The Forest – Psalm 25:16-18

The Forest – Psalm 25:16-18

In the forest
And all alone
Snow gently falling
From frozen leaves
I shout, I cry
Yet not a soul hears me
I’ve been left alone
To fend for myself
But You, oh Lord
Always hear me
You ease my pain
And remove these trees
The enclose my soul
Each one a fear
I’ve refused to release
And now I am here
Beneath the great sunshine
And the gentle breeze
Of a warm summers day

Night And Day – 2 Samuel 22:29

Night And Day – 2 Samuel 22:29

Clouds can gather
A shadow falls
Night is coming
A darkness to life
In the midst of day
All I see is night
Craving the sunshine
Only feeling in the dark
But You are the light
To break through it all
Turning darkness to day
Shutting out the night
A lamp to my life
What I am without You
How ever would I find
My way on this path
Without You at my side

2 Samuel 22:29

Misery And The Bottle – Proverbs 31:6-7

Misery And The Bottle – Proverbs 31:6-7

My misery
No longer ties to the bottle
And the brokenness ti brought
Faded away
The beer
The wine
Seem all so distant
Not found upon this path
I walk with the Lord
With Him I find my joy
And the strength to leave my past
And the bottle no longer holds me
Released from deep within it’s grasp

Sound Of Thunder – Psalm 29:3-4

Sound Of Thunder – Psalm 29:3-4

The sound like thunder
Came over the waves
To meet yonder shore
Where a lone child hid
Hiding from the world
His shame and the pain
But in the thunder a voice
That broke through his shame
The voice of the Lord
Burnt through the darkness
The power of the voice
Lifted the soul
And carried him home
To a kingdom to belong to
No longer alone
Or hiding in shame

Psalm 29:3-4

Anxious – Philippians 4:6-8

Anxious – Philippians 4:6-8

Tasted the anxious
Held to the panic
Let it gather
And grip
I let it guide the heart
Helpless to fight against
I tried to climb above it
Put myself before it’s worth
But it seems to hold
Ever tighter
Just not letting go
I leave it so late to pray
But why?
As He always hears me
Always answers my cry
That’s when the grip slips away
It’s hold broken for now
And in His arms I fall
Free to enjoy His favour
Safe within His love

My Destruction – Proverbs 16:18

My Destruction – Proverbs 16:18

My destruction
All my pride
Could it all have been avoided
If I had opened up my world
Let them in sooner
To the darkness
And the despair
Could the fall have been less
If not for stubborn pride
A typical man
Wouldn’t show my weakness
Not until it was too late
And all came down
Then pride fell
And the light came in
To set me free
From the worst of myself
To open the doors
To a better path
To a better life

Proverbs 16:18

Just Hold On – Isaiah 35:4

Just Hold On – Isaiah 35:4

To all those
Treading the same paths
I wandered once before
Times long ago
When the bottle
A strange partner
In an effort
To break my world
To you
I say this
Hold on
Be strong
I know the pain
The emptiness
The despair
But He will come
Just wait
Stay strong
The world will change
Darkness to light
Hope from despair
So fear not
The time will come
Just hold on

Isaiah 35:4

My Own Darkness – Job 19:8

My Own Darkness – Job 19:8

Too many times
My own thoughts
My inner self
My own darkness
Forms the walls
That block my way
Shutting out the light
Fencing me in
The dark paces
My mind creates
Still He shines the light
That breaks on through
Taking down the walls
That block the way
Igniting the fires
The ones deep within
That dissolve the darkness
Leaving only my light

Job 19:8

If There’s A Beat – Hebrews 12:28-29

If There’s A Beat – Hebrews 12:28-29

And now they’ve come
To steal it all
To shake me down
To break it all
Beaten down
Not much left
Just a heart beat
No matter how faint
And if there’s a beat
Then there’s a song I can sing
It may be faint
Yet with every word
The beat gets stronger
Louder to be heard
So here I am singing
This worship song
To the only beat left
Beneath it all
Hear this song
It’s word of hope
There maybe little else left
Yet my worship will be heard
