    A new year’s prayer

    Swiftly doth the time fly, and another New year lies ahead Oh! My past year resolutions, should it be to this year instead? Did I add any soul last year, or At least did mine stay fit, Did I run the race with cheer, or did I incapably quit?   Yet again that time of year, to reflect the past and start anew; And of the hard times tackled, self-interrogate “How could you?” It never could have been the strength in me, nor from those around T’was felt as unexplainable strength from a Loving wing surround!   Besides all those …

    The birth

    The birth of Grace in utmost disgrace In this world, as Son of a virgin’s womb What shame He might have had to face With all those tales people around assume! He knew the suffering of being such child And that of a mother with undeserving guilt; Panic not, if thy ways seem wild For His life too was on such shame built!   The birth of a King in lowly cattle shed Of some strange land with no help around; What humble place to lay the King’s head Where His cry with harmonious bleats surround. He knew from birth …

    The Shepherd

    My shepherd locks me in the fold For each night after dusk When the sun becomes a scarlet orb And the sky the shade of husk   I could never enjoy the hillside In the blackness of the sky When stars scatter like twinkling jewels And the moon reigns on high   Again at sundown He called for us Back to the dreaded fold All bleated and ran for Him I did my silence hold   I watched Him from hiding As He led all back Merrily they followed Him Back to the old hay stack   I watched Him …

    The broken heart

    He hung on that cruel cross He’d given up His breath The soldiers guarding pierced His side, to confirm His death.   As the spear was thrust Proved to man a precious part: As blood and water mingled flowed, God too had a broken heart.   When I feel hurt For what someone’s done to me “Why Lord?!” I in anguish cry He says, “Come, Come and see”   “I was pierced with a spear sharp It burst asunder my feeble heart Just to tell you, child, like you I too have a broken heart”.…

    First Christmas

    Christmas comes with shades of warmth With baking of sweet smelling cakes With Christmas trees with stars a’ hung And all the joy it awakes   The cards show me pictures of Lazy cherubs floating about Snow capped houses and winter moods When merrily children shout   Carols telling Christmas tale Sung with jingling bells around Cards and hugs and gifts are given Greeting with a joyous sound   But look at the first Christmas Christmas two millennia ago It tells a different story Without the Christmassy glow   I see a woman in pain Deep fear fills her soul as she Oh awaits …

    The narrow way

    Called out by name and for thee chosen, To show thy life on earth through mine; Hardened heart has this calling frozen- Refusing to do the purpose divine. Blessings bestowed from Thy Hand Out of abundant love and grace- Has made me take a different stand, To hide Thy gentle and radiant face.   No more time have I, for Thee, Lord Even for a personal communion with Thee! When I, my things for Thee can’t discard How then can I, set the captives free? The stressful target at work comes first, Days & nights spent for it doesn’t matter. But …

    The miracle

    Great was the miracle When Abraham, old beyond age Beheld Isaac, new born His righteousness’ wage   Great was that miracle When the rod in Moses’ hand Parted the sea twain And Israel walked on dry land   Great was the miracle When the three men walked the furnace Heated seven fold over yet Unhurt unburned they did surface   Great was the miracle When as token of Daniel’s faith Sealed was the lion’s mouth That to devour layeth   But greater still was that miracle When the Almighty, the King of Creation Came down to earth a mere babe To show mankind His …

    The third person

    Deeply hurt,while a kid, by words unkind from a stranger passing on the road I cried to my mom, who came to remind, “A third person,your precious tears,cant afford”. I saw the truth and consoled myself, Yes,he’s just a third person himself. Whatever he comments I don’t have to care. He will never my burdens share.   As I grew, disppointments undigestable arose Of things expected from people around, I cried to myself and realised they aint my foes, But just third persons who are not bound- To give unto me whatever I expect Or to be genuine with a mutual …

    Someone hears my cry

    Joy unspeakable and peace divine, When I knew HIS love was mine; Feeling blessed to be a gifted child, To hear His loving words mild-   After much tears of feeling unloved After many years HIS blessings bestowed- Words can’t express this crave for love, That was satisfied by the wings of the dove.   Yes,the very same dove that the Father sent- expressing He was pleased with His son innocent; Seeing my tears and heart’s desire:this white dove- Was none other than the messenger from above,   He is the third person in the Trinity With the Father and the Son working …

    Just for me

    Weary through the toughest storm No more strength to bear it all- Engraved in the dear Lord’s palm!! But where is HE when I fall?   Agonizing pain and tears are mine, Why is it MY destined fate? They said, I was made by God to shine!! But is HE blind to my pitiful state?   I pray every day, asking for GRACE For they said- Ask and you shall receive, But each day I encounter dreadful ways!! Are all the promises only to deceive?   I’m exhausted and completely broken, It’s ridiculous to believe in God anymore – who can’t even keep …
