Losing direction
A moving to prayer
We find in Your Presence
Our being here

No sense of purpose
Have hit a snare
A binding in You
Our becoming here

Worries surround me
World filled with fear
Under Your wing
Our security here

Feeling so needy
A calling to share
Blessings bestowing
Our fulfilling here

4 Steps of Gods’ Will

How do I get to heaven
A thought we contemplate
Jesus has the answer
Pass through the narrow gate

Following God’s will
Four steps to employ
Find it and to do it
Keep it and enjoy!

Find it in the scriptures
Wise people and in prayer
In life’s circumstances
The voice of Spirit, hear

It’s not enough to hear it
For we must do it to
Love, and peace and mercy
To His Word to be true

We must be disciplined
In our faith of growing
To be disciplined
Jesus be our knowing

Staying of the course
Of good news to share
Hope and joy to spread
To bring heaven here

(based upon a sermon by Fr. Colin)

A Morning Of

A morning of
A moments peace
A blessings gift
Here to release

Still the air
Soul to reflect
The new born light
My way affect

Birth lens anew
In view of love
Becoming now
My being of

Flow within
The Spirit letting
The way of You
Of attitude setting


Sing to me a morning song
One of something sweet
Wrap in the light of love
A birthing of retreat

Sing to me a melody
One within the Word
Flow Your truth within my heart
Where only love is heard

Sing to me a joyous psalm
One to praise Your name
Bless me in the Spirits gifts
My true purpose claim

Sing to me your own song
All throughout this day
Proclaiming of the love of God
Through gifts within the way


A time of great stress
Now has passed by
Let us exhale
With a collective sigh

A turn of reflection
Of our learning be
Through Your perspective
What did we see

A Fatherly love
One of the sharing
Of tender protection
Hand that is caring

Of no need to worry
For You’re in control
Let this gratefulness dwell
Deep in our soul

Carry this lesson
Ahead in the way
And when I forget
A returning to pray

Love Here in Morning

I love here in morning
Of Presence to be
Thought of the turning
That loves finding me

A pasture of light
On hillside of green
Into fields’ drifting
Of beauty pristine

Peace is prevailing
A movement occurs
In binding beyond
As the Spirit stirs

Soul of aligning
In One we belong
A fragrance of gifting
To carry along

Morning Commune

Still the morn softly
Awaken this day
Let all join as one
Of being to pray

Cast the light gently
Outpouring glow
Covering all
Love here to know

Sing a psalm slowly
The Spirit to stir
Human and divine
The line here to blur

Gentle of touching
Soul to attune
A day of beginning
With You to commune


Times of our resting
When creation surrounds
Our God of supplying
Comforting sounds

In blessings reflection
Nighttime is falling
Stars cast their glow
As peepers are calling

Still by the water
Comforting waves
Caressing the deep
A sound our soul craves

Ascending unto
A mountain of lifting
Beauty of view
In silence the gifting

Being within
In drawing of air
Spirit leads to
One of our prayer
