You will find me there

Posted by appolus on May 19, 2017

You’ll find me neath the throne
When I’m all alone
And the pain’s too much to bear
You will find me there

You’ll find me neath the cross
A place of bleeding loss
When I’m on my knees in prayer
You will find me there

You’ll find me on my knees
A place of desperate pleas
When I’m wounded in a snare
You will find me there

You’ll find me at His feet
When life has forced me to retreat
When I’m hurt and in despair
You will find me there

You’ll find me on higher ground
When the darkness is all around
And to that darkness I do declare
You will find me there

For He will lift me up
The one who drank the cup
I will meet Him in the air
And you will find me there

You’ll find me in His glory
And that shall be my story
For His glory’s everywhere
And you will find me there!!

Healing the broken heart

Posted by appolus on May 12, 2017

To the father that I never had
Long ago when I was just a lad
A word of comfort, perhaps a tender touch
Would that have really been too much?

You could have stopped the falling rain
Falling on a heart so full of pain
But you were the dark cloud up above
And the rain that fell was devoid of any love

To rob a child of what he really needs
Is the sowing of some future loveless seeds
That will fail to grow and die there in the ground
A darkened place where there’s no joyful sound

Can someone give what they have never known?
Can a field give fruit that itself was never sown?
Can the loveless child find life among the dead?
Or shall he ever walk the barren road instead?

Where can the loveless man find what he needs
Who will plough these hearts and plant these seeds
The Father who from above sent down His Son
Will fall like rain and now the work’s begun

This seed alone is the answer from above
Tis Christ the King, it is the Father’s love
To every broken heart and orphaned child
That was lost and all alone and growing wild

You have a heavenly Father, whose arms are opened wide
He plants His precious seed and He plants it deep inside
And the heart that once was hard and could not feel
Begins to beat anew as it begins to heal.

God of the valley

Posted by appolus on April 24, 2017

It does not really count
If you think its gonna end
The valleys not a valley
If you think you can ascend

When you’re burning in the fire
And all around is darkness
And from the very depths of you
You silently scream…Jesus!

Have you cried that name into the night
When everything has failed
You’re lost and there’s no way ahead
And all your world has been derailed

When you’ve crawled the deepest valley
Where the arrows never stop
Only then are you truly ready
To ascend the celestial mountain-top

The glory of the risen King
Belongs to those who cry to Him
“Even if I burn here in this fire,
my immortal soul will come up higher”

The saint whose traveled down this road
Whom the enemy will often strike
Discovers something other-worldly
The mountain and valley are both alike

On the very highest mountain-top
Or in the deepest valley low
The day and the night are both alike
For He is with me everywhere I go.

Touching the Father’s heart

Posted by appolus on April 7, 2017

How is it I could be so lost
In a very familiar place
How can my heart turn suddenly cold
Now my world’s a smaller place

Chorus

I was born to soar into the skies
I was born to look into your eyes
Reaching out to be a part
Of a world, touching the Father’s heart

Verse 2

How can I stay here in this place
With its darkness all around
My heart longs to hear your voice again
Just to hear a heav’ly sound

Verse 3

I can run in, to my high tower
But I know I cannot stay
Im called to come back into the light
Into the light of a brand new day

Verse 4

So if you have run, you’ve run away
From your life with all its pain
It’s time to come back,come back to him
Time to fall in love again.

A vision of heavenly worship

Posted by appolus on February 14, 2017

I wrote this today trying to describe a vision I once had.

