A man content to go to heaven alone will never go to heaven.

Time Alone Will Tell

I woke up dead this morning,
at least I thought I was.
Death isn't like I imagined it
and nothing like the world of Oz.

It's misty, quiet, and lacking substance,
but there's other people here.
We're kind of floating about in a vacuum,
as though waiting to disappear.

Sure enough some are slowly fading
whilst others are falling from the mist.
Do they really go somewhere different,
or do they both cease to exist?

Even here the same old questions get asked,
is there really a heaven and hell,
am I really floating about or just dreaming?
Time alone will tell.

You Will Never Be Alone

You will never be alone,
God is always there.
You will never be alone,
With God there is no despair.

You will never be alone,
Just forget about your sin.
You will never be alone,
You are God’s own kin.

You will never be alone,
Life is not impossible.
You will never be alone,
You must live to the full.

You will never be alone,
Even though it may seem hard.
You will never be alone,
Although Satan may bombard.

You Will Never Be Able To Beat The Old Man (Improvisation 09 05 2009)

You will never be able to beat me
At anything I will beat you until
I am too old to win with what I know
when you feel that you are able
to beat me you will lose because
someone else will know that you
will never be able to beat me but
that you take advantage of your
old man be smart now and calm
down and take your medicine and
go on home tonight and get ready
early to bed and dream your dreams
and hope that one day will be your
day to prescribe a young man’s medicine.

She Will Never Walk Alone

She will never walk alone
She has God on her life
She will never walk alone
God is on her side
She will never walk alone
Because God is always watching out for her
She will never walk alone
Because she has a friend that is God
She will never walk alone
She has someone who loves her and that someone is God
She will never walk alone
Because God is a good friend of her
She will never walk alone
She will always have someone to keep her company
And that someone is God
She will never walk alone

Good Ambition

Ive spent eleven months and five days loving you
And all these times Ive spent forgiving you
I dont want to be hurt
I dont want to be hurt
I dont want to be hurt
Not any more
Im a man with a good ambition
And I will never let you drag me down
You better go home and leave me alone
Im a man with a good ambition
And I will never let you drag me down
So baby go home
And leave me alone
Ive got a good, good, good ambition
Tell you its a good, good, good ambition
Ive got a good, good, good ambition
Tell you its a good, good, good ambition
Ive got a good, good, good ambition
Tell you its a good, good, good ambition

With You I Will Never Be Alone

When the clouds have rolled in, on my sunny day
I can always count on you, to push them away
I can lean on you and you will still stay strong
And find that light, when all the hope has gone

You lift me up
Higher then i've ever been
You give me love
More love then i've ever seen
You give me courage
Courage when all my faith is gone
With you
I will never be alone

Before i sleep at night, i always think of you
You're in my dreams the whole night too
And when i wake, you're on my mind again
You're my very best friend

You lift me up
Higher then i've ever been
You give me love
More love then i've ever seen
You give me courage
Courage when all my faith is gone
With you
I will never be alone

I really mean it
With you i will never be alone

A Mere Man

i am nothing but a mere man, with mere thoughts
but with a love and song so deep in my heart
that it touches every part, every part of my total being.
this is what my friends and family are seeing.

i look at you, and every feature of you face
stays in my mind.
the sparkle in your eyes, the tenderness of your lips
your soft brown hair, and cute little nose
shows the beauty of a perfect pose.

i am but a mere man, and you as my companion
we'll walk hand in hand.
absorbing all of the LORDS wonders.
the blue skies, the stars at night
the clouds, the grass, the trees
and the tiny honeybees.

the oceans, rivers, and the streams
all of which can be seen.
billions of wonders on this earth
the most important one is-'giving birth'.
it does not matter if it's human
animal, plant or fowl,
its beauty is world reknown.

a mere man am i
but the LORDS beauties will never die.

