Eternal Life – in the Here and Now

Strength comes from knowing
Not from knowing that much
But from knowing the One
Who with Heaven’s sweet touch

Transforms life and longing
That was earthly and bound
By fears, grief, and sorrow
Which are truly profound

Seeing God with a Pure Heart
(Photo Credit © 2014 Jem Trehern – OurChristianIdentity.com )

Inspiration for the nation
For the crowd behind the cloud
Food for thought and divine drink
Found between workplace and sink

Is what we need first and foremost
Heaven’s breath, the Holy Ghost
Who will free us thoroughly
From life’s burdens – endlessly

In Your Arms…

There is a land not known before
Where surging billows touch the shore
Not loud and mighty as you’d think
But soft and slightly on the brink

Of a new life you could not see
As long as you swam in the sea
Of trouble, trial, and distress
You thought that life was all a mess

But suddenly and unforeseen
There is the King who calls His Queen
To leave the troubled sea behind
And enter rest that’s God-designed

The Mystery of God’s Love

You took the soul and said to her,
“My love, do come, and let me stir
Your heart and all that slept so long
Under a veil that seemed so strong

As if there was no final goal
For which I made you and your soul”
Intrigued by You and Your sweet voice
The longing soul knows there’s no choice

The Beauty Within

When the day turns to night
And I’m losing all sight
I do know what will be
And what I then may see

Through that dimly lit glass
There shines beauty first-class
As He opens the gate
To our eternal fate

What do we know?

Songs of Songs – THE Love Story (Picture taken from https://helpmeunderstandall.files.wordpress.com)

As long as all that what we know
Comes from this earth, from down below
From seeing all as if a show
As it was always, long ago

The truth behind cannot be seen
Unless we fluctuate between
The unseen realm where king and queen
Already live redeemed and clean

The Light of Salvation

On the Way … (Photo by Paul Schuberth)

His Life eternal here on earth
Who sees its beauty and its worth?
Although our eyes are opened now
It’s dimly view, through glass somehow

Into His realm, into His face
Beholding Him, receiving grace
Empowered by His Love, so true
To share His blessings, no one knew

Before God made them manifest
Giving His Spirit to these blessed
To you and me, to everyone
Who have believed in Christ, the Son

Where Roses Melt into the Air…

Your arms, they gently shelter me
From blame, and fear, and misery
You understand what others don’t
You saw my need which others won’t

You give me peace in hardships now
You ease my pain and touch somehow
The deepest depths inside of me
Indeed, my love, you’ve set me free

To climb the mountains by your side
To bridge the gap where there’s divide
To care for wounds of these depressed
Who suffer until they are blessed

The Beloved of God

There is a church that is unseen
It has no building, pew or screen
To display things of churchly life
Instead, this church is called His wife

You join that church by entering
Into Christ through surrendering
All that you have and what you are
To Jesus who’s the Morning Star

He’ll strip your self off from the heart
And nakedness will be the start
Of fellowship you didn’t know
As long as you sat in a row

The Flow of Love

There is a river deep inside
Where precious pearls of love abide
They wait for you to get them out
You’ll be enraptured, have no doubt
 
Approach the shore, leave all behind
Be sure that God’s love will be kind
To show you what it’s all about
And how to dig these gems there out
 
Just go in before fog will rise
Since Satan lurks there in disguise
And he will tell you, “That’s not true!
Do you think this is Heaven’s dew?”
