Expectation in You

On the road we’re walking
Your joy within our path
Perhaps we didn’t see it
Reflections in the aftermath

Let this day be different
Expectation in our heart
To receive your gifts of blessing
To soul that You impart

We wait in expectation
To glimpse Your way of light
Your touch of grace unique
Gift of hearts delight

It may come in decision
Uncomfortable may be
In a step of faith
Your glory we will see

Perhaps in dawning glory
Through beauty that You shine
Cherishing the moment
Of man and God divine

It may come through a soul
Unnoticed from before
In pause, a time to open
Your kingdoms exposed door

Excited for this journey
To see You in new ways
A grateful heart is waiting
Receiving You this day

Message of the View

A blessing sent to greet us
In an autumns morning chill
A river painted glorious
In sunrise colors spill

Remnants of the summer
Cling in branches few
A barrenness of beauty
Let’s Your light shine through

A winter’s breeze is blowing
A desert cry is heard
Forest floor of rust
A glimpse of passing bird

They gather now in branches
In serenading song
A sweet rejoicing ballad
Of which the heart is fond

Drawing soul in vision
To path of light of You
A warming love in knowing
In message of the view

Soul Entrusted

Stilling soul in moment
To dwell within Your light
Embrace of love consuming
Lifted up so bright

A grace blessed in our sharing
I give my soul to You
Of now within forever
Your love is known so true

When birth was graced to me
A spark of light instilled
You loved me into being
Blessed with a free will

My will surrender to You
Souls light bind to You now
In time of souls restoring
A practice to endow

For when earths path has ended
A choice before Your door
We’ll smile both together
As we’ve done this all before

Song Eternal

Through distractions of the daily
Whispered past my fears
Song eternal singing
Drawing my soul near

Song of love sustaining
My soul which you uphold
External voice of drawing
Forever in Your fold

Rest with ear of soul
Surrender to Your song
Bind with brother dear
In You, we all belong

Saints of heavens grace
Rejoice with heart of glee
Angels praise so sweet
All praying now through me

Rise Spirit of the light
Shining through the dark
Step out in ways of love
With Jesus we embark

To sing your song of love
The need for which souls long
Let us all join in
With Your eternal song

Zaccheus

Dear Zaccheus of the sycamore tree
Dwelling in branches of light
Pray for me now, let Spirit descend
In sharing Gods deepest insight

Let passion arise, driving my soul
To see God in a new way today
Rising above the worlds earthly view
Setting my spirit ablaze

He called you by name, picked you from the crowd
For me I pray He’ll do the same
Our powerful God, He looks to us all
With love calling us each by our name

Come to me now, let me dwell in your house
Let me dine the table with you
Sharing the meal filling your soul
Transformed, you’ll know what to do

Renouncing your sin, you’ll do what is right
Repaying each one what is due
You have a new path, with me by your side
Arise, your purpose is new

Touched by the word, love now is the prize
Sharing and shining my light
In kingdom above, drawn into the one
Aligned, let your Spirit shine bright!

Knowing I Belong

In this moment
In this place
A grace is blessed within
My God is here and He awaits
Will I let Him in?

He speaks to me
In wisdom thoughts
They flow right to my soul
I cherish them and hold them close
They fill an empty hole

He sits and waits with open ear
For feelings deep and true
Accepting me with open arms
True comfort through and through

I let go and fall within
Peace eternal dwells
Transformation in His light
My soul in His love swells

Awakened eyes with vision new
With Spirit singing strong
Sent forth in purpose In God’s kingdom
Knowing I belong

All Is Ready

Come now all is ready
The banquet is prepared
A table set before us
Of treasures to be shared

Desire to be with you
To join within a feast
To celebrate this moment
All burdens be released

My joy is to be with you
In You I do rejoice
Bless me with your being
Share your inner voice

Let us laugh together
Share your deepest fear
Know that I adore you
Wipe away Your tears

You are my beloved
Know my love is true
One of the eternal
I give my all to you

Dance of the Divine

Let us dance a dance
Rejoicing in our prayer
Embraced in the twirling
Spirit everywhere

Hand in hand in binding
Human and divine
Endorphins overflowing
Grace of God is mine

Soul rejoices gladly
In Your love so bright
Heart to heart together
Being our delight

Gaze is fixed in love
Spirit binding strong
Adored is the beloved
In oneness we belong

Let fragrance of this song
Flow from our presence wide
Love unbound in sharing
Jesus by our side
