Comfort Poems

A CHILD OF THE KING . . . June 1996 Message

Oh, what a joy, I’m a child of the King,
It makes me so happy, I want to sing.
I’m so very wealthy, beyond compare,
An heir of salvation; with Christ I’ll share.

Heav’n awaits, with my loving Saviour there,
When I arrive, life on Earth will seem bare.
My home in Heav’n is reserved for me,
Jesus, my Saviour, has indeed set me free.

A child of the King, without any doubt,
It makes me so happy, I want to shout.
My eternal home is my Father’s Home,
I’ll be with Him for e’er, ne’er more to roam.

A child of the King, what a wondrous joy,
Not ev’n Satan, my happiness can destroy.
Only my Saviour can give this confidence,
Heav’n is my destiny; there’s no suspense!

Access to God

God’s children to their Father, have access,
For the Spirit of Christ, they do possess.
We can go to the Father, night or day,
All prayers we submit, will be heard always.

God’s children have access, to His blessings,
Jesus blesses us, with so many things.
Redemption, atonement, justification,
And best of all, eternal salvation.

God’s children can access, His awesome love,
Which He dispenses to us, from above.
God loves us so much, He sent His Son,
But the world turns its back, and Him they shun.

God’s children can constantly, access His grace,
For we all need it, as we run our race.
His Throne of Grace is open, to you and me,
As we walk the road, to eternity.

God’s children, His forgiveness can access,
Because of Christ Jesus’, righteousness.
Our sins are cast, to the bottom of the sea,
When confession is sincere, in our plea.

God’s children have access, to His mercy,
Judgment is always done, compassionately.
Our Father will always treat us, fair and right,
For His children to Him, are a delight.

A FRIEND IN DEED

A Friend in deed, is what Christ is to me,
Always there to help, and always lovingly!
In times of trouble, He always comes thru’,
At any hour, His friendship rings so true!

I’m Jesus’ friend; and I’m always in need,
And when trouble looms, my pray’r He will heed.
His great comfort is only a pray’r away,
For He will answer, any time of the day.

This Friend is what my soul needs, all the time,
And that’s what Christ is, with His love so fine!
He will never forsake; nor will He leave,
He’s there all the time; my soul need not grieve!

The love of earthly friends, quickly flies away,
Not like the love of Christ, that’s here to stay.
The warmth and cheer of friends, we fondly treasure,
Let us down at times; a loss we can’t measure.

Jesus is a Friend, not in word, but in deed,
And all my spiritual hunger, He does feed.
I’m glad He’s not here today, gone tomorrow,
But a true Friend, in all my joy or sorrow.

A Great Lamp

Christ Jesus is, a Great Lamp to me,
As He leads me on, to eternity.
His Radiance, warms and cheers my way,
With Him near, I have a better day.

Without Christ, my path is dark and lone,
But with His radiance, great light is shown.
I need ne’er walk, in darkness deep,
Christ Jesus my Great Lamp, safely keeps.

Satan will not dim, my mind with doubt,
For my Great Lamp, will not e’er go out.
Christ Jesus helps me, brighten my faith,
I trust Him completely, with ev’ry breath.

A Great Lamp to me, is Christ my Lord,
I stay e’er so close to Him, by His Word.
His Light will always, be there for me,
Both today, and thru’ eternity!

A LOVING LORD

He has a loving Eye, that never sleeps,
Our precious Jesus does tenderly keep!
He watches over us, each day and night,
No matter our trouble, no matter our plight.

He has a loving Ear, that never turns away,
Wide open, to hear our prayers night or day!
He willingly waits for His children to come,
Then sends us His love, comfort, and wisdom!

He has a loving Arm, that is never weary,
He wants to help us, our load to help us carry.
He picks us up when we stumble and fall,
Our loving Lord is at our beck and call!

He has a loving Heart, gentle and warm,
Helping us thru’ life’s turbulent storms!
Care, concern, compassion, and forgiving too,
Such tremendous love, blesses me and you!

A MIRACLE . . . BELIEF IS

Belief can be a miracle, true,
A miracle, that can happen to you.
It can change your life spectacularly,
Belief gives you life, eternally!

Believing God can erase all sins,
A miracle; that with faith, begins!
We are justified, by Christ’s precious Blood,
‘Not Guilty’ in Heav’n, by this wondrous Flood!

Belief; a miracle, that sanctifies,
By trusting His Word, that never lies!
Set apart to serve our awesome Lord,
Spreading the Gospel set forth in His Word!

Belief; a miracle, that gives a new heart,
A ‘new’ creature, with a brand new start.
Children of God, and with Christ joint heirs,
One day the bliss of Heav’n with God we’ll share.

Believing is a miracle; true,
This miracle can happen to you!
Receiving Jesus makes you God’s child,
From Hell, you will always be exiled!

Salvation is a ‘Gift’ God gives to you,
A miracle; reserved for a ‘few’.
But most, by unbelief walk away,
From the greatest miracle to come our way!

A MYSTERY

What true love sees is a mystery,
God’s love sent His Son, to you and me!
Whosoever in Him does believe,
Eternal life in Heav’n will receive!

A deep mystery, is God’s true love,
Indeed a blessing, from Heav’n above!
In spite of all the times we do fall,
He’s always there, every time we call!

What true love sees is a mystery,
Never changing, in all eternity!
Our faith in Jesus, makes us God’s child,
And with the Father, we’re reconcil’d!

What does God see in a sinner like me?
Yet I’m His child, for eternity!
Our God’s great love, so wondrously true,
Forgives thru’ Jesus each day anew!

I’m praising Christ Jesus each new day,
His love on the Cross, He did portray!
He paid our sin debt and set us free,
What true love sees is a mystery!

Do we as God’s children true love show?
Our love, like a light, should surely glow!
Is our love like God’s? A mystery?
True love should be our identity!

A PRIVILEGE . . . May 2003 Message

A wondrous privilege, is that of prayer,
For Almighty God, truly does care!
God wants His children, in Him to abide,
Communication lines, are open wide!

Prayer can bring us instant relief,
For God can remove our sorrow and grief!
Prayer can remove our anxiety,
From all our worries, we can be free!

When we ‘talk’ to God, fear goes away,
Be it the night, morning, or mid-day!
To go to God in daily prayers,
Will help greatly, to dissolve your cares!

We can access God, in the night so still,
Great comfort from Him, your heart will fill!
We can go to Him in broad daylight,
Just He can chase away ling’ring fright!

When problems come up, I can’t solve alone,
Prayer helps the answer be clearly shown!
When I feel lost, and helpless and weak,
It’s a privilege, that to God I can speak!

When all my strength seems to dissipate,
He gives me pow’r, I can’t duplicate!
When all that I do just seems to fail,
His love and wisdom always prevails!

If you face a day that seems hopeless,
Go to God in prayer, and He will bless!
Don’t go it alone, or you will fall,
Use the privilege of prayer; and on God call!

A PROMISE . . . June 2008 Message

One day we’ll be winging our way on high,
We’ll be carried by angels, thru’ the sky.
This is a Promise, Christ Jesus has told,
Our last journey will be to that street of gold!

No more pain, nor sorrow, nor agony,
A Promise Jesus makes, to you and me.
No more crying in Heaven, no more tears,
Eternal bliss, with never any fears.

