GOD revealed

Post No. 900

GOD revealed

.

The decision was always His to make

The steps were ever His to take

And Jesus Christ was born of man

God revealed in His own plan

In flesh and blood he could relate

He gave His all for love of us

Suffering torment on the cross

He was no figment to still man’s need

Of a saving grace or creed

But the unadorned and newborn babe

Come to earth to conquer death

Hail to Thee O King of kings

All hail to Thee O Lord of lords

Our glorious God is now revealed

Search for Shangri-La

Search for Shangri-La

.

In vain we seek our Shangri-La

In covert hideaways,

Darkest corners,

Shaded, sweet smelling arbours,

Peaceful harbours…

.

There is no shelter from confronting storms,

Where the wind howls and the world quakes;

There is no haven safe enough,

There is nought but faith on which to clutch

As we pray for those we love…

Mercy

Edited

O God, King of all kings,

King of all things under the sun

Since life begun,

You mould me like clay

Of which I am made,

But what have I done ~

I am but a tool for Your use,

A nail in Your cross,

The wood for Your saw,

And I always fall short.

Perfection is Yours for the taking,

Yours for the making.

I fail to preach what You teach,

Help my soul to reach,

To touch the hem of Your cloak

To provoke Your healing hands.

Grace

.

I lost myself in the ways of the world,

I stumbled and fell in the mire,

But the Lord saw me fall

And He reached out his hand,

Said, I understand,

It is easy for you to do,

Just keep your eyes on the cross

At the top of the hill

Where the road runs straight and true,

If you falter and fall, you must pick yourself up,

If you stray on the way, call on Me

For I will be there – My love will set you free.

Your Light

.

a bright light shines through the darkness

warms my heart and cossets my soul

i feel you here lord, i feel you here god

your spirit calms me and keeps me whole

my faith grows stronger with each passing day

i will hold on forever through the rain and the storm

i will never let go and will come to no harm

Evensong

.

The skirt of evening falls

gently enfolding hills and dales

in purple haze; these are the days

where twilight wraps branches as they bow

and the flames of the setting sun

dive headfirst into the golden meadow.

The morrow waits just o’er the hill

with bated breath, beyond the heath,

and God keeps watch both day and night

to see His will be done.

Praise

.

I heard Him call my name
And I joined in while the
Whole world sang his praise
From the east to the west
From the north to the south
In the earth and sky and sea
Glory, glory hallelujah
Glory, glory hallelujah
Blessed be He who rules

.

Open your eyes and see
Open your ears and hear
Open your heart and feel
His love for us is real

Faith

.

…can move mountains,

Or so they say…

But the faith that God

Wants us to have

Is as pure as spring water,

Fountains, clean and clear

As a child’s view,

Without conditions, restrictions,

And no complications,

But the more we struggle to understand,

The harder we try to read God’s mind,

The further we stray from His way.
