(Isaiah 42:2, 10)
He Will Not Shout
He will not shout
Or call or raise
His voice in streets—
He’ll teach God’s ways.
The Noble Man
The noble man
Makes noble plans;
By noble deeds
Will that man stand.

Each One is Right
Each one is right
In his own eyes
But only One
Is truly wise.

(Psalm 19:12, Mt. 5:13-16)
Lord, Cleanse Me
Lord, cleanse me from
My secret faults
So I may be
Your light and salt.
To Serve the Lord
To serve the Lord
You rise and fall:
He’ll set your place
To meet His call.
His fame increased. One evening he said, “Steer
The boat from here down to the other shore,”
So they went; the waves rose and the winds whizzed
While Jesus in the stern was fast asleep
Upon a cushion, and the boat was sinking,
And they said, “Teacher, don’t you care if we
Drown?” and he got up, rebuked the wind
And told the waves to quiet down, as though
He spoke as dad to son who’s done a prank.
The wind and waves subsided to a breeze,
Then they were calm. He’d stretched disciples’ minds,
As God will do to those who come to know
Him, and they asked, “Who is this who can tell
The wind and waves to quiet down, and they
Were scared, yet to the territory of
The Gadarenes they walked with Him, when men,
Two men possessed by demons, men who dwelt
In tombs, came, screamed, “Why do you come our way
And interfere with us, God’s Son? You’d love
To torture us before the time comes when
We will be punished. If you cast us out,
Then cast us in that herd of pudgy pigs
That feeds on that hill!” “Go, then,” He commanded,
And demons left the men, went in the herd,
Which plunged down that steep hillside and was drowned
In water; herdsman ran to town, so big
This was, and people did not understand
And begged Him to depart, as they preferred.
To Decimate a Country
A country well,
Get rid of God;
Let Satan dwell.
My Love for God
My love for God
Has grown each day;
Thank God he washed
My sins away.

Silence is Loud
Silence is loud
When you should speak
And have the might
To save the weak.
