I WISH

General poem by aroluyeye

aroluyeyearoluyeye
I wish life is always free and fair
And success appears fast as a deer
I wish the sky is always blue and clear
And men will for one another care
I wish the fathers would take their stand
Likewise the mothers offering their hands
I wish we would function effectively as would a band
Not scattered around as sand on land
I wish our pains and sufferings were less
And we didn’t oftentimes have to guess
I wish our lives aren’t really such a mess
Not seeing in ourselves the wild wild west
I wish each person wasn’t so cocky
As is seen in the black male turkey
I wish our egos aren’t so bulky
And that we realize that we’ve just been so lucky
I wish we really had someone to tea ...

WHEN AND THEN

General poem by aroluyeye

aroluyeyearoluyeye
When the streams of man’s effort are gone
His labours and struggles are with done
Then the Lord will arise with healing in His wings
And prove Himself as the strong and mighty king
When all that man is left with are sighs
And he watches as his days stream by
Then the loving father comes that He may comfort
And justification is declared from His eternal court
When the carnal wisdom of man fails
And enormous are the ‘ifs’ and ‘mays’
Then the most high arises as sovereign and prime
And makes everything beautiful in their own time
When the calculations of man go wrong
His mind filled with more sorrows than songs
The Holy Spirit of God comes as comforter
Showing we’re e ...

I Will Sing Lyrics by DON MOEN

General poem by T-Ralph

Stanza 1
Lord, You seem so far away
A million miles or more, it feels today
And though I haven't lost my faith
I must confess right now
That it's hard for me to pray



Bridge
But I don't know what to say
And I don't know where to start
But as You give the grace
With all that's in my heart



Chorus
I will sing, yes, I will praise, even in my darkest hour
Through the sorrow and the pain
I will sing, I will praise, lift my hands to honor You
Because Your word is true, I will sing

Lord it's hard for me to see all the thoughts
And plans You have for me, yes it is

Oh Jehovah Lyrics by EbenM.I.Lindsey

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


Intro
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He maketh me lie down in green pastures.
He leadeth me beside still waters.
He restoreth my soul.
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for thou art with me.
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
Thou annointest my head with oil.
My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Chorus
It's raining red!
Showers of the love of Jesus
It's in the air
His blood is flowing from the cross
Straight to my head
It´s restoring everything that's damaged



It's raining Red!
It's washing my sins out
I don't care who knows
I'm surrounded by the grace and mercy everywhere I go
It´s restoring everything that's damaged



Stanza 1
When the load got to heavy
He helped me carry the load
He didn't let me bear the burden alone
And now I've been set free
No chains holding me
He reminded me of the sacrifice he made on Calvary
Now the windows of heaven are open
Pouring out a ...

I just looked up today
And realized how far away I am from where You are
You gave me life worth dying for
But between the altar and the door
I bought the lies that promised more
And here I go again



Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh (Twice)



Lord, I know I let You down
But somehow, I will make You proud
I'll turn this sinking ship around
And make it back to You



But all my deeds and my good name
Are just dirty rags that tear and strain
To cover all my guilty stains
That You already washed away

All You've ever wanted was my heart

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Miracle Lyrics by Michael W Smith

General poem by T-Ralph

Stanza 1
A rebel heart
A restless soul
I lost my sight
I lost control
A cry for hope
Could I be saved
You found a way
You found a way

Your miracle is burning bright in me
I was a slave, and now I'm free
I'm lifting high these broken chains
You always find a way

Speak Life Lyrics by Toby Mac

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


Stanza 1
Some days, life feels perfect.
Other days it just ain't working.
The good, the bad, the right, the wrong
And everything in between.



Though it's crazy, amazing
We can turn a heart with the words we say.
Mountains crumble with every syllable.
Hope can live or die



Chorus
So speak Life, speak Life
To the deadest darkest night.
Speak Life, speak Life
When the sun won't shine and you don't know why.
Look into the eyes of the brokenhearted;
Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope,
You speak love, you speak...
You speak Life, oh oh oh oh oh oh. You speak Life oh oh oh oh oh oh (Twice)

Stanza 1
Maybe there's a light in my soul
Maybe it flickers like a neon sign
Outside an abandoned hotel
Maybe there are things you just can't know
But can you say there are no mysteries
In that house you choose to dwell?



