Treasure

Will you promise?
Will you agree?
If I give you my love
If I pledge my trust
To treasure my name
To hide me in your heart

Secrets

Secrets of contentment
shared in silence
nothing to say
nothing has changed
nothing to perform
nothing moved
necessary oxygen
familiar as a dream
breathed into me.

Gold

Water weaves gold
amidst the torment
of each journey
and I am bleeding
in crimson streams
as He dies for me.

Swept Away

Swept away forever
The measure of dread
In flaming fire
The smoke of torment
A consuming fire
Sins contamination
Poured out at the cross
A fury of fire
Drink the wine of Gods wrath
From the cup of anger
Grasp the sweetness
Crimson savoured
Once and forever
We have been redeemed
The price paid for
Perfect atonement
In holy union
That brings us now
To perfection and joy.

Satisfied

Fully satisfied in the promise
Fully immersed in your grace
Mesmerized by the cross
Basking in the glory of your finished work
Permanently blessed
Permanently redeemed
He is constantly smiling at me.

Promise

Every fleeting breath
Knows the joy
Of wonder
For drifting songs
Sung in a symphony
Wakes the world
Heralds the promise
Just for me

Unpacked Suitcase

Unpacked suitcase
Chestnut shadowed curves
Small perfect window
Innocent silhouette
Hidden year on year

Unpacked suitcase
Honeysuckle malice
Blistered passion
Solace of hope
Past becomes the future

Unpacked suitcase
Mistress of crimson
Mania or despair
Legacy `filled chest
Ransom’s treasure


Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life on My account will find it – Matthew 10:39.
