AT LAST

by mikeb

 

At last there is a beam of light
Coming from your being
Years of wear and tear have brought
The sight that you are seeing
You’ve tried to keep the past contained
Believing you’re okay
Finally you’ve seen the truth
You’re calling it a day.

CHOICE

by mikeb

What is the purpose
Of living a life
Conformed to a world
That’s stagnating in strife
Where beauty is laughed at
And it is the norm
To follow the devil
In one aimless swarm.

HECTIC

by mikeb

 

What a hectic life we lead
Busy people doing stuff
Read our bibles, say our prayers
As long as we are doing enough
To live the life that we believe
Will earn our way to pastures rich
Where we can graze like fatted calves
And go through life without a hitch.

CALCIFIED

by mikeb

 

Stumbling through the wilderness
I’ve reached a wall so high
Preventing me from going on
I can no longer lie
About the way that I have changed
I thought my past was dead
But still I am my selfish self
I am myself instead.

BASED

by mikeb

 

Based on what we know of God
Believing what His word doth say
About His endless love for us
Which doesn’t ever go away
Knowing what He did for us

BURDEN

by mikeb

 

The rubbish presses on your back
As you head for the cross
The things that fill your heavy sack
You’re desperate to toss
The burden of your sinful life
Is weighing on your mind
But soon you’ll drop it on the ground
And leave your sins behind.

HELLO LORD

by mikeb

HELLO LORD

Hello Lord, I’ve come to chat
About the coming day
Knowing You have plans for me
Means You must have Your way
So I offer up myself
My thoughts, my words, my deeds
Everything I give to You
The blossoms and the weeds.

HELP ME

by mikeb

 

Help me be more positive
In everything I do
All that I’ve accomplished
Is entirely due to You
The glory goes to You, oh Lord
Your grace in me abounds
Remind me not to get too big
Be humble in my sounds.

COLOSSUS

by mikeb

 

You have the power and the might
To turn me into a colossus
I need not fear the strains of life
All of the things that boss us
For if I choose to turn to You
Trusting that You will provide
Then surely nothing can overcome
The Lord I have inside.

WRONG

by mikeb

 

You mean to be a Christian
And follow in His ways
But something that you practice
Proves this is not the case
Deep inside you know it’s wrong
But hey you feel so great
The devils’ got his claws in you
You’ve gone and grabbed his bait.

PRODIGAL

by mikeb

 

The prodigal son was rather bored
His world was endlessly dull
He wondered if by getting some loot
He could make his life more full.
So off to dad he meekly went
To claim what he was due
He nearly fainted, the answer was yes
And gladness did ensue.

CISTERN

by mikeb

 

In my cistern, there I lay
Living water drained away
Open to the devils realm
God no longer at my helm
What a change in such a flash
Covered in a nasty rash
Could I ever hope to be
Back to where I was with He.

CHILL

by mikeb

 

You don’t have to be too good
To do the works of God
You don’t have to know it all
Before you get the nod
He can use you as you are
A sinner just like me
Let Him lead you to the place
Where He wants you to be.

BENEATH

by mikeb

 

Beneath the surface of the pond
Amongst the murky depths
Unseen bodies live a life
Of permanent unrest
The surface is a joyous place
Sunlight streams across
But the deeper that you go
Darkness is the boss.

ASTRAY

by mikeb

 

You wander in and out of sin
It’s difficult to stay
Upon that pot holed narrow road
You trip and go astray
Into the devils’ wonderland
Where naughtiness abounds
You revel in your new found life
Until you come around.

REASSURING

by mikeb


Its very reassuring

To know that when you sin

There is a way back to your Dad

He’s sure to let you in

For Jesus paid the penalty

For all that we have done

HELP

by mikeb

 

If you’re looking for some help
With what you’re going through
And if everything you’ve tried
Has left you feeling blue
Then hand it over straight away
To He who knows the cure
You needn’t go another day
With what you must endure.

YOU CANNOT TAKE IT WITH YOU

by mikeb

You cannot take it with you
That’s what they always say
No matter how you build your pile
When you’re gone, it will stay
So while you’re being stingy
By hoarding loads of dross
You’re missing out on what it’s for
And all your gain is loss.

YOU GAZE

by mikeb

You gaze upon anothers walk
Wishing you could emulate
Everything they’re seen to do
Wow, amazing, they’re so great
Must be something that they eat
Tuned in closely to their Lord
I will never be like them
Have to try and get on board.

THE ROCK

by mikeb

 

The Rock that I stand on
Is firm and unyielding
Supporting my movement
Whatever I’m fielding
He’s there when I falter
Slip off of the path
He’s ready to help me
Turn sorrow to laughs

SACRIFICE

by mikeb

A man is told what He must do
To bring about a link to God
Though He surely has a choice
He knows He must and gives the nod
To what must be a dreadful death
A road to agony and strife
The time of year is here my friend
When Jesus gave His perfect life.

REACH FOR ME

by mikeb

Reach for Me when you feel sad
When life’s no longer fun
I know what you are going through
I’ve been there with My Son
Though you feel like giving up
I can reverse your fate
Turn to Me, your greatest fan
It never is too late.

CHRISTMAS

by mikeb

christmas-2

Here we are awaiting Christmas
Storing up our gifts and food
Spending lots of lovely money
Don’t forget, we must include
Auntie Betty, Uncle Norman
Cards for all upon our list
Daren’t forget a single person
Can’t upset the one that’s missed.

FUTILE

by mikeb

 

You drive along so happily
Upon a wholesome road
Things are okay in your life
A perfect episode
Then you get a certain thought
It is against the grain
Just a peep, it cannot hurt
The road to hell again.

CHRISTMAS IS COMING

by mikeb

 

 

Christmas is coming
And Apples getting fat
Lots of lovely gadgets
Landing on your mat
You may have an I Phone
An I Pad or a Mac
But there is an alternative
That won’t leave you in lack.

HOUSE

by mikeb

hou

 

The house is dark, the blinds are drawn
There is no sign of life
The days drag on their dreary way
A place of fear and strife
The joy of colour turned to grey
There is no joy at all
What has happened to this house
When will some daylight call.

LORD I COME

by mikeb

lord-i-come

Lord I come and give my life
To do with as You please
Take this apathetic child
Fill him with Your breeze
For I’ve been floating for so long
It’s time I made a move
To reach the bank that You are on
My willingness to prove.

TWIXT

by mikeb

tw

Twixt us and God is Jesus
He is The stepping stone
A friend who gives us comfort
We never are alone
His Holy Spirit guides us
Works tirelessly within
To change our worldly blueprint
And help us with our sin.
