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.
