Crimson River


Years past, countless seconds, hearts longing,
Eternity, the fulfillment of the void,
Inside yearning for loves tender hold
Towards the day, when I can embrace
The all satisfying glory of God.

A crimson river cascades near me,
Overwhelming deluge pure and intense,
Eternal life supreme in its happiness
Imploring me into its vast fullness
Why would I not drink of its sweetness?

Crimson Horror


Healed
My redemption
By his death
Blows of crimson horror
With his stripes I am healed.

Purposed
My salvation
Through his torture
Nails of crimson horror
His chastisement brought me peace.

Eternal
My forgiveness
At the cross
Iniquity paid in crimson horror
Past, present and future sins,

The Wine of Heaven


The wine of heaven
Poured into us
Glorious grace
Goodness

The promise of heaven
Attained for us
Perfect peace
Prevails

The joy of heaven
Showered to us
Ransomed riches
Rejoices

The favor of heaven
Freely Available
Lavish love
Interweave

The glory of heaven
Given in God
Unthinkable union
Unmerited

The dance of heaven
On the inside
Exuberant embrace
Infinite

Crimson Agent


The stain remained
Terror of death
Bleakness
Conscious condemned
Hopelessness

Distorted shame
Faiths obstruction
Demanded
Ruinous guilt
Cursed

Crimson agent
Cleansing relief
Transform
Eternal life
Freedom

The blood of Christ
Total forgiveness
Endless
Clear conscious
Righteous.

Crimson Union

Joined in crimson union eternally made secure
Holy, righteous, forgiven cemented in God’s abundant grace.

Crimson Truth


Was Christ’s death enough?
To justify all those who believe
To free all in sins chains
Life to all who receive

The cross is freedom from the law
Nothing else is necessary
Nothing else is needed
Nothing else is required
Nothing added

The cross is grace to everyone
Eternal life to all who believe
Crimson truth to cleanse sins stain
The answer to all who receive

Crimson Justified


In Christ alone is acceptance
Condemnation consumed
Nothing now can separate us
From the love of God
The power of perfection in union
New life inside abound

If the world rejects us
He accepts us in his grace
If the world hates us
He loves us in his grace.

In Christ death is freedom
Crimson justified
Now we have his perfection
By relationship in God
The glory of heaven in union
Invades our tortured mind.
