Mercy

Mercy rolls over me
Like an ever rolling stream
Loves eternal fountain
Deeper than oceans depths
Your faithfulness kisses the highest mountain
Reaches the heavens above
Then stoops down from your throne
Touching me with love.

Beloved.

When all else fades and slips away
When oceans rage and mountains fall
When all seems lost and tall trees tumble down
My crumbling secrets lie bare upon your mountain of grace
Hope speaks over me
You will arise from this place
Courage speaks over me
Whispers my name
Beloved
Come away with me.

Prince of peace

Tranquility ripples across still waters of my soul
The storm has passed
Quiet and peace my resting place
Though your peace was there
When the thunder roared and the lightening struck
For you remain the same
Whether on the mountain top or valley below
You are constant
Steadfast
Faithful and true to your word
Always there
For those who draw near
To know
Everywhere
In all circumstances
You are
Prince of peace.

Ever increasing glory

Life giving creativity
Flowing like an ever rolling river
Moving with each bend
Squeezing its way through the narrowest bite
Powerfully rushing over mighty falls
Then cascading down
Caught up in the suns gaze
Rainbow filters splashing glory rays
Upon the earth
My life is complete in this movement
Simply here for His display
Not looking back
Just moving forward
Toward my final destiny
Heavens glory
Majestic King.

One word

Cast down
Never cast away
This hope lives longer than the setting sun
Enduring beyond eternity
From everlasting to everlasting
This hope moves me into faith
Helping me to see beyond my days on earth
Knowing I am no longer earthbound
I will endure
Undergirded with the strength that created mountains
That can move them with one word
Christ
The Rock of Ages
First and last
Beginning and end
He is the glory and the lifter of my head.

Future glory

Deep into God
How deep will I go
Upon this foundation
I will always grow
Built strong and pure
Of noble birth
This royal decent
Now my true worth
Bought with a price
That no man could pay
His eternal covenant
Causing me to rise this day
Rise with the hope of glory in Christ
His future promise
By faith is in sight
That now I know in part
Then shall I fully know
Gods love will always make a way
For His love will never cease to grow.

A house of faith

A house of straw built on grass
Looking through the looking glass
To see the future and the past
Through the test of time won’t last

A house of glass built on stone
The earth will shake the house will rock
A thousand pieces shattered on the land
This house of glass will never stand

A house of clay will last a day
The monsoon floods soon wash it away

A house of gold built on sand
The storms will come and shake the land
The fire will blaze and it will burn
The gold will melt never to return

A house of cards stacked up to the sky
The world will say come fly with me
Let’s dance this dance to the beat of chance
The winds will blow
The cards will fall
The dreams will crash
To their final call

A house of steel will bend and break
To the violence of the earth that quakes
All out of shape
All out of line
It was never built by His design

A house of faith built on His word
To hear and know
To trust in all His worth
To believe in the power of His might
To walk by faith and not by sight
This house of faith built on the foundation stone
The eternal love of God the rock
In Christ alone we’ll stand
All other ground is sinking sand
Only He can take me by the hand
Into my final resting place
The eternal house of God I’ll stay
Till then I’ll live in this house of faith today.
