O Lord, our Father

Only You can change this earth

From negative to positive

Let us construct not destruct

Advance not retreat

Back and forth and round about

You are our axis

Nothing stands still

This world whirls around your wlll

Open our eyes to realise

We are nothing without You

You are the sun, the moon, the stars

You are creation, and all is in motion

To bring us back to You

Perfection

Post No. 902

Perfection

.

We cannot conceive,

Are unable to perceive,

His perfection…

As His spirit fills our souls

And His inspiration fuels our goals,

We are humbled before Him ~

Our King;

Father of the universe,

The revelation of whose love

Holds us in awe, spell-bound,

Wanting nothing more

Than to praise and adore

Our Lord.

The Raw Heart of Africa

Post No. 886

The Raw Heart of Africa

.

Civilisation peels back the skin

Of sophistication ~

No more than a veneer

Layered very thin ~

Over Africa’s raw heart.

I bleed to see how

It was used and abused

Bribed over generations

Corrupted, outsmarted

By men who stole its wealth.

And, infected now itself,

It cannot reverse time

But openly try to recover,

Unwrap what was papered over.

Sunshine in the Valley

Sunshine in the Valley

.

Let the sun shine in the valley

Chase the shadows far far away

It breaks my heart to see you suffer

It breaks my heart to see your pain

.

If i could turn the clocks around

And let the cogs themselves unwind

Return once more to yesteryear

Firmly anchored ‘gainst the wind

.

Father God there’s only You

Shielding us from desolation

Preserving us from devastation

With you on our side we must abide

Army of the Lord

Post No. 862

Army of the Lord

.

Mine eyes have seen the glory 
of the coming of the lord,
He is trampling out the vintage
where the grapes of wrath are stored,
He hath loosed the fateful lightning
of His terrible swift sword,
His truth is marching on

Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on

Is our life on earth a proving ground

For the fight between good and evil

We cannot doubt that God will win

Because all else depends on Him:

He is the Creator of the universe.

But is mankind ready, willing and able

To take a stand, seemingly against all odds,

To join His army and defeat the evil

Dwelling and swelling in its task

To take control of mankind’s heart.

Miracles

.

Our father,

maker, creator, designer and inventor

of gigantic mountains, valleys,

wastelands and seas

from the macro to the micro

and everything between

you possess the marvels and miracles

to do what e’er you please

i hear your voice calling me

across rugged mountain ranges

across the stormy sea

over the desert sands of time

through the never-ending vastness of space

calling, calling to the human race

i have countless questions to ask when at last we meet

is it only on a whim that you cause the earth to quake

is it simply on an impulse that the world begins to shake

and what is it that enables you to choose

which peoples are to win and which to lose

difficult to answer for someone such as me

but you o lord are able to see

right inside the human heart

and take it all apart
