view of you is clouded and dim, 
I have thrown myself on the altar of sin~

If I perceive in your heart only darkness and death, 
I have stolen the fragrance of Spirit’s sweet breath~

If beauty be seen and echoed through you, 
my healing is sure and my vision so true~

If you unfold yourself and are open to me, 
I will not mirror your lies or the guilt that you see~

If your mind filters not the depth of my story, 
you will fall in my eyes and at once know your glory~

You will see the true purpose for the seeds you have sown~
You will witness the Divine in my eyes as your own~

How could I not know you, for I now see you clearly~?
How could I not hold you and love you so dearly~?

The illusion of borders between you and I 
is the reason, the cause, and the root of the lie~

This time Lord I'm coming home.
     Hungry, tired, all alone.
I feel the angels comfort me.
     This is where I want to be.
This time Lord I'm coming home.
     It's always been where I belong. 
I'll do the things I know I should,
     'Cause, this time Lord, I'm coming home for good.

How quickly all the years have passed.
It seems like yesterday.
My faith was slipping, fading fast,
And I just walked away.
In search of all the earthly things,
That somehow brought me joy.
I knocked and doors were opening,
Was just the devil's ploy.

My senses lived a blissful life,
With every turn I took.
I left my home, the kids and wife,
Without a second look.
I prayed for good times every night
A new world to explore.
I heard a voice, say, "It's alright."
And then I lost some more.

I drank my way to happiness.
Gave barroom crowds a show.
Was in some woman's sweet caress,
Whenever I would go.
The morning light fell down on me,
A dull consuming weight.
That took away the memory 
Of heaven's pearly gate.

Had nothing left, I lost it all.
Was well on my way down.
I swam in tears and alcohol,
Until I thought I'd drown.
Was contemplating suicide.
Had nowhere else to go.
That's when I heard the voice inside...
I'LL ALWAYS LOVE YOU SO!!

This time Lord I'm coming home.
     Hungry, tired, all alone.
I feel the angels comfort me.
     This is where I want to be.
This time Lord I'm coming home.
     It's always been where I belong.
I'll do the things I know I should.
     'Cause, this time Lord, I'm coming home for good.

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......

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,
      and nigh 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

Details | Lyric |
This mysterious, magical manifestation
with its constantly changing, evolving creation,
rests not for one moment in its fluid vibration
and all answers are found in the question’s negation~

With no effort or movement, no searching or goal,
when we see beyond form with the eyes of the soul,
the facade falls away and with it, control
and the you that seemed separate, at once is made whole~

With no reason for joy, one is still overjoyed,
when the “natural state” in seen and employed.
Whilst seeking your purpose the “you” is destroyed,
as the seeker and sought collide in the void~

When all that seems real dissolves into place
and the formless abyss steals your name and your face,
your inner eye opens to the *One* seamless grace
and you rest in the clearing beyond time and space~

Take your place among the lowly,
Walk the path that Jesus walked,
There has never been one like Him,
With authority He taught.

With compassion, cast out demons,
Heaven's truths revealed to all,
Many wonders worked He daily,
Won the hearts of great and small.

But, when He stood facing Pilate,
Few there were who followed then,
Still, with Him, there was forgiveness,
For the souls of faithful men.

Because what they didn't know then,
As the lowly path He trod,
Was that He Who hung on Calvary,
Truly was the Son of God.

Details | Lyric |
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.

Wrapped in God's love,
gives you the rare ability to see
wonderful things never dreamed of,
beautiful things that will only exist in eternity

A silken veil is God's love,
encases your mind with thoughts divine
Your heart undergoes a transformation,
new angel wings are now perfectly aligned

Waiting to fly always on God's love,
is a soul changing metamorphosis
Ready to emerge into a new reality,
and float forever on winds of pure bliss

Outside of your cocoon, there's a new world opening up to you
The first flower you rest on, taste the nectar of eternity's dew

Details | Lyric |
1. Facing life courageously with eyes downcast
happiness and peace not part of the forecast
amidst proud siblings, the only one timid
uncertainty in the air, densely humid
fine drink for all but taking a thimbleful
for true protection, the gods get my handful
glued to excuses and flaws of temperaments
leaving the ungodly to make side comments.

