"His Story Repeats"

Every time a sinner repents
Every time an addict quits
His story repeats

Each time you’re touched by the Spirit
And when you do the Word after you hear it
His story repeats

Read the Bible say a prayer
Love someone show them you care
His story repeats

It started with twelve
Get your Bible off the shelf
His story repeats

His story repeats
would you like to hear it again
for the first time?

"Spirit Poem II"

This is you Lord
What would you have me say
I write as you speak
I’m yours
Speak Lord speak

You make me strong when otherwise I’m weak
I love you I love you
You love me You love me

God is good all the time
all the time God is good
Jesus is Lord Jesus is Lord

Where’s the reason, the rhyme?
What, Lord, should I type?

I let my fingers flow as I yield to you
What are your words, Lord
What are your words?

You inspired men of old
and now you inspire me
With pen with keyboard
I write for you
for you are worthy you are worthy

Where’s the message? What’s the point?
I write for you instead of smoking a joint

You are my high when I am down
You are my low when I am up
You bring stability, firmness, foundation
No drug can match you
No drink can touch you
No substitute compares
You O Lord bring breath to my bones

I don’t want a new drug
I don’t want a huge hug
unless it’s from you unless it’s from you

Only you are a good Substitute
for me on the cross
for me in the grave
for me

in hell

I rise with you Lord I rise with you
Death could not hold you
Hell lost its grip
You are free you are free

and so

am I


Arrayed in white
Loved by Light
Known from of old
Sparkles like a diamond
Beauty thrice refined
Crowned with gold

Bride made glorious
Bride victorious
He gave up His life
All bloody and red
Then raised from the dead
Purchased He His wife

Sword on hip
Hand on hilt
Ready to be engaged
Bride of battle
Dowry of cattle
A thousand hills grazed

Resolute she stands
With upraised hands
Ardently yearning
Her heart ablaze
With fixed gaze
Awaiting His returning

"One White Throne To The Other"

John asked you to come quickly, to come with haste
I ask that you wait until I’ve dumped my waste

O Lord please don’t be in a rush to capture
I would prefer to flush before the rapture

And when comes your determined day and hour
Please let me have finished taking my shower

When those left behind have time to think of me
I’d like it to be without the stink of me

"Call Of The Great Sea"

To me! To me!
Beckons the Great Sea
To me! To me!
You ships of Tarshish

Return to your vows
You prophets errant
Keep your new vows
You pagans penitent

The time is near
The time is come
It’s been three years
Bring your sons

Load your silver
Cart your gold
Bring your apes
Shine your stones

You kings of the isles
You merchants of the sea
Higher than any mountain
I wish you could see

Search the whole sea
Seeking the city Zion
Never will find it
Unless you’re right on

To me! To me!
You sons of Tarshish
Even with your expertise
Repent! Turn to Me!

"Dinner With The King"


He’s here!
I’m not ready!


Can’t wait


I open

He enters
Laden with foods fine
I know I’m soon to truly dine
Bread and meat
Milk and honey
Water and wine
He’s here!
We sit
We eat
We dine

Into each other’s eyes we gaze
He knows
My secrets innermost
And still he came
I eat
I’m not the same

He rises
The meal is done
I reach for the door
He grabs my hand
The dance is begun

He is the king!
I sing I sing
All hail the king!
I sing I sing
Long live the king!
I sing I sing
Long life from the King!

"Fountains Of Praise"

Fountains of praise
Flow from my lips
Keep going water
To the end of my days

Bubble up from my heart
Living water so fresh
Rivers streams rushing rushing
Help me Lord, what’s my part?

Mountains we raze
Glory to God in the highest!
Flow from my lips
You fountains of praise

"Sweet Fragrant Perfume"

Sweet fragrant perfume
Lord I prepare for You
Pour Your oil o'er my head
I welcome You to my bed

Sweet fragrant perfume
Lord I prepare for You
If it takes six months
Or even a year, I'll wait

Mighty God
Prince of Peace
Everlasting Father

Sweet fragrant perfume
Lord I prepare for You

This is my song
For Your touch I earnestly long

Lead me Lord
Lead me in the dance
I give you my life, I give you my hand
Lead me in the dance

You take a step
I take a step
Dip me Lord, kiss me
You take a bow
I lift my hands
Lead me, Lord, in the dance
Lead me in the dance

Sweet fragrant perfume
Lord I prepare for You
Sweet fragrant perfume
Lord I prepare for You

"Helen Bested"

O had men gone to war
Over one so fair as thee
The battle’d’ve been short
They’d drop spear and sword
Instead to gaze at thee
On bended knee

"Cubs Fan And A Jesus Man"

Cubs fan and a Jesus man
Andre Dawson, God is awesome
Wrigley Field at the age of four
I asked God to save me
He gave me more

"Spirit Poem I"

The Lord is good
His mercy endures forever
But is that enough?
I don’t want His goodness
I don’t want His mercy
if I don’t get Him with them

You oh Lord make life worth living
You oh Lord make breath worth breathing
You oh Lord make grace worth faithing

You are so good
You are so good
You are so good
You are so good

Father God, Lord Almighty
none compares to your beauty
Your majesty outshines the stars
Your holiness is holy
Your love knows no bounds, defies dimensions
Blessings be unto Thee, O God
for You are holy, holy, holy


Jesus, the name above all names
no other even dares to compare
For you are holy
Your mercy endures forever
You are good
but I don’t want your mercy, your goodness
if I can’t have just You
just You
just You

Son of man
Unequaled by any other
Son of God
