We Are Broken

(Part of my E100 poem series)

Matthew 13:1-58

How can He heal us
If we don’t know we’re ill?
How can He mend us
If we don’t know we’re broken?
How can He save us
If we don’t know we’re in danger?
How can He lead us
If we don’t know we’re blind?

Lord, we are broken.
Lord, we are blind.
Lord, we’re in danger.
Lord, we are ill.

Heal us and mend us.
Be our Savior and Guide.
Hold us and tend us.
In You we will hide.

Give us eyes that have vision.
Give us ears that will hear.
Give us hands that will serve You.
Give us hearts that draw near.

Lord, we are broken.
Lord, we are blind.
Lord, we’re in danger.
Lord, we are ill.

Heal us and mend us.
Be our Savior and Guide.
Hold us and tend us.
In You we will hide.

To Those Who Listen

(part of my E100 poem series)

Luke 2:1-40

An angel
A promise
A word
Brought witness
&nbspTo one simple birth
To those who would hear
The voice sounded clear
And heralded peace
Come to earth.

The Blessed Way

(Part of my E100 poem series)

Matthew 5:1-6:4

Stand when He calls
Live in His light
Love one another
Do what is right

It’s not the world’s way
It’s not what you’ve learned
It’s not about rights
Not what you’ve earned

It’s going to be hard
It’s going to be rough
But rest in the Lord
For He is enough

It’s learning God’s way
And it’s walking tall
It’s being His image
A blessing to all

It will not be easy
It will not be safe
But you’ll receive blessings
Held in His grace

Tell Us, Angel

(part of my E100 poem series)

Luke 1

Tell us the news
Oh angel of God.
Proclaim the message
That comes from His heart.
Tell of the future,
The plans He has made.
Tell of the present,
Our part to be played.
From His presence
You have come.
As He will
May it be done.

Neighbor

(Part of my E100 poem series)

Luke 10:25-37

It
would be
easy
to love
someone
I like
It
would be
easy
but it’s
not what’s
required
It
would be
easy
to love
just my
friends
It
would be
easy
but that’s
not where
it ends

the homeless
the hungry
the stranger
the ill

the one we’re
afraid of
the one who
is wrong
the one who
is weak
the one who
doesn’t belong

who is my
neighbor?
who shall
I love?

each one
the Father
allows me
to touch

(part of my E100 poem series)

Luke 15:1-32

I’ll keep waiting,
Don’t lose hope.
I’ll keep trying
To bring you home.

Fruit of Repentance

(Part of my E100 poem series)

Luke 3:1-20

Is our fruit good?
Is our fruit true?
What does it show?
What does it prove?

In our lives?
In our days?
In our words?
In our ways?

Are You our source?
Are You our goal?
Are You withing us?
Do they know?

Before

(Part of my E1oo poem series)

John 1:1-18

Before there was light,
Light was.
Before there was life,
Life was.
Before there was breath,
Breath was.
Before there were words,
The Word was.

And the Spirit Led Him…

(part of my E100 poem series)

Matthew 3:1-4:17

I love you
I send you
Where you will
Be tried

I love you
I send you
Where you
Cannot hide

With trust
And obedience
You’ll prove
I am He

With trust
And obedience
You’ll lead them
To Me

Why Are You

(Part of my E100 poem series)

Luke 22:1-46

Why are you sleeping?
Where is your strength?
Do you not know
You’ll find it in Me?

Why are you carrying
All of your cares?
Why do you not bring them
To me in your prayers?

Why are you waiting
Around for My will?
What’s writ in My word
Is true for you still.
