Not Forgotten

Let’s pause to remember
Let’s acknowledge what is true

For every life is precious
A gift from above
Let’s not forget
Let’s stand for honesty
For love
For freedom
For those who have no voice
For the unborn
For the slave
For the unknown and ignored
Let’s stand for hope
For justice
For grace
Let’s walk humbly
Bravely
Toward the God of our redemption
Toward the hope of tomorrow
Let’s not forget
Let’s change the future

Faith, Hope, & Love

Faith is like breathing
The fresh open air
It’s reality
It’s life
Hope is like spring
It never fails to come
And remind us that 
Winter doesn’t last forever
Summer is just around the corner
So keep on breathing
Faith will lead you
And never forget to stop
And smell the spring flowers
That blossom for a moment
But His words last forever
And His love w
ill carry us
Through the dark days
Bringing us joy
Like sun in the rain

Rhyme

Alive

How many prayers
Have been prayed for you?
And now you feel them
Breaking through

How many years
Have you lived in fear?
Hiding the hurt
Ignoring the tears
Your heart
Lost

In a deep
Dark cave
Depression keeping
You in your grave
Until you met
The Light of day
And He washed your anger
All away
Forgiveness called you
By your name
Now you stand
Forever
Changed
Who could ever be the same?
After knowing
This healing rain
Who could question
The power of grace?
When a heart
Has been cleansed
Of all its shame

Now you are alive.
