In The Shadows

 

sunrise on the mountain

There in the shadows
you feel deep within;
there in the shadows,
just call upon Him.

There in the shadows
His light will shine bright,
taking your darkness
and giving you light.

There in the shadows
when no-one is near;
there in the shadows,
He’ll free you from fear.

There in the shadows
is Jesus the Lord,
with love everlasting
that He can afford.

Under the shadow
of His healing wings,
filled with His wonder
and joy you will sing.

There in the secret place
of the most High,
under His shadow
You’ll ever abide.

One Thing Stands Sure

ONE THING STANDS SURE

Thunderstorms may follow clouds of grey
crisp winter snow may fall each day
winds of change may re-arrange
things may often look strange
but one thing stands sure
nought can obscure
Your love that
shines as
gold!

Fathomless Love

file8371286030197 morning

God’s fathomless love
keeps me day by day,
shines a light within
when my skies are grey,
keeps my heart in tune,
takes me through the night,
points my soul to heaven –
to Jesus, my Light

Morning Tweets!

birds


I hear them in the morning when I rise,
before the slightest glimpse of light appears.
A moment longer I must close my eyes;
their song so sweetly falls upon my ears.

The music of their tweets now fills the air.
Could man himself create a sweeter sound?
In silence I just want to linger there
and relish as the symphony abounds.

I know this time of bliss can only last
a while, for soon demands call me away.
But I’ll not hurry till the time is past,
for now the sounds of birdsong bid me stay.

So tweet and chirp my friends for I am blest
to hear your song as I arise from rest!
