Dance Again

Dance Again

My darling keep on dancing
Although for now I’m gone
Someday we’ll be together
And we’ll dance before the throne

It’ll be okay without me
But don’t give on on tomorrow
Live the life you need to live
And keep dancing through it all

I see the angels waiting
I feel the light of the Lord
Lift all this pain away
I’ll be going home real soon

So don’t be afraid
Even though all tears may fall
Be strong my darling
For someday we’ll dance again

I feel peace again
With angels before
And your hand in mine
It’s time I’m going home

With you my heart and soul
Right beside our Lords
Goes with you always
Even as you dance

The love of our children
Grandchildren and great
Is with you always
Our strong man they look to you

So my darling keep on dancing
One day we’ll dance again
We’ll dance before the throne
Dance before the glory of the Lord

NOTE:
I recently rediscovered a poem I wrote last year, called The Last Fight, about a man saying goodbye to his dying wife, so this became the companion peace, his wife’s last wish before she fell asleep and went home.

So My Children – 2 Samuel 22:29

So My Children – 2 Samuel 22:29

I’ve seen the lonely child
Shivering in the night
Seen them tear the skin
Looking for a feeling
Where hope is near
Yet nothing works
As shadows close
Shadows just close
I’m calling out to them
Still they do not hear
So my children
Spread my word
For I am the light
To tear wide the darkness
For those in pain
Buried in shadows
I will bring light
To their darkest night
Yet they know not my name
So my children
Spread my word
So the lost may find the light

2 Samuel 22:29

Even In The Light – 1 Peter 3:14

Even In The Light – 1 Peter 3:14

Even in the light
Some days will be hard
The struggle
The fight
For honour not shame

Yet the light be the blessing
His blood be our strength
No fear
No anguish
By the power of His name

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

Look Up – Isaiah 40:25-26

Look Up – Isaiah 40:25-26

Fallen
Look up
Heart sinking
Lift your eyes
Darkness creeping
See the stars
All called by name
Set by the hand
The hand of the Creator
To light the night
So to the fallen
Look up
High to the heavens
There the grace of the Lord
Will lift you high

Don’t Let The Lies – John 12:46

Don’t Let The Lies – John 12:46

Don’t let the lies
Bind you in darkness
Don’t let his voice
Be a chain to your soul
Tearing at the flesh
Ripping wide the heart
For I have come
As a light unto the world
To bring light where there is darkness
To free you from it’s hold
So open your eyes
Believe in your heart and soul
Stand in my light
I release you from the lies hold

The Voice Of My Praise – Psalm 22:25

The Voice Of My Praise – Psalm 22:25

Illuminate the way
Light it with stars
The way I should go
Be the voice of my praise
Let them that see me
See the heart of You beat
Within my every beat
And all the things I do
Let them be the way
Be the voice of my praise
That raises Your name
Above all upon this earth

When All Else Fails – Psalm 25:1

When All Else Fails – Psalm 25:1

When all else fails
What have I got left?
At the end of myself
Who else is there?
Just the One my Lord
And in You I trust
In moments dark
And times of light
You’re always there
Day and night
In struggle and joy
So before all else fails
It’s in You I trust

That Day – Philippians 2:19

That Day – Philippians 2:19

Has it been that long
Since the night
That followed my darkest day
When into my life
You sent a voice
To tell me of Your worth
To start the fire of hope
That began to burn inside
Has it been six years
Since I contemplated life
And You bid me to hold
And sent me friends
To lead the way home
From that night
Sorrow turned to joy
And death to life
For that I am ever grateful
And to You I am ever faithful
