“See Heartless Progress”

“See Heartless Progress”

The world sings its song:
To Hell with the children,
Protect all other living things,
Sacrifice all for our progress.

The future belongs to us,
We are the masters of our fate,
We are the engineers of our destiny,
We are the only gods of our lives.

Let peoples’ blood be shed,
Let it flow and cover the earth
As long as we get what we want.
So what if there’s blood on our hands?

Expediency is our method,
The ends justify the means.
Our goal will be achieved –
A Godless Paradise on Earth!

The gears of the progress machine
Are oiled with the blood of innocents.
Crimson streams flow everywhere,
The horizon is painted bloody red.

Heartless naturalistic pragmatism,
Foolish mechanistic functioning,
Cancerous conscienceless plans,
In a hurry on the highway to Hell.

They’re breathing murder
And spreading hatred,
They now sow to the wind and flesh,
They’ll reap the whirlwind and destruction.

They want a Godless utopia here
But they’ll only get Hell on Earth.
The greedy and ungodly fools
Will meet their sad end one day.

“If This Is All There Is”

“If This Is All There Is”

If this is all there is,
The here and the now
And nothing after
When we let out our last breath
Then we’re all wasting our time
So let’s waste it as we see fit,
Feed on lust, lies, sins, all of it.
What does it matter?
It doesn’t matter,
It never mattered.

If all we are is dust
And there is only matter
Then what’s the point of this
Period of time we call life?

If we all exist for a little time
And then disappear into nothing
Then do any of us really live
And if so, what’s the point of it?

Who has the answers to these questions?
Only a true fool would say
These questions don’t matter.

I’d like an answer that satisfies
My heart and my mind,
I don’t want excuses,
I want to hear the best answers
The so-called smartest and wisest can offer.

I don’t want theories that hold no weight,
I don’t want subjective nothingness,
I don’t want answers to hypothetical existence,
I want the real thing, it has to be something of substance,
I don’t want the superficial and hollow,
I want something true and something sure.

The world’s wisdom can’t answer these questions.
The worldings fail to give the answers,
All that the worldlings give amounts to
Hollow, shallow, superficial, insufficient,
Sad attempts by usaved souls to give
What they cannot because they reject
The Way and the Truth and Life,
So all they know is confusion, falsehood, and death.

“To Praise You, Lord”

We will sing to You
And praise Your holy name,
You’re the Way and Truth
And the Life of all, Lord.

God, forgive our sins,
Wash away our shame,
Fill us with Your Holy Spirit
And make us whole again.

Lead us where You will,
Be our strength to fight
The battles yet to come,
In it all be with us, Lord.

The Devil and Hell may rage,
Our bodies may grow weak
But You will be our strength
For You’ve overcome it all.

You are the Way,
You are the Truth,
You are the Life,
You are all we need!

“One Last Song”

“One Last Song”

O brother, o sister,
Sing one last song
With dry lips,
With parched tongue,
With aching bones,
With dying body
In the grip of deterioration
But with a living spirit
And heart’s determination.

Sing it on your deathbed,
Sing it at death’s door,
Sing it for you know
You will soon see the Lord.

Decay will surely do its work
Once your last breath is exhaled
But before then you can show
A final display of devotion
At the end of life’s journey;
The last sung words
Before leaving this world,
The last ounces of strength
Used to praise the living God.

Die in peace,
O brother, o sister,
With words of praise
On your lips.

Sing with all that is within you:
“Worthy are You, Jesus Christ,
The Lamb of God who was slain for us,
You died for the sins of the world,
You alone has paid the ransom,
You bought the Church with Your Blood,
You redeemed those enslaved,
You saved the lost ones
From sin and Hell and self.

Hallelujah, Creator be praised,
You are worthy of it all –
Glory and honor and power,
Wisdom and might and riches,
Love, lives, hearts and souls,
All to You, living and true God!”

“Things We Face”

“Things We Face”

Serenity – we just don’t know it.
Obscenity – we’re used to seeing it.
Imperfection – we all share it.
Desecration – we ruin what’s sacred.

Destroying what we fear –
We’re far from that point.
Being happy in every day –
It’s elusive, not our purpose.

No sense in merely existing
When we’re called to really live.
No sense in keeping score
If we’re the only ones playing.

It’s just too dark here now
To see anything around us.
We want out of this place –
The labyrinth of our failures.

Light reaches us and we turn away.
Oh, we used to welcome the sun
But now we wait for the moon,
Just to get through another night.

Long, dark roads and dead ends –
It’s so familiar and so tiring.
Oh, it’s just wearing us down,
We’re just existing now, it seems.

Things we face
In everyday life
Can build us up
Or tear us down.

We can all really live
And not merely exist.
We can breathe again,
The air so fresh and new.

If it’s in our grasp,
What’s stopping us
From getting it now
And embrace change?

“A Fool on the Wide Road”

“A Fool on the Wide Road”

Tell lies to get what you want,
Call the faithful “fools” for believing.
You think you have the truth in your hands,
You think unbelief will give your soul relief.

Speaking your words of hate again,
Blaspheming the name of the Holy One,
Scoffing at all that God has commanded,
You tread now the way of the lost fool.

Wide road, smooth path,
Feeling carefree as you go
Down the road you think is right
But it only leads to destruction.

Whatever your reason,
Whatever your goal,
This you should know:
As it stands, your end is Hell.

It’s so easy to believe in nothing
Beyond the visible, what’s sensed;
To believe what makes you feel good;
To believe what comforts your lost soul.

It’s so very easy but it does no good
For you only blind yourself to reality –
You ignore the perilous state of your soul;
You don’t want to believe there’s more
Than what you see and feel in this world.

“Glory To My God And Savior”

“Glory To My God And Savior”

My Lord, You have found me
When I was dead in my sins,
When my spirit was dead,
When my soul was lost, unsaved,
When my heart was made of stone,
When I didn’t care about You,
When I lived life for myself,
When I wanted You the least,
When I was indifferent to You,
When I was on my own way to Hell.

You found me as I was
Where I was living without You.
I didn’t know or believe then
That You gave me life and You sustained me
And every breath I wasted was a gift from You.
I held on for dear life every day
But I came to a dead end, no hope was left,
I knew something was missing,
I realized I wasn’t really living,
I admitted I was just existing,
I could find no answers within
And the worldlings had none either,
I thought nothing could be done
To be rid of my hopelessness.

I knew something was very wrong
But I didn’t look for You
But You looked for me
And You found me in my darkness,
You found me merely existing
But You kept showing mercy
And You kept sustaining me,
You gave me more days to live,
You showed me where to look
For the truth I’ve missed and ignored before,
Even though I didn’t know then
It was You working behind the scenes,
No events were mere chance and circumstance
It was all the work of Your hands.

You’ve brought me back from the dead,
You alone have given my life meaning,
You alone have given me life’s purpose,
You alone have forgiven all my sins,
You alone have washed me clean,
You’ve cleansed me from unrighteousness,
You have saved my soul,
You’ve brought my spirit to life,
You’ve given me a new heart,
You’ve given me a will to obey You,
You have made me whole,
You’ve done it all because You are love,
Because You love like no other.

God, You are incomparable,
You are my strength,
You are my hope,
You are my song,
You are the Way,
You are the Truth,
You are the Life,
You are my all in all.

You are my Maker and Creator,
You’re my Sustainer and Provider,
You are my Savior and Redeemer,
You are the King of kings,
You are the Lord of lords,
You are the one true and living God.

There is no one like You,
There is no other god,
None greater, none stronger,
No rival, no equal,
You alone reign now
And You’ll reign forevermore.
…….
Glory to God Alone
