The purpose of Birth

Tread boldly, treat boldly, as you walk here on earth.

 Tread boldly, and know He who gave mortal birth,

Has sent you to follow the words of his Son,

Tread boldly and do all that needs to be done.

For to conquer, to win you came to the earth.

To work out your salvation is the purpose of birth.

Reflections at Christmas
The children play with new gained toys,
The happy games that children play.
Whilst others sit and watch a show
To end this lovely Christmas day.
As for myself I sit and bonder,
Reflect, recall and often wonder
About His life, His humble birth,
A place called heaven; this place called earth.
About the songs I fail to sing, the joys I hide and keep within.
The words that stay unspoken, like seeds in shells unbroken.

Father the son you send to earth
To conquer sin and strife,
To drink the bitter cup alone,
To win eternal life.
To show all men the way back home,
To take us by the hand,
Who came and said: Come follow me!
To fair Emmanuel’s land.

Christmas is giving the best that we can, like our father his son gave unto men.
Send him to teach, show us the way, send him to lead us all home someday.
He gave him to live, gave him to die, He loved him, still gave him to you and I.
Let him be born in a manger stall, to nurture the meek, humble the tall.
He knew he would suffer; knew he would die, still on Christmas he gave him to you and I.

To bring us joy, to bring us peace, to grand to mortals’ heavens bliss.
Jesus Christ a babe was born, so long ago on Christmas morn.
To teach all men the truth, the way, to love each other day by day.
To show us by example, to share, to love and give,
Teach us by the way he walked, a better life to live.
It’s up to us to read, to pray, to fulfil each promise
God send to earth on Christmas day.

                                       Where you there

Bounteous earth, golden sand,
 Mighty Ocean - Rocky land.
Did you hear him say, let there be" Light”?
 As He made the Sun to shine?
 Ordained the dark of night?
As he fixed the planets orbits, when he set the seasons right,
 Were you there to watch him sow? the grass, the flower, the tree?
 Did you watch the first time ever?
The moon rose ov’er the sea?
 Did you see the clouds ablaze? in the sunset's glow?
Were you there to see God's hand, so very long ago?
 Did you see the first of creatures?
 Roaming o’er the land?
 Were you there to see him breathe? the first breath into man?
 Did you hear him as he taught? without faith man would fall?
 Tell me rocks, earth, sand and oceans,
 Did you witness all?
 thus, our world in endless motion?
Ever more moves on, generations come and go
In this our earthly home, Earth alone remains to see
   The threads that weave eternity.

(a Destiny song)

1) We come to earth, don’t really know from where?

Life may be fun or hard to bear.

:|There’s joy and grief along the way,

That’s how things are, that’s how they’ll stay|:

2) We walk in darkness or in light,

We live in peace or choose to fight.

:|Still life will give and life will take,

As destiny unfolds our fate |:

3) We may be poor, or man of fame,

The hour comes, we’ re all the same.

:|For comes to us that final sleep,

       Our mortal husk the earth will keep. |:

4) For as life comes, thus it will go,

Well them that lived, well them that know.

:|To trust in God, to grow to learn

        Time flies on wings that won’t return.

Judgment Day

When men are placed beneath God's
Microscope on Judgement day.
Where all will be revealed according to his way
When fears and tears, the longings of the heart
When page by page the book of life he reads
From end to start.
When we will stand in his revealing light
Beyond the turmoil of earth bitter blight.
It's then each trembling heard will surly know
How much we failed and strayed whilst here below.
It's then we may admit it's far too late.
To enter through that fair celestial gate,
Dear God of mercy help our eyes to see,
The kind of folks we really need to be,
Teach us obedience, grant us faith and hope
Help us to pass that final test
Beneath your microscope

The light of day

The light of day is fading, the candle’s flame burns low,

Far, far our feet have travelled, a long way still to go

Our goal seams oh so far away, none knows the hour the day

Our weary, wanderings through the world, drawn-out by long delay.

We know we’re here to conquer, to win a victor’s crown

God, father grand the faith, the strength

Seal us to be thein own.

                                         Evening thoughts

Moonlight on the windowsill

World so quiet, calm and still

As this day comes to a close

May all God’s children

Around the world

Find blessed sweet repose.
