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 ♫

The Cherry Tree

I find You by the cherry tree
When I’m sitting on the rock
Your Word in my hands
Bright sky above
Prayers rising
Whispered
Cried
And sung
The evening fades
To darker shades
And the stars appear
Up I gaze
To the One who made all I see
I find You by the cherry tree

Jerusalem Stone

Jerusalem stone
In evening light
Shines like gold
Amber bright
Chipped by war
Smoothed by time
Towering walls
Streets that wind
Narrow
Narrow
Into the heart of the city
Jerusalem stone
What stories do you keep?

Ancient ruins
Hidden beneath
Your stones cry out
They cry for peace
Singing and dancing
In the streets
No more fighting
No more fear
When Messiah Yeshua
Has drawn you near
Jerusalem stone
In eternal light
Will shine like gold
Forever bright
