Drift Toward Pride - (by Tom Balistreri)

Success in ones life,
may cause one to drift,
into feelings of pride.
This is well to resist.

When the power of the humble,
have their feelings shift,
the wise will remember,
talent is God's gift.

An Elixir For My Soul - (by Tom Balistreri)

Your Holy Spirit Fills my soul.
An elixir for my thirst.
Your love envelopes me.
In my good times or my worst.

You refresh and renew,
my spirit and my life.
I love and thank you Lord,
for granting me Your light.

He Will Give You Rest - (by Tom Balistreri)

Go to the Lord,
He will give you rest,
from weariness,
of earthly quests.
He will grant you joy,
and all it brings.
And the peace to love,
quieter things.

The Precious Gift - (by Tom Balistreri)

It is a gift so precious.
Worth more than pearls or gold.
It's value never changes.
Whether it is young or old.

It begins at it's creation.
But it never has an end.
It is common for everyone,
yet unique and can ascend.

Despite rank or positions,
that one may possess,
your spirit, soul and life
make you one and you are blessed.

I Look For A City - (by Tom Balistreri)

In this cruel world,
without pity,
I look forward
 to a city.
Built in love,
by God’s hands,
heavens reward 
for righteous man.

The Burden Of Light - (by Tom Balistreri)

The Lord calls,
and at His behest,
I come to Him,
and He gives me rest.

I’m released from struggle,
and use of might.
For His yoke is easy,
and His burden is light.

Gather Together - (by Tom Balistreri)

Let us not forsake,
are gathering together.
For as iron sharpens iron,
we are stronger and can weather,

the trials and challenge,
that believers may face.
Yet we hope in Christ,
and stand in our faith.

Merciful Light - (By Tom Balistreri)

With God there is light,
illuminating with love.
Around, within,
below and above.

Darkness flees,
truth made bright,
souls are redeemed,
in God's merciful sight.

Open Me - (by Tom Balistreri)

Open my heart,
open my eyes,
make me aware,
let me realize.
The beauty,
the truth,
glory inferred,
the blessings You've given,
through Your Word.