You Got The Wrong Man

Your eyes say that you've been hurt before
And you can't take the heartache anymore
You think I'll do what he's done to you
Break your trust and be untrue
But baby this is me you're talkin' to
You got the wrong man, it's not me
A case of mistaken identity
I didn't break your heart you see
What can I do to make you understand
You got the wrong man
I know you think that love will never last
And you see your future like the past
You don't want to make the same mistake
You think that I'm one more to make
But baby, I'm not him for goodness sake
You got the wrong man, it's not me
A case of mistaken identity
I didn't break your heart you see
What can I do to make you understand
You got the wrong man
You think I'll do what he's done to you
Break your trust and be untrue
But baby this is me you're talkin' to
You got the wrong man, it's not me
A case of mistaken identity
I didn't break your heart you see
What can I do to make you understand
You got the wrong man

But Myself

I might not do any better
But I wont do any worst
I will never die without love
But I will die because of thirst
I will never stop looking for answers
And that road I will always search
I know that I will never be last
And before many I have been first.
I will never be a rich man
And I swear to you I will never be poor
I will never start a fight with any man
But I am not afraid to enter into a war
I will never ask for sympathy or money
But also on no one will I shut my door
I might date many different women
But I will never make woman a whore.
I might one day might have nothing
But then I will always have my pride
I will always rather joke and laugh
Never will I cause anyone to cry
I am not afraid to ever walk alone
Or I don’t care who walks at my side
I might tell many different stories
But no story I tell will ever be a lie.
I will never asked for handouts
As what I have I have earned
I might not be the smartest man around
But from life many lessons I have learned
I might not worry about our world today
But of peoples life I am concerned
I might not go to church as I should
But I know that I will never burn.
I do not care to walk alone
And I don’t care to be with anyone else
I don’t care if you have no money at all
And I don’t care to hear of your wealth
I might not be there when no one is near
But I will be there if you need my help
I am not afraid or ashamed to look in any mirror
As always I will be no-one, but myself

Instead of solid accomplishments, the man pursues pleasures and self-gratification. He will never achieve anything so long as he is surrounded by dissipating temptations.

Unwritten Soul

Unwritten soul
Is my kind of man
Or is he a woman
Unwritten will never tell

When i'm feeling down
Unable to stop the frown
I think of unwritten
And the smiles
The soul gave to me

I'm your friend
I'm your brother
I will always respect you
For the smiles
And the poetry
You gave to me

I send this
With my love my friend
To thank you for the smile

Who Is There Left to Remember?

WHO IS THERE LEFT TO REMEMBER?

Who is there left to remember?
My parents, my brother, all my aunts and uncles gone-
My sister in another world.

In our imagination and prayers
The sky opens and souls enter
Singing praise
Our loved ones are saved forever.

But on the ground
Where we are now
All that they have been-

Who is there left to remember
The lives the world we had?

I alone am left to remember
And I alone will never remember enough.

My Love

My love: that rejoiced in your being
And lit up when darkness fell
My love: that knew your weaknesses
And unleashed the never fading grace
My love: that preserved your soul
When in the Garden of Eden,
Death fell upon humanity.
My love; that founded King David’s kingdom,
And a seed was planted, hope was established
My love; that wiped away Egypt
And swept away the wrath of slavery
That the seed of Abraham might be free.
My love; that held Israel as an infant
And dwelt with evil like fading smoke
My love; that upholds the sun by day
And wakes the moon and stars by night
My love; that restored eternity
And introduced salvation for humanity
My love; that bore the passion
And paid the ransom that no man can fathom…
My love for you will never end!

The Soldier's Grave

Twas long ago, in the summer-time,
On a day as sad as this,
That I laid my babe in its father's arms,
And he gave it his farewell kiss;
When the army sail'd from the English shores
In a mist of sun and rain,
To the vine-clad hills and citadels
And the olive groves of Spain.

I set my face to the balmy south,
And listen'd, intent and dumb,
As though a cry from the battle-grounds
On the fragrant wind might come.
I yearn'd for a gleam of the red camp fires
Which burn'd through the watchful nights,
For the shine of the bayonets that clash'd one day
On the dread Albuera heights.

Ah me! And my face cannot turn away,
Though the ashes are on my brow,—
Though the news of the battle came once for all,
And there's nothing to watch for now!
Though 'tis further away than that far south land
I must look for my dear man's face,—
Though I know he will never come home again
To the chair in the old house-place!

