Dear Merciful God,

I desire to burn

You are a consuming fire

It’s for You I yearn

 

An earthly world full of chaos

Without You I know I’m doomed

Shield me with Your love

I desire to not be consumed

 

I come to You in Jesus’s name

As I come holding His hand

If I can but burn forever

In your presence I could stand

 

Nothing on earth matters

If my soul I throw away

So make me fireproof this day

So with You, I can always stay

A clean leaf

A new start

A second chance

A familiar heart

 

I’ve caused hurt

I’ve done wrong

I’ll try my best

To turn around

 

I’ll share my time

I’ll hold you tight

Keep you close

‘Cause this feels right

 

Cheers to love

And happy endings

There’s always hope

In new beginnings

 

 

You no longer say anything

Or rather any thing of sense

You just talk and talk and talk

Maybe it’s about time you stop talking,

Put down the phone and get to walking.

1st step is easy.

Just shut up!

No longer accepting calls

No longer need my fill of you

I’ve had enough

I’m full

You’re full too

But you are full of nothing

And full of you

Get out of yourself

I’m sure you are sick of you too.

I’m sick of you

So sick of you.

Please shut up.

Just hang up!

Hang up the phone I said

Hang up the lies you tell

Hang up the masks you wear

Hang up the pain from hell

Swallow your pride

Keep it down.

Keep the phone on the hook.

No longer seek my dial tone.

Don’t do it again.

Forget my number.

Forget me.

So for the last time,

Please just leave.

Hang UP!

No One Here

No one here respects my time
Until they need me to be early
They'd rather just waste it
It's not that important, clearly

No one here respects my talent
Until they need some favour
They'd rather find someone else
Then check me in the last hour

No one here respects my opinion
Until something I said happens
They'd rather just ignore me
Because I chat far too often

No one here cares enough
Until everything falls to pieces
They'd rather avoid the problems
And hope the issue ceases

No one here...
No... you have to care.
One... person is all it takes.
Here... is your chance to make your stand.

Some... one... here.

And leave de rest.

And she ah go support ya.
So again I tell ya..
Whoaaa, man!
Please cause ‘er no woe man!
What you have is ah gem;
You have woman.

Stand

Alone in a crowded room she stood.
She stood up.
She stood out.
She stood firm.
With a broad smile dashed across her face;
She just stood.
I looked at her and I pondered;
Moments passed and I just wondered,
Why was she glowing the way she was?
What made her so elated?
It almost seemed as though she won… something.
Something was causing her to burst with happiness.
It was all over her face.
Clearly originating from a place…
Deep inside of her.
There she was standing.
I was barely comprehending;
Why?
All those around her blurred;
My focus was on her…
For as long as my attention could span.
But just before I was lost,
She opened her mouth
And she spoke.
She said

“I am happy”

I laughed to myself;
I already knew this.
But why are you happy?

“I met a man!
Not just any man.
I met Jesus;
And He died for me.
He loved me before I knew myself.
He loved me when I was lost in the world.
Now I stand,
Declaring to all here
That I stand because I have chosen
To follow My Jesus.”

Then I understood.
So then I too stood.
It was no longer just her
But now two;
Alone in a crowded room.

The Way In

I am trying to find my way.
I am looking for a way out.

Ever lasting life.
Ever wondered the way there?
Ever thought about it?
God did.
He thought about it for us.
He made a way for us.
He sent His son for us.
His son, our friend, our brother,
Christ Jesus.
Jesus declares “I am the way,
the truth, and the life”
What a truth.
He is the source of all life.
So follow Him.
Christ will lead the way.
The way in is simple.
Let ourselves out.
Out with selfishness.
Out with hatred.
Out with greed.
Out with pride.
Out with us,
And
Let Him in.
Emptying ourselves will leave room to be filled.
Jesus declares
“Bless are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness,
For they shall be filled.”
Fill us O God.
Fill us with Your love.
Fill us with You.