I saw there, Golden wheat fields
Resplendent in the sun
And as the Spirit moved on them
They seemed to move as one

The fields went on forever
As far as the eye could see
They rolled like the waves of the ocean wide
Upon a golden sea

But as I looked yet closer
These stocks of wheat were saints
They worshiped unashamedly
For there were no restraints

The wind of the Spirit blew on them
And there they moved as one
Giving glory to the King of Kings
Rejoicing in the Son

They sang the song of Moses there
And glory to the Lamb
Upon a swaying glassy sea
And in that sea I swam

This sea it was eternal
It gathered round the throne
And each and every one of us
Would never be alone

Now the wheat fields sway majestically
Moving gently in the breeze
And they will sway forevermore
Like the waves of eternal seas

Now We were one as He is one
We were one in the Spirit true
And it all began when we were born
When we were born anew

Chorus

So we’ll sing the song of Moses there
And glorify the Lamb
We’ll worship and adore the King
For He is the great I am

I am whole yet broken

Posted by appolus on February 7, 2017

I am whole
Yet I am broken
And the love of the Lord
Is no mere token
He is light and He is love
He’s my all in all and He’s enough

I was down
You raised me up
I was lost and empty
You came and filled my cup
You’re my light and you’re my love
You’re my all in all and you’re enough

I was chained
You set me free
I had suffered defeat
Yet you gave me victory
You’re my light and you’re my love
You’re my all in all and you’re enough

I was broken
You made me whole
I was full of sin
And you came and saved my soul
You’re my light and you’re my love
You’re my all in all and you’re enough

So take my heart
That once was broken
And let me show the world
You’re no mere token
You’re their light and you’re their love
You’re their all in all and you’re enough

So here’s my heart
Whole before you’re throne
It once was lost
Now shall never be alone
You’re my light and you’re my love
You’re my all in all and you’re enough

Precious is the day. (a word to someone today)

Posted by appolus on February 1, 2017

Precious is the day
You pulled me in from stormy seas
Precious is the way
You compelled me down upon my knees

Your love was a holy lifeline
For me to take a hold
Your mercy spoke straight to my heart
The greatest story every told

Your forgiveness was like manna
It was food to a starving man
You gave me hope to journey on
Through my many tears I saw your plan

It was a plan to prosper me
And escape from the miry clay
To put my feet on solid ground
To walk with you each day

You gave me living waters
When I was dying in the sand
You cried aloud with all your might
To reach up and take your hand

Lift up your eyes oh child of mine
And see the light from up above
Walk on my child through wind and rain
For you are covered by my love

So precious is the day
When first our hearts did meet
And precious is the saint
Who is found here at my feet

The time is coming very soon
So stand together side by side
And glorify the Living God
And let the Bridegroom take His bride.

A warning to a nation that calls itself Christian

Posted by appolus on January 22, 2017

Can we all just lay our guns down
Can you stop, even for a moment, and see whats all around
Hatred and bitterness, this land is in despair
There is something in the atmosphere, there is something in the air

Brother against brother, our hearts should be as one
If only for a moment, stop and see what has begun
Will you wrap yourself in glory, in impenetrable light
Or shall we march together, hand in hand, into the darkest night

Imagine a world where we all just get along
Now imagine a world that has forever lost its song
Our children grow in darkness, we teach them how to fight
With every passing day they slowly lose their sight

Oh Adam wont you weep for your children in despair
And Eve how can you sleep when theirs hatred everywhere
Can’t we simply lay our guns down and learn how to forgive
For only in the light of love can this world truly live

In the name of Jesus I call on you this day
The ruler of the darkness says there’s no time left to play
He is coming in his fury, he is coming for mankind
The dark horse it is riding with the pale horse right behind

Tis time to love each other, greet each other with a kiss
Or we shall meet on the battle-field, on the edge of the abyss
Inflamed with indignant righteousness and blind to one another
If we refuse to love then it is brother against brother

The diary of my life.

Posted by appolus on January 19, 2017

Below are the poems I wrote last year stating with January and moving forward. Some people have a diary, my diary is the poems that I write.

Kissed by Justice and Mercy

Justice and mercy have kissed
And my heart was broken and healed
Your love which I so long dismissed
Now covers forever and seals

Oh Lord of heaven above
And of earth and sky and sea
How I rest in the warmth of your love
Once was shackled but now I am free

Your love and truth are my guiding light
And your mercy never comes to an end
Your fire and glory light up the night
While you fall down from the heavens you rend

Fill up the valley my glorious King
Flood the whole earth with joy and with praise
Look kindly upon the sacrifice I bring
That I may follow you all of my days

Oh justice take the hand of mercy
That glory may dwell in our land
IN the shadow of victorious Calvary
Where sin lost its final last stand!

