You will be born and adored,
you will scorn your parents,
for making rules you break,
just prior to idolizing friends,
without knowing God.
One day you meet God,
and you feel adored,
even when you are by yourself,
He lifts your distaste for your parents,
He gives you new friends,
There’s just one habit you cannot break.
If this one habit you could break,
you could find peace in God,
like your friends,
this habit you once adored,
this sin hidden from your parents,
it fosters a hatred for yourself.
You are stuck with yourself,
or else you’d make a clean break,
you’d confess to your parents,
you’d show your face to God,
and be once more adored.
You fall back in with old friends,
the demons bore holes inside yourself,
in the mirror a face that can’t be adored,
your habit no longer takes a break,
you have sworn off God,
you’ve been kicked out by your parents.
Like an orphan with no parents,
Like a loner with no friends,
you call up in desperation to God,
and surrender yourself,
you are full of heart break,
and you are once more adored.
Then your parents take you back in and you are adored,
your friends make amends but you’ve found a friendship no one can break,
it’s between God and yourself.

~In His Grace~
I'm absolutely certain that it's only by God's grace
That I could climb if I have to...that very high.. wall
God give us life all thru His loving care and fresh air
My God is really awesome, and He's loving and so very kind
And my heart with pride with all His love just swells
Because knowing and accepting His salvation makes me so happy.
In God's loving care I am always happy
Because I can depend always on His grace
God protects us and shields us from ocean's swells
And with Him we can ascend and descend any wall
He's in control of everything and the very same air
And my God is so loving forgiving and kind.
Like God's love there's no other because God is perfect and kind
And when I obey His Word and follow Him I feel very happy
God renews my heart and my lungs each day with clean air
He does it all for you and me because of His love and grace
With God by our side we can never lose but win and climb that wall
And living for God is better and my heart with all His love just swells.
With God's tender love and care I can forever live and my heart swells
Because I know without a doubt that His sweet love is one of its kind
And with God by my side I can climb or descend any high wall
Because God cares for you and me and that makes me really happy
Just knowing I can enjoy forever His most wonderful grace
I praise Him everyday for all the things I see,the sky, the sea... the air.
I see God's love manifested all over the earth the sea... the air
And all the creatures' hearts with God's shining love just swells
And the stars and the moon sing praises for His Mighty Creation and grace
Because of God's Love there's still Love Hopes and Dreams of every kind
Thinking of His love makes my heart day and night happy
Because God is my rock and to protect me He can build a wall.
And with God by my side I can climb and descend any high wall
He gives life to each of us everyday with tons of clean air
And when I choose to obey His Ten Commandments that makes me happy
Because with joy and serene peace my heart for God full of love swells
Knowing that God is so real, true forgiving and kind
And that I can always trust Him and enjoy forever His Blessed Grace!
With God's Grace I can descend and climb any tall wall
God fills my lungs with fresh air because He's so loving and kind
And my heart swells with all His love which makes me always so happy.

A vortex of wind dancing, with drums of thunder Waltzing, plunders the lands it turnsA partner revolves around the twisterThunderous beats escort the funnel cloudsDarkness split by flashes of lightning,The music and tone are set, for the cyclone Calm eyes in the storm amidst a lethal cycloneas in the tune of another drummer, this thunder,Thunderstorms of awe, so this dance turnsBeholding beautiful hues, of an intemperate twisterRed with dust this wonder, from the cloudsDarker still at night,from fright of lightning, Nightmares clash with the lightning,so goes a chaotic song, of the cycloneOn the hills, spinning to outbursts of thunderWinter dreams as the snow white whirl turnsIronic sisters are the natures of a twisterBefore the aftermath of the disastrous clouds, after beauty does cease, from benevolent cloudsMasters of destruction, with cracks of lightingEtching the land, as upheaval follows the cyclonelike locust and frogs, now plagues do thunder,as if, showing its true colors, when the tornado turnsOnce a beautiful sight to behold was this twister but destruction and misery follow the proud twister,Righteous job found out, from the passing clouds, Angels of light fall like the lightningNations are overturned, by the deadly cyclonebut as God’s love changes the sons of thunder, Tribulation and patience take their turns, The world continues, with all of its turns, The sun blisters, fire whirls like a twisterAwaiting true beauty, from the cloudsSuddenly, shining from east to west, like the lightningA world without death and a deceptive cycloneWe dance in the clouds, shouting victory like thunder Beauty turns as fast as lightningdancing clouds reveal the twisterA deadly cyclone roars with thunder
