FENCE

fence

 

I see you’re sitting on the fence,
You’ve been there for quite a while,
The straining grimace on your face,
The absence of a trace of smile,
You can’t fall backwards,that’s a sin,
Forwards is a step too far,
Humanness is pulling strings,
Locked inside an endless jar.

Do you trust an unseen God?
Do you free fall into space?
Have you nothing left to lose?
Only you know what’s the case,
Eerie whispers put you down,
You’re too sad to have a life,
You’ll forever have that frown,
Drowning in a sea of strife.

Break out now,don’t let him win,
You have the power from God within,
Fighting daily for your cause,
Wills you forward with applause,
Love is waiting to command,
All the darkness deep within,
Reach out to the unseen hand,
Walk together,conquer sin.

 

FERMENT

ferment

 

 

All around is boiling up
Into a ferment, fueled by greed
The world destroying what was meant
To be a paradise indeed
God is relegated to
A voice from times of distant past
He’s drowned out by the new age rant
Compared to Him, it cannot last.

So keep your eyes upon The Lord
His light will guide you through the mess
Of carnage that has been produced
By those who to the dark confess
The only thing of lasting worth
Is found in He who stands alone
The devil is a fleeting foe
Defeated by the Living Stone.

FERTILIZER

fertilizer

 

God is the fertilizer
On the seeds that we sow
He nurtures conditions
In which they will grow
We may be a part
Of a life changing act
And we will not know
Till our treasures unpacked
Just call it an honour
To follow The One
Who knows what He’s doing
Through His perfect Son

So if you feel led
By The Spirit inside
To talk about Jesus
Then try not to hide
For people you meet
May be heading for hell
Unless you divert them
From death’s tolling bell.

FINANCE

money

 

 

I’ve got all this money
I’m trying to save
I’m wanting a shed load
To take to the grave
I don’t want to worry
It’s peace that I crave
Insurance is what I desire.

They tell me the finances
Are pretty grim
Because we’re not tithing
They’re far from the brim
The vision is stalling
It’s looking quite dim
Why doesn’t God sort it out.

I’ve given you money
Possessions and wealth
To share with My people
To increase their health
So open your pockets
Start tithing with stealth
Test Me, and I will provide.

FLAWED

i choose

 

 

Despite the fact that we are flawed
He knew there was a chance
That what He had created
Would awaken from their trance
To realise their present life
Contained an empty space
That nothing in the world could fill
Till Jesus took first place.

So, if you are wondering
Why nothing that you do
Can bring an all consuming peace
Then maybe it is true
Until you seek The Son of God
And ask Him to reside
Your life will never reach the heights
That God meant to provide.

FLAWED

flawed

 

Despite the fact that I am flawed

God finds something to use

My gifts are still obtainable

Precious are my views

It shows that when He chose me

So rough and unrefined

He knew that I could be His child

If I was carefully mined

So, many tunnels later

And holier than a cheese

I’m still amazed by what flows out

On God’s anointed breeze

Investigate the outlet

A bloke, just as he is

Cracked, imperfect vessel

Containing heavenly fizz.

FLEECE

fleece

 

 

I lay my life out as a fleece
To catch Your precious dew
And let it soak into the parts
That are devoid of You
For I am still so insular
An island out to sea
Come and land upon the rock
That is my heart to thee.

Here I am Lord, I’ve expired
There is no fight in me
I come as gently as a lamb
As quiet as can be
There is no hope in what I am
I’ve sinned and I repent
Take Your headstrong, wilful child
Cause all of me is spent.