My First Love

We have only one life to live
We have only so much to give
So let’s give it sacrificially
That we may live life beautifully

Far from the grasping crowd
I’m running from all that is loud
Just want to walk with the sun and the breeze
Hands silently raised and falling to my knees

I just want to hear the rain fall
See the birds fly and listen to them call
Maybe see a deer around the bend
Talk about my passion with a friend

I see the sun in the sky-high above
As I walk back towards my first love
I’m losing everything that has weighed me down
So I can run to Him at His feet to be found.

I’m traveling light on my journey now
My heart has been furrowed by the plow
I’ve cried tears and raged at the moon
But now it’s time to walk for my Master’s coming soon.

Nothing else matters only He
Coming back to the one who set me free
My heart now longs for just one touch
To hear Him whisper in my ear would be so much

To the glory and the King of majesty
Loving and living with all simplicity
An ear to hear and a heart to sing
The praises of His glory,my risen King.

A Rising Crimson Tide

There is a rising Crimson tide
That burns inside of me
Tis from my wounded Master’s side
Which flows from Calvary

This fire was set when I met Him
So very long ago
And though the years are passing me
This fire will always flow

It rises and consumes my heart
This heart He gave to me
This fire consumes my very soul
Which flows from Calvary

And from His nail pierced hands it flows
And trickles down on me
Who kneels below this Crimson flow
The cross of Calvary

And I am raised up by the tide
Of Crimson’s glorious fire
His blood it cleanses all of me
And raises me up higher

It take me all the way to heaven
To stand before His throne
I lift my hands and worship Him
For me His Blood atoned.

Consumed by a fire of molten Love
That flowed on me from up above
Igniting every part of me
Thank God in Christ for Calvary

Just To Be Found In You

Can you hear the beat of my heart
And my tears as they fall to the floor
And the cry that comes from the depths of my heart
Oh Lord wont you open up the door?

How I long for the tabernacle of your presence
Your glorious majesty that’s there to be found
How my heart longs to be where you are
In the midst of your glory that’s all around

It can be a dry and dusty narrow path
Surrounded by desert sand
I thank you Lord for the moments in time
When I simply take hold of your hand.

These moments of glory then down comes the rain
Glory and majesty and agonizing pain
Bring on the pain and let the rain fall
As for me and mine we shall follow the call

Lord you know the beginning from the end
And in spite of myself you call me your friend
So the thunders shall roar and the mountains shall fall
No matter the cost I am gonna stand tall

For you took what was dead and wasting away
You raised me to heaven and taught me to pray
So as long as I live and the sky above is blue
I’ll walk through the fires just to be found in you.

God Is Found

God is found by the hungry heart
Not by the inquiring mind
God is found by those who thirst
He quenches that thirst you will find

God is found in the longing and the aching
He is found by those who seek
He is found in the depths of the needy heart
By the humble, the lowly the meek

God is an anchor for the soul adrift
He is the roots of the tree in a storm
He is the light that shines in the midst of the dark
In winter His fire keeps us warm

He is a warm embrace to the longing heart
He is our peace when all breaks down
He is our sanity in the midst of a mad mad world
He is the head that wears the crown

Come unto me ye broken and contrite
All you who dwell in an endless night
Find in Me an open door to heaven
In me you’ll be fed and truly forgiven

Subdued By Majesty

Have you been subdued by the Majesty?
Has your head hung low in the glory?
Has your darkness been shattered by the light from up above?
Have you found yourself adrift in an ocean of love?

