Come my child My precious child Sit and listen as I tell you Wonders of my grace and love When your sad And when your weary When your heart doubts and fears Still come and sit with me Lift your eyes upon Upon the hill top Where the eagle swoops and dives Where the clouds drop falling rain Lift your eyes And see the flower Sitting there upon the hill Did I not make each tiny leaf Lift your eyes To the gentle shore Hear waves gently lapping As they break upon the shore Still your heart And still your mind Trust in me where ere you go And I will guide you through Through the mountains Through the valleys Past pain and failures and woes Past victory against your foes Look upon me Precios child See the love light in my eye See the cross upon the hill Stand before me Give me your sin My blood will cleanse and heal you And your life will be free and whole

Jesus sweet saviour

born to this world

born in a manger

born to be king

humble he came

and humble he stayed

sweet loving saviour

such care for this world

the shepherds came by

after following the star

leaving their sheep

alone in the fields

knowing they had found

a greater gift then gold

they knelt in his presence

and worshipped the king

the wise men left thier learning

and followed that wounderous star

bought him thier gifts

of love gold francinsence and myrrh

the angels sang in heaven above

for the Christ come down to earth

this child now so small and weak

has come to set the captives free

Great is your name

Great is your name

In all the earth

The heavens rejoice

And sing your praise


The angels are rejoicing

And we one earth are joining

To celebrate the King of kings

To celebrate the Lord of Lords


Rejoice and lift his name

Above every other name

IN the coming King

We can rejoice




The coming King

There’s a stillness In the mountains

There’s a calm across the sea

There’s a peace around the valleys

As creation waits expectantly


We’re waiting for our saviour

With saving grace and favour

To come and take us home to thee,

When we have won, the victory


Our eyes will lift to the sky above

And the trumpet blast will sound

We shall arise in a flick of the eye

As on a white horse our saviour will ride


The world will see he is the King

The creator of the earth

He has come again

New birth to bring


The final shout. The final call

Will shake the heavens to the core

The mountains high will quake and fall

A sight never seen or heard before


But we his people will have no fear

For we are, his children dear

And the bible tells us clear

Our saviours return is ever near


So tell me are you ready

To meet him in the sky

To give him all the glory

And live an eternity

The river of love

Posted by julies.poetry on September 4, 2012 at 3:55 AM Comments comments (0)

The river of love is flowing strong

Carving out roads

Of forgiveness and peace

Breaking up rejection and fear


Its winding its way round

The mountains of fear

Slowly chipping away

All the hate and abuse


But sometimes Gods love

Is a gently flowing stream

Bringing refreshment

To the weary and old


So let the mighty river

Wash over all you life

And drink once again

From the life flowing stream


His love never changes

The source stays the same

But the flow is changed to meet the need

As the spirit shows the way
