Unleashed

Thrust to the earthThe beautiful cherub whose brilliance once shoneUgliness unleashedAs he lifted his heart, his being cast downTempting, beguiling, deceiving one Unleashing his hatred on simple man Unleashing his horrors on the Holy One. Man of Sorrows, no comeliness nor form Sent as a babe on a quiet morn Despised and rejected for the truth brought forth Nailed to a tree, His blood poured out He bowed his head as He breathed His last The beautiful love unleashed on

Weary and Weak – Updated

Weary and weak, Are you weary and weak? Come and seek, Come and seek First His kingdom And His righteousness And all these things Shall be added unto you! Are you weary and weak? Weary and weak? Come and seek His Kingdom! Are you weary and weak? Are you weary in your walk, Weary in your talk, Weary in the days of this life? Weary in your heart, Weary of the dark Jesus calls you to be His light… Weary

Marching Orders

Marching orders, Where shall I go? Marching orders to stand, Grounded and strong, Having done all, My marching orders command That I stand. Stand strong in the Spirit And strong in the hope Of the One who has given His all; Stand strong in commitment, Strong in the compassion Of He who Redeemed from the fall. Stand full of passion For His glory and might; Stand in His strength Because it’s His fight. Stand! ADW

Lord, You Saw Through My Eyes

Lord, You saw through my eyes, You felt with my hand; You’ve walked in my footsteps, Able to stand Your ground. Lord, You lived in busyness, Taking time to rest; You lived with demands, But had time to invest In those who sought You.

Lord, When They Consume My Time

Lord, when they consume my time, I pray that they consume You; When they sit at my feet, I ask that they would see Less of me and more of You. Lord, when they’re in my presence, It’s Your presence I pray they might feel; Through my actions and words I pray that they’ll learn More of You and less of me.   ADW

Lord, Show Me

Lord, show me the idols that creep into my life; Lord, show me the gods that invade my heart, Competing for ground that is set apart, Sanctified by You… Lord, may my aim be true! Give me faith to believe And trust that is strong To stand firm in You, Standing where I belong   ADW

Let Your Joy Ring

Lord, let joy ring through the earth; Lord, let Your glorious love spring forth As we celebrate our Savior’s birth… Lord, let our hearts sing out! Lord, may our spirits soar; Lord, may we rejoice forevermore As we contemplate the One we adore And the wondrous work He’s done! Lord, may Your power dwell within The people You’ve set free from sin, No longer strangers, now, but kin… Lord, may Your Spirit fill!   ADW

Long-Range Goals

Long-range goals Are set aside When something closer Catches our eyes. Sacrifice the piggy bank To get a little treat, Quickly to be eaten up, And yet the other needs Remain. Sacrifice the kitty To satisfy the flesh… Gone too soon, the temporal; More distant goals are still unmet. Alas! Eyes on the temporary, Though the temporary fades, Sometimes indulgence in these things Is better spent in other ways.   ADW
