The Making Of The Soul

April 20, 2014

The making of the soul
Is something we all know
With fire and advice
We go down a trail
That finds us in the midst
Of making our own soul.

Modest understanding
Labels on nothing
Going forward with a blessing
Showered in unconditional love.

Quickly, Busy, Get It Done

April 17, 2014

Quickly, busy, get it done
Figure out how without a scowl
Quickly, busy, get it done.

Rejoice in life, let it flow
Sacrifice not one iota
Of those things that make you whole
Quickly, busy, get it done.

You’re not the Father, nor the Son
You are you
The only you, the only one
So quickly, busy, get it done.

Simple and sweet
Is the treat
I’ll take to the fair.

No heartache
Or malicious disgrace
Just simple and sweet
To the fair.

How Long Has It Been

How long has it been
Since I heard from you?

Where have you been
Since we laughed, just us two?

Together again would be nice
Even if it’s not all sugar and spice.

Dear Lord, My God

Dear Lord, my God
Let me be
Part of a world that is happy.

Dear Lord, my God
Let me see
Things of beauty in all I perceive.

Dear Lord, my God
Let me hear
The words of my soul
Let them guide me where I need to go.

Dear Lord, my God
Let me feel
The spirit that lives inside of me.

Dear Lord, my God
My Spirit, my Soul
I need your guidance
Your knowledge, your company
Here by me, where’re I go.
