Song In The Heart

Pausing in this new day
Before it even starts
Searching for the song
Arising from the heart

In a quiet moment
With our God to share
In the depth of soul
And bringing it to prayer

Be it joy or sorrow
Loneliness or fear
Acknowledging the feeling
And being with Him here

Binding in the light
Let Him dwell within
Listen for the new song
Let it now begin

Carrying the tune
With Spirit of the way
Knowing that He singing
With us here this day

Notre Dame

This building great
A blessed space
To contemplate

As arches rise
Unto above
No limit of
Your precious love

Through filtered light
Of windows rose
Your beauty shines
On each soul choose

Through will of man
Each stone is laid
Through grace of God
His Church is made

Remnants of Prayer

Soul is left changed
In remnants of prayer
Proof of encounter
Of meeting You here

Peace is the fragrance
That dwells in the air
Tender the moment
Of time that we shared

Holy the light
Of the afterglow
Fruits of the Spirit
That You have bestowed

May the fire still linger
Throughout all the day
In fading to embers
Again, let us pray

A Whisper of Violet

A whisper of violet
Is blessed from the night
A gift to the morning
Seen bound in the light

A message of wisdom
For reflective souls here
Of God’s providence
Speaking so clear

Of yesterday’s worries
And fear of unknown
Today is dispelled
The way of God shown

As child beloved
The Lord by our side
Never forsaken
In our soul, faith reside

The Souls’ Light

The day is birthed
In innocence light
The source of all
Lays down, contrite

As day moves on
Intensity rises
Darkness to cease
Dispelling it guises

In dusk descending
A calm slowing down
A breeze of forgiveness
As wisdom surrounds

In darkness of light
On waves set a glimmer
Contemplation at rest
As the moonlight shimmers

Perhaps here a vision
As souls light shines through
The way we reflect
The light blessed from You

Soul Moves With Spirit

We mumble a prayer
Don’t know where to start
Intent that’s sincere
Flows from the heart

We scribble some words
That we all yearn for
Of Presences’ desire
To know you more

We lift a hand
Unselfish the deed
Little act offered
To Your will concede

Soul moves with Spirit
As loves ripple flows
You magnify
More than we’ll know
