Still Broken – A Prayer

Still Broken – A Prayer (Psalm 55:22)

Where is my voice
My cries silent inside
Despite what I show
Brave the external
Still fragile inside
It can be a lonely road
That I walk in my silence
It hurts still deep
Yet I show a smile
So this is my cry
This is my prayer
Still broken
But I keep holding on
And this I still know
You will never let go

Psalm 55:22

Psalm 55:22

Darkness Defeated

Darkness Defeated (Ephesians 5:8-10)

I saw you there
In Your darkness
Uncomfortable cries
From where you thought
No one else could go

I called to you
I broke wide the dark
Flooding your world with light
This was my gift
I ask nothing in return
My child of the light

You stumble no more
Not with me here
I’ll walk with you
Wherever you go
I’ll carry you
When the road becomes hard

Your darkness is defeated
Now I’m by your side

Ephesians 5:8-10

Ephesians 5:8-10

Glorious Light

Glorious Light (Psalm 56:13)

I’ve walked there
Deepest of the dark
I’ve fallen there
Where the good do not tread
Yet He entered
The ugly corner of my world
Where good light never shone
Not until He came
He turned me towards the light
And delivered me to it’s glory
No longer dead in my shadow
Or stumbling in the deep
No I walk
Oh, do I walk
In His glorious light

Psalm 56:13

Psalm 56:13

Look Deep Within

Look Deep Within

Here I steer this boat
Upon rising waves
This storm builds
It beats down upon the beams
They creak under the pressure
And I creak too
I can’t take this storm
How much longer can I hold on
Before this boat falls below the waves

But why?
Why don’t I remember
To look deep within
Because there deep below
Lies the Son in His peace
Why can’t I just go below
To sit down besides
And hold the hand of the Saviour
Because this I know
The Father would never let this storm
Take me if I hold on to the Son of Man

Works

Works (Ephesians 6:7)

Who do I serve?
Who is my master?
How do I work?
As each day passes
My hands day by day
What do they create?
Do they build for this world
Or just massage my soul?
In everything I do
Do I do it for Him?
Or my own glory
To ease a wounded soul?
He gave me my life
In His word from that day
So now it’s my time
To put right my works
In each day I face
I’ll work for my Lord
To light up His glory
In the face of this world

Ephesians 6:7

Of A Different Kind

Of A Different Kind (Psalm 63:7-8)

Deep in shadows
Now of a different kind
Shadow of Your wings
Now where I lay
Deep in Your comfort
My heart finds it’s beat
Since that day You set me free
So here I cling
I hold on tight
To Your mighty right hand
That holds me and keeps me
To the life You have planned

Psalm 63:7-8

Psalm 63:7-8

Forevermore

Forevermore (Jude 1:24-25)

Where would I be now
If He hadn’t picked me up
Would I walk this earth
Without that moment in my life
That day, that night
That morning, that call
Twenty four hours to change a life
A touch from beyond this world
That called me to His presence
A new wind to these lungs
New life within this soul
So maybe my feet aren’t so steady
But I do not fall
Not now He is here
And I stand before His glory
In the light of His majesty
I walk now forevermore

Jude 1:24-25

Jude 1:24-25

Yesterday’s Too Much

Yesterday’s Too Much (Psalm 32:8)

Was yesterday too much to take
There’s a burden upon your soul
Past mistakes lay heavy on your heart
Memories so real your cracks reappear
All that was wrong
All going wrong again
You think you’ll never get it right
Repeating old mistakes
You fall at every hurdle
Lay still my friend
Take a breath
A deeper breath than ever
Let the breath of Christ renew your soul
Close your eyes
Just feel Him there
The comfort
The peace
Listen to His words
His instruction for your life
A path for you to follow
Let Him be your guide
All those mistakes will fade away
He has a love for you
Deeper than your past
Let Him in
Let Him win

Psalm 32:8