Oh God in heaven rend the skies and come down
May I fall to my knees with your glory all around
May the waters rise from the tears of a million saints
Let us enter into this place where no one ever faints

Brighter than the light of a thousand suns
Where time has no place and eternity’s just begun
Where every part of me is one with every part of you
And the glory falls and covers me like the morning dew

I am whole and complete, here before the mercy-seat
I am refreshed and restored where my mercies are replete
Oh God in heaven take me to this place
Where I forever look unto your face

Tears of joy and wholeness rise in me
Waters from the saints that are deeper than the sea
Only in this place do I truly belong
Forever singing heaven’s Holy song

Suddenly I am back from whence I came
But this I know, I shall never be the same
And the memory of His presence lingers on
My heart is full, tis food to dwell upon

This hunger and this thirst is part of me
Longing to be adrift once more, in that eternal sea
Oh take me to that place that is my home
Where I shall dwell eternally before thy throne

In The Midst of it All

Oh glorious fourth man in the flame
Stand with Him and never be the same
Let the world gaze on and wonder at it all
Standing firm in the furnace, standing tall

There is gold in this refiners fire
In the world you’d be covered by the muck and the mire
Yet in this place of testing and refining
There is one like the Son of God gloriously shining

Do not fear when the enemy knocks upon your door
Nor in the darkened den when you hear the lion roar
The Son of God is coming with lightning in His hand
By His power and by His grace you shall forever stand

So stand amidst the flames and know you shall not fall
Stand upon the rising storm and hear the Master call
Lift your eyes and fix your gaze on Christ and Him alone
Rise up above all earthly fears and stand before His throne

A place where every storm is stilled
A place where every saint is filled
A place that casts out every fear
A place where Jesus Christ is near.

A Fatherless Child

I was a fatherless child
A crushed and rebellious heart growing wild
Sinking deeper with abandon into the miry clay
Living for the moment, just living for the day

I could care less if I lived or if I died
No tears would fall from my heavy heart, even if I tried
A heart locked away and hidden behind iron bars
If you could see what He could see then you would see my scars

At the end of my road I was all used up and I was diminished
Then I heard these words of life ” oh Father it is finished.”
And light fell down from up above and the darkness fell away
The Lord had come to dwell in me and that is where He’d stay

My crushed and broken heart He healed
My eternal destiny was sealed
My sins were all forgiven on the day He set me free
He opened up the door of hell with His eternal key

My Lord and God He came to me and He has made me whole
He revived my heart and restored to me all that the locust stole
Now what the Lord has done for me, He can do for you
He can refresh the broken heart in you just like the morning dew

Lift up your eyes oh captive son
For your enemy is on the run
He has delivered you from slavery
He has broken chains and set you free

Children Of Liberty.

I am my Father’s son and together today we are one
I am my Father’s son and together today we are one

With then high praises of my Father
And the glory of His Son
And the power of His Holy Spirit
We shall fight till the fight is done

I am a daughter of the King
It’s to Him I raise my voice and sing
Through the power of the Spirit
And the Blood of Christ my Lord
I’ll lift my voice in victory
And then I’ll swing my sword

We are sons and daughters of blessed liberty
We shall fight and die for the one who set us free
And with the high praises of our Father
And the glory of Christ His Holy Son
We shall run this race and we shall not faint
We shall run this race till this race is done.

I Long To Be Away

I have flown in heavenly places
Yet still confined to earthly spaces
There’s a part of me that has touched the skies
And with each touch another part dies

Two forces yet only one eternal part
One love that has forever filled my heart
The glory of the crimson tide forever changing me
Lifts me up then takes me down into the glassy sea

I stand enshrined in this mortal coat
Yet the Love of God keeps me afloat
Adrift and carried by the crimson tide
The Bridegroom ever beckons home the bride

In this world but surely not a part
To another Kingdom belongs my longing heart
This other Kingdom burns inside of me
As it carries me into the glassy sea

As I approach the glory to be found
I find myself once more on Holy ground
A place where I will find eternity
A place that lies in the midst of the glassy sea

Oh longing heart with wings you must take flight
And lift me from perpetual fleshly night
And deliver me to where my Saviour reigns
A place where at my feet lies broken chains

