Beyond my understanding

When I think on the thoughts around Godliness

Confusion can block me I confess

Unseeing belief is good for me I guess

But I don’t feel fine when my life’s a mess

 

God beyond my understanding

Personal, abstract or no name at all

Be my sweet DNA, ground my being

Love me completely, enlighten my way

Discretely please guide me so that I may

 

Fall, fall into Your opening arms

Fall, fall right down upon these knees

Call, call out now for Your loving balm

Restore me, renew me so I receive

 

You are the Name above all names

You are the word beyond my lone voice

You hear what I need before I  say

You chose to bequeath me my own choice

 

For You are the luminous great I AM

You shine Your light upon everything

Even when we choose to walk alone

You patiently wait to guide us back home

Yes you are patiently waiting to guide us home.

Deeply Well

Drinking in the lite life

Checking out for a life time

Holding on for the right vibe

Searching happiness and peace on-line

Mesmerising myself again

Within a moments consolation

Building longer loss upon an instant gain

Drowning with anticipation

And we say:

Please hold on within your strife

But dont let yourself be held by it

Walk bold and free within your life

But don’t stamp your foolish pride on it

Don’t grasp the wrong away from right

Judge and jury of folks behaviour

Be guided by His strong tower light

As you wade in these seas with your saviour

Wading in the watering

Surfing waves that surely quenches

Satisfying thirstfulness again

Immersing well beyond our senses.

Presence perfect

formless beyond description

arisen upon descent

saving all-told from destruction

a presence that Perfection sent.

spreading laced veils before us

we smile and cry through our strife

mourning, while weal’s keep on turning

salt weaving the woundings of life.

.

.

borne high we stoop low for a season

to carry the wrong with the right

we weigh every load upon reason

just like beasts in the burden of night.

.

.

yet spirits smile silent upon us

sweet fragrances sent in the sky

even tides sway to know moonlight

ravines weep down steep mountainside.

.

.

eagles charm Light with their feathering

angel wings balm every soar

Love reigns to sooth with Her weathering

Life water flows deep in our core.

Beneath this dry crust

Beneath this dry crust

grit, dust and pain
soft whispering tears
gently refresh Your name
to re-soothe this fright
caress stress and this strife
impress hands side by side so
to fill within Light.

chorus
cheek by cheek, may we discover
Jugular breathing of Lover to lover
Beloved release us, incense us with sweetness
immerse us in perfumes of True Love’s completeness.

Light pouring out
Illuming this living
Re-shining doubt
so to see without seeing
exposing confusion
we free flow these Oceans
to joyfully drown within
earthly illusions.
