Set Your Sail

When sigh becomes sob

When cry becomes scream

When a single tear

Becomes a flowing stream

When nightmare takes over

Your fondest of dream

When time has come

In the middle of life

That overwhelmed you are

With pain and strife

Hold on I say

It will turn around

God has placed your

feet on solid ground

For it’s in Him

That you will prevail

When upon His course

You set your sail!

Siren Of The Sea

I am the siren
of all the sea

Standing on the rocks
you will find me

I beckon the sailors
as they sail by

With a haunting song
unto them I cry

“Look my brave men
see me on the shore,”

“Come in to me!”
to them do I implore

“I offer you pleasure
if you just come in,”

“Gaze upon my beauty
my love you may win”

And with my allure
to them do I insist

For the burning desire
they just can not resist

As they sail in
I give them a smile

For upon my rocks
their ship becomes a pile

Broken wood and dreams
as I gulp them all down

Because of sinful lust
in my sea they drown.
