Abandon Praise

(Image Source:

Along the shore I danced
and with great abandon praise

The Lord of my life
as thanksgiving for His grace

Being unaware of the time
 I pranced around through space

The joy of my abandon
could nothing there displace

And all through the sand
my footprints you could trace

Even though the evening tide
did some of them erase

The warmth of the sun
I felt upon my face

As ever up and down
the shore in dance I race

The pleasure of His presence
I found in this place

Told me He was watching
my abandon dance of praise!

We All Have

We all have regrets
which bring us sorrow

That if they’re allowed to
overshadows hope for tomorrow

When mired in grief
over things we’ve done

How can forgiveness be
within ourself ever won?

In sin are we
naked before the Lord

But all that He bore
when pierce with a sword

That we be held
in God‘s loving grace

And our every transgression
did His sacrifice displace

Therefore I do say
that you mustn’t allow

Regret to overwhelm you
but rise above somehow

For if our Lord
does so forgive you

Should not the same
you yourself then do?

Put On A Happy Face

Tracks of tears
you can trace
or put on
a happy face

There is beauty
found in grace
so put on
a happy face

What is torn
you can lace
by putting on
a happy face

And don’t wallow
in your disgrace
just put on
a happy face

Share with others
in this place
the pleasure of
a happy face

For through time
and all space
the lasting memory’s
a happy face!
