A Chorus of Heaven’s Love

Star Flower

Can you see the bars ‘cross heaven
Where the starry notes are laid
Each little sound, so reminiscent
Creation’s song which He first made

Flickering starlights, melodies pure
Reach eyes forth and discover His Word
Only in the darkest hour
Chorus seen, sight unheard

Some of us … in the deepest night
Some … in the light of day
Only those who pass through the grey, will
Forever see the love of His way

‘The Carousel of Love’ in “Fragrance from the Spring”

carousel horse
Stepping upon the carousel of love
We offer our hearts to God and each other
Taking a picturesque seat we look and smile gently
At the one we have promised our life to obey

The days are beginning in new wedded bliss
Slowly at first and we wonder at the hours
Hours of changing scenery and feelings
One is up, the other down

One is down, the other up
We continue to love and hold hands when we can
Sometimes within the realms of day
We meet and share each others dreams

The moments take on new momentum of time
We often miss the beauty of things passing by
But because we are one, on this journey and beyond
We can cherish each other, no matter what comes

Cherish the one to whom we’ve been given
A wonderful joy, sent straight from heaven
Because one day this beautiful carousel of ours
Will slow so we can almost walk right along beside
Then our dreams will seem clearer, we will perfectly see
Our life as one, on this merry-go-round

As one is up, the other is cherished
As one is down, the other is loved
Together meeting, life moves forward
Strengthening and caring and yet strengthened and cared for

To the One who has placed us upon this unknown journey
We thank You for bringing us preciously together
Lord Jesus may Your peace and joy ever surround us
And through wind, hail and sunshine, Your Word always keep us

Step Into His Footprints

Intensify my love for Thee,
Upon the misty shore,
Where Thou once walked with Divine footprints,
And left me desperately searching for more.

How can I follow Thee … at that,
Thy firmest plea of command?
Found in precious words of the Word,
(I need to see the way Thou hast taken),
To follow and there I’ll stand.

Help me Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
No fear given, no fear of any kind,
Clothed me so lovingly with priceless wonders,
Power, love and a disciplined mind.

‘For God gave us not a spirit of fearfulness; but of power and love and discipline.’ 2 Timothy 1:7 American Standard Version (1901)

‘There is no fear in love: but perfect love casteth out fear, because fear hath punishment; and he that feareth is not made perfect in love. We love, because He first loved us.’ 1 John 4:18-19  American Standard Version (1901)
