Here to Horizon

A view from the hilltop
Of pause captures me
A moment of stilling
Of vision to see

From here to horizon
The soul drifts away
Simply by gazing
Of being to pray

One of perspective
Becoming aware
Entranced in the present
To be more fully here

A practice of focus
Of heaven above
When gazing on Him
We are filled with His love

Everything is Here

Stopped into a Church
With offer of a prayer
Spirit spoke the Word
Everything is here

Wisdom in the scriptures
One of Gods’ own view
A story beyond time
Including me and you

Fulfillment of our needs
Hope and our desire
Blessed in perfect love
With calling of the higher

From suffering to healing
Sin to great mercy
Death into new life
Now to eternity

Treasures of divine
Gifts beyond compare
Peace and love and joy
So much here to share

Be Here Now

The past is behind us
To let go, allow
To God give the future
To be grateful now

Each soul of encounter
Of blessing, endow
A binding of sharing
To be present now

Each moment receiving
To fully allow
His treasure embracing
To be loved now

This moments’ a gift
That God does endow
A practice of living
To be here now

That Brought Us to Here

A pause of reflection
Of this day we share
Of all of the moments
That brought us to here

For each of the souls
Who love us so dear
Their acts of pure love
That brought us to here

For those gone before us
Of their presence aware
Of their sacrifice
That brought us to here

So many blessings
Upon us God bares
Each step of binding
That brought us to here

So many graces
Of answer to prayer
Of which we’re so thankful
That brought us to here

Our hearts are so grateful
Eyes fill with tears
For our God so gracious
That brought us to here

On this blessed day
In love, You appear
Oh Lord, it is You
That brought us to here

For when we see heaven
May this thought be clear
The step of our journey
Brought us to here

Blessing Here

In the sunrise
The light appears
There’s a world
Of blessing here

Drawing deep
Of the fresh air
There’s a life
Of blessing here

Blessed souls
Of way to share
There’s a bond
Of blessing here

Gifts of grace
Within our prayer
Beyond this world
Of blessing here

Found Right Here

I must do something
I must go somewhere
With a restless heart
Searching everywhere

Lost within the doing
Needing to prepare
Thoughts consumed with worry
Future holding fear

An old man sat beside me
Great wisdom he did share
Everything you need
Can be found right here

That God is of the present
Your soul to be aware
Know His perfect love
In a simple prayer

So be of the moment
With God of Presence here
With love to do something
And free to go somewhere

Greater in Here

Walls can’t contain You
Of this I’m aware
But praying in Church
It’s greater in here

So brilliant the sunrise
The light shining clear
But through the stained glass
It’s greater in here

I see that’s it’s true
That You are everywhere
But I feel that Your Presence
It’s greater in here

You can’t love us more
Cherished so dear
But somehow, I feel
It’s greater in here

Throughout of day
A practice of prayer
Your deepness of dwelling
It’s greater in here

Our life that is blessed
With gifts that You share
But finding Your joy
It’s greatest in here

Being of Here

A beautiful moment
Of being right here
When dwelling within
Your Presence aware

No sight to see
Nothing to hear
No past or future
Just being of here

One of the letting
The Spirit of prayer
Of binding divine
Our being of here

To be of the moments
Of being right here
Blessed be the soul
Of being to share

Here I Am

One to be with God
Of Presence be aware
A prayer of, “Here I Am”
Right now, and right here

To God of the “I AM”
An offering to share
To say here, I AM
Surrender to Him here

And Gods says “Here, I AM”
His gift of Presence, be
A binding beautiful
His Spirit dwells in me

And He gives even more
A blessing of beauty
As God says, “Here, I AM”
When His loves shared through me

When I’m swamped and busy
A friend to me appears
With word of “here I am”
Let me find you there

More Here

I want to be more here
Here, because I know
That you, my God, are here
Let this knowledge flow

I know that you love me
And all I need is here
Therefore, here I will sit
A grateful heart to share

To thank you, faithful God
With I AM as Your name
To thank you for your Son
To be with us, we claim

Thank you for the Spirit
So deeply flowing through
Though sometimes I don’t feel it
I know it to be true

Just as I am breathing
A feeling that’s sublime
And so, I know You’re with me
Though, don’t feel it all the time
