Grace

Grace beyond vast oceans’ deep
Embrace my soul with eyes to see
This glorious love, so strong, so free
Immerse me in its flood

High above celestial reach
It towers o’er grand mountains peak
This splendor reaches low to me
Poured out in crimson blood

Awake this soul once bound now free
Redemption’s call beckoning me
Chains broken on Calvary’s tree
Christ’s ransom – grace enough

Take Me Back

IMG_0517.JPG

Take me back down traveled track
where sands stretch out to sea
where wheat grass grows in golden rows
on rolling dunes set free

Take me down to yonder town
who lights shine sparse each night
while ocean’s song plays on til dawn
‘neath heavens canvas bright

Take me where I breathed sea air
as eastern winds blew strong
their salted breeze, my soul, did ease
its breath a soothing balm

Take me east that farthest reach
of Carolina’s Isles
whose beaches sparse refresh my heart
whose sunsets stretch for miles

Take me back down traveled track
where sands stretch out to sea
where in the grains my heart remains
Salvo, I long for thee

Voyage

imageCast off and away, my darling one
Full sails, stern set, abide
Within the bellows, this ebb and flow
Shall rock you as the tide

Sails set securely, catch strong headwinds
Pulled swift upon this sea
As billows roll with rhythmic droll
Lay safe within and be

Gathering clouds veil starry night’s sky
Heaven’s lights dimmed still shine
Beyond surrounding storm’s rage, their light
Ablaze with strength entwined

Fear not the towering waves nor storms
Dark vanquished by rising dawn
For longest night’s chill melts at the sun
New mercies bestowed beckons song

Wonders abroad silently stand watch
Eagerly awaiting your gaze
Vast treasure troves nestled long ago
Shall set your soul ablaze

Cast off and away, my darling one
Full sails, stern set, abide
Within the bellows yon horizon calls
Onward to distant skies.