The Silent Depths of His Wonder

I am lost in the silent depths
Of Your secret wonders
Like gazing at the universe
And the sky above that thunders

Who could plummet the depths
Of a peace beyond all measure
Who could even begin to count
What’s amassed in Your heavenly treasure

Who could soar the heavenly heights
Of the glory that’s all yours
Who could begin to guess the strength
Of your power that simply endures

I can plummet all of Your depths
And soar to the heavenly heights
I can walk by the strength of Your arm
That takes me through the darkest nights

Your heavenly treasures supply all my need
They simply never come to an end
There is peace and joy and boundless hope
From my Lord, my Master and my friend.

Healing The Broken

The beauty of the forest
Hides the broken tree
The wonder of your Blood
Covers all of me

The glory of your love
Covers all my sin
It brings a wealth of healing
And beauty deep within

You heal the brokenhearted
And set the captive free
You allowed you’re broken Body
To hang broken on a tree

You’re love is all-consuming
You wipe away all tears
It follows and it leads me
Down through all the years

No matter where I run to
I always find you there
On the highest rugged mountaintop
Or in the valley of despair

You surround me with your beauty
And impenetrable light
You walk with me throughout the day
And every darkened night

Where could I flee from your presence
Over land or hill or sea?
The wonder of our mighty God
Is that He dwells in me

Thank-you for your glory
And sharing it with me
You came and touched this captive
And forever set me free

Footsteps In The Snow

Sometimes you just want to walk into the light
And leave the shadows far behind
Tis cold when the wind is blowing
Especially when it’s blowing through your mind

When the center of my soul is cold and weary
And the snow is falling in my heart
I turn my face towards the sun
The one who saved me from the start

And with heavy feet and the weight of the world
I stumble forward for there’s no going back
One step at a time, day by day
Following footsteps in the snow, in the dark

A path before me, footsteps in the snow
One step in each footprint is the way I must go
One day at a time ever closer to thee
No longer you and I but forever we

Tis your footsteps in the snow
That I follow each day
They wind their way through the valley
Ever leading the way

Thank you for the sun
When in my heart the snow falls
Thank you for your voice
Over the wind it still calls

I’ll follow the path that you tread for me
Despite the darkness the path I can see
And even when the snow is heavily falling
Through the wind and the rain I hear my Lord calling

So your word is my lamp and your voice leads the way
And the path that you walked guides me every day
Through the wind and the rain, the snow and the storm
In a very cold world your love keeps me warm

Face to Face With The Cross.

When I have suffered great loss
I come face to face with the cross
Will I get down on my knees and pray
Or shall I turn and walk away?

Each day as I walk through this life
And face troubles and heartaches and strife
When the world has lost all its gloss
Then I come face to face with the cross

In the light of His glory and grace
As I behold His wonderful face
His fire burns up all of the dross
When I come face to face with the cross

So when you have fallen down
And it seems you’ve forsaken your crown
Come fall at His feet in remorse
Come face to face with the cross

His grace is sufficient for you
Honor Him in all that you do
And victory will come in due course
When you come face to face with the cross

When The Wind Dies Down

I love it when incessant winds die down
And all around is silence not a sound
And then I feel the sun upon my face
And I am caught up in a warm embrace

When all around me is desolate land
I feel the sun and still I stand
And even though there are dark clouds everywhere
Beyond those clouds I know the blue skies there

The wind it often chills me to the bone
Yet just one ray of sun and I am not alone
One foot in front of another is the way that I must go
I cannot deviate despite the blinding snow

Neither to the left nor to the right
Neither stormy seas nor darkened night
Can keep me from the narrow path I know
Although it may be flooded or blocked with snow

I’ll keep om walking till the very end
Because I know He is around each bend
I shall wade through waters high and mountain snow
As long as He is with me this I know

So if you cannot see your way ahead
Nor fall asleep when you lay down on your bed
Lift your eyes and see that shaft of light
That warms your face and guides you through the night

Then all the noise shall cease, no not a sound
I love it when incessant winds die down
And then I feel the sun upon my face
And I am caught up in a warm embrace.

