Bro & Sis Collaborated, Rhyme

Little Light

As you light the menorah
And say grace
Remember His light 
Shines on your face
Reflect this light
Everyday
In big and little ways

No need to fear
The darkest days
Just like the stars

Come out at night
You’ll shine so bright,
Little Light

The Mountainside

Many have traveled this twisting road
Up the mountainside
Some looked back
Far too soon
Lost the dream
Lost the view
Some persevered
Though the woods grew thick
They learned this lesson
And promise it’s true

Another turn
Or maybe two
And you’ll see
Hope
In front of you

Just Him

Quiet my soul
Rest a while
In His presence
Not a care
Just Him
Just the darkening sky
And the cicada’s song
The occasional breeze
And a firefly’s flicker
Just the peace
Of knowing that He’s here
In this small corner of the earth
Alone with me
And yet also everywhere else
At the same time
Just the comfort
Of having no words
Because sometimes words can’t speak
♫ What a Friend We Have in Jesus ♫

10 Years

In 10 years it’ll make sense
What I should’ve seen
Should’ve done
Should’ve known
That You were working
Through everything
For Your glory
In 10 years Your love will be sweeter
Your grace even deeper
As it’s carried me
Sanctified me
Changed me
In 10 years I’ll have more “thank Yous”
More reasons to trust You
More tears, more laughs
More hard lessons learned
More blessed-assurance
I’ll be closer to eternity
Closer to You
But if 10 years doesn’t come
And all I have is today
Did I live it right?
Am I ready
To step over the Jordan
To the New Jerusalem?
Am I ready to die
Am I ready to live
Today

Infinite

If You created the infinite sky
Know each star by name
Measured the oceans
In the palm of Your hand

If mountains can be moved
And cast in the sea
By faith as small
As a mustard seed

If You are as big
As we can’t even dream
Then why in the world
Do I worry?