Chorus
I run to the highest hills
I hide in the deepest caves
I put my trust on strong men
I breath the words of great kings
When I stumble and fall down
Jesus alone gives His hand
[Repeat]

2. Powers of men become diversionary
many unreal strengths, claiming to tonify
following masked demons to drop in centers
to acquire, to hold but nowhere rustic
drinks all to suffer spiritual dysentery
from a castle, jumping to a rotunda
to the things of God, becoming a rascal
a walking tapir in the midst of Tigers.

Chorus
I run to the highest hills
I hide in the deepest caves
I put my trust on strong men
I breath the words of great kinds
When I stumble and fall down
Jesus alone gives His hand
[Repeat]

3. He has suffered it all in his first coming
can come of age his glorious second coming
it is never too late by his reckoning
now is the time to have a rite of passage
men can brag and make you have a reverie
other gods can fight to seem in rivalry
but run to him for the clear and blameless dress
for when its time, his glow no one can repress.

Chorus
I run to the highest hills
I hide in the deepest caves
I put my trust on strong men
I breath the words of great kinds
When I stumble and fall down
Jesus alone gives His hand
[Repeat]

Angel of mine
Where have you been?
Searching my whole life 
For my forever friend

Angel of mine
Where did you go?
Looking for you
Finding only lost souls

If I could fly to where you are
If I could take flight here and leave
If I could fly to where you are
Close to you in my imagining

Angel of mine
When will we meet?
Shaped from the stars
Designed destiny

Angel of mine
Can you hear me?
Opened my heart
Partly whispering

If you are a part of my big plan
If you had wings long enough to reach
If you are a part of my big plan
Prayer screams are you listening?

My angel of mine 
Fallen down to the earth
Through my lonely eyes
Washing over all my hurt

Details | Lyric |
When life gets heavy
And one is crushed beneath its weight,
Brains can short-circuit
If misery does not abate.

Flooding emotions--
They block off the rational mind,
Thoughts that twirled wildly,
But they never fully aligned.

Numbness on cat's feet;
Fog-filled mind choked with confusion.
Frozen decisions
In the blackness of depression.

Friends say to rest now,
To read, pray--find some enjoyment.
Music is healing;
Balm for the pain of the moment.

God will restore all,
Though it may be a long season.
Loving and caring,
He will revive lasting reason.

You are the strength of my life,
you are my God
You are the strength of my heart,
my Holy Redeemer
You see me thru all the troubled
waters in my life
You bring me thru the fire,
cleansed and sanctified

Salvation chant:

When enemies surround me,
you deliver my soul safe from harm
When I call upon you Lord, you hear me
and protect me in your arms
You are the strength of my life,
you are my salvation
When you died on the cross,
you became my Resurrection

Salvation chant:

You are the strength of my life,
my Holy Redeemer
You are the strength of my heart,
you are my salvation
When you died on the cross,
you buried all my transgressions
When you rose from the grave,
you shined with pure perfection

Salvation chant

You are the strength of my life,
you are my God
You are the strength of my life,
you are my salvation

Keep on believing


When I think back... 
on my life so far,
the good and bad  
have shared equal time

Though ups and downs...
have been hard to face,
believing kept my faith alive


Chorus
So, keep on believing...
this evil world,
will try to break you down
So, keep on believing...
the waters may surround you, 
but you won't drown
So, keep on believing...
only faith can keep you,
anchored to solid ground


You may have tried...
foolish things,
to help to ease the pain,
to quell the deep fears inside

but, this old world...
will soon pass away,
only faith leads to eternal life


Chorus
So, keep on believing...
this evil world,
will try to break you down
So, keep on believing...
the waters may surround you, 
but you won't drown
So, keep on believing...
only faith can keep you,
anchored to solid ground

I've learned it's not money...
that will save you,
and keep you from harm

Trusting in God, 
who will never fail you,
and obey him him, 
when he sounds the alarm

Chorus
So, keep on believing...
this evil world,
will try to break you down
So, keep on believing...
the waters may surround you, 
but you won't drown
So, keep on believing...
only faith can keep you,
anchored to solid ground


so, keep on believing,
He'll never ever let you down
so, keep on believing,
He'll never ever let you down
so, keep on believing,
He'll never ever let you down

It creeped upon me slow and increased day by day
Something was draining all my spiritual food
I could not pray without being interupted the words kept slipping away
I could not sing praises making melody in my heart
I was not focused on him
My hope was built on nothing
My Peace had been disturbed
My whole body begin to shake and become weak
Everything good I  was once taught was being drained straight out of my head
No zeal to serve him
My Joy had been stolen
My mind was infested with worldly things
My feet walked another way
My memories of the thorns on his  HEAD were completly dead
Thinkings of his hands and feet being pierced bothered me no more
My fear of him was invisible 
My concern for my SOUL vanished as if it were never there
How could I allow this terrible thing to happen to me in such a short time
Why did I not GUARD my SOUL? I had to  have been out of my MIND!

