    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
          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

          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,

          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.
