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

Like Little Children…

Crossing the Jordan… 😉

A child, so humble and so bold
To rise against unrighteous cold
Unkind and loveless heresy,
Is hard to find apparently

Instead you see them quarrelling
About what’s right or wrong, they cling
To doctrine, dogma ill-conceived
And leave their audience deeply grieved

There is Hope of Redemption Ahead

There is always hope…

Like a light in the dark
That leaves merely a spark
So is hope not in vain
Although all goes insane

If God puts to the test
Those to who’ll manifest
His great love and goodwill
So you see time stands still

Thank You…

Thank You for some laughter in the rain
And for tears of joy mixed up with pain
For new life that follows death
Resurrection’s first fresh breath

Breathed on us out of clear sky
That makes dry bones surely sigh
See, flesh and skin from on high
Yes, His kingdom’s life is nigh

O Eternal God
The soul longs for You
Cause You bless the soul
With unspeakable
Delight…

What a burning love
That came down from You
Through Your Spirit’s coal
With unthinkable
Bright light…

Set off fireworks
Though invisible
To nature and man
Branded on her heart
Fulfilled is Your plan

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

A New Life

Hell-bent in search of excellence
A certain guy, let’s call him Lance
Decided to sit on the fence
He did not want to fail his fans

Once someone has been on the top
He is afraid to be a flop
And clutches at a straw to prop
The set of lies he cannot stop

Not only men like that do fear
To always drive in bottom gear
Because of public in the rear
Which focuses so close and near

God’s Love for You

The psalms reveal that God relates
To human beings and their fates
For those with broken hearts and more
He is all comfort to the core

Although this world seems to go down
His Word is sure, no need to frown
Whoever does rely on Him
His eyes will nevermore grow dim

Despite all pain, struggle and strife
The Bread from Heaven gives us life
By pouring Love into our heart
So in communion we take part
