I will give You thanks,

I will sing praises.

Lord, I will bow down

I will, and I DO!

I will call out, Lord,

And will read Your word

I’ll walk through troubles

Asking for Your help.


Because You love me,

Your right hand will save,

Do not forsake, Lord,

The work of Your hands.

I will give You thanks,

I will sing praises.

Lord, I will bow down

I will, and I DO!

As you decorate your home for Christmas,

And put the tinsel on the tree;

As you approach the Bethlehem story,

May God’s peace and goodwill be yours.


When the holiday season is over,

And God removes the world’s tinsel,

Even when you no longer hear music,

Remember to sing your praises.


Don’t put Christmas goodwill back in the box

As you pack away the wise men,

For god will decorate your heart with hope,

As long as you will allow Him.

When Holy Light exposes me,

O Lord, I need Your strength

To face whatever You’ve revealed,

The opportunity now

To examine myself.

O Lord, I seek forgiveness.

Small Details

Would you prefer the “Big Picture,”

Or would you really want to know

All small details that will happen?

God won’t bother you with details,

All the things that you can’t handle,

Because He wants to have your trust.


God is in charge of everything,

The who, the what, the where and when;

He knows the how and why of ALL!

For what will be is in His will,

And His time will be His timing.

So, why would you sweat the small stuff?

Through All Problems

I do not need to take all past problems with me,

              To take them out, examine them again,

              To cut myself once more on their sharp edges.

If only I would learn

              To ask God’s aid to guide me through --

                            Around, over, or through all difficulties --

              Clear to the other side;

              And then to leave all problems behind me,

                            In God’s more than capable hands.


God does not look for perfection in my life,

              For He, Himself, is perfect.

He does, though, ask for my persistence.

              That, once repented and forgiven,

              I persist in desiring Him above all else.

              Because He is with me,

He will guide me through all problems--

              If I but remember to ask.

Holiness Lived


Discarding security

For financial risk,

He left His day job;

Became one of the homeless.

Living in danger,

He was indifferent

To society’s verdict:

(He ate with outcasts,

“friend” to every man,

Political activist!),

All the way to point of death!

Holiness lived out,

As Creation intended;

Supreme harmony,

One with His Father.
