OUR SAVIOR

I cannot be more thankful to You, Lord
For the wonderful life you’ve given me
You, the Creator of the universe,
Have kept Your watchful eye on me
A mere mortal
Having entered caves ready to collapse
Sailed churning seas that drown
Strode upon Satan’s field of snares
Laid to crush and kill
Contemplated taking his demon’s drugs
Distributed daily on the corners
Of my consciousness

You, Lord, tethered Your saving line to me
Not letting harm prevail
You led me to a haven of safety
Your bosom
To feel the warmth
See the pure light
Emanating from Your Being
While in a dream later in my life
Impressed upon me
The closeness of Your love for me
The bond you want to form
And Your sacred mission
To save not only me
But all mankind

SONG FOR FALLEN SOLDIERS

Why did they have to die?
Each hero stepped up and said,
I will go.
I will protect you.

They were more willing
than brave.
What faced them
they met
with honor,
With the determination
to save others’ lives,
Not counting their own.

An intense struggle
became their lot.
Not turning back
became their practice
The reality they chose.

Kingdoms, nations, peoples
they carried on their backs
Whose destiny they handed to God,
With faith in the outcome.

When they fell
They counted not their loss,
But rejoiced in the safety
for those they loved.

Their sacrifice,
Preordained by God
is lifted before us.
They stand forever immortalized
as heroes.
Those who’ve kept us free.
Those whose first thought was,
I will go.

THE GREAT CAPTAIN

A new day is dawning.
Peace and safety are harbored in my heart
for I sought the Lord’s counsel;
Wisdom and understanding guide my sails.

The Lord is my compass;
Oars I need not
for His breath moves me
when winds are calm.

My spirit stirs within me.
I seek the Lord
for I am burdened;
My brother knows You not, Lord.

He sails into tempestuous seas
seeking adventure,
But is in danger of going down
into the abyss — an eternal death.

Lord, calm the waves.
Draw him to safe shore.
For I will seek him, teaching him Your ways.
You, the Great Captain, will direct his ship forevermore.
