Of Broken Heart – Psalm 34:17-18

Of Broken Heart – Psalm 34:17-18

The cry of tears
Falling in the night
Echo high in heaven
For He hears the cry
Of the broken hearts
That cry out beneath the stars
And He delivers
Their soul to the light
To end the cry of the tears
No more troubles
Or painful tears
No longer of broken heart

No Need For Days – Isaiah 60:19-20

No Need For Days – Isaiah 60:19-20

And if the sun shines no more
Then I’ll have no need for days
And if the moon fails to shine
I’ll no longer fear the night
For the everlasting light
Of the Lord our God’s love
Will be the way and the life
Eclipsing the sun and the moon
And the starts of the night
So days will have no meaning
Just the glory of God
Beneath which there is life
Surrounded by everlasting light

Isaiah 60:19-20

Lay Down All Our Arms – Psalm 20:7

Lay Down All Our Arms – Psalm 20:7

Let go the sticks and stones
Don’t dream of chariots and horses
No need for guns and bombs
Let love be the one to conquer
Let us trust in our God
To see our way to peace
To see our way to love all this earth
So lay down all our arms
And let love be our only weapon

Twisting Clay – Jeremiah 18:4

Twisting Clay – Jeremiah 18:4

Are we just spoilt clay
Twisting in the potter’s hands
The hands of the One who makes us
To be the best pot we can
Yet we twist ourselves out of shape
Twisting between His fingers
Yet ever He continues to mould us
To form a yet better pot
One far better than before
Is it time we stopped twisting
Let His hands form our soul
To be the post which He desires
To serve Him the best we can

Jeremiah 18:4

I Who Have Stumbled – Psalm 37:23-24

I Who Have Stumbled – Psalm 37:23-24

I who have stumbled
Though never fallen
Caught by His arms
Upheld by His hands
By He who makes my way
Making firm my steps
His love for me
Everlasting
And in my faithfulness
He delights
I may still stumble
Yet I am ever safe
As I know I’ll never fall

The Way, The Word, The Love – Psalm 18:30

Our perfect God
Flawless to the end
A love beyond eternity
Ever perfect ways
He who shields the broken
Those who seek refuge
The fallen and the strong
He welcomes everyone
His word is our meaning
His love our strength and peace
The way
The word
The love
Our perfect God

I Look Back – Lamentations 3:19-22

I Look Back – Lamentations 3:19-22

Walked blindly
In a darker world
Addiction taken
The life I owned
Steeling the hope
And the light in these bones
In shadows shivering
As the fears fell
No smile
No laughter
Under addiction’s spell
Then the voice spoke
Just before the light came
To throw wide the shadows
To release all the pain
No longer down cast
The light consumed the soul
And now when darkness visits
When it fights for my heart
I look back to the moment
When the voice set me free
I may still see shadows
But His love brings me hope
With Him never consumed
When I have His unending love