STAY FOCUSED

Way back then we were young
We knew we had something going on
You had that glisten in you’re eye’s
That shone with streaks across the sky

We left that night way up in the sky
The day we had to let things lie
No time to say goodbye 
Only time to wonder why
We had something going on

Still remember that terrible day
The day we had to say goodbye
We loved each other like no tomorrow
Like We’re living on time that’s borrowed

There ain’t no time to weep
Memories loved ones time to keep
We’re with the ones we love
But only from high above

We’re there when you breathe
We’re there when you sleep
We’re there every day of the week
Love us like we’re here today

I died Because I Love You [Lyrics of Gospel Song] You are the one who walks on water, you’re the one who raises the dead The fact that you ever bother, leaves me so astounded. My existence is not perfect, nor ever could it be. Why you would ever bother, always amazes me. Chorus Lord, you hold me close so gently, when into your presence I come. With love and compassion, your quiet whispers become, “I died because I love you, and I’d do it all again. I suffered so intently, at the hands of earth’s men. I died because I love you, and I’d do it all again. **********Yes, I died because I love you, and I’d do it all again!”*********** Those words always touch my heart, and truly heal my soul. Just to know you love me, such love to grasp, enroll. For I’m a wretched sinner, no greater wretch could be, And yet, you said, “I died because I love you, I died on Calvary.” My heart aches when I falter, because it’s you I disappoint. But instead of a scolding, my forgiveness you appoint. It’s because you love me, that I’ve grown to love you too. And each time I hear you say those words, my love for you just grew. © Copyright 2012 Maureen LeFanue www.maureenlefanue.com

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.

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.

Every now and then a day comes when I just can't find the light
And I feel so dead inside
But I just can't run
.
I want to believe 
But I don't know what's left in me,
Lord I just can't run
.
So with all my might
And with what strength is left inside, I run to the Light
I run to the Light
.
And my bones are frozen cold
There's no life left in my soul
But I can't run away because I've no where else to go
.
Here I sit alone and crying
Afraid to live yet afraid of dying
Can I trust in someone that I can't see,
And I want to believe
Can You help me please?
There's no place that You can't find me
No place on earth that You are blind  
To this darkness in my soul that I try to hide
.
So with all my might
And with what strength is left inside, I run to the Light
I run to the Light
.
Then I come to still waters where You have always been
And in spite of all my sin You still call me friend.
You wash my soul with peace 
And my fears they melt away and I believe . . . 
That's good enough for me to face the brand new day
.
So with all my might
And with what strength is left inside, I run to the Light
I run to the Light

My heart said reach out to someone
 It said don't just try but do
Said there’s a great need
I could see its truth too

I listened and searched deep
Searched deep down inside

I can see the need
All around it surrounds
Runs through me
Maybe others can be found 
They will see the need
It’ll make a difference you will see

A first step let’s agree
Know it’s easier just to live
Let’s start just you and me
We’ll get much more than we give

It’s a different kind of love
But it’s nice to take a lead

I can see the need
All around it surrounds
Runs through me
Maybe others can be found
They will see the need
It’ll make a difference you will see

Help someone smile each day
Will feel like it’s worth it to stay
Be part of a new way

Yeah..

Umm, I can see the need
All around it surrounds
Runs through me
Maybe others can be found
They will see the need

Umm…

Cause I can see the need
All around it surrounds
Runs through me
Maybe others can be found
They will see the need
It’ll make a difference you will see

