Songs in the night, a poem.
Lord, you give songs in the night.
You are my first love and delight.
Nearer my God to thee I sing, new brothers
and sisters you do bring.
Now I sing a brand new song, saved and in a family
I do belong.
The Church of the first born, one day for us,
Gabriel will blow his horn.
Holy, Holy, Holy we will sing, God the Father has
given us His King.
He is the Son of glory, we the Church tell of His story.
The mighty God, the everlasting Father is He and more.
He is our savior, the one we adore.
Jesus, sent from above, the Father was well pleased.
He is the Son He loved.
Jesus did shine, the divine, walking in a body like mine.
Weeping may endure for a night, our song ceases,
things are not right.
But be still my soul, remember who made you whole.
Pray and don’t despair, always remember, it is for you
He does care.
Joy in the morning will come, through Him, the battle was won.
Keep singing your praises to Him the one, watch and see the blessings
He will bring to you, His Son.
Nothing good from His Church He will withhold,
Those who are refined by Him, as pure gold.
Come to Him today, He is the door and the way.
“I am the door; if anyone enters through me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture John 10:9 NASB).
I dedicate this poem to Sister Crosson, now with the Lord. She wrote special poems, some for Lil and I which we still have and treasure. I remember saying to her; “I wish I had what you have”.(She said to me, you do have what I have but in a different way.) Little did I know the Lord would give that gift to me, I am very humbled by that. I saw the Lord when I looked in her eyes. She was rejected by that legalistic Church because she drank a glass of wine, to me that was fine. She had more of the Holy Spirit in her little toe that all those in authority would ever know! Trully as written, the last shall be first. Grace He gives to the humble, the proud and wise He resists (but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong 1-Corinthians 1:27 NASB).