A Promise, of a “mansion” that awaits,
Angels will carry us, thru’ the pearly gates.
I look forward to this journey to come,
For angels will carry me, to my Home!

Hindrance by the devil, won’t be allow’d,
As we take our last journey, thru’ the clouds.
We’ll be taken to the Presence of the Lord,
A Promise that is made to us in His Word.

For each believer, a “mansion” is there,
A Promise from Jesus, because He cares.
This wondrous mansion, is reserv’d for you,
A Promise from God; trustworthy and true.

God’s angels will carry us home one day,
Where we’ll be with Christ Jesus, for always.
Eternal bliss, in our mansion above,
All because of our God’s amazing love!

A SPECIAL FRIEND

There’s a ‘Special Friend’ who’s glad to share,
Always there to give, to help, and care.
You warm the hearts of those you love,
You’re a ‘gift’ from Heaven, from God above.

You bring joy in such a special way,
There when someone needs you, night or day.
With gentle words and thoughtful deeds,
Seems you always know what others need.

Friends like you are not many; but few,
Those around can trust, and count on you.
To those who love you, you are so dear,
Your love and kindness, increases each year.

May you be happy in all you do,
And the good you’ve done, return to you.
May you be blessed, with love and great joy,
And happiness, no one can destroy.

Special friends like you, are very rare,
You just take the time, to show you care.
Though we are parted, by many miles,
Your loving friendship, makes my heart smile.

A SPECIAL SOMEONE

As you consider the day ahead,
Are you filled with joy, or is it dread?
Are you content, and have peace inside?
Or does worry and doubt, within you reside?

There’s a Special Someone, who can aid,
He can calm your fears, when you’re afraid.
He can bring great joy into your soul,
Just submit to Christ, give Him control.

He can help remove sorrow and pain,
And your heart will sing, a glorious refrain.
He can ease life’s turbulence and stress,

This Special Someone, can truly bless.
Anxiety leaves, calm comes to your soul,
When you submit to Christ, He takes control.
When you commit your heart and life to Him,
The troubles you had, seem O' so dim!

A STILL SMALL VOICE

A still, small Voice warns me when I sin,
Helps me resist, when trouble begins.
Tho’ Satan tempts with troubles galore,
A still, small Voice, my hopes restore!

A still, small Voice tells which roads to take,
When I obey, I make no mistake.
In life’s hard journey, I need a Guide,
This Voice advises, with Christ to abide!

A still, small Voice helps me run my race,
And tells me one day I’ll see His Face!
It tells me that I should persevere,
For my wondrous Lord is always near!

A still, small Voice impresses upon me,
Just thru’ Christ can I have victory.
For the Blood of Jesus justifies,
And that still, small Voice never lies!

A still, small Voice tells me I’m Heav’n bound,
This Voice to me, is the sweetest sound!
With Jesus, I’ll spend eternity,
And this will be bliss and ecstasy!

A TREASURE . . . GOD’S WORD IS

God’s Word is a treasure; each Promise a pearl,
The more that you study, the more He unfurls.
A spiritual gold mine, for one and for all,
Rich and poor alike, the big and the small.

I am an heir with all those who fear Thy Name,
This is so much better than earthly fame.
Thy testimonies always rejoice my heart,
A wonderful way, each new day to start.

God’s Holy Word, is a Treasure to me,
For it has led me to life eternally!
It turned me from darkness to glorious light,
All my horrid sins are now gone from His sight.

Of the heav’nly inheritance, I will partake,
For Christ Jesus, my Saviour; I did make.
Jesus is there, my “mansion” to prepare,
Reserved in my name, for He truly cares.

My treasures are where no one can steal,
But the world considers them to have no appeal.
I count all to be lost, except Christ my Lord,
My utmost Treasure, whom I found in God’s word.

What is your greatest treasure this day?
If it’s a worldly thing; it’s not here to stay!
If it’s God’s Word, and His precious Son,
Eternal blessings for you have just begun!

A Whisper in the Wind

A whisper in the wind, is Your Voice to me,
As You kindly guide me, to eternity.
Will I listen, to Your ever so soft words?
Or will I not heed, Your guidance, dear Lord?

A whisper in the wind, guides me to right paths,
Also leading me, away from Your wrath.
Softly and lovingly, You speak to me,
Out of the wind, blowing ever so free.

Your Voice in the calm wind, ever so soft talks,
Gently encouraging, the right way to walk.
Telling me to walk, with the Lord in His light,
Telling me to stay clear, of those of the night.

Whispering such gentle words, I need to hear,
Telling me of Your love, and that I need not fear.
Such wondrous love, I simply can’t comprehend,
It’s simply amazing, that You call me “friend.”

A whisper in the wind, is Your Voice to me,
As You guide me here, then receive me to glory.
I am so grateful, and will thank You always,
I’ll praise You now and forever, all my days.

No need for an earthquake, a whisper will do,
As the wind whooshes by, I’ll listen to You.
I want to be, who You want me to be,
Help me as I walk, to eternity.

ABOVE AND BEYOND . . . Dec.2005 Message

Above and beyond, Christ Jesus did go,
Enduring great pain, as He suffered so.
By God the Father, our Saviour was sent,
Willingly He came, and to the cross He went.

Above and beyond, is Christ’s love for us,
All God’s children, to Him are precious.
Loving us, guiding us, each day anew,
Christ Jesus looks after, God’s chosen few.

Above and beyond, Christ goes for me and you,
With an awesome love, that’s forever true.
He will never leave, He will not forsake,
If a commitment to Him, we will make.

As I do consider my life this day,
Do I love Him enough? Do I obey?
Do I go above and beyond, for my Lord?
Or do I turn my back, on Him and His Word?

Above and beyond, NO! I do not go,
I fall so short, causing Christ sorrow.
I must love Him more, with my heart, soul and mind,
Then vast treasures of blessings, I will find.

ACCESS TO GOD

Access to the Father can be direct,
But God’s own Son we must not reject.
Only Christ Jesus can justify,
On His love and mercy we can rely.

By faith are we saved, thru’ God’s grace,
All our wicked sins God does erase.
We are no longer God’s enemy,
We’re now His children, you and me!

We now have access to God’s great throne,
For Christ’s precious Blood did atone.
Direct access to God, day or night,
No matter our problem, or our plight.

To God, we have unlimited access,
He’ll answer our prayers, and He’ll bless.
Only Christ, this access can provide,
When in His vast power we do confide.

To God’s great throne you can have access,
And God will daily, abundantly bless!
Into God’s presence, by Christ alone,
In the Word of God, this is plainly shown!

Access to Heaven

You can’t access Heav’n, by works you do,
It’s just reserved for the precious few.
God made a Plan, so many years ago,
Only by Jesus’ Blood, can we go!

No rituals can give you Heav’n’s key,
Rituals just give you, Hell’s agony.
Jesus holds the key, He’s God’s only Plan,
Heav’n’s door opens only, for the Son of Man!

Great riches cannot open Heav’n’s gate,
No matter if you are, famous or great.
All gold is just simply, yellow earth,
In God’s eyes, you’re nothing, of no worth.

No matter your wisdom, or your pow’r,
You cannot gain Heav’n, for ev’n one hour.
God states that Jesus, is the only Way,
To e’er see Heav’n’s glorious array.

