Do not judge

 

Do not judge 
Or condemn,

But be kind,
And forgive.

For the mercy
We show

To all those
Who live

Is the measure
We’ll get, 

Not from those 
On life’s way,

But from God,
For eternity –

So, don’t
Delay!

Father,

There is nothing I can do
To impress you.

Neither do you need my help
In any way.

Yet still you love me,
And desire my love.

So I’ll keep on
Seeking you,

And  knocking at your door,
Until it opens.

Then I will see you,
Face to face, at last,

And know you fully,
Just as I am fully known.

Good and bad

 

God sees the good    
And bad in us
With never-failing
Clarity;

And, even when 
We make him sad, 
He loves us
Unconditionally.

Transformation

 

Water to wine;
Food for us all –

Bread becomes body;
Wine, precious blood.

Fresh, living water
Pours into each soul –

This is Christ’s way
Of expressing God’s love.

When we cannot see you

 

When we cannot see you
Face to face,
Nothing’s more important, Lord, 
Than faith. 

When we’re really struggling 
To cope,
Nothing’s more important, Lord, 
Than hope.

When we start to doubt 
You’re there, above, 
Nothing’s more important, Lord, 
Than love.

When its time for us 
To say Adieu, 
Nothing’s more important, Lord, 
Than you.