Far, far away is mirth withdrawn

Far, far away is mirth withdrawn
'Tis three long hours before the morn
And I watch lonely, drearily -
So come thou shade commune with me

Deserted one ! thy corpse lies cold
And mingled with a foreign mould -
Year after year the grass grows green
Above the dust where thou hast been.

I will not name thy blighted name
Tarnished by unforgotton shame
Though not because my bosom torn
Joins the mad world in all its scorn -

Thy phantom face is dark with woe
Tears have left ghastly traces there,
Those ceaseless tears ! I wish their flow
Could quench thy wild despair.

They deluge my heart like the rain
On cursed Gomorrah's howling plain -
Yet when I hear thy foes deride
I must cling closely to thy side -

Our mutual foes - they will not rest
From trampling on thy buried breast -
Glutting there hatred with the doom
They picture thine, beyond the tomb -

But God is not like human kind
Man cannot read the Almighty mind
Vengeance will never tortue they
Nor hunt thy soul eternally

Then do not in this night of grief
This time of over whelming fear
O do not think that God can leave
Forget, forsake, refuse to hear ! -

What have I dreamt ? He lies asleep
With whom my heart would vainly weep
He rests - and I endure the woe
That left his spirit long ago -

Far, Far Away Is Mirth Withdrawn

Far, far away is mirth withdrawn
'Tis three long hours before the morn
And I watch lonely, drearily
So come thou shade commune with me

Deserted one ! thy corpse lies cold
And mingled with a foreign mould
Year after year the grass grows green
Above the dust where thou hast been.

Tarnished by unforgotton shame
Though not because my bosom torn
Joins the mad world in all its scorn.

Thy phantom face is dark with woe

From trampling on thy buried breast
Glutting there hatred with the doom

But God is not like human kind

That left his spirit long ago.

Spending Time With God

You have some time alone my friend, a time alone you can spend,
A time of quiet contemplation, alone with the God of your salvation.
Time between just the two of you, to speak of things you need to do,
Things in life that must be done, where you need to lean on the Son.

You are never alone anyway, as God is with you throughout the day,
Christ is there if you need to talk, and goes with you when you walk.
You can talk with God anytime, to share what may be on your mind,
Even talk to Him about tomorrow, sharing both your joy and sorrow.

When you come to plan your day, God will guide you along the way,
Even before you begin your task, He knows what your heart will ask.
Use the time to remember too, the things that God has done for you,
When you knew not what to do, God would always see you through.

For nobody truly cares for you, in the way which God and Jesus do.
Jesus Christ shall intercede for us, when in Him we place our trust,
With God the Father Jesus will sit, as Christ becomes our advocate.
As believers call upon the Father, for God and Christ it is no bother.

God calls us to the Throne of Grace, so that we can seek His face,
All are welcomed to the Throne, who know Christ as their very own.
So when you get some time alone, seek The Lord upon His Throne,
And you will find the time you spend, with God alone will never end.

Standards

Following the standards of this world, as your work day is unfurled,
May be the normal thing you do, as you see your schedule through,
But, Believers need to be aware, of standards that are set out there,
The standards that deny our Lord, and as moral issues are ignored.

Their standards may get jobs done, but, do nothing for God’s Son,
To help believers live their daily life, above all of their immoral strife.
With our standards set much higher, pleasing The Lord is our desire,
We desire to live and honor Him, while in this world plagued with sin.

Our standard is an Everlasting One, authorized by God’s Only Son,
God’s standard is carved in stone, put in place from God’s Throne.
A standard of unalterable ways, is needed for these changing days.
Standards followed by the wise, as the world chooses compromise.

This standard is the choice of those, who the Lord above has chose,
To shine His light in every nation, to lead all men to God’s Salvation.
God’s standard simply cannot waver, built upon our Blessed Savior,
Before the foundation of this world, it’s the only one we’re to herald.

The Word of God will be our source, as we chart our earthly course,
For The Word alone is foundational, as men seek to live God’s Will.
As the standards set forth by men, by The Lord will be condemned,
But God’s standard is eternal friend, as His will alone will never end.
