Never Cease

I sit a round and marvel how the Lord could love me so
He lavishes His grace on me and makes His blessings flow
I think about the times that I cursed His holy name
I ran from Him a million times and got so far away

In retrospective I can see He never left my side
Throughout those trying years He was protecting my hard life
He knew the plans He had for me though I had not a clue
He patiently stood by knowing one day I’d come through

Now I love to serve Him and lift His holy name
Daily I cry out to Him and give Him all my praise
I thank Him that He loved me when I did not love Him
I’ll never cease to offer up my worship unto Him

Your Great Love

I can’t describe the love you have for me
I can’t describe the mercy that sets me free
Your great love
Is more than enough
To satisfy my wildest dreams

I don’t believe the peace and joy I’ve found
I don’t believe your grace that does abound
Your great love
Is more than enough
To keep my feet on solid ground

Your great love. Your great love
You call to me with open arms
Your great love is more than enough
To always keep me safe from harm

I wonder when I’ll finally see your face
I wonder when I’ll join the angel’s praise
That great day
Is not far away
I’ll celebrate with hands upraised

Your great love. Your great love
You call to me with open arms
Your great love is more than enough
To always keep me safe from harm

Every storm that comes
Every trial that looms
Has to flee and run from your great love
Every turn I take
Every day I wake
You are there to guide with your great love

Your great love. Your great love
You call to me with open arms
Your great love is more than enough
To always keep me safe from harm

New Blog Coming Soon

Hello to all my fellow bloggers. Many of you know that I have been working on a book that is entitled The A.S.K. Principle. I blogged about this topic extensively a few months ago on my other blog site called God’s Maintenance Man. I am now going to bring it back on a separate blog. I’m doing this because the book is now in full swing and is at the editors at this time. The publisher that I’m working through also suggest that I blog about the book to enable everyone to be more informed.

I will be sharing with you thoughts behind the book, how the publishing is progressing and excerpts from the book. There will also be posts about prayer and answered prayers. I pray this will be a blessing to you and will build your faith as we go along.

I have no plan as to what days or how often I will be posting on this site. Most of the posts will probably be simple and not very long so I might update it more often. In any case I hope you will follow alonmn take a closer look at prayer and how it works in our lives.

I thank you for following this bloh.. it is a pleasure to be able to give you what God gives to me in poems. I only speak and write what He tells me to. So I can never tell you how long it will be between posts but the Psalmist blog will continue as is

Be blessed my friends

Beautiful Morn

Did you see the stars last night
Shining so bright
A beautiful sight

Did you hear the birds sweet song
Flying along
To see the dawn

What a beautiful morn has been given
From God a gift of love
What a glorious way to greet us
As we rise and look above

Have you lifted up your voice
Let us rejoice
Let us rejoice

Lift your eyes to se His face
Giving Him praise
Giving Him praise

What a beautiful morn has been given
From God a gift of love
What a glorious way to greet us
As we rise and look above

Wonder of wonders is all around
Beckoning us to see
How much He wants us to live life
Full of grace and peace

What a beautiful morn has been given
From God a gift of love
What a glorious way to greet us
As we rise and look above

Lord of All Creation

Forever I will praise you
I’ll lift my voice to you
I’ll sing your name out loud for all to hear
Every knee shall bow
And every tongue confess
That Jesus Christ is Lord

Lord of all creation
Lord of everything
I will lift my hands in praise
Jesus Lamb of God
Savior of the world
Holy, holy is your name

Earned Freedom

When he came home he was weary
Tired of the jungle’s heat
Tired of the sound of gun shots
Ringing in His ear

He walked onto this soil that day
Hoping a greeting awaits
All he got was shouting
No ceremony played

They gave themselves completely
Getting little in return
Except the pride of knowing
Our freedom they did earn.

Today we honor those who died
To keep our freedom strong
Let’s not forget those veterans
Who suffer their whole lives long

You Won’t Be Late

I wait for you
In the quiet of the night
I wait for you
In the morning’s early light
I wait for you
I wait for you

I wait for you
When my life is getting hard
I wait for you
When don’t feel like your child
I wait for you
I wait for you

Because I know that you are near me
I know you always hear me
When I pray out to you
Because I know that you will answer
I know you are my Savior
I will wait
You won’t be late

I wait for you
Your presence I desire
I wait for you
‘Til the daylight turns to night
I wait for you
I wait for you

You always show up right on time
You bring with you your love divine
The answer comes I know it’s mine
You never will be late

Because I know that you are near me
I know you always hear me
When I pray out to you
Because I know that you will answer
I know you are my Savior
I will wait
You won’t be late

Names Will Fall

Certain people come to mind at certain times of year
Basketball is king right now because the playoffs here
The names of certain players just ring inside our ear
We think of them as stars so big and bright

At other times it’s football, maybe baseball takes the stage
All through the year it seems we gawk at just another page
When our team loses some go wild and fall into a rage
Because their stars did not shine such a light

The news men called them famous and lift them up so high
I just wonder when we all will question them with why
Why should they be famous when in just a few years time
They soon will vanish and their names will fall

The famous one came long ago to take away our sin
Their is no name so mighty as the Son who dwells within
No one will ever reach the height of majesty like Him
Jesus the most famous one of all

One More of Me

Some days I get so busy
With all the words He gives
The Holy Spirit speaks to me
To let me know I’m His

When I seem to lag behind
In my chores around the house
i wish I had a doppleganger
Just to help me out

He could do the needed things
To make my living sweet
While I take time to listen close
And hear the Master speak

It’s then I’ll hear Him whisper
These little rhymes of mine
Then I will write them down for you
And keep them for all time