Christ tells us we must take the narrow road,
And walk close to Him, to reach Heav’n’s abode.
No matter what you think, there’s NO other way,
Just Jesus can get you to Heav’n one day!

ALL FOR THE LIKES OF ME . . . June 1999 Message & Feb.2013 Message

You left Heaven’s most splendid glory,
And came to Earth, for the likes of me.
You gave up comfort, for grief and pain,
That sinful me, might have eternal gain.

You left the beauty of Heaven above,
And came to man’s evil, all in love.
Tremendous sorrow and agony,
You did go thru’, for the likes of me.

You left Heaven, as great God and King,
And came to Earth, with simply nothing.
You became a humble Servant here,
For the likes of me, that I might not fear.

You left all of the Heavenly hosts,
Came to the sin, of the earthly coasts.
You left the praise and glory above,
And came down to the likes of me, in love.

You left it all; and here had no home,
Left riches; and in poverty, did roam.
Was not accepted, or recognized,
For the likes of me; ‘tis hard to surmise.

Wonderful Jesus, Saviour and Lord,
Died on the Cross, as told in your Word.
All done in great love, given so free,
To take sin away, from the likes of me.

ALL THE GLORY I NEED

Knowing Christ is all the glory I need,
Praise off’red us, we should not pay heed.
To our God belongs ALL praise and glory,
For He has given life eternally!

Accepting glory that is due our Lord,
Is simply something we can’t afford.
‘Twill be all the reward we’ll e’er receive,
Too, the Holy Spirit, we sorely grieve!

We don’t want to be as a Pharisee,
Taking as ours, God’s praise and glory.
Being “in Christ’ is all the glory I need,
Pride and conceit should die, and be buried.

All the glory I need each single day,
Is my Saviour, as Him I portray.
I must live each moment as He would live,
And forgiveness and love, I too must give.

Christ Jesus is all the glory I need,
All honor and glory is His indeed!
I’ll be content with life eternally,
In Heav’n with Christ, and His glory!

AMAZING BUT TRUE

‘Tis amazing, but it is so true,
Our Creator God, loves me and you!
He sent His Son to die for our sins,
When we believe, eternal life begins!

‘Tis amazing, but it is so true,
When we believe, God forgives me and you!
God will condemn those who won’t believe,
Rejection of Christ, means Hell you receive.

‘Tis amazing, but it is so true,
We’ll be accountable, me and you!
A dreadful sin to God, is unbelief,
Rejection of Christ gives eternal grief.

‘Tis amazing, but it is so true,
Belief makes us God’s friends, me and you.
He will make us His child, and His heir,
And the joy of Heav’n, we’ll all share.

‘Tis amazing, but it is so true,
Reserv’d mansions await me and you!
When to Christ, we open our heart’s door,
Abundant blessings from Him will pour!

‘Tis amazing, but it is so true,
God truly does love both me and you!
Everlasting glory waits above,
When we accept God’s amazing love!

Now only slightly, but one day Face to face.
We’ll live in His majestic Home on high,

He truly wants us His character to know.
He reveals Himself as we draw e’er so near,
As we fellowship with Him in reverent fear.

God’s amazing grace gives comfort and pow’r,
Ev’n in our most dreaded and woeful hour.
For Your encouragement, this child thanks You,

Amazing Love of Christ

Love urged Jesus, to leave Heaven’s safety,
To come to Earth, to pay sin’s penalty.
I can’t comprehend, Jesus’ kind of love,
Care, concern, compassion, just from above!

In Gethsemane, love made Jesus pray,
Let this cup pass, if there’s another way!
But there was no other way, He had to die,
He did not back down, He did not e’vn try!

Love made Jesus endure, His horrid fate,
Violent torture, Christ did tolerate!
Severe whipping, made His bones to be bare,
The Bible says: they look on me and stare!

Love allowed Jesus, not one word to say,
In His defense, on that horrible day!
He was delivered, because of envy,
His own people, refused to set Him free

The Jews demanded, He be crucified,
 Because of His blasphemy, He must die!
They stripped Him, and put on Him a scarlet robe,  
And a crown of thorns, on Him they bestow’d.

In love to us, He went up to Calv’ry,
To pay our sin debt, and set our soul free.
Such amazing love, I can’t comprehend,
Deep, heart-felt love, He could never pretend!

The love of Christ, I cannot comprehend,
The Almighty Creator, calls me friend!
I am not worthy, to put on His shoe,
Yet this Majestic God, loves me and you!

Better than life, is Thy lovingkindness,
My lips shall praise Thee, for You always bless.
For as long as I live, I will bless Thee,
I’ll lift up Thy Name, for eternity.

As I lay on my bed, and meditate,
I remember Thy love and goodness so great.

In Thy wings shadow, I’ll praise Thee always.

For Thy wondrous right hand upholdeth me.
Truly God hath attended to my pray’r,
Bless’d be God, for His love, mercy and care.

Scripture verses for above poem:
(Ps.63; 66:19-20; 84:11-12; 86:5-8)

BLESSINGS ARE AS SHOWERS

God’s blessings are as showers, from above,
Each little raindrop, is simply pure love.
Just as the rain blesses the dry parched land,
Gifts He gives are blessings from his Hand.

Showers of blessings, they ne’er do cease,
God truly blesses with joy, love and peace.
For raining blessings on all His children,
We must thank and praise Him, o’er and o’er again.

God’s blessings are shower’d on us each day,
His awesome love and grace He does display.
Blessings, like raindrops that caress our soul,
By Almighty God, always in control.

We need to thank God for blessings He gives,
For loving compassion, each day we live.
His wisdom in guiding, His tender watch care,
His forgiveness of sins; nothing can compare.

When you go in prayer to our awesome Lord,
Do you thank Him for things we couldn’t afford?
Ev’rything He gives is entirely free,
And His precious Son, Jesus is the Key.

Do God’s blessings come as rain from above?
Do you accept Jesus and His precious love?
Jesus is the Key to the Father’s heart,
Where Heav’n is yours, ne’er more to depart.

CALLED AND CHOSEN

Those called and chosen are privileg’d indeed,
For to Your Spirit, they do heed.
These “few” truly accept Your Son,
But most reject Christ, and Him they shun.

These that You call, open their heart wide,
So that the Saviour may come inside.
You touch these “few” in a special way,
As they come in pray’r, all thru’ the day.

So, so special are these very “few,”
For these all willingly, obey You.
It gives them great joy, Your touch to feel,
For Your awesome Presence, their soul does heal.

Called and chosen, an amazing thing,
For You reach out to these with special blessings.
Tho’ ev’ry one You call is unworthy,
Accepting Christ removes iniquity.

Many in the past, have felt Your Hand,
And You’ve blessed their efforts thru’ out the land.
Those You called that did not turn away,
Willingly love You, trust You and obey.

So many invitations, You do send,
It’s so sad that most, You do offend.
But the “few” who accept are privileg’d indeed,
For Your awesome touch, they did heed.

So very privileg’d and special, am I,
For the Lord’s call, I did not deny.
On my own, I’d never be worthy,
But praise God, His Son gave me victory!

I’m privileg’d to be one of the “few,”
For Lord, I believe and follow You.
You have touched me in a special way,
And I’ll be grateful, all my days!

