Storm of Mercy: one of my favorite songs


Storm of Mercy

I was born in iniquity
Sin was deep inside of me
I never thought I could ever be
Free from my depravity

But then your might and power
Like a rainstorm passed over
Your love in claps of thunder
Your lightning struck me on my shoulder
Then came your cleansing shower

The thunder cracks
And I cry Holy
The lightning strikes
And I cry Holy
The rain pours down
And once again
The love of Christ
Cleanses my sin

The thunder cracks
And I cry Holy
The lightning strikes
And I cry Holy
The rain pours down
And once again
Lord your power is shown
As you forgive my
SIN


I’ve been your enemy
I’ve loved just only me
Hurt you though you saved me
On the cross on that tree

when your love and grace
Rained down upon this place
Thunder pealed into the space
Your lightning struck with it’s trace
Rain poured a welcome embrace

The thunder cracks
And I cry Holy
The lightning strikes
And I cry Holy
The rain pours down
And once again
The love of Christ
Cleanses my sin

The thunder cracks
And I cry Holy
The lightning strikes
And I cry Holy
The rain pours down
And once again
Lord your power is shown
As you forgive my
SIN


As Christ’s child I see
How his gift is all I need
Yet His love it still pours down
Everyday it fills all around

When I sin his strength is shown
It surpasses all man has ever known
Breaking cords of sin so so strong
Showing me I’m not ever alone
And soon You’ll bring me home

The thunder cracks
And I cry Holy
The lightning strikes
And I cry Holy
The rain pours down
And once again
The love of Christ
Cleanses my sin

The thunder cracks
And I cry Holy
The lightning strikes
And I cry Holy
The rain pours down
And once again
Lord your power is shown
As you forgive my
SIN

Basically I'm going to use this blog to post my poetry so feel free to let me know what you think


Moonlight

Across the barren fields
In the midst of a stand of trees
I stood with hands uplifted
To embrace the gentle breeze
The sun sunk low in the west
And with it my worldly cares
Run and hide behind it’s veil
Erasing all my pain and despair
Stars rise in their delicate patterns
Shining down heavens lovely light from above
It seems in the dark you are near me
And in these moments I’m surrounded by love
But a night can quickly fade
Forced away by the brightness of the day
And the beauty of a rose in the moonlight
In the sun is swept away
The rapture of the night
Is lost in the light of the dawn
The clarity of the dark
Cannot defy the vagueness of the sun
Where have you hidden your beauty
Who has stolen our sense of belonging
What has chased away our trust
How can we find loves fire sweetly refining
Right you seem but a dream
A sweet fantasy briefly appearing
But for a wonderful moment of time
Then vanishing into the light’s concealing
Across the barren fields
Near a muddy puddle rain filled
I bent peering at a reflection
Which to me only your face revealed
Hidden in the shadows of my memory
Before me yet always incomplete
A picture unformed fading slowly
Shrouded in mystery replete
Racing burning all before
Sunlight dashing hopes aside
Leaving scars burned deep
Slowly a tear drops and I cry
Where are you now
Where have you gone
What happened to the wind of love
What’s happened to the undone
Dirt and dust slip through
The fingers of my hand clenched
I just can’t let go
As I stand in the starlight drenched
Desolation destruction all that’s left
Yet in the night the rose petals fall
In evanescent glory to the dust
for their blessed scent I’d climb hells wall
Clouds in a blue sky
I watch my love die
Right before my eyes
Before we had the chance to fly
Across the barren fields
In the midst of a stand of trees
I stood hands uplifted
To embrace the gentle breeze
