Mercy Seat

If we sit in the mercy seat
there will be no defeat.
If our eyes are on Him
our sight will not be dim.
If we hold tight
our grasp will be right.
If our hand is to the plow
we will get through it somehow.
~
It all boils down to grace
if we seek His face.
If our feet are on the road
we are in the right mode.
There is no time to dilly dally
for now is the time to rally.
If we unite and be one
then the task will get done.

Clean

Being clean
is so serine.
It feels good
like I knew it would.
Come away from the sin
then you will win.
If to the Lord you went
in order to repent
He will more than forgive
and you will be able to live.
~
The Lord will wash you clean
then you will feel so serine.
He will set you on your way
and you should have a good day.
Make sure you say thank you
for what the Lord did do.
You will find
you’ll have peace of mind.
To Him, you should thank
He is the highest rank.

The Way

I know the way
because I did pray
He will show
me the way to go
It’s that evil enemy
who doesn’t want me free
he’s attacking my body
he is so haughty
bringing trouble and distress
trying to make a mess
harboring to make me sick
relenting not to make it stick
He brings on all the pain
for our lives he hopes to gain
he tries to fill us with shame
this is his sad and evil game
always wandering around
looking for new ground.
~
The body needs to close the door
To God we must implore
for He is our refuge
our God is huge
He is our champion
saving us from the evil peon
with a mighty roar
my God will heal what tore
He will close the door
if to Him we do implore.

His Call

When you hear His call
you need not worry at all.
He will clear the way
we need to go to Him and say,
“Make my way straight.”
Do not hesitate
to ask Him for more
God will enable us to score.
We need to keep ourselves clean
Our lives will be seen
by many young and old
our stories will be told.
We will have a surplus
for our God-given purpose.
It is only by His hand
that we are able to stand.

He Hears

Blessed be His name
all glory, honor, and fame
to the Lord who has heard
my each and every word.
The Lord does hear
and wipes my every tear.
The Lord is not just there
showing us His care.
He is also right here
so we need not fear.
We can just relax
He will remove the stacks
of obstruction.
His construction
will bring life to our bones.
He also can remove the moans.
All this we must trust
for God is righteous and just.

Transgression

There is so much aggression
stench is in the transgression.
Because of the sins of Israel
the glory of the Lord fell
away from them.
~
From where did this stem?
They turned away
not giving God the time of day.
~
The Christian church is the same
they dishonor God’s holy name.
The glory of the Lord does glisten
however they do not listen.
~
One is no better than the other
for church is Israel’s brother.
They are one in the same
from Lord they came.
~
So it all comes down to,
what did we all do?
It is the ultimate worst
we did not put God first.
~
You’ll see if you are a good learner
He’s been placed on the back burner.
From our enemies we’ll take the brunt
for our God is not in front
so now we do lack.
~
We’ve pushed Him to the back
for all to see
His mighty glory.
~
God, we need not blame.
In Him, we did not remain.
Troubles came upon us
then we began to fuss.
~
Damage was done
but our enemy has not won.
The Lord, in His grace
will save our face.
~
He will pick us up
with Him we’ll sup.
He will renew our spirit.
His Word, we will hear it.
God we will obey
each and every day.
(based on Micah 1:1-5)