CHILDREN OF GOD

A child of God, is truly blessed indeed,
No other option, will to Heaven lead.
We must be born again, spiritually,
Just God’s children, have life eternally.

We must hunger and thirst, for righteousness,
Or God the Father, will not ever bless.
God’s only begotten Son, is our Bread,
Denial of Christ, brings eternal dread.

For Living Water, we must truly thirst,
Or by Almighty God, we shall be cursed.
Out of our bellies, shall Living Water flow,
When we believe in Christ, God wants us to know.

The Kingdom of God, is righteousness and peace,
And joy in the Holy Ghost, that shall increase.
Jesus’ Words brings joy, that in us remain,
Ask and receive, for this joy is great gain.

Our God will pardon, all iniquity,
His anger is brief, He delights in mercy.
He has compassion, when we truly repent,
To the depth of the sea, our sins are sent.

An entrance into Heaven, we shall receive,
If on the Lord Jesus Christ, we believe.
For of His children, God is not ashamed,
His House and our House, shall be the very same!

Are you God’s child, as you read this today?
Do you believe God, do you trust and obey?
Do you with Jesus, walk the narrow path?
Or are you on Satan’s road, luring God’s wrath?

Christ Delivers Us

Christ delivers us, from the lowest Hell,
Belief in Him assures, there we won’t dwell.
In the Book of life, Jesus writes our name,
Faith in Jesus, removes eternal shame.

Christ delivers us, from the wrath to come,
We will not see, the Great Tribulation.
Being in Christ Jesus, we’re justified,
Jesus’ righteousness, to us is applied.

Christ delivers us, from the pow’r of darkness,
We’re God’s friends and children, whom He does bless.
A royal priesthood, let’s sing forth our praise,
The fruit of our lips, let’s gratefully raise.

Christ delivers us, from the curse of the Law,
Placing us under grace, where there is no flaw.
We’re cursed, if just one point of the Law we fail,
But God’s wondrous grace, has much to avail.

Christ delivers us, from this present world,
As all around us, evils are unfurl’d.
Christ was not of this world, neither are we,
He made us citizens of Heav’n, eternally.

Christ delivers us, from all evil’s pow’r,
Satan has no control, ev’n in his best hour.
If we submit to God, Satan will flee,
Christ delivers our soul, eternally.

Christ delivers us, from the presence of sin,
Delivered, from the bondage we were in.
One day we shall live, in God’s Home above,
Because of our God’s, great and awesome love.

CHRIST IS! . . . December 2014 Message

Christ is the Light, that shines in darkness,
The Light that can remove our blindness.
The Light that guides in paths I can’t see,
That leads us onward to eternity.

Christ is the Shepherd, of all God’s sheep,
The Shepherd whom our souls safely keep.
The Shepherd who supplies all our needs,
And to all our dangers, He pays heed.

Christ is the True Vine, that does empow’r,
The Vine that refreshes us, ev’ry hour.
The Vine that strengthens, so we endure,
He makes us holy, loving and pure.

Christ is the Bridge, from sinners to God,
The only Bridge, the wide world abroad.
The Bridge, crossing o’er judgment and Hell,
To a place where we, in bliss shall dwell.

Christ is the Key, to eternal Heav’n,
The Key to the mansion, God has given.
The Key to joy in eternity,
Where we’ll have peace and serenity.

Christ is our Saviour, our Lord and King,
The only Channel, to God’s blessings.
He’s our Redeemer, our debt He did pay,
That we might live, to see a better day.

This Jesus; what an amazing Man!
God’s only Son, who fulfilled His plan.
If you don’t know Him, He waits for you,
Open your heart’s door, to this Friend so true.

CHRIST IS AS NEAR . . . . . . June 2006 Message

Christ is no stranger, in a place far away,
For He makes His Presence known, each single day.
He’s as close as the breeze, that caresses my face,
For I know that He’s near, by His amazing grace.

Christ is as near, as the dew on the grass,
Sparkling in the sunlight, as slowly I pass.
He’s as close as the wind, rustling in the trees,
For I know that He’s near, as my spirit He frees.

Christ is as near, as a snowflake when it falls,
His Presence ever near, when on Him I call.
He’s as close as the raindrops, falling on me,
For I know that He’s near, watching so closely.

Christ is as near, as the sand ‘tween my toes,
His Presence to my soul, makes comfort flow.
He’s as close as warm sunbeams, on a cold day,
For I know that He’s near, as He guides my way.

‘Tis an awesome privilege, to have Christ near,
And when I call on Him, He calms my fears.
‘Tis a wondrous blessing, we have each day,
For dear sweet Jesus, is just a teardrop away!

Christ’s Coming

The day of Christ’s Coming, will arrive soon,
Will it be night? or morning? or at noon?
Most folk won’t be ready, for that great sight,
The Rapture will be, as a thief in the night.

The Rapture will be, for God’s people alone,
Only for those, His Blood did atone.
Christ Jesus will come, and His Bride He’ll take,
All others that day, Christ will forsake.

Will you at the Rapture, be left behind?
Are you watching for Him? or are you blind?
Do you go along with this evil world’s ways?
Or are you prepared, for this special day?

The Rapture will come, as in Noah’s day,
All will be at ease, going their own way.
We must watch, for we know not when He’ll come,
If we’re not ready, we’ll miss that trip Home.

Two people in one bed, one stays, one will go,
The one left behind, will have much sorrow.
For he the Great Tribulation will enter,
He will have to wait to see Heav’n’s grandeur.

Two together, working out in a field,
But only one to Jesus’ call will yield.
And the other one, will be left behind,
And his fellow worker, he’ll not find.

God’s true children, must do more than believe,
If all God’s blessings, they want to receive.
We must trust, but we also must obey,
If we expect to go, with Christ that day.

At any moment, Christ Jesus could come,
High in the clouds, to take His Bride home.
This should be considered v’ry carefully,
My friend, it might save you much agony.

CITY OF GOLD

One day I’ll walk on those streets of gold,
For I am His child, and in His fold.
I’ll go to that golden city so high,
And be so joyous, ne’er more to cry.

Christ has gone on to prepare a place,
Someday soon, I’ll see His glorious Face.
He will come again for me and you,
For all who believe, and to Him are true.

That city of beauty, made of pure gold,
And the glory of God we’ll behold.
No need for the sun or moon to shine,
The glory of God will lighten so fine.

That holy city, New Jerusalem,
Will come down from God, as a fine gem.
He shall be our God, holy and true,
We shall be His people, me and you.

If you know our Saviour, Christ the Lord,
You’ll see this city on your own accord.
You too will walk on those streets of gold,
Heir to His Kingdom of beauty untold!

CLOSE TO ME

I can hear Him say: Walk close to Me,
For to life’s problems, I hold the key.
I can help you, your burdens to bear,
I love you dearly, and I do care.

When life’s paths, get foreboding and dark,
Walk in My light, and to Me do hark.
Walk close to Me, I can hear Him say,
For I can make it, a brighter day.

Walk close to Me, Jesus gently states,
Life’s snarls, I can help eliminate.
Chaos that baffles you, I’ll help clear,
My child, I’ll assist, I’m always near.

