    Here’s this week’s.

    Along the lanes and the country road
    Through these rugged hills the landscape comes alive
    Such vivid hues of scarlet and wine

    Blown on the wind of a stormy bode
    All the leaves drift down on pavement underneath
    With colors blush as these cheeks of mine.

    Above the road a sapphire sky
    That radiates bright with sunshine looks upon
    Itself in lakes so crystal and still

    Inside my raptured heart soars to fly
    On an inspiration that these hues can spawn
    And find my spirit filling with thrill

    These autumns roads declare a glory
    With some leaves as red as blood that can atone
    Some pale as the dying Savior’s brow.

    These autumn roads will be home for me
    A refuge from cheerless wanderings alone
    Can’t you come wandering with me now?

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

    That was beautiful!

    There's no discouragement
    That makes him once relent
    His first avowed intent
    To be a writer!

    The Eternal Kingdom
    by A. J. Higgins

    O, sing the mighty kingdom!
    Advance it now today!
    His truth, ere mortal wisdom,
    Had seen the light of day,
    Has beckoned every nation,
    To glorious salvation!
    He is the Lord of lords,
    And Word above all words.

    What kingdom never ceases?
    Our God’s own kingdom true!
    And still today increases
    For Heaven’s harvest view:
    His rule is never ending!
    And all His saints defending
    From Satan’s furious rage
    Against the kingdom age.

    No temple can be worthy,
    Except the heart of man!
    Not made of stones, nor earthly
    Designs of human plan.
    His church is ever glorious,
    Against the world, victorious!
    For Christ the crucified,
    On us, His blood applied.

    His sacrifice is greater,
    His very blood was spilled
    None other could be better,
    For Christ has canceled guilt!
    His reign is here forever,
    His kingdom ceases never!
    All faithful, join and sing
    Of Jesus Christ, the King!

    I’ve just been busy and kinda forgot about the forum. But I’m still writing hymns!

    This one is another very personal one to me. As always, critique and enjoy!!

    Rest in Him

    I know where there is a hushed abode
    If in my life the longings are heavy load
    A Savior, my Lord Jesus Christ

    In his nail scarred hands I can lay
    The longings that my soul can’t stay
    What better rest than leaning on His breast
    And trusting that He knoweth best

    I rest in Him for He is my Lord
    What can others offer me that’s better than
    Submitting me unto His plan
    I rest in Him for He is my Lord

    I rush to the Rock when wars arise
    And on my knees release the fear in my eyes
    To Mightiest Lord Jesus Christ

    In His mighty arms I abide
    I know  under His wings I can hide
    What then I should fear though warriors drew near
    And days ahead looked very dear

    I rest in Him for He is my King
    What then should I fear when He’s protecting me
    Defeated is the enemy
    I rest in my for He is my King

    I rest in the Lord, for He is God
    Though all my days be spent in toilsome plod
    Though all my dreams dissolve like salt in the sea
    Though all my longings never are what I’ll be
    I rest in the Lord, for He is God.

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

    Oh, wow! I keep forgetting about this. I am a bad thread-up-keeper . . . if there is such a word. . .

    Anyway, this week’s is rather short. Just something I started singing to myself when it was looking like a bad day. I hope it brings you some encouragement too. And critique all you like.

    I’ll be okay
    Though oceans are rough today
    And there seem to be rocks piled in the way
    I’ll be okay
    Though my smile just won’t stay
    And though the ends all frizzle, sizzle and fray
    I’ll be okay
    There’s a God who hears our praise
    And He sees when a child of His prays
    So when I feel
    Like I’m spinning my wheels
    I remember that He is here always
    And so I’ll be
    I’ll be okay

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

    Merry Christmas!!

    My Christmas Prayer
    All the lights are hung, twinkling
    Like a million stars glittering all over the walls
    By the window the tree is shining
    Crowned with a golden star, beaming its light throughout the halls
    And each stocking stuffed full with gifts
    And the sugar sweet flavor of cookies and pine still drifts
    All around to the sound of wrapping paper wrinkling

    I am marveling, thinking of-
    As I stand in the shadow of the holly on the door-
    Why all this is done and what love
    And redemption our Lord Jesus by His dying did pour
    Out the greatest gift given men
    And the story so glorious to us is written
    Within I celebrate the day He came from above

    As the hearth of fire warmly glows
    Eyes are steadily drifting closed
    And a song decants through the air
    I offer this hymn as my prayer

