THE SURRENDER

February 16, 2010 at 8:40 am (Poems)

“My child,
I have prepared a place
for you to go,
and there you will preach My Word:
Power I will give you,
Your needs I will provide,
I shall be with you
even unto the ends of the world.”

Holy One,
before You I bow,
do forgive and cleanse Your vessel;
Make me holy to do Your will,
let only pure thoughts
& feelings in me dwell.

Sovereign King,
to You I plead,
never let me leave Your side,
Take my will
and command my heart
To ever with Your decrees abide.

Almighty God,
of You I beg
for daily strength,
Because without You
I can do nothing,
in all of life’s battles
too easily i would faint.

Loving Father,
hear my cry,
comfort me
when my soul is downcast;
Keep me resting upon Your will,
teach me Your heart to trust.

Gracious Lord,
I ask of You
all that for me
You deem best;
Through Your grace
will I glorify You
whether I be in bliss
or amid a test.

Send me
whom You have called:
I now surrender
for You own and love me!
Take my life
and my all-
I am ready and joyful
to go and suffer
for Your glory!

THE MAN I DO NOT DESERVE

February 16, 2010 at 8:33 am (Poems)

Would you smile at me
If our eyes did meet?
Would you look my way
If you saw me in a street?

Would you utter my name
If someone asked ’bout me?
Would you give me time
If you’re too busy or just free?

Would you reach for my hand
If you saw me falling?
Would your tears flow too
If you heard that I was crying?

Would you tell silly jokes
If I needed some cheer?
Would you come running
If I wanted you to be here?

Would you call and trust me
If you had to bare things?
Would your cheeks turn red
If I told you ’bout my feelings?

Would you let me love you
If you knew you’re my love?
Would you give your heart
If it’s just all I want to have?

I know all the answers
To all these dumb questions,
I would be a fool
Not to grasp and take your actions..

I know I don’t deserve
A man as fine as you,
I’m not a part of
All the things you say and do.

Senseless to let you know
That you’ve conquered my heart,
But though I’m hurting,
To leave off this love is not right.

So just in my silence,
Where no one can observe,
I am loving you–
You, the man I do not deserve.

HIS LOVE FOR ME

February 16, 2010 at 8:01 am (Poems)

He had mercy for my sinful soul;
His heart throbbed for me ’till His last breath;
And I tremble at this truth I know:
It’s His love for me that caused His death.

It’s His precious blood that washed me clean,
And I’m counted righteous for ever!
I can come before the Holy King
Who receives my praise and hears my pray’r.

His love for me is so wonderful–
It’s the deepest that I’ve ever known!
Filling my heart and wooing my soul
Each day and ’till I’m finally home.

EVERLASTING JOY

February 16, 2010 at 7:59 am (Poems)

I long for my home
Where close to Jesus I’ll always be,
The only place where everlasting joy
I shall obtain.
There the mansions,
streets of gold and crowns for us await;
The wondrous shore
Where there is no hunger, crying or pain!

On that land shall I meet
All that the LORD loved and redeemed:
We’ll be shaking each others’ hands
And how joyfully sing–
Our spirits shall eternally be satisfied
As we behold the glory
Of our Savior and King!

Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.
-Isaiah 51:11 (KJV)
