Psalm 86

Lord you are forgiving
All good through and through
Abounding in Your love
To all who call to You

Hear my prayer oh Lord
My cry for mercy
In distress I call
Because You answer me

Teach me Your ways, oh Lord
Your faithfulness, proclaim
With undivided heart
Trusting in Your name

I praise You, Lord my God
Heart be magnified
Forever let me say
Your name be glorified

For Your love is great
Steadfast love for me
My soul you’ve delivered
In Your eternity

Psalm 139

You formed my inmost being
Knit in my mother’s womb
Wonderfully am made
One of Your heirloom

Precious Your designs
To You let my praise flow
Wonderful are Your works
My very self you know

My bones are not hidden
From You Oh Lord my birth
Being made in secret
From the depths of earth

Your book all written down
Your eyes saw unformed me
All my days were shaped
Before one came to be

Ephesians Prologue

In Him we were chosen
With purpose to fulfill
All in one accord
Of intention of His will

That we might exist
For the praise of His glory
We who hoped in Christ
The sharing of His story

Who’ve heard the Word of truth
The gospel of salvation
Believed in Him were sealed
With Spirit’s proclamation

Which is the first installment
Our inheritance to be
Redeemed as God’s possession
To praise of His glory

Colossians 3

Since you have been raised
Up with Christ to be
Look to things above
Where Christ is sitting, see

Let thoughts be above
Not of the earth below
Know the life you have
Hidden in Christ we know

When Christ is revealed
And He is your life too
Revealed in His glory
Faith of message true

Put on a new self
Progress unto the greater
The more it is revealed
In image of Creator

Let God Hit Them

There is a saying
Some bible groups embrace
“You need to duck, to let
God hit them in the face”

I do understand
What they try to say
Be not overbearing
But other thoughts convey

One of sweet revenge
You’re not in the wrong
But are those the words
Of our God, we belong?

Find it in scripture
Word of only love
One of patient kindness
To guide our way above

So let go in love
Word to contemplate
Look to Corinthians
In verses 4 through 8

Two Objects Together

A beautiful sight
For the soul to see
Two objects together
Of simplicity

An altar of wood
A passion of love
A bible at rest
Opened above

Man and divine
Two sides in finding
Here now connected
Jesus in binding

The Gospel is spoken
That speaks of the One
Loves ultimate price
Gift of Gods Son

Treasure to cherish
One of the Word
Let Spirit indwell
Its’ truth to be heard
