    Lyrical Poems are Welcome here!

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

    This is one I wrote a while ago. I haven’t revised it in a while, so if anyone see anything that could be improved, feel free to comment! Enjoy!

    Faith

    We wander the dark valley of our doubt
    Insisting that security is better than faith
    And we allow the fears to follow us about
    We falter and fall ’cause we’ve lost strength

    Lord Jesus abides within His children
    And He calls us to courage; not to cowardliness.
    If we would just forget all our fears, how we’d change then!
    We’ll try and would see what faith can do

    Faith perceives all things invisible
    Faith believes all things incredible
    Faith receives all things impossible
    To attain to a heaven, unimaginable

    Help our fainting hearts to trust in You,
    To walk out on the water with the Lord of wild waves-
    To soar above on eagles wings and live, brave and true-
    Always clinging close beside our Lord.

    Faith removes the mightiest mountains
    Faith casts down all the tallest giants
    Faith closes jaws of fiercest lions
    To attain to a crown, incorruptible

    Faith walks out of the fiery furnace
    Faith endures the hostile wilderness
    Faith braves unbidden the king’s palace
    To attain to a prize, unreachable.

    Faith recants not at stripes and scourging
    Faith falters never at stones and burning
    Faith triumphs o’er the grave and dying
    To attain to a life, unimaginable

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

      Thank you, Dakota, for this poem as well!

      Are you planning on publishing a poem book sometime…? Because you write a lot of them.

      @kari-karast  I’m glad you like it!

      @andrew  I really want compose music for them and sell them as songs. But learning to compose is coming slowly . . . I might do a poem book for the less lyrical ones.

      This is one I wrote the other day, while reading a very eye-opening book on evangelism. I hope the Great Commission is more to us in our everyday lives than just black and white words on the page.

      Broken World (Here I am)
      Here I am slacking, LORD. I’ve been indifferent
      For the most part my years have been in leisure spent
      Pursuing what’s good; yet forgetting what’s better
      Entangling my soul in a world of care and fetters

      This is the world, oh LORD. They have been captivated
      In the pursuit of pleasure never abated
      While time passes on and their life dissipates
      So Lord, move me to warn of the judgement that awaits

      Here I am halting, LORD. I have been hesitating
      From the world hiding, I have been stagnant, waiting
      For super-spiritual me to suddenly appear
      When everything needed to serve is ready right here

      It’s a broken world, LORD
      And the judgement will come to them, a blazing sword
      It’s these broken souls, LORD,
      For whom Your Son, the Messiah, died. Blood was poured
      Liberating love flows upon all those who will believe
      Help me to remember that once that broken world was me

      Here I am kneeling, LORD, I have been praying so hard
      To hear Your voice. I do hear but yet disregard.
      Now that the day’s come, I must arise to the task
      Submitting my stubbornness to whatever You would ask

      Here I am standing, LORD, I am now ready to go
      To the world with Your sacred Gospel Light to show
      Though supernatural foes stand in the path
      I know that Your power can overcome that Devil’s wrath

      Here I am ready LORD, I want to be Your witness
      After Your pattern I’ll tell them of Your goodness
      Then I tried walking the fence, so lukewarm and slack
      Now kindled by love I’ll burn for You, with no looking back

      It’s a broken world, LORD, their emptiness and their strife
      It just falls so far short of eternal life
      Here I am standing, LORD, willing to do what You would
      Remind me that the sword still sheathed does no good
      It is a broken world, LORD. Here, use me for Your honor
      Here I am, oh LORD, to serve in this broken world

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