Walk close to Me, my Master declares,
For no one else, with Me can compare.
I’ll give you wisdom, I’ll give you pow’r,
For I’m with you always, ev’ry hour.

Walk close to Me, my Friend speaks low,
For I will guide you, where e’er you go.
I’ll be with you, ev’ry step of the way,
Loving and caring for you, each day.

Walk close to Me, ‘tis my Shepherd’s voice,
And each time I hear, I simply rejoice.
When I stray, He brings me back to the fold,
His rebuke to me, is worth more than gold.

Walk close to Me, my Saviour does say,
As I get closer to Heav’n each day.
Only Christ Jesus holds Heav’n’s one key,
And just He can give, life eternally.

COMFORT COMES

Comfort comes when pain is more than I can bear,,
The Lord Jesus arrives, my burdens to share.
He may not always take all my pain away,
But His comfort comes, and will last thru’ the day.

Comfort comes when sorrow immerses my soul,
The Lord Jesus is there, taking full control.
I still may suffer and I still may grieve,
But the Presence of Jesus never does leave.

Comfort comes when persecution is fierce,
The Lord Jesus gladly my suffering does pierce.
It seems there’s people who love to oppress,
But His comfort comes, as He truly does bless.

Comfort comes when tribulation sets in,
The Lord Jesus sees that my troubles I win.
I know that hardships will come ev’ry day,
But comfort comes when Jesus lights the way.

Comfort comes when I have total distress,
The Lord Jesus steps in, and releases my stress.
I know things in life won’t always be right,
But comfort comes with His wisdom and might.

Comfort from God comes in so many ways,
Power and mercy and love He displays.
His forgiveness is great encouragement,
And His awesome grace is always sufficient.

Ev’ry detail of my life, was re-arrang’d.
Before, there was turmoil, hatred and sadness,
Now, there’s serenity, love and gladness!

Fill’d with love and pow’r, to the uttermost.

A wondrous feeling, I truly enjoy.

That You will fill me, to overflowing,
With peace, joy, contentment and love,
‘Til that precious day when You call me above!

FAITH CAN’T BE UNANSWERED

Faith can’t be unanswered by God,
No matter where, here or abroad.
Your faith pleases the Almighty One,
Eternal life thru’ faith has begun.

Faith won’t be unanswered by Him,
No matter when, morn or night so dim.
Your faith is precious to our Lord,
It’s simply taking God at His Word.

Faith is believing what God does say,
It’s trusting completely, night or day.
God won’t turn His back ever on you,
He will answer your faith so true.

Faith is not having one single doubt,
It’s knowing He will show the right route.
With His children’s faith, God is pleased,
Just go to Him, He’ll always appease.

Faith is always answered by Him,
Even tho’ to you things look dim.
God won’t ever turn His back on faith,
Not even when you take your last breath.

When we have faith, we have hope beside,
For the love of God in us does abide.
Hope of eternal life that He gives,
Thru’ answered faith, yet while we live.

For the wondrous grace of God, does abound!

In paths of righteousness, He always guides right!
Tho’ trials and sorrow may come to me today,
God’s love seems best, as He casts my fears away!

There’s no darkness, when we in Jesus, abide,
We’ll walk in the Light, if we follow our Guide!
No greater Light will this world ever see,
God’s love seems best, when He gives victory!

Whatever your grief, or whatever your care,
There is no sorrow, that He’ll not help you bear!
In ev’ry burden, or heart-felt agony,
God’s love seems best, when He shows sympathy!

And in His awesome grace, find sweet repose!
When you rest in Jesus, you’re safe evermore,

HE’S ALWAYS THERE

I will never leave you nor forsake you,”
A wonderful promise, one He will do.
Do you have troubles, doubt, sorrow or fear?
God wants you to call Him, He’s always near.

God never changes, as the world wants to,
He’s always the same; faithful, loving, true.
Many struggle, as they do things their way,
But He’s always there, to help when we pray!

I’m with you always, to the end of the age,”
Such great comfort, as we read from His Page.
It does not matter, what troubles you’re in,
He’s always there, when you turn to Him!

I will help and uphold thee, with my right Hand,
His support is there, when we take our stand.
His presence in near, we’ll not be ashamed,
He’s always there, this blessing we’ve gained!

Great the afflictions of the right and just,
But trust and obey; to Him it’s a must.
The Lord is so good to help us along,
He’s always there, alone or in a throng!

He’s a ‘Light’ in the dark, gracious and true,
Full of love and compassion, to help you.
Fix your heart on the Lord; cast out your fear,
He’s always there, now, tomorrow; so near!

Once you confess Christ as Saviour and Lord,
You must walk with Him in willing accord.
Trials come; but where you go or what you do,
He’s always there, that He may help you thru’!

If you walk alone beside a stream,
So perfect in beauty, as if a dream,
He is there with you, along your side,
Always wanting with you to abide.

What if you should just happen to be,
In a bustling crowd, in a big city?
Do you possibly think He’d leave you?
No, my dear friend, He’s always true!

But what if you would happen to do,
Some sinful thing that you ought not to?
He won’t leave, but He will be upset,
Ask His forgiveness; He paid the debt.

Once you’re a child in God’s family,
He’ll never leave you; He walks closely!
Though He does get displeased at times,
When we truly repent, all is fine.

A wondrous feeling, down in my heart,
The ‘peace’ He’s giv’n, shall never depart.
I know for a fact; without a doubt,
He’s always with me, always round ‘bout.

God is symbolized many ways in His Word,
One way is a large and protective bird.
With His feathers, He shall cover thee,

When with the Lord Jesus, we do abide.
We can run to Him, and find safety there,
We can forget all our worries and cares.

His lovingkindness is wondrous indeed,
When to His Holy Word, we truly heed.
Under the shadow of His wings, we can trust,
But our believing in faith, is a must.

My soul trusteth in Thee, ev’ry new day,
You are my Refuge, as I go my way.
To the shadow of Thy wings, I run fast,
Until calamities, be overpast.

If we be perfect thru’ Christ, and upright,
Fearing, revering God; things can be bright.

Till we behold Him, in Our Heav’nly home.

Satan shall buffet our body so weak,
Let us remember; our Saviour, so meek.
No one who has e’er walked here below,
Has been thru’ the suff’ring that Christ did know.

Shall we receive only good from God’s Hand?
When His only Son agonized on this land.
If we remember to give God first place,
He shall be with us as we run our race.

Bad things may come on our pathway of life,
That which we fear the most, may cause us strife.
Let us not lose our faith, nor trust in Him,
And that long pathway will never be dim.

Great troubles may come when we least expect,
And over our lives, we may then reflect.
“What did I do to deserve this? why me Lord?”
Then we recall what He says in His Word.

He knoweth exactly the way that I take,
He’s watching to see the progress I make.
God makes us a promise, one He won’t break,
I will never leave you; never forsake!

Many mansions are in God’s House, so great,

Jesus has told us He went to prepare,
He will come again, we need not despair.

These mansions are there; His Words are true.
If they were not, He’d have told me and you.
A mansion awaits each and ev’ry one,
That has accepted Jesus, God’s Son.

One day He’ll descend from Heav’n, with a shout,
If you belong to Him, He’ll call you out!
The dead in Christ are first to hear their name,
Then too, we which are alive and remain.

