One Simple

One simple morning
Of one simple day
Of one simple lifetime
Blesses the way

Of the sights and sounds
And feeling within
The senses are full
Here, soak it all in

Gift of receiving
Grace moving here
One simple stirring
Of divinity, share

One simple action
Of being to know
One act of love
Let the ripples now flow

A Simple Request

A simple request
Of humility
To ask of a friend
Will you pray for me?

A need or desire
To our God we adore
But in the request
We find so much more

A sharing of faith
Of one common love
A binding of souls
With our Lord above

On the grace of our Lord
We each we do depend
We’ll rejoice together
In the answer He sends

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

Simple Lessons

In this crazy world
Let us return this day
When we were a child
Things we learned to say

When we cross the street
Or decision to appraise
Always to remember
Us, to look both ways

These simple courtesies
Always keep in mind
Saying please and thank you
To be humble and kind

Think of the other first
Let Jesus voice speak through
Loving one another
Just as I’ve loved you

A Simple Action

Such a simple action
To take a moments prayer
Perhaps to change the world
At least my outlook here

One of the receiving
Blessings of God’s gifts
Peace and love instilling
Of our soul to lift

All brothers and sisters
Of new lens to see
That everything is grace
One body we be

One thought of kindness
One offer to care
One act of forgiveness
One binding to share

One drop of love
A ripple, provide
Of a rising wave
Can turn the tide

The Simplest Prayer

An offer of thought
Of the simplest prayer
One you can pray
Anytime, anywhere

Offered each moment
A gift that He shares
One of His Presence
He is fully here

He is “I Am”
A beautiful name
An offer of being
Right now, we can claim

Nothing prepared
No great program
Just three simple words
To offer, “Here I am”

Sing a Simple

Song a simple song of prayer
One of joy for God is here

In this moment here to be
For I love Him and He loves me

In stilling soul, distractions flow
Smile now and let them go

A practice now, of binding deep
Our quiet place in soul to keep

Throughout this day, return to prayer
Of flowing grace, Your love to share

Simple Lessons

In this crazy world
Let us return this day
When we were a child
Things we learned to say

When we cross the street
Or decision to appraise
Walking hand in hand
and to look both ways

These simple courtesies
Always keep in mind
Saying please and thank you
To be humble and kind

Think of the other first
Let Jesus’ voice speak through
Loving one another
Just as I’ve loved you

A Simple Prayer

Just a simple prayer
No words of the needing
Find a silence space
With a will, conceding

Acknowledge here His Presence
Jesus of believing
Letting all else go
And be of the receiving

Being His beloved
Cherished and adored
Soaking in the heart
His perfect love, outpoured

Know it in the soul
This truth of treasure true
A transforming love
Will change Your whole life’s view

A Simple Morning

A simple morning
Sweet the bird sings
A soft gentle rain
Of blessing it brings

Colors of autumn
A masterpiece
Embrace of surrounding
In gifting of peace

Warm the light filters
In love that it flows
A calling of stillness
That the soul knows

A prayer to fall into
A knowing of grace
For I see You
All over the place
