Path of Life

the-sun-470317_960_720

Upon a path we each walk

Hoping to be on a solid bedrock

Often our path gets muddy with pitfalls along its course

Looking to not get stuck in remorse

How we get through those patches of pain

Without getting stained

Is how we build character and fortitude

An inner strength we will exude

But how do we conquer those traps that we cannot escape

Who can you turn to keep you in shape

There is one we can place our hope and trust in

The Lord our God who is our savior

Out of Darkness into the Light

Man Walking Towards Cross

Purging the darkness out

Fighting back the void of night

Left with a hole so full of blight

Walking a path through a tunnel ahead

Towards the end and freedom’s stay

Often stumbling and falling to the ground

Arms of darkness trying to pull me back down

Trail ahead fraught with danger

Fighting furiously to save my soul

Alone I’m left lost to despair

Needing the help of the one who has conquered death

Pull me close oh Lord, fill me with your might

Lead my path ahead into your light

On Top of the Mountain

1394692645307

Standing on top of the mountain so high 

Telling the world look at me, full of my pride

World looks back and strikes me down

Knocking me off this ground so high 

Tumbling down among the rocks I fall

Bashing me bruising my very soul

Crashing amongst the trees

Busting me breaking my heart to pieces 

Falling all the way down to the bottom I go

Landing in the mud and the muck of this world so cold

Wanting to just lay down and stay

The valley of death stares my way

Slowly pulling myself back to my knees

I look to the only one who can rescue me

Lift me up Oh Lord upon the wings of an eagle

Heal my battered and bruised soul

Put the pieces of this heart so broken

Back to where they once did belong

Lord my Savior, Lord my God

Guide me back to the mountain top so high