IF we BELIEVE Christ died and rose again,
We’ll hear our name, called out so plain!
We’ll be caught up together in the clouds,
To meet the Lord in the air, with the crowd.

We know not what hour our Lord doth come,

MANY PROMISES

Rescind a Promise, God will never do,
Whatever He states, consider it true.
Our precious Saviour, cannot ever lie,
Because of this, on Him we can rely.

The Lord keeps a sharp eye, on how we live,
And when we confess sins, He will forgive.
Our great God, has compassion and mercy,
On all those who love Him, like you and me.

God makes many Promises, in His Book,
But most people, don’t even think to look.
God makes Promises, to those who love Him,
But to the wicked, a destiny so grim.

God promises His children, such great things,
He provides for us, abundant blessings.
Here in this life, and thru’ eternity,
Wonderful Promises, for you and me.

God promises unbelievers, things too,
His just and holy wrath, comes into view.
All who refuse God’s one and only Son,
Are on the big, broad road, to perdition.

God makes a Promise, a mansion above,
To all who obey, and turn to Him in love.
God also makes a Promise, Hell below,
To all who reject Him, and don’t follow.

It is your choice, the Promise that you claim,
Heav’n can be yours, IF you go in His name.
But the Promise of Hell waits, agony,
If you turn away, in apostasy.

MY ADVOCATE

Satan stands firm in accusing me,
Of all my sins and iniquities.
But I need not worry ‘bout my fate,
For in Heav’n, I have an Advocate!

Satan accuses with mighty roars,
But he’ll never keep me from Heav’n’s door.
My Advocate always takes my side,
I’m secure, what ever may betide!

The devil accuses constantly,
I’m weak, and full of iniquity.
But my Advocate by me does stand,
An ultimate blessing, O so grand!

Satan’s accusations never quit,
But the Blood of Jesus does acquit.
My Advocate the Father will hear,
With Him on my side, I’ve nought to fear!

Tho’ Satan accuses, I have won,
The Father findeth no wrong I’ve done!
My wondrous Advocate stands up for me,
Frees me from sins and iniquity!

Tho’ my disquieted foe accuses,
God won’t hear him, He simply refuses.
Satan names all my sins, one by one,
Christ’s Blood paid for them all; I have won!

I will never leave thee, never forsake,
A Promise my Saviour, to me does make.
My Constant Companion, comfort does bring,
Comfort is just one, of many blessings!

The awesome Holy Spirit, for ev’r shall abide,
A blessing to know, that in Him I can confide.
He is always there to help, in time of need,
But we must remember, to Him we must heed.

From the Father proceeds, my Constant Companion,
And He does testify of Jesus, God’s Son.
He shall glorify Christ, and show it to you,
He speaks only the Truth of God, thru’ and thru’.

The Holy Spirit is a Witness, to the Lord,
 To listen to Him, brings us great reward!
My Constant Companion, wants me to witness too,
And He also desires, the same thing for you.

My Constant Companion, wants me to obey,
To do things of the Spirit, each and ev’ry day.
We are to avoid, worldly and fleshly things,
For our obedience, shall grand blessings bring.

The Holy Spirit tells me, that I am God’s child,
Ev’n tho’ the devil maintains, that I am defil’d.
He also helps me, when I know not what to pray,
Making intercession for me, all of my days.

My Friend will be with me, till my days on Earth end,
 Ever so near, and from the devil He defends.
My angels will join us, when it’s my time to leave,
A blessing indeed, there is no need to grieve!

MY REWARD . . . Oct.2006 Message

Serving You, Lord, on that street of gold,
My reward will be, Your Face to behold.
Being with You, is enough for me,

There’s no greater reward, in eternity.
Lord, let me serve You, for ever more,
As I live on Heav’n’s eternal shore.
No greater reward, could there be for me,

Than serving my Lord, eternally.
To be with my Lord, who for me died,
Reward for me, is with Him to abide.
I could never His great love repay,

My reward, to be with Him every day.
A reward I simply do not deserve,
My soul in Heav’n, You will preserve.
Abundantly each day, You bless me here,

‘Tis such a privilege, to know You’re near.
You shall grant a reward, for staying true,
A “rest” for me has been prepared by You.
An inheritance, that will never fade away,
Joint heirs with Christ, for eternity’s days.

‘Tis God’s good pleasure, this Gift to give ,
Everlasting, is the life I shall live.
By our awesome God this is prepared,
A reward for His children, for He cares.

Is the reward of Heav’n waiting for you?
Believing God in faith, is what you do.
Only by faith can you ever succeed,
Blissful Heav’n awaits, when you take heed.

But our wondrous God, you must obey,
And walk with Christ in the narrow way.

No matter what, God’s mercy is near,
Penalty of sin, we need not fear.
Christ paid our debt, as He hung on the Cross,
But, if you reject Him, Heav’n is lost!

No matter what, you can sense God’s grace,
And one day soon, you can see His Face.
But you must be “born again” Christ states,
Or the pits of Hell shall be your fate.

God forgives, no matter what we’ve done,
But you must trust Jesus, God’s only Son!
His precious Blood will wash you white as snow,
And generous blessings He’ll bestow!

No matter what, your past you can shed,
All those horrid sins, that cause you dread.
God will forgive, if our sins we confess,
He removes our guilt as He does bless!

No sin is too great for Him to cast out,
But we must obey, and go the right route!

NO MORES OF HEAVEN . . . May 2015 Message

The beauty of our God’s Heaven can’t be told,
It’s unspeakable; and one day we’ll behold!
There’ll be so many things that won’t be there,
I’m looking forward to climbing that stair.

No more pain from troubles or labors long,
No more sickness, no disease; nothing wrong!
No more heart attacks, no cancer, no doctors,
No more old age, no more death held in store.

There shall be no more funerals, e’er again,
No parting, no families, broken by men!
No more poverty, no hunger, no more thirst,
No more afflictions that need to be nursed.

No more oppression of the poor weak folk,
No injustice, that would take their only cloak.
No more suffering, no confusion, no more stress,
No more war, no more crime, no more wickedness!

No more evil, no hatred, and no more lies,
No drunkenness, no hard feelings to deny.
No more meanness, no ugliness, no more strife,
I can’t ev’n imagine this kind of life!

No more pride, no stubbornness, no more fear,
No depressing moments will e’er come near!
No disappointments, no more heartaches deep,
No more worry, no more loneliness to reap.

No more sin of any kind; Satan is gone!
No one to discourage; ‘twill be a new dawn!
Do you want to go to this marvelous place/
Just accept Jesus, you’ll go by God’s grace!

I can’t imagine, how life will be,
In the Heav’n’ly realm of eternity.
My mind simply cannot comprehend,
That all God’s people, will in harmony blend.

Beyond description, is the beauty of Heav’n,
Too, the eternal rest, God has giv’n.
We’ll walk in peace, on that golden street,
And never an enemy, shall we meet.

Peace, joy, comfort, and eternal bliss,
‘Tis hard to even consider this!
An amazing City, gleaming bright,
We’ll walk in Jesus’ glorious Light.

As we pass thru’ Earth, on life’s journey,
Steadily onward, to eternity.
God gives us two roads, from which to choose,
On one road, we win, the other, we lose.

As you consider these words that I say,
Which road are you traveling this day?
Only Jesus can give you Heav’n’s key,
To a home in this dazzling City.

