Title: *RHYMES OF CIR SUBJECTS*



Title: *RHYMES OF CIR SUBJECTS*

1.
A Biblical Solution
For the New Year
Trials are Proof
Of the Father's Care
The Leap In The Dark
Secure as Noah's ark
God Is Able
To keep you stable!
Try and Try Again
Your efforts won't
Be in vain
"In His Name"
Troubles become tame
The Courage To
Make Mistakes
Gain Inspiration
As your true
Joy awakes.

2.
Glory to God
In the Highest
Our father is
Never biased
Power To Obey God
For His Glory
And to understand
Our human story
The Patience of Job
Evangelized around
The globe
What Do You See?
Multiple blessings
Flowing for thee.
Cast Yourself at
The Lord's Feet
Your life will
Inevitably
Be complete.

3.
Cast Your Burdens
Upon The Lord
Trust will be
Your just reward.
Seek God's guidance,
Not man's advice
For by His Grace
You need not
Think twice
Don't Give Up!
Never ever stop
God Shall Strengthen You
Adopt His Loving
Point of view.
When We Are
Ready To Fall,
He hears our call
God Lifts Us Up
To share in His
Everlasting cup.

4.
It Isn't Circumstances
That Defeat You
It's believing in things,
That are generally untrue.
Facing All Without
Wavering, sing
Lest back the door
Of sin should spring.
Treat Others with
Dignity and Respect
Delivering what you
Expect to get.
Christmas Blessings
Lifestyle lessons
Refrain From Anger
Give kindness
To a stranger
Hands To The Plow
Staying present
In the now.

5.
The Most Profound
Thing In Our Lives
Is our preparation
For when the Lord arrives
Conquering Indecision
Overcoming superstition
God's Instrument
Joyful and content
Ground Your Confidence
In the Rock of Ages
As you grow through
The various stages.
Faith In God's Name
Eradicates all shame
True Decisions
Require Action
Strive to overcome
Distraction.
Awakening to the Truth
An Education from youth.

6.
Courage and Perseverance
Overcoming interference
Making Life Joyful
Whether warm
Cold or cool
The Power of Christ's
Mighty Word
The healing of
His precious blood
God's Purpose
In Our Lives
All for which
Man diligently strives
The toxic effects
Of hate
A degenerate,
Degraded state
What Is Defeat?
Is it striding muffled
Down a back street?

7.
What is God's Will
For You Today?
Could that be
What you must obey?
The Difference between
Hating and Loving
Are the after effects
Of pushing and shoving
God Knows Our
Circumstances
Life affords us
Frequent chances
God's Armory
Protects His devotee
God's Spiritual Pharmacy
Anoints our human family.

8.
The sin of self-pity
Merely belittles me.
Through Grace
God satisfies our
Soul with Jesus
O what peace
For all believers
Praise Him with all joy
Praise Him girl or boy
Effective living
Is measured by
What we overcome
And not by
The challenges
That we keep
Running from
Grumbling fixes nothing
Neither does bluffing.
Our greatest selves
Is where our wisdom dwells
Be patient with others
They are your
Sisters and brothers

9.
So important is
Trusting Christ's
Sufficiency in our lives
As theft from others
Is extremely unwise.
Trusting in the
Ways of God
Believing forever
In the lord.
Resist the devil
And he will flee
By the words of God
That you decree
The Grace and
Sweetness of Christ
Within,
Means you can
Always think twice
About sin
Salvation is God's idea
Upon the cross
Our sins did bare
The fullness of
Jesus our master
Helps our deliverance
From sin ever faster.

10.
Resist the devil
By submitting to God
Put your trust and
Faith in the Lord
Crisis and opportunity
Mean blessings
And accountability
The difference between
Visions and Principles
Is as certain
As humans and