A difference you will see

Let the words I speak 
Be unto you
Let the one I seek
Be only you
And let my heart beat
Beat for you
And let my soul 
Burn for you
Til I'm consumed 
Until I'm consumed
.
Won't you take all of me
Until your image in me 
is all you see 
But You won't take what I won't give 
And my sin won't die until You live
Inside of me 
I feel I'm hangin by a thread
This old man just isn't dead
I keep reviving him instead of trusting You
.
So Let the words I speak 
Be unto you
Let the one I seek
Be only you
And let my heart beat
Beat for you
And let my soul 
Burn for you
Til I'm consumed 
Until I'm consumed
.
And when my day comes
To an end
And I look back at where I have been
Many roads I've traveled
Sure took a wrong turn now and then
I need You just as much right now, as I did back then
.
So Let the words I speak 
Be unto you
Let the one I seek
Be only you
And let my heart beat
Beat for you
And let my soul 
Burn for you
Til I'm consumed 
Until I'm consumed
.
Let there never be a doubt
That You changed me from the inside out 
It was only You all along
I could never be that strong 
On my own 
.
Let the words I speak 
Be unto you
Let the one I seek
Be only you
And let my heart beat
Beat for you
And let my soul 
Burn for you
Til I'm consumed 
Until I'm consumed
Until everything in me
Looks just like You

Crown of Thorns
A trace of thorns you are on my body, I am an eternal traveller, never stopping. You are the bitter predicament of my comfort, Traces of sensual pleasures - The mist of a veil is my constant reminder. You wound the stubble of my heartly thorns, I stand alone on the dusty conflagration Gazing towards an endless void, I am bridled with the burning pain of the thorns... My gaze tirelessly roves, Prickly are the thorns, With malediction entwined... I am drowning in a sweaty torrent, I am plunging into thorny depths, bloody and overworked from the struggle, I yield myself to the decision of fate.

I got nothin' but time on my hands
as I work in the fields all day long
O Lord, come and free my soul,
whenever I sing this here plantation song

I wanna be free
Take me to your mountain top
I wanna feel glee
I heard Canaan is a  beautiful spot

I've worked so hard for so many years,
it's a crying shame to be so sad
I've tried real hard to hold back these tears;
not to rattle these here chains,
not to stay so bitterly mad

I just wanna be free
Take a walk to your mountain top
It would make me and my wife so happy,
we both believe Canaan is a beautiful spot

Time always seems to pass so fast,
whenever I sing this here plantation song
I know one day you gonna come back,
O Lord, to make right this awful wrong

You gonna set me free,
so I can go rejoicing 
and singing on your mountain top
Me and my whole family
will tell everyone that Canaan is a heavenly spot

Coming from where I’m from
By Nate Spears
Published 2013 in “Death OF A Rose” By Nate Spears


Coming from where I’m from
Every day is a battle to survive 
War is in session 
Right before our eyes

Each day we battle lessons
Just to be in the running for blessings
Coming from where I’m from
We move rapidly on missions

The dead is alive with every walk of the lifeless 
Limited income withholds wealth
The living is near death
Spirits are stripped of guilt

Coming from where I’m from
Deprived wealth
Creates bad health 
In occurrence to this 
Good feelings are killed


The worst gets exposed 
As times get worse
Financial situations become a disaster
No man on earth can rehearse
 
The world is broken
Hunger brings harm
Coming from where I’m from
Dictatorship is not fond

The environment brings the need to shoot
These activities loosens the roots
We’re grounded by values as thin as a pin
We lose ourselves at falling rates like bowling pens

No free passes
Prisons filled in masses
Separated by classes
Coming from where I’m from.

Give them clear mountain lakes,   
And kid-friendly swimming holes,	
Rafts, rowboats, and canoes;        
Dads and sons with fishing poles.
Give them clear night skies,          
Filled with just enough moonlight	
To find shadowy paths--                 
Navigating by starlight.	

Give them old patch jackets          
To remind them of their tales:	
Camporees, jamborees,                 
And famous historic trails	
Give them some traditions            
From American folklore;	
Ashes saved from campfires,        
To teach them who went before.	

Give them Boy Scout handbooks,    
Lengths of rope with knots to tie,   
Multi-tool pocket knives,                
And young Scouts wanting to try.
Give them trails to follow,             
Maps and compasses to read.	
Stories around a fire, 	              
Patrols of Boy Scouts to lead.	

All Scouts want is just a chance        
To watch wildlife and touch native plants,
Go snipe hunting and backpacking,   
And earn merit badges for everything.
All Scouts want is just somewhere   
To swim and hike and breathe fresh air,
And to cook and laugh around a campfire.  
There’s just not much more for a Scout to desire.

