Peace Comes

Peace doesn’t come
Through restless waiting
It comes through abiding
Resting
In the hands of the One
Who made your heartbeat
It comes in the stillness
When fear is cut down
By faith’s mighty sword
When your worries
Turn to worship
When your longings become
A prayer
When you open your hands
For Him to empty or fill

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?

Prayer, Rhyme

For the Land

When will the shadows turn to light
When will Zion be a delight?

When will her children walk in peace
When will violence leave her streets
When will the tears cease?

On You we wait
Like watchmen pray
Oh, defend this city

By Your great Name

Please send from above
Oh, heavenly Dove

And heal the Land
That You love

Moses

Only the view from the mountain
The Jordan River between
The valley that stretched before him
Was the land of his dreams

Did his fatal sin sting him
And anger fill him with rage?
Or did he rest on top of Pisgah
At peace and unafraid

Knowing death was not his fate
Soon he would stand at Zion’s Gate
And walk in the golden sand
Of the eternal, heavenly Promise Land

Offering of Praise

Quiet my soul
When I’m afraid
Speak
Dear Yeshua
Your words
Of faith
Come calm
The storm
I’m tossed
By the waves
Whisper
Shalom
Bring me
Home
Yahweh
All I have
Is this offering
Of praise
Simple
And human
Yet touched
By Your grace
I will sing
For You
All my days

Prayer, Rhyme

Like a Miracle

May He speak the words
That none could say
And touch your heart
Like a miracle
Today

Wrapping you closer
Than anyone could
And healing your soul
Like you’ve dreamed
He would

May you find rest
In His embrace
Filled with joy
Righteousness & grace
May you dwell 
In His House
For all your days
