Stars

You hung the stars. How could I forget? In Your hands there is wisdom  There is power in Your breath.  You took such care  As you planned our days  You counted the stars And called each by name.  We're never adrift Your love is eternal  It’s so lovingly written in the skies above. How great [...]

The Pines

The Pines

Do the Pines pine for days gone by When their leaves turn brown from the bite of plight? Do they look back longingly at stolen days When life becomes a desolate haze? Or do they hang on tight As they look ahead To better ways and days instead? You can't go back But you can [...]

The Sound of Rain

The Sound of Rain

Maybe you've heard it too often  The sound of falling rain  Perhaps it's left you longing  For sunshine once again. But oh the sound of falling rain  To me it's still a sweet refrain Maybe you're caught in the deluge And it's a struggle to hear the sweet song I understand the pain there  When [...]

Gentle

Gentle

Gentleness takes patience; It's aims to be kind; It prays without ceasing; it loses it's pride; It knows we're all flesh, so It looks for others best. These things it rejoices in. In God it abides. Gentleness is thoughtful; It chooses words wisely; it doesn't rush in with sword raised high; It was taught that [...]

Rest

Rest

It's a peaceful word  Yet I struggle to rest As I lean on my understanding  And what I believe is best It's a reassuring word No, we don't have to fret Yet I find myself weary From this match that I've met Why do I wrestle? Why do I fight? Why don't I surrender? And [...]