Chorus
Maybe we are entertaining angels unaware



Stanza 2
Maybe there's a place where we will fly
But some, say God is dead like Nietzsche said
And faith has made me a fool
But maybe there is more than meets the eye
Who's that stranger, there, beside you?
Don't be smug and don't be cruel

There's a rose in the desert
Blooming red in the drought
There's a quenching rain
In the wings of the gathering clouds
Lift your eyes
Look to the horizon now
There's still a hope for us
Reach up from the dust
And call it down



Chorus
Can you hear
Can you hear that thunder
Sing His name, sing it out
'Til the sky spills over



Stanza 2
I may just be dry bones
Stripped of sinew and skin
But the wind of His spirit
Will raise me up again
I lift my eyes
I look to the horizon now
Oh, there's still a song to sing
Fall down on your knees and cry aloud

No shadow comes without the light making a way
No raging storm can ever defy one word of faith

No matter what may come I know
You won't let go (Twice)

No valley low, changes the truth
So I'm not afraid
You hold me close
You lead me through and light up the way

Neither tears, neither trials
Certain as the sun will rise
Nothing can

Verse 1
Yo! Take my picture, Cheese
I know we´re big here, We´re also big overseas
Guys around the world are feeling our sneeze
And the ladies are screaming it´s ROOFTOP MCS
See that´s us in the spot light
With our clothing line, You know, we look tight
Make cheddar faster than we can spend it
Got our own comics, investments in Germany
By thirty five, I own my own jet
Mansion by the lake and I ain´t done yet
Wait a minute, I´m losing direction
I feel foolish, I need your correction
Put first the kingdom, my brother
And the things you boast for, na jara
Lord please bring me back
If you have to hit my head, like a cong ...

Though Ordinary Made Extra Ordinary

General poem by Michael

MichaelMichael


I fail with words,
Speeches and essays all alike,
Weak in heart,
Short in sight,
Nevertheless, I am strong,



How can this be,
An ordinary man,
Possess extraordinary ground,
Cos of Christ, a saviour



Like all others,
I have this pleasures,
Yet I am rest assured,
Heart beats assured,
Even as I write,
My story speaks assurance,
I lean and cling,
I speak and boast,
I believe and receive,
Even to doing good deeds,
And Thinking right thoughts,
All this I do,
Believing and receiving,



I am extraordinary Cos of Christ,
I boast of his work,
It causes me to rest,
And who is this saviour?
It's Jesus,Son of God



For he cried,

Stanza 1:
The lights go out all around me
One last candle to keep out the night
And then the darkness surrounds me
I know I'm alive but I feel like I've died
And all that's left is to accept that it's over
My dreams ran like sand through the fists that I made
I try to keep warm but I just grow colder
I feel like I'm slipping away



Chorus:
After all this has passed, I still will remain
After I've cried my last, there'll be beauty from pain
Though it won't be today, someday I'll hope again
And there'll be beauty from pain
You will bring beauty from my pain

Lyrics of Twale by FLOROCKA

General poem by T-Ralph

Stanza 1:
If I was an eagle, I would lift myself
Spread my wings and fly
If I was a lion, I would run into the jungle
And give the loudest roar
And if I was the sun, yes I would rise early in the morning
And shine my light so bright
If I was an angel, I would sound the alarm
For the whole of creation to bow at your feet



(yes Sir!)



Chorus:
Kabiyesi Olu orun, I have come to give you twale (to give you twale)
To give you worship (To give you worship)

Wish I didn't always compare myself
Wanting what You give to somebody else
Wish that I felt a little more content just being me
Just being me
Wish I wasn´t stuck on what's going wrong
Wish I'd just enjoy this ride I'm on
Remember how good You've always been
Cause I believe I believe



Chorus:
It's enough that You know what I'm needing
It's enough just to go where You're leading
Keep my feet on the path and my empty hands
Always reaching up
It's enough just to breathe in the moment
And wherever I am I can know this
If I have nothing else
I will always have Your lo ...

All you ever wanted to be
Was someone the world would see
You dress to impress you put up your best
And all it left you was empty



Bridge:
But a dress won't make a princess
And jewels won't make a queen
Cause you were made for more than this
You're worth more than what you see

You are fearfully and wonderfully
A daughter of the King
You are perfect in the Maker´s eyes
Even when you don't believe
His love pour out for who you are not who you want to be
You are fearfully and wonderfully made
A daughter of the King
