Disguised

You all think you’re something special

Like you’re some human who’s actually an angel

Just covering up and disguised as the devil.

Wait, I may have said it backwards –

You’re like a human who’s actually the devil

Just covering up and disguised as an angel.

Never mind, does it matter?

When the fire ceases and smoke scatters

I still lay here shattered

To peer behind the disguise is truly

One thing that haunts me

As the truth slowly dawns on me

You’re truly hideous to behold

If only you didn’t glitter like gold

Not all that glitters is gold

 

The Throne

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord, the earth is filled with His glory!

Painting the skies with majesty, such is his forte

Before all who ever lived and were, stood Jesus

And He will still stand when all else is turned to dust

Outside of time and space, our words cannot praise

Near enough, the glory of your face.

Holy Father of light, from darkness you call first

And lo, the darkness to light gave birth

At your will you speak, and all do tremble

When Christ returns, every nation and tongue will assemble

They will confess, “Your Majesty and Holiness

You are the greatest, the brightest, the strongest and the best

Our words cannot describe your Holiness”

From least to greatest, this will they confess,

“Jesus, you are Lord, Master, God and King.”

This they will confess whether they be willing

Before the throne, where endless praises roll

Where the Lamb of God is sitting upon the throne

Where tongue will fail to describe the power of his presence

And all they can do is bow down and make obeisance

But who are we? O Lord, that you are mindful of us?

We are nothing, just children of dust?

We stumble and fall. We are so weak.

Yet to us from the throne does grace leap.

Redefined

​The constant crash of the waves of time

And broken hearts, doth the individual redefine. 

What we though of yesterday, is not who we are today

But mere jars of clay used in all the wrong ways.

Fractured, broken. Glued together we are

Just tiny specks of dust underneath the stars.

Fleeting like the wind, our days do fly

Too often we reject the truth and hold onto the lies

We deceive ourselves, like fools we be

O Lord, you see, help me see the real me.

With all these breaks, my heart does change

Every day leaves me never again the same

But you, o Lord, forever, never change

Help me hold on, when all else is shifting sand

On you alone, do i stand

A weary, broken, feeble man.
