A New Song ~

A new song,
God’s put in my heart
of how His mercy
came to do its part.

He took my sorrow,
turned it into hope
gave me the grace
each day to cope.

A new song,
I’m going to sing
so others to Him . . .
my grief might bring.

He’s given to me,
a brand new melody
and for my heartache
joy is now its remedy.

A new song,
God’s given to me
thru grief I’ve a glimpse
of eternal glee!

Psalm 40:3

“And he hath put
a new song in my mouth,
even praise unto our God:
many shall see it, and fear,
and shall trust in the Lord.”

We All Have A Past ~

We all have a past,
filled with painful things
we all cringe . . .
at the memories they bring.

We all need to find,
God’s favor and grace
we all need God’s mercy
so the past we can face.

We all have feelings,
of resentment and ill-will
we all wince . . .
at how others make us feel.

We all need to find,
God’s healing peace
we all need God’s mercy
so our pain He can release.

We all have suffered,
the heartache of rejection
we all recoil . . .
when the past we mention.

We all need to find,
God’s way to forgiveness
we all need God’s mercy
so we can be rid of bitterness.

We all have a past,
filled with painful things
we all need God’s mercy
and the grace that it brings!

Hebrews 4:16

“Let us therefore come boldly
unto the throne of grace,
that we may obtain mercy,
and find grace to help
in time of need.”

Along My Journey ~

along-my-journey-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, along my journey,
to get closer to You
there were lots of obstacles
I had to maneuver through.

You took me down the road,
of sorrow and grief
so I would learn to turn
to You for peace and relief.

You put me on the path,
of heartache and loss
so I would know the pain
of carrying my own cross.

You brought me to places,
I did not want to go
so that Your mercy
I’d truly come to know.

Lord, along my journey,
of hope and salvation
You always had for me
heaven as my destination!

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the thoughts
that I think toward you,
saith the Lord, thoughts
of peace, and not of evil,
to give you an expected end.”

Joy in Mourning ~

Tears by John Emery free photo #14718

Tonight, I’m purging my sorrow,
I am crying my last tear
I am not going to weep
for, I’ve nothing left to fear.

Thou there is darkness,
surrounding me tonight
tomorrow I will awake
to His gracious light.

Tonight, I’m getting rid of,
all the pain that I feel
the grief I’ve bottled up
so my tears God can heal.

My sobbing He has noted,
they’re in His book of grace
tomorrow night there won’t be
any tears running off my face.

Tonight, I’m purging my sorrow,
I’ll not be crying in the morning
I am not going to weep . . .
for, joy has replaced my mourning!

Psalm 30:5

“For his anger endureth but a moment;
in his favour is life:
weeping may endure for a night,
but joy cometh in the morning.”
