Sing Out Loud

Poetry

1st song I wrote – 2002

You will know a tree by its fruit

Let the little children come to me

Open your heart to the Son of God

Jesus said follow and believe

Do unto others

As you do to yourself

Be patient, kind and long-suffering

Hope in the Lord oh my soul

Be thankful for the cross you hold

Sing out loud from my heart

Giving thanks to the One I know

Utterances I do not understand

All my love given to the Son of Man

Be still and know that I am God

I am working all things for your good

I am merciful, gracious and kind

Do not judge others, vengeance is mine

God in the flesh You came to be

You gave up Your life to die for me

How can I give You all I owe

When You deserve more than I’ll ever know

Sing out loud from my heart

Giving thanks to the One I know

Utterances I do not understand

All my love given to the Son of Man

Give Thanks 

Poetry

Grateful for trials 

For hard times and growth

Grateful for treasures

For pleasures, for both

Grateful that falling

Finds wings to take flight

Grateful the valley

Gives way to great heights

1 Thessalonians 5:18

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.

Give Him Praise

Poetry

The good news is things have been going pretty well lately.  There’s no chaos, drama or pain.  The bad news is I do most of my writing during difficult seasons.  😉  Soooo, I’m going to re-post a few oldies while I re-kindle my inspiration.  🙂

Should there be any comfort in Christ

By His blood, should we be saved.

Should His arms ever hold us tight,

Then let us give Him praise.

 

Should our failures ever meet His grace

Should our tears be wiped away

Should our hope be restored again

Then let us give Him praise.

 

Should our lives reflect His name

Should we be rescued from our shame

Should He speak to our hearts each day,

Then Let us give Him praise.