ONE TRUE FRIEND

When the great trials of life get you down,
When painful tribulations make you frown.
There is one true Friend, ever so near,
He will help bear your burdens, and calm your fears.

When all those you thought were friends, forsake you,
When you find their promises were not true.
There is one true Friend, who will never leave,
He will prove Himself, every time you grieve.

When absolute sorrow touches your soul,
When weeping and mourning takes full control.
There is one true Friend, always by your side,
He whispers softly, “In you I abide.”

When you think you can’t take any more pain,
When storms roll in, and all you see is rain.
There is one true Friend, who can make the sun shine,
As He sheds His great Light, ever so fine.

When doubt and worry makes peace fly away,
When troubling thoughts attack, day after day.
There is one true Friend, your peace can restore,
He will grant peace, joy, comfort, and much more.

When we trust and obey, Christ is our Friend,
He will be with us always, to the end.
But we must love others, the same as He,
Only then will we have life eternally.

I’m with you always, to the end of the age,”
Such great comfort, as we read from His Page.
It does not matter, what troubles you’re in,
He’s always there, when you turn to Him!

I will help and uphold thee, with my right Hand,
His support is there, when we take our stand.
His presence in near, we’ll not be ashamed,

Great the afflictions of the right and just,
But trust and obey; to Him it’s a must.
The Lord is so good to help us along,
He’s always there, alone or in a throng!

He’s a ‘Light’ in the dark, gracious and true,
Full of love and compassion, to help you.
Fix your heart on the Lord; cast out your fear,
He’s always there, now, tomorrow; so near!

You must walk with Him in willing accord.

If you walk alone beside a stream,
So perfect in beauty, as if a dream,
He is there with you, along your side,
Always wanting with you to abide.

What if you should just happen to be,
In a bustling crowd, in a big city?
Do you possibly think He’d leave you?
No, my dear friend, He’s always true!

But what if you would happen to do,
Some sinful thing that you ought not to?
He won’t leave, but He will be upset,
Ask His forgiveness; He paid the debt.

Once you’re a child in God’s family,
He’ll never leave you; He walks closely!
Though He does get displeased at times,
When we truly repent, all is fine.

A wondrous feeling, down in my heart,
The ‘peace’ He’s giv’n, shall never depart.
I know for a fact; without a doubt,
He’s always with me, always round ‘bout.

Satan shall buffet our body so weak,
Let us remember; our Saviour, so meek.
No one who has e’er walked here below,
Has been thru’ the suff’ring that Christ did know.

Shall we receive only good from God’s Hand?
When His only Son agonized on this land.
If we remember to give God first place,
He shall be with us as we run our race.

Bad things may come on our pathway of life,
That which we fear the most, may cause us strife.
Let us not lose our faith, nor trust in Him,
And that long pathway will never be dim.

Great troubles may come when we least expect,
And over our lives, we may then reflect.
“What did I do to deserve this? why me Lord?”
Then we recall what He says in His Word.

He knoweth exactly the way that I take,
He’s watching to see the progress I make.
God makes us a promise, one He won’t break,
I will never leave you; never forsake!

NO MATTER

No matter your trouble, Jesus is near,
His loving compassion, your heart will cheer.
His abiding Presence, is always with you,
No matter your problem, He’ll see you thru’.

Some will exoerience, great sorrow and woe,
But Jesus is with you, where e’er you go.
Great peace is within, when you walk with Him,
Your darkest troubles, grow wondrously dim.

With each passing moment, He knows where you are,
No matter the nation, be it near or far.
He knows the end of things, ‘fore they’ve begun,
That’s our precious Saviour, God’s only Son.

All your troubles, to the Lord you should take,
He’s always there, He won’t leave or forsake.
Troubles may come in great severity,
But when you trust Jesus, you’ll have victory.

You may experience, much sorrow and pain,
But comfort from Jesus, is such great gain.
No matter how bad, He can see you thru’,
If you are God’s child, He dearly loves you.

NO MATTER WHAT

No matter what, you can be forgiv’n,
Your eternal home, can be in Heav’n.
But our holy God, you must believe,
His beloved Son, you must receive!

No matter what, God’s great love is there,
Free and abundant, because He cares!
But our wondrous God, you must obey,
And walk with Christ in the narrow way.

No matter what, God’s mercy is near,
Penalty of sin, we need not fear.
Christ paid our debt, as He hung on the Cross,
But, if you reject Him, Heav’n is lost!

No matter what, you can sense God’s grace,
And one day soon, you can see His Face.
But you must be “born again” Christ states,
Or the pits of Hell shall be your fate.

God forgives, no matter what we’ve done,
But you must trust Jesus, God’s only Son!
His precious Blood will wash you white as snow,
And generous blessings He’ll bestow!

No matter what, your past you can shed,
All those horrid sins, that cause you dread.
God will forgive, if our sins we confess,
He removes our guilt as He does bless!

No matter what, you can feel God’s love,
Everlasting and true; from above!
No sin is too great for Him to cast out,
But we must obey, and go the right route!

ONE TRUE FRIEND

When the great trials of life get you down,
When painful tribulations make you frown.
There is one true Friend, ever so near,
He will help bear your burdens, and calm your fears.

When all those you thought were friends, forsake you,
When you find their promises were not true.
There is one true Friend, who will never leave,
He will prove Himself, every time you grieve.

When absolute sorrow touches your soul,
When weeping and mourning takes full control.
There is one true Friend, always by your side,
He whispers softly, “In you I abide.”

When you think you can’t take any more pain,
When storms roll in, and all you see is rain.
There is one true Friend, who can make the sun shine,
As He sheds His great Light, ever so fine.

When doubt and worry makes peace fly away,
When troubling thoughts attack, day after day.
There is one true Friend, your peace can restore,
He will grant peace, joy, comfort, and much more.

When we trust and obey, Christ is our Friend,
He will be with us always, to the end.
But we must love others, the same as He,
Only then will we have life eternally.

OUR LIFE SAVER

Our life is like a turbulant sea,
As Satan tries to control our destiny!
Only Christ can give comfort and peace,
Just Jesus gives joy that will never cease!

Life’s like a storm with vast angry waves,
Just Christ can keep us; just He can save!
Life’s troubles at times engulf us, it seems,
We must turn away from Satan’s schemes!

Our life is like a violent wind,
Only Christ that fury can rescind!
Satan tries to guide us on the wrong path,
He tries desperately to raise God’s wrath.

Life can be like someone ready to drown,
But when we grasp for Christ, Satan frowns!
We can trust Jesus to throw us a rope,
When trials of life take away our hope!

A Life Saver; a Rope to hold on to,
Christ is always there to see us thru’!
He’s always there, to the very end,
Not anywhere, is there a better Friend!

This wondrous Friend; do you truly know Him?
Life without Him can be bitter and dim!
He’s our Life Saver, now and always,
For without our Lord, we are Satan’s prey!

PEACE TAKES CONTROL

Peace takes control, when my sins I confess,
In my quiet time, O Lord You truly bless.
You’re slow to anger, with abundant mercy,
Your forgiveness, gives complete serenity.

In my quite time with You, peace takes control,
Such amazing peace, flowing thru’ my soul.
This fellowship with You, I truly need,
Many thoughts do come, on which my soul does feed.

