    This one I wrote in a April several years ago. But I still enjoy it. I hope you do too.

     

    Springtime

    Today is a beautiful April day

    A steady breeze is blowing

    Buds on the trees are showing

    Today is beautiful in ev’ry way

     

    The sky is a cloudless blue above me

    The golden sunlight’s shining

    Grass in the fields swaying

    Life is on everything that’s around me

     

    A thought comes rather suddenly to me

    This how my outlook on life should be

     

    Springtime,  renewing my mind all the time

    With waters of life flowing

    From foundations of God’s Living Word

    Live like the breeze dancing

    Springtime, blooming out in joy all the time

    Like a blossom opening,

    The fragrance of God’s Living Word

    Singing praises to the King.

    Springtime in my life all of the time.

     

    The times change and the seasons pass away

    But in my soul I want it

    To always be ev’ry bit

    Springtime in every possible way

     

    New life comes forth all the time in the spring

    So I want the life inside

    To spring forth and never hide

    A flower of testimony for my King.

     

    Springtime,  renewing my mind all the time

    With waters of life flowing

    From foundations of God’s Living Word

    Live like the breeze dancing

    Springtime, blooming out in joy all the time

    Like a blossom opening,

    The fragrance of God’s Living Word

    Singing praises to the King.

    Springtime in my life all of the time.

        Teach Me Thy Will by A. J. Higgins

        Teach me Thy will, Lord! Teach me Thy will
        Show me your statutes, everyday still
        All of your promises are fulfilled!
        Teach me Thy will Lord! Teach me Thy will.

        In tribulation, trial, and doubt
        When everybody shuts me out
        I know that I can trust You alone
        Teach me Thy will Lord! Teach me Thy will.

        Your hymn is beautiful! Though short, it packs in a lot of thought while still wearing the beauty of song. Thank you for sharing!

        This one was a spontaneous inspiration. The phrase ‘facing the God I know’ hit me and I couldn’t shake it. So here is one of my newest ones. As usual, enjoy-share-and critique all you want!

         

        Facing (The God I Know)
        As the enemies encompass me with their spears
        As my eyes are filled by the pain’s bitter tears
        As the oceans seek to wash me to my grave
        I know there’s a God standing here, ready to save.

        Through the darkest of times and the fiercest of foes
        There’s a fortress stronger than forces or storms
        When the sorrows whelm me in depths full of woes
        I can face them all for He is the God I know

        The God I know gave all His love to redeem
        He made the moon and the sun’s golden gleam
        The God I know reached down to save this soul
        He restored each breech and made it whole
        I know the God I know can save me today

        There’s is strength found in a trust in His Word
        There’s a sharpness tempered in the blade of His sword
        When the giants mock at the child of the Lord
        Here’s where I stand, facing them for the God I know

        The God I know walked on the mighty deep
        Aroused the dead from an eternal sleep
        The God I know promised to safely keep
        His redeemed in time of urgent need
        I know the God I know can save me today

        In the battle, in storm, in the turmoil within
        Whether struggling, sorrowing or shadow
        In the ashes, in waves, in the pain within
        In the strength of the God I know I can stand (repeat)

        Psalm 119:11
        Your word I have hidden in my heart,
        That I might not sin against You.

            @dakota: here is yet another of my poems. Enjoy. 😀

             

            LONELY ROBOTS:

            Lonely robots roam forgotten lands.

            Roaming endlessly hidden paths,

            Some of which are mountainous,

            Or rather deserts, plains, arctic lands;

            And at times caves of biting wraths;

            Or, roaming some other land, overflowing in mysteriousness.

            Lonely robots similar to junky cans,

            Tinted in brass, intelligently-minded, and talented in math,

            Are machines of mechanical creativeness.

            Lonely robots roam forgotten lands,

            Escaping their creators, Man,

            Into a world of robotic mysteriousness.

            In a robot’s metal hands,

            Following the world’s forgotten paths;

            Are creatures of loneliness.

            Lonely robots roaming forgotten lands,

            May lead unpredictable paths,

            But are amazing robotic beings nevertheless.
