Sing a Simple Song

Sing a simple song of sorrow
One of human hearts despair

Seek a Savior for our saving
From our worries and our fear

Sing a simple song of silence
One of empty dwelling here

Heal this humble heart of hurting
From cross of which we bear

Sing a song of souls surrender
To our God appealing here

Soft the scent of Spirit swirling
Tune the soul, senses aware

Open wide the door of promise
Gift of heavens treasure share

See the light of love outpouring
Find the Lord awaiting here

Open arms of grace surrounding
Fall into His mercy here

Sing a song of soul rejoicing
Joy arising in the air

Spirit of the way igniting
Light of God shines everywhere

Sing a song soul rejoicing
The good news of love to share

Is Grace

Sunday Autumn morning
With sunlight on our face
Warm the touching light
But all we feel is grace

A gaze into horizon
So beautiful this place
Colors overflowing
But all we is see is grace

So wonderful the song
That fills this empty space
Creation sings its praise
But all we hear is grace

To receive Your love
Wrapped in soft embrace
Mercy overflowing
And all we know is grace

A lesson here of blessing
So many things we chase
But all we really need
Is Your gift of grace


Let us take a moment
To contemplate
What are qualities
We want to cultivate?

Cultivate friendship
With our Lord above
With a heart of desire
Is our source of love

Cultivate compassion
With a heart to care
To reach and touch
Or offer of prayer

Cultivate kindness
With act, thought and deed
With a generous heart
To all those in need

Cultivate gratitude
Of thankful heart
Let humility shine
With joy to impart

From our intentions
Our true character shows
For what we cultivate
Is the way our heart grows

Not Thankful, Grateful

We are not thankful
For a country divided
But we are grateful
In our one God united

We are not thankful
For disease that we fear
But for unfailing love
Found in this moment here

We are not thankful
That our loved one died
But for the comfort
Of the Lord by our side

Not thankful for a job lost
So difficult to cope
But grateful for our Savior
For He is our true hope

Not thankful for pain
For the burdens we bear
But our Lord through his cross
In our suffering, share

We are not thankful
For the pain this life brings
But for our faith
To its promise, we cling

Not thankful for all
But if we live gratefully
The fruit will be joy
Into eternity

Like Never Before

A day of Thanksgiving
Like never before
With loved ones not gathered
Some here, no more

For those without work
Through struggles, endure
Those in great pain
Like never before

Great is our worry
Our hope to restore
The future uncertain
Like never before

We know the answer
Hold faith at the core
So, let us pray now
Like never before

For still, we give thanks
To the One with the cure
For we need Him now
Like never before

What Do You Want?

Let us ask a question
Of importancy
Pondering the answer
What does God, want with me?

That we are His beloved
Cherished through and through
To be within Him forever
That His love is true

With each of us a calling
To bond with Him in prayer
To proclaim His message
Of His love to share

To fully be ourselves
A life to live Holy
Blessing of our giftings
Who He made us to be

To rest within His love
Of known security
Beings of one body
To live it joyfully

The kingdom now is here
May His will be done
Bound within His love
That we all be as One

One Breath of Gift

Just for one moment
Not of an act, great
A practice of focus
To contemplate

One breath of breathing
Received as a gift
An offer returned
Of gratefulness lift

A realization
Of what our God gives
Fully dependent on
Our existence to live

Born out of love
Within His embrace
For everything’s blessed
And everything’s grace

Windows of Light

Oh. God of unseen
So grateful to be
The windows of light
That You bless to me

One of our treasure
That we hold dear
Our binding together
Through the gift of prayer

In wonder of nature
The souls’ blessed to see
From flower to sky
Infinite beauty

The souls of our way
Unique colors to shine
Your facets of love
Of touching divine

Deeper and Higher

We all need more time
Thus, we live life fast
There is another way
To make this moment last

Pausing now to see
In gratefulness to dwell
An opportunity
To live this moment well

Slowing the momentum
Growing the soul deep
Cherishing through senses
To let this moment seep

A view of the higher
Lifting soul above
Receiving of the blessing
Know in this moment, love

To time beyond the mortal
With our God to be
To live within this moment
Of eternity

Revelation 3:20

I will eat with you
And you will eat with me
A banquet of such treasure
Words of such beauty

I will eat with you
And you will eat with me
Bread that has been broken
We share in His body

I will eat with you
And you will eat with me
A body shared together
One of community

I will eat with you
And you will eat with me
One of transformation
Of heaven now to be

I will eat with you
And you will eat with me
Binding in One love
For all eternity