    Father, Thank you for Christmas nights like this
    For the little things I often dismiss
    I am grateful for Your son, the Savior
    I’m undeserving of any Favor
    I am asking that You would give me flame
    To remind them You’re Christmas’ name
    Lord, the world’s gone to madness, havoc reigns
    But remind me You’re stronger than these chains
    Peace on earth seems so far away this year
    In such times no glist’ning presents but tears
    Father, I know you’re here inside me
    On this cold, Christmas night I long to be
    A reminder that You’re the Light of Christmas
    And that You’ll return victorious
    Amen

    Icy air comes hastening in
    As I shrug on a coat. Without the house the wind has blown
    Snow over the windows. A thin
    Film of million flakes frosts over all the glass. They’ve flown
    Down the lane to build their castles
    As I tread drifts like I’m swimming in crystals
    I am singing inside to my symphony played within

    I ascend the crest of a hill
    Looking out over vales packed with all the powdery snow
    Out here everything is still
    Such a calm! All the struggling this scene could never know
    On this hill a’glowing with lights
    All this peace seems deceitful when all the world fights
    I would make the whole world like this if I could do what I will

    Out among the snow loaded trees,
    I get down on my knees
    As the snow swirls in the air
    I offer this hymn as my prayer

    Father, Thank you for Christmas nights like this
    For the little things I often dismiss
    I am grateful for Your son, the Savior
    I’m undeserving of any Favor
    I am asking that You would give me flame
    To remind them You’re Christmas’ name
    Lord, the world’s gone to madness, havoc reigns
    But remind me You’re stronger than these chains
    Peace on earth seems so far away this year
    In such times no glist’ning presents but tears
    Father, I know you’re here inside me
    On this cold, Christmas night I long to be
    A reminder that You’re the Light of Christmas
    And that You’ll return victorious
    Amen

    As the snowing quickens I cry
    Reaching up my hands to the sky
    You are Holy, I’ll adore You
    ‘Spite conflicts are crowding my view
    In this stillness I will raise
    Up a Christmas chorus and praise
    You, the Highest, Brightest light
    You’re the heart of Christmas tonight
    This my Christmas prayer up to You
    This my heart as life I walk through

    Father, Thank you for Christmas nights like this
    For the little things I often dismiss
    I am grateful for Your son, the Savior
    I’m undeserving of any Favor
    I am asking that You would give me flame
    To remind them You’re Christmas’ name
    Lord, the world’s gone to madness, havoc reigns
    But remind me You’re stronger than these chains
    Peace on earth seems so far away this year
    In such times no glist’ning presents but tears

    A reminder that You’re the Light of Christmas
    And that You’ll return victorious
    Amen

    These are all beautiful, y’all! 😀

    And @libby , I love that lullaby you wrote! I found myself singing it in my head as I read it, and I kind of want to see if I can put it to music… If you don’t mind me doing so! (If I do, I could try to send you a recording somehow.)

    Thank you so much, I appreciate your kind words more than you know <3

    You’re absolutely welcome to try putting it to music!  Do anything you like.  And I’d love to listen to the recording when you’ve completed it : )

    My email is libby.powell@frontier.com if you want to shoot me an email about figuring out how to get it to me when you’re ready.  Thank you for asking!

    In Christ,

    Libby

    This one I have been trying to finish for over a year now. Critque and enjoy!

    Resolutions

    I wrote my list of resolutions
    Not to create my own solutions
    I want to live like my Savior King
    Always to seek His kingdom first thing

    This list isn’t easy ones to keep
    But my redemption wasn’t cheap
    If Jesus died to redeem such souls
    Least I can strive for these goals

    My resolutions
    To walk with You in the strait, narrow way
    To always pour out my heart to you when I pray
    To give until giving is all I’ve got
    To lay up treasures that can’t be bought.
    To shine the light into the darkest night
    To lift my sword up in spiritual fight
    My resolutions

    All they can hold out is glitter and gold
    While You offer me riches untold
    Wealth of this world can’t compare to His
    This is my resolution for this

    Kingdoms may rage, scream against Jesus’ name
    And they might burn with rebellion’s flame
    I want to stand true, yet rest in Your hands
    Anchor my heart on Your commands

    My resolutions
    To walk with You in the strait, narrow way
    To always pour out my heart to you when I pray
    To give until giving is all I’ve got
    To lay up treasures that can’t be bought.
    To shine the light into the darkest night
    To lift my sword up in spiritual fight
    My resolutions

    To live every hour like it’s a new day
    To live every day like it’s a new year
    To live every year like it’s a new life
    To strive that my life be all for Him
    This my resolution

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