MY SEARCH FOR ANSWER LEAD ME TO YOUR BOOK OF LIFE
FEELING CONFUSED AS DAY TURNS TO NIGHT
GUILTINESS OF THE ACCUSED DIMS MY LIGHT 
AT TIMES I DON'T KNOW WITCH WAY TO CHOOSE IN THIS FIGHT
SPIRITUALLY ABUSED TRYING TO DO WHAT'S RIGHT
I LOOK TO YOU TO LEAD ME THOUGH WHAT I GO THOUGH
MY TRUST IN YOU GROWS AS YOU PROVE TO SHOW
UNCONDITIONAL LOVE THAT I AM BEGINNING TO KNOW
YOU OPEN MY EYES TO LIGHT THAT I SEE
THANK YOU FATHER FOR PLACING YOU HANDS ON ME
MOLDING ME TO BE THE TYPE OF MAN YOU WANT ME TO BE
GLORIFYING YOUR NAME AS I RUN TO MY DESTINY
SEARCHING FOR SALVATION RECIPE
AFTER ALL I HAVE DONE YOU STILL SEE THE BEST IN ME 
AT TIMES ITS HARD TO BELIEVE YOU'VE FORGIVEN ME
BUT YOU CONTINUALLY SHOW ME YOUR LOVE AND GRACE 
COVERS ME 
FOR THAT REASON I WRITE PRAISE POETRY 
FOR THE REST OF MY DAYS GIVE YOU THE GLORY
I KNOW YOUR POWER GOES BEFORE ME 
CLEARING THE PATH YOU LAY BEFORE ME
HUMBLY I PRAY TO THEE 
ACKNOWLEDGING YOUR ROYALTY
THE PRESENTS OF YOUR HOLY SPIRIT 
MAKES ME REACT JOYFULLY
ITS A JOY TO BE A CHILD OF HIS MAJESTY 
LIVING LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY WITH OUT BOUNDARIES
EXCEEDING ANY WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME 
SPIRITUALLY CONNECTED TO YOUR DYNASTY
BECAUSE THE WORDS OF A KING LIVES INSIDE OF ME

You are a person i've met before.
The man who stands knocking at my door.
I remember you from my dreams,
Your eyes sparkle and your smile gleams.

You held the door open as I ran in for shelter from the cold weather & rain.
You are the man I stood next to in line.
You are the man I passed by
I danced as you sang the songs chorus.
I pushed my way through...
the sea of people and stopped next to you.
Amidst the crowd we stood, searching for a way out
I looked around, I glanced in your direction, I looked past you 
I found my way out, I hurried my way through.
I walked away having not met you.

A second glance, I did not take,
unaware that our meeting was fate.

You are a person i've met before,
Sometime ago on a night like tonight,
The air was warm, the stars shining bright
The night that we met,
I danced that night, I danced and danced until the morning light
I sat to lay my feet to rest, you came to me no different from the rest
You asked me for a cigarette.
An open chance to conversate 
knowing this interaction would not lead to a date
We shared thoughts and ideas of similar interests.
such as music and poetry, art and astrology.
At the time I thought nothing of it, a casual meeting of the mind.
Little did I know, I would continue to meet you throughout my lifetime.

You are a person i've met before,
I've read your book of poetry at the local book store.
you write of life, love and family.
You are a person i've met before,
I've seen your paintings, they are hard to ignore
You are the artist I dream of meeting
You are a person i've met before.

You are the man in my dreams, 
Your eyes sparkle and your smile gleams.
I've met you 100 times before,
You are the man who stands knocking at my door.

Come near,
so you can hear
Come near,
let me whisper life in your ear
Come close,
let me reveal a secret to you
The Garden of Eden is within your grasp,
reach out and taste the fruit
The fruit of the Spirit
is the divine food of holiness
It's the essence of God given to the blessed
Come taste the nectar of the fruit ---

Love:
it's the sweetest gift of God showered from above
Joy:
it's the baptism of happiness given to every girl and boy
Peace:
letting go of hurt and pain is the most gracious release
Longsuffering:
is the prince   ...   Tolerance is the queen ...   Patience is the king
Gentleness:
is the parent of every tenderly given caress
Goodness:
are the godly children of sacred obedience
Faith:
is your beloved spouse, your beloved soulmate
Meekness:
increases your compassion, as the anger grows less
Temperance:
is your best friend with the twin named Abstinence

There is no law given
that can supercede any of these
If you desire the pleasure of holy living,
then eat of the fruit of the Spirit liberally