God is with us.

Posted by appolus on January 12, 2017

If you have searched your heart
And found your conscience clear
Despite the troubles of the world
Your Lord and God is near

When all around are troubles
And there’s no sleep to be found
For sure you’re on the narrow path
And your Lord is all around

When you survey your troubled world
And despair knocks at your door
Do not doubt the path your on
Gods behind you and goes before

You will often hear this whisper
Your God has abandoned you
You are lost and you’re forsaken
But you know this is not true

He was a liar from the beginning
He’ll be a liar until the end
Your Lord and God is watching you
He’s your King and He’s your friend

So let me tell you something saint
When you think your all alone
There is one who ever intercedes
Before a Holy throne

Lift up your head oh child of God
And see that heavenly host
Surrounding you on every side
In Christ now make your boast

Stand up stand up ye child of God
Stand up in Him alone
Draw near and weep and worship Him
Before His holy throne.

He still rules the winds and the waves.

Posted by appolus on January 1, 2017

He still rules the winds and He still rules the waves
He still reigns in majesty and His precious blood still saves
He is the Christ and His light still shines forever and a day
I am the branch and He’s still the vine, His light still leads the way

He is Lord of your yesterdays and all of your tomorrows
He wipes away our fears, our tears and every one of our sorrows
Today is the day, we can know nothing more than this
If your eyes are on tomorrow then His presence you will miss.

Christ alone still rules and on His throne He reigns
He’s setting loose the captives and breaking all their chains
He’s washing clean the sinner and healing their disease
He still sees our afflictions, He still hears all our pleas.

He’ll finish what He started, He’ll make us all complete
He is the balm of Gilead for those found at His feet
He is our light in darkness, our joy in the midst of pain
Open up the door He knocks and He’ll do it all again

Yesterday , today and forever He will always be the same
He loves you with unending love that is why He came
If you will follow in His steps, that path that He has paved
You will discover that He still rules the winds and rules the waves.

Footsteps in the snow

Posted by appolus on December 28, 2016

Sometimes you just want to walk into the light
And leave the shadows far behind
Tis cold when the wind is blowing
Especially when it’s blowing through your mind

When the center of my soul is cold and weary
And the snow is falling in my heart
I turn my face towards the sun
The one who saved me from the start

And with heavy feet and the weight of the world
I stumble forward for there’s no going back
One step at a time, day by day
Following footsteps in the snow, in the dark

A path before me, footsteps in the snow
One step in each footprint is the way I must go
One day at a time ever closer to thee
No longer you and I but forever we

Tis your footsteps in the snow
That I follow each day
They wind their way through the valley
Ever leading the way

Thank you for the sun
When in my heart the snow falls
Thank you for your voice
Over the wind it still calls

I’ll follow the path that you tread for me
Despite the darkness the path I can see
And even when the snow is heavily falling
Through the wind and the rain I hear my Lord calling

So your word is my lamp and your voice leads the way
And the path that you walked guides me every day
Through the wind and the rain, the snow and the storm
In a very cold world your love keeps me warm

Face to face with the cross.

Posted by appolus on December 21, 2016

When I have suffered great loss
I come face to face with the cross
Will I get down on my knees and pray
Or shall I turn and walk away?

