All May Find It - (a poem by tom balistreri)

From the great to the small.
From the corrupt to the pure.
Redemption is provided,
and Your love is assured.

Joy and peace may feel elusive,
in this world of sin.
But to dwell in God's Spirit,
brings one peace within.

Seekers Of The Profound - (a poem by tom balistreri)

Many in the world are bound,
by the gurus of the profound.
The thinkers of the enlightened,
the leaders of the frightened.

When words of wisdom cease,
and followers are seeking peace,
there's surprise when they find,
God possessed it all the time.

A New Melody - (a poem by tom balistreri)

I will sing,
a new melody,
a song of praise,
of what You've done for me.

You've restored my soul,
and set my spirit free,
now I lift my voice,
to worship thee.

The Stubborn Soul - (a poem by tom balistreri)

The stubborn soul,
full of pride,
lives for itself,
with naught denied.

A Godly spirit,
freely gives,
and in the giving,
eternally lives.

Not Subdued - (a poem by tom balistreri)

It's hard for one,
to be subdued,
when ones heart,
has been infused.
With Gods Spirit,
love and grace,
we're freed from death,
and in heaven's embrace.

I Await And Watch - (a poem by tom balistreri)

I await and watch,
for Your response,
towards the trial,
that surrounds and haunts.

I pray for release,
rescue by You,
or strength given,
to see me through.

Standing After The Fall - (a poem by tom balistreri)

I have vowed,
and I have failed.
My foolish ways,
seem to prevail.

My Lord forgives.
But I do not.
I curse myself,
for what I've wrought.

Yet again I stand.
I am not done.
With the help of God.
I'll overcome.

Seeking Reprieve - (a poem by tom balistreri)

Hear me Lord.
Grant me reprieve.
From trials and tests
that deceive.

Remove this burden.
Make pain cease.
restore to me,
Your holy peace.

I Seek The Specific - ( a poem by tom balistreri)

Lord I seek the specific,
to understand Your plan.
To rightly find Your will,
and do the best I can.

Though the path is unclear,
I will do as You saith,
for the trust I have in You,
is the sign of my faith.

I Look For A City - (a poem 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.

We Stood On The Edge

Sin took man,
to the edge,
but he was saved by God,
who gave a pledge,

to remove the price,
greater than wealth,
by sacrificing,
the Lord himself.

A Great Ovation - (a poem by tom balistreri)

Let out a shout,
a great ovation,
for Christ is Lord
over all nations.

He will rule.
His ways are just.
With truth and love
in God we trust.
