A new year’s prayer

By on January 1, 2014

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 […]

The birth

By on December 25, 2013

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 […]

The Shepherd

By on July 6, 2012

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 […]

The broken heart

By on April 5, 2012

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 […]

First Christmas

By on December 24, 2011

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 […]

The narrow way

By on November 18, 2011

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 […]

The miracle

By on October 8, 2011

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 […]

The third person

By on August 6, 2011

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 […]

Someone hears my cry

By on July 9, 2011

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.   […]

Just for me

By on April 22, 2011

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? […]