Each day as I walk through this life
And face troubles and heartaches and strife
When the world has lost all its gloss
Then I come face to face with the cross

In the light of His glory and grace
As I behold His wonderful face
His fire burns up all of the dross
When I come face to face with the cross

So when you have fallen down
And it seems you’ve forsaken your crown
Come fall at His feet in remorse
Come face to face with the cross

His grace is sufficient for you
Honor Him in all that you do
And victory will come in due course
When you come face to face with the cross

When the wind dies down

Posted by appolus on December 18, 2016

I love it when incessant winds die down
And all around is silence not a sound
And then I feel the sun upon my face
And I am caught up in a warm embrace

When all around me is desolate land
I feel the sun and still I stand
And even though there are dark clouds everywhere
Beyond those clouds I know the blue skies there

The wind it often chills me to the bone
Yet just one ray of sun and I am not alone
One foot in front of another is the way that I must go
I cannot deviate despite the blinding snow

Neither to the left nor to the right
Neither stormy seas nor darkened night
Can keep me from the narrow path I know
Although it may be flooded or blocked with snow

I’ll keep om walking till the very end
Because I know He is around each bend
I shall wade through waters high and mountain snow
As long as He is with me this I know

So if you cannot see your way ahead
Nor fall asleep when you lay down your head
Lift your eyes and see that shaft of light
That warms your face and guides you through the night

Then all the noise shall cease, no not a sound
I love it when incessant winds die down
And then I feel the sun upon my face
And I am caught up in a warm embrace.

Healing the broken

Posted by appolus on November 8, 2016

The beauty of the forest
Hides the broken tree
The wonder of your Blood
Covers all of me

The glory of your love
Covers all my sin
It brings a wealth of healing
And beauty deep within

You heal the brokenhearted
And set the captive free
You allowed you’re broken Body
To hang broken on a tree

You’re love is all-consuming
You wipe away all tears
It follows and it leads me
Down through all the years

No matter where I run to
I always find you there
On the highest rugged mountaintop
Or in the valley of despair

You surround me with your beauty
And impenetrable light
You walk with me throughout the day
And every darkened night

Where could I flee from your presence
Over land or hill or sea?
The wonder of our mighty God
Is that He dwells inside of me

Thank-you for your glory
And sharing it with me
You came and touched this captive
And forever set me free

The Silent depths of His wonder

Posted by appolus on October 14, 2016

I am lost in the silent depths
Of Your secret wonders
Like gazing at the universe
And the sky above that thunders

Who could plummet the depths
Of a peace beyond all measure
Who could even begin to count
What’s amassed in Your heavenly treasure

Who could soar the heavenly heights
Of the glory that’s all yours
Who could begin to guess the strength
Of your power that simply endures

I can plummet all of Your depths
And soar to the heavenly heights
I can walk by the strength of Your arm
That takes me through the darkest nights

Your heavenly treasures supply all my need
They simply never come to an end
There is peace and joy and boundless hope
From my Lord, my Master and my friend.

I long to be away

Posted by appolus on September 20, 2016

I have flown in heavenly places
Yet still confined to earthly spaces
There’s a part of me that has touched the skies
And with each touch another part dies

Two forces yet only one eternal part
One love that has forever filled my heart
The glory of the crimson tide forever changing me
Lifts me up then takes me down into the glassy sea

I stand enshrined in this mortal coat
Yet the Love of God itself keeps me afloat
Adrift and carried by the crimson tide
The Bridegroom ever beckons home the bride

In this world but surely not a part
To another Kingdom belongs my longing heart
This other Kingdom burns inside of me
As it carries me into the glassy sea

As I approach the glory to be found
I find myself once more on Holy ground
A place where I will find eternity
A place that lies in the midst of the glassy sea

Oh longing heart with wings you must take flight
And lift me from perpetual fleshly night
And deliver me to where my Saviour reigns
A place where at my feet lies broken chains

Children of Liberty

Posted by appolus on July 4, 2016

I am my Father’s son and together today we are one
I am my Father’s son and together today we are one

With then high praises of my Father
And the glory of His Son
And the power of His Holy Spirit
We shall fight till the fight is done

I am a daughter of the King
It’s to Him I raise my voice and sing
Through the power of the Spirit
And the Blood of Christ my Lord
I’ll lift my voice in victory
And then I’ll swing my sword

We are sons and daughters of blessed liberty
We shall fight and die for the one who set us free
And with the high praises of our Father
And the glory of Christ His Holy Son
We shall run this race and we shall not faint
We shall run this race till this race is done.
