Christmas Eve


Skies laden with stars so bright
See rooftops adorned with colored lights,

Carols chase the still winds,

And the bells are sounding

But behind this frosted window

It still is Christmas Eve.



Beneath the tree, presents galore,

Some to be opened at Christmas dawn

See the households rejoice and feast,

The world awaits the Saviour’s birth

A time to reflect, spread love and joy

It still is the eve before Christmas Day.



People crowd the streets and they cheer,

All come together, far and near.

Give heartily, sing merrily,

Love wholly, eat fully

The King is born in some hours

But for now it is still Christmas Eve.



Anticipation has chased the hours away

And the little ones croon in beds as they lay

The King of kings, He lies swathed in a manger

Meek and humble is our born Saviour.

Christmas is here with her precious gift.

Awesome God

Night is nigh,

I must say a prayer

I look up to the Most High,

He never fails to deliver.


In good times and bad times,

I will trust and obey

You have shown to mankind,

To salvation, you are the only way!


I will boast of you to the crowds,

They will hear of you Lord.

Even those with hearts so proud,

Eventually your glory they will accord


The people must know,

Of this Awesome God

Each day, new mercies bestowed,

Oh His name, I will forever uphold.


Night is nigh,

I must say a prayer.

Your ways I admire,

And I wish to bask in Thy favour.




The Recurrent Sinner


Joy overflowing,

A heart is calling,

Pleading a new start

The journey ever delightful

To welcome a lost one, now found

Praise at my feet,

I am welcomed volitionally

My Father and I ever so proud

That the Kingdom thrives

Hear the angels cheer so loud

Time is passing

The soul is lacking

Each day growing weary

And see how I have been shut out

Sorrow begrips me, my tears are endless

The slate full once more

My stay cut short, I’m let go

The journey dejects me

Lost is the same soul, savoring in sin,

My Father and I, see us weep

 Time has elapsed,

The soul is calling again

And I go running without restrain

To wipe that slate clean

Undeterred by the recurrent sinner
