If The People of My Name (2Chronicles 7v14)

I wrote this short ‘chorus’ recently after joining with several other fellow saints for a conference on ‘Rebuilding the Ruins’ of our Christian heritage. Nearly a hundred Christians over the past few months have joined our ‘Christian Antilockdown’ Telegram Group – Hope, Truth & Light. We are believers from all over the UK who are […]

As the Water Covers the Sea (Hab 2:14)

Do you think that Jesus merely came to save your soul?Do you think He had in mind a part but not the whole?Do you think throughout creationJust a few from every nationConstitute the consummation of His goal?Do you think that Jesus came to save your Sunday praise?Do you not suppose He would redeem our works […]

God’s Great Plan for the Nations

Tune = Somewhere over the Rainbow God’s great plan for the nations Near and far Is to render their kingdoms Under the Saviour’s care. Jesus’ hand is subduing Great and small; Earthly plans and all rulers Under His sway shall fall. One day we’ll look and see no more The crooked and deceitful Whore of […]

Jerusalem (Rev 21)

Jerusalem, sweet destination Beautified with heaven’s glory; We meditate upon your story – Away! We’re bound away Where the dusk is bright as day.

Scanctimono

Sanctimono, when will you come to your senses? Stop sitting on fences, appeasing the crowd; You are a scoundrel in mortal peril of treason Believing your reasoning Heaven’s court will allow.

Mighty Ahasuerus In the zenith of his power Summoned to the mother of all feasts Nobles unaware, In the frenzied air, God on high had set His eye On Mordecai the Priest Eighty and a hundred days Were scheduled by and by To manifest the treasures of the king; Furnishings of gold – Pure beauty […]

Step Up to the Plate – be a Caleb

[Tune = How Much Do You Think You are Worth – Graham Kendrick] As you trundle your way through the dessert Do you pine for those feasts from the past? When, in Egypt’s abundant provision, You were rarely reduced to this fast! Is the scope of your view your horizon? Are the storm-clouds descending your goal? […]

The Beatitudes > Matthew 5:3-10

Blessed are the poor in spirit For heaven shall be theirs; Such noble ones, as regal sons Of heaven, resurrection, And God’s kingdom, are true heirs! Blessed are the broken hearted Who see injustice done. Before too long, a tranquil song Will comfort all their grieving; Every tear cried shall be gone! Blessed are the […]
