A Beautiful Story

I have decided to post some of my earlier work. I hope you enjoy them.

spring snowdrop

Softly as a pure, white dove
The snowflakes gently fell
A little lamb was given us
On that crisp, winter morn

And as He grew, new life was found
Found deep within the earth
Petals beautifully did spring forth
And not a blemish spoiled

Fresh sounds of song rolled off the leaves
Of fragrance laced with heaven
And that dear lamb, God’s chosen One
Was led toward that tree

The tree of death, the tree of life
And today this is given thee
To die with Christ, be born again
Never again be led astray

The wondrous Shepherd of mankind
With grace whispers your name
Come forth, come forth
From darkness holding, life begins with Me

Take My hand and walk beside Me
Bring your heart to pastures green
Living waters will cleanse, restore you
Open the gate that is nailed with My pain
Your shame is taken
My love is given
Silent knocking on your heart no more

His Death, Our Life

the cross

Pierced by hatred
Pierced by thorns
Crowned with pain
He died for all

Unrelenting agony
Suffered He for us
Torn, jagged flesh
Whipped with cruel bone

Life, it left Him
Emptying, abandoning
Covering every sin upon Him
Crimson, yet spotless, He bled for me

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
In bondage to those nails
A prisoner; but free
Fulfilling the will of the Father

May we never cease to cherish
That cherished moment
When He cried, “It is finished”
Glory to God in Heaven, forever shall be