Peace takes control, in these quiet times always,
Giving me wisdom, to help me live my days.
I feel Your awesome Presence, ever so near,
It hurriedly chases away any fears.

Peace takes control, urging my heart to be still,
Quietly I listen, that I may know Your will.
Lord, I feel Your vast love, O so near to me,
This love You give, comes unconditionally.

Peace takes control, and my faith does increase,
In this quiet time, comfort never does decrease.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all within me,
Praise His awesome Name, for all eternity.

Peace takes control, O Lord You truly bless,
In these quiet times, my soul You do caress.
O Lord, I thank you for your amazing grace,
I look to the day, when I meet You Face to face.

QUALITY TIME

Time spent with Jesus, just you and He,
This time is precious, it’s quality.
You’ll never regret, not one moment,
Any time with our Lord that you’ve spent.

‘Tis such a blessing, to spend some time,
With our Saviour, and His love so fine.
Time spent with Jesus, is of great price,
All other hours, cannot suffice.

Time spent with Jesus, is time so dear,
It is wonderful, to have Him near.
All my doubts and fears, fly far away,
He gives joy and peace, for e’er to stay.

A remarkable Friend, He is to me,
Time spent with Him, is pure quality.
His counsel to me has great value,
With untold wisdom, and always true.

‘Tis quality time, spent with my Lord,
Walking with Him, and reading His Word.
The most desirable part of the day,
Choice, select, and outstanding, alway.

O what a blessing I do receive,
Such a blessing, I want not to leave.
Quality time, spent with my Saviour,
Nought can compare, ‘tis joy and grandeur.

SUCH A PRIVILEGE

Such a privilege, beyond compare,
To know my Saviour is always there.
Whether comfort, or pain, I know He’s near,
Mid-day or dark night, I’ve nought to fear.

My Lord and Saviour calls me “friend”,
And to all my needs, He does attend.
This privilege is hard to believe,
But to this great promise, I will cleave.

Such a privilege; I’m His family,
Not just now, but for eternity.
His Home, will one day be my home too,
Because of His mercy, and love so true.

Such a privilege; this love He shows,
And to ALL God’s children, it does flow.
Gracious, merciful love He reveals,
In sorrow and woe, or comfort and weal.

A privilege to know, our sins are gone,
We are no longer the devil’s pawn.
We are forgiven, thru’ Jesus’ Blood,
I’m so grateful, for that precious Flood.

Such a privilege, God’s children possess,
The world CANNOT know, how God does bless.
It gives great joy, and peace to my heart,
To know my Saviour, will NEVER depart.

THE SPECIAL MAN

Walking down a lonely, dusty street,
A Special Man, with sandals on His feet.
Love beamed from His glorious Face,
Love that came from His Heart, wondrous grace.

This Special Man; when He look’d at you,
Could see your very soul, thru’ and thru’.
What an Awesome Man, to know all things,
Knew your thoughts, ‘fore from your mouth they’d spring.

He was so loving, patient, and kind,
Took pity on the lame, sick and blind.
Such compassion; no one can compare,
He spread His great mercy, ev’ry where.

This Special Man, was meek and lowly,
His Face was filled with serenity.
Never a cross word did He e’er say,
For He came, His Father, to portray.

Never from Him a vile or vain word,
Serene, gentle, and mild, was our Lord.
The Words He spoke, made you stop and think,
Those Words were for God; a direct link.

This Special Man, with powers untold,
Can grant you access, to streets of gold.
He too, shall judge all the world one day,
So make the right choice; go the right way!

Lions shall eat straw like the ox, in the pasture.
The toddler shall play on the hole of the asp,
In a snake’s den a child his hand can cast.

The Earth shall be full of knowledge of the Lord,
As Almighty God is simply adored.
To the root of Jesse, Gentiles shall seek,
And glorious shall His rest be, to the meek.

People will live in the houses they build,
Eating fruit of their vineyards till they are fill’d.
Ev’ry man shall sit under his own fig tree,
Laziness will be gone, for eternity.

Judging the Earth, our Lord of purity,
He will judge all people with equity.
With righteousness, He shall judge ev’ry one,

Nations shall beat their swords into plowshares,

Vast Realm of Eternity, The . . . June 2009 & Jan.2011 Messages

Consider the life that is to be,
In the vast realm of eternity.
Do you think, of what the future holds?
Will you e’er walk, on that street of gold?

The river - - - clear and pure, did you know?
The water of life, from God’s Throne flows.
In the midst of the street, on each side,
Is the tree of life, that God provides.

No more curse, shall e’er again be found,
Just blessings from the Lord, will abound.
We shall at last see, His precious Face,
And first hand feel, His amazing grace.

There shall never be, any more night,
Just the brilliance, of our Saviour’s Light.
No sun or moon, will this City need,
Glory from God and the Lamb, shall proceed.

No more death, sorrow, crying or pain,
From all these things, we shall abstain.
Nothing that defiles, shall enter in,
Gone will be, all wickedness and sin.

Consider now, the other life to be,
In the vast realm of eternity.
Most will go in, thru’ Hell’s one lone gate,
The Lake of Fire, is the sinner’s fate.

No exit doors, just smoke and darkness,
Here, God’s Glory is gone; He won’t bless.
God’s wondrous Presence, you won’t e’er see,
You’ll be bann’d for e’er, from His mercy.

Agonizing screams, will never cease,
Christ is not there, so you’ll have no peace.
All the wonder of Heav’n, you’ll never see,
Just non-stop suff’ring, eternally.

Only TWO roads, to eternity,
One leads to bliss, the other - - - agony.
Your future in your own hands, you hold,
Eternal suff’ring - - - OR the street of gold.

WHEN I NEED HIM MOST

When I need Him most, He’s close by,
And He won’t ever, my call deny.
There’s not a reason to be afraid,
He’s there to grant me His divine aid.

When my trials are great, He is there,
I just need to go, to Him in prayer.
There to help, in the blink of an eye,
Offering assistance from on High.
He gives rest in days of adversity,
He can remove, our calamity.
A mighty God, so wondrous and true,
There to assist me; and also you.

When trouble surrounds me, on ev’ry side,
I must not forget, in Him to abide.
A moment away, when troubles abound,
God, to His children, is easily found.

I need Him most, so oft’ when I’m down,
He’s always willing; never a frown.
I can’t praise enough, our Creator,
Just He alone, does my soul adore.

YOU WERE THERE

When into the ark Noah did go,
You were there, with blessings to bestow.
You shut the door when the waters came,
For Noah in your eyes, had no blame.

You were there with Elijah, back then,
Showing your approval, O’ so plain.
Elijah trusted your mighty power,
You answered his call at right hour.

Shadrack, Meshack, and Abednego,
Were thrown into the furnace long ago.
They would not bow, to the idol so great,
You were there, the king’s plan to frustrate.

Daniel disobeyed the king’s edict,
“To the lion’s den” was the verdict.
You were there, the lion’s mouths to close,
To all those of faith, your blessing flows.

If you were there for all these, and more,
You’ll be there for us, and blessings pour.
We must trust and believe; keep our faith,
And you’ll be there, until our last breath.

Don’t let me be the old devil’s prey.

Seeing me thru’ e’vn my darkest hour.
