WITHIN A BABY'S SKIN
WHY DID GOD CHOOSE HUMBLE SHEPHERDS ?
O JESUS - HOW YOU LOVE
FROM THE STOREHOUSE OF HIS BOUNTEOUS SUPPLY
BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED
HE MADE A MIRACLE .
WE HAVE A COMFORTER IN JESUS
LORD - ONLY YOU CAN MEND A BROKEN WORLD.
FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE
FOR SOME CRAZY - BUT GLORIOUS REASON
WHILE THE LORD CAN STILL BE FOUND
BE WITH US DEAR LORD ..
NO MORE TEARS.
WITH JUST TWO PLANKS OF WOOD .
EMPOWERED BY HIS SPIRIT -
FOREVER - GOD - IS
BE STILL - MY CHILD
HIS ROD AND STAFF - THEY COMFORT ME
HE KNOWS THE JOURNEY ...
SEATED WITH YOU IN HEAVENLY PLACES
IS THE WRITING ON THE WALL ?
I ENTER HIS GATES WITH THANKSGIVING
LET HOPE FILL THE VACUUM
WHO CAN BREAK THE CHAINS ?
IF GOD HAD A WALLET
THE HOW - THE WHY - THE WHEN .
THE LORD'S PRAYER
HE GIVES US - YET AGAIN
I WONDER - COULD IT EVER BE ?I
YOU ARE STILL GOD .
IN ALL THINGS ...

3) HELP ME TO TRUST
(The Hurting One )
Who can set me free from this pain ?
Is there anyone who can help ?
Is there anyone who understands - or even cares ?
Can anyone untangle so many painful memories -without adding to the trauma ?
Without tearing every nerve - and closing down the system..?
Is there anyone that skillful ?
If there is - please let me know ...
Only - don't give me pretences or vain promises ..
If you can't tell me - then let me be ..
I'm safer as I am - even if this may not be the best .
But I can feel the walls around me ...
However cold and dark they are to touch -
They are familiar .
To pull them down - and expose my pain - would leave me helpless ..
Like a snail outside its shell - with no way back ..
Vulnerable - paralysed - expectant of the worst .
But if you know - then tell me ..
I've heard it said - there's ONE who cares -
Who is gentle - but strong ..
Who handles fragile things with love -
Whatever that means ..
But it sounds good - even though I tremble at the thought ..
Somehow I know it is dependent on my trust ..
So - Help Me To Trust ...
O GOD .... Help Me To Trust !
