Wall Leaping Power (based on Psalm 18:28-30)

He is a shield of protection,
I can leap over a wall.
His love and ways are perfect.
He gives me power to make troops fall.
For those who do seek,
He will give refuge.
The promises of the Lord,
are faithful and true.

You Know Best

I know You hear
my every word.
You know deeds to come,
and what has occurred.
Even when my prayers
seem deferred,
You give the best,
not what I preferred.

The Train Song



With a distant wail that pierces the night,
a train horn blows rolling towards daylight.
The rails give beat as it moves fast.
A living ghost from out of the past.


Through hills and valleys this train does roll,
through abandoned towns that’s lost its soul.
A marvel from long ago,
it’s final destination nobody knows.


It carries freight.
It moves coal.
Occasionally a traveling soul.
The engineer,
he sits awake.
He’s got a schedule he has to make.


He remembers as he looks back,
to a time when he didn’t have to share track.
He could roll on a dozen lines.
Now he always knows where he’ll be assigned.


Through hills and valleys this train does roll,
through abandoned towns that’s lost its soul.
A marvel from long ago,
it’s final destination nobody knows.


The engine pulls with power strong.
The trains just seem to keep getting long.
Becoming a memory in film and song.

How it will be missed when it’s gone.

From Your Prayer Closet

Every word said,
in your prayer closet,
is heard and answered,
for the Lord deposits,
blessings and grace,
that rains down from above,
to His children,
that He loves.
