Dawning of Calling

A dawning of calling, in silence its song
Respond with our binding, in prayer join along

Stirring within, let the soul hear it
A movement this day, the call of the Spirit

Come now the chosen, the ones of the light
A call to arms, of purpose so bright

An offer before us, to share now our gift
The bringing of heaven, of this world to lift

Above is our view, display of beauty
Colors of blending, of miracles, see

Joy of arising, to know in our soul
In building His kingdom, we each share a role

Sunrise is our flag, raised for us all
With charge of the Spirit and love is our call

New Passion

To be fully alive
A question to fashion
Of great importance
What is our passion?

Drives our decisions
For all to see
Consumer of time
Leaves our legacy

From where does it come?
Seen on TV?
Making me cool
Or our family

Let’s reconsider
Appealing of higher
Let us pray for
A seed of desire

Found in the binding
A purpose fulfilling
The Passion of Christ
Let our soul be willing

Days Light

Light of the dawning
So gently it lay
Speaks all is anew
A drawing to pray

Bright is the shining
Light of mid-day
Of clarity’s vision
Guiding the way

As sun is setting
With gift to relay
A blessing of mercy
Love it conveys

Store in the soul
Your light here to stay
In darkness of night
May our faith never sway

Desires

Filled with desires
The same, all are we
One of the soul
Heart, mind and body

To nourish the belly
Of hunger inside
With food and water
The earth does provide

Relationship needing
Spouse of the finding
Desire of heart
Of intimate binding

Still a great longing
Our soul does pursue
One of beyond
All creation points to

Found in our prayer
Our Savior we meet
Blessed by His grace
Our desire complete

Let Me Let

Let me let this moment be
A prayer within of such beauty

Let me let the Spirit be
A resting place of three in me

Let me let, surrender be
Through Your grace, the soul be free

Let me let Your love be
A conduit of unity

Let me let Your will be
My life to live sacrificially

Carry Your Spirit

Bless me Your Spirit
To enter into
With gifts overflowing
By the grace of You

Bless me a dwelling
Of binding into
To carry the Spirit
All the day through

A purpose of gifting
Of light to release
Bursting with joy
A fragrance of peace

Humble of Spirit
To listen and serve
Compassion abundant
As the underserved

A generous heart
If love to outpour
Souls of one voice
It’s You, we adore

What Does the Soul Need?

What does the soul need
To begin each day
Beauty, silence, stillness
Ingredients to pray

Light of inspiration
Air that’s fresh and clean
Moving of the colors
Spirit which to glean

A setting full of wonder
A palette full of peace
Embrace of love extends
For souls will to release

A drawing of pause
To contemplate
Treasures of heaven
Here now awaits

God of gracious patience
Always pursuing you
If today You pass Him
He seek tomorrow too

Do the Same

It’s a fact
We know it’s true
God loves me
And God loves you

Relentlessly
He does pursue
Our souls dear
With love so true

For He loves all
No judgment seen
Sinner or saint
Nice or mean

My prayer today
Of heart proclaim
Oh Lord, help me
Please do the same

Dawnings’ Gray

Slow the dawning
From the night
Horizons glow
Of black and white

Soul is seeking
Colors, employ
The empty scene
Devoid of joy

Still a prayer
Spirit appeal
Inspiration
To reveal

Let roots of faith
Grow deep this day
In deserts rain
Through shades of gray
