Are we strong enough to let go of those whom we love

Will you give to God, your child, your little five years old

Do you have the strength to give away and let go

If the Lord calls upon her today

Are we strong enough to take a step back and let God take control

Will you give to the Lord your lover, the love of your life

If the Lord calls, are you willing to let go

Are we those who have the faith that is needed to move forward

Will you be assured that they are now in the hands of the Lord

Will your heart rejoice though not with you, they smile with God

Or will your heart be beyond healing

The Lord knows and He understand

For we all belong to the Lord

He gives, he takes away

Are we ready to let go if the Lord calls tonight

If He takes your loved one, will you still say,

Blessed be Your name my Lord

Blessed be Your name

The Sinless for an Unkind World

Creation stood still

Heavens were silten

Angels bow their heads

The sun hid itself in disbelief

Brids ceased their songs

God turned His eyes away

Tears from the world He hid

The Son of Man, hangs on a crude cross

Blinded, man shouts victory slogans

Blinded, man smiles

His heart is darkened

Sinless, this great man, forgives

As he draws his last breath to His Father He cries

It is finished

The sinless, Son of the Father

Laid His life for the world unkind

Be Still

I stood there; around me things were moving violently

Everything was falling

Winds were blowing

The ground beneath me was shaking

There were voices screaming

But through all that a still small voice said

Be still and know that I am God

Scary voices still continues

My dreams were overcome

Dark faces laughed

Hands tried to break me

Weapons, blood to spill

But still that voice said

Be still and know that I am God

Tears would not stop

I felt all alone

No one around me

No support

Only voices of discouragement

No love

But again I heard,

Be still and know that I am God

Today I stand strong

The battle is won

I was never alone

There with me, beside and within me

A power, love that nothing can break

I was still

I knew it was God

I knew that hand on my shoulder

I know it was Him

I stood firm and still

I called upon the Lord

The Castle now Stands in Ruins

The castle now stands in ruins
Before it are sad eyes, filled with tears

Almost eighty years ago
Brick by brick a house was built
So much of laughter
Joy abounded
Many tears and also times of loss
It has seen it all
Three generations, abundant lives

Twenty seven years ago a little waked in
This was to be her home
It was not just a home
It was her castle
This place was special
It was the only place she called home
The orphanage was no home

So many memories, some sweet, some bitter
Here is where bond between father and daughter grew
This was the place where she said her goodbyes as he lay still and cold in a coffin
It was here that she ran to and fro from her loving fathers arms
Birthdays, family gatherings, many treasured times and wonderful memories

Now she stands before her home
Her castle which is no longer hers to call her own
Heavy is the burden on her heart
Heavy is the burden on her soul
Unknown men walk in and out through her safe place
Brick by brick they destroy
Watching, she feels violated
The castle now stands in ruins
Before it are sad eyes, filled with tears
