In God I Cling- (by tom balistreri)

There a times
I can not laugh and sing.
My only hope,
is in God I cling.

The pressures squeeze,
and buffet me.
I need the Lord,
to set me free.

Where is the end?
The morning light.
When will the path,
again be right?

Here me Lord.
Set me free.
All my hope,
I put in Thee.

lose his soul?

because of sacrifice,
one can have new life in Christ.

Every Nuance - (by tom balistreri)

Finding The Missing - (by tom balistreri)

One walks through life,
accumulating things,
yet still it feels like drifting.

There is an empty space
deep inside.
Something is missing.

Seek for it
and you shall find.
God's love is not hidden.

He comforts all
and completes a life
with the Spirit He has given.

Not Your Home - (by tom balistreri)

If you feel,
you don’t belong,

They are in the world,
but not of it.

Through The Gray - (by tom balistreri)

Although the world,
is dark and gray,
and chances mist,
clouds your way.
Prayer opens a path,
through the haze,
and the light of God,
will guide your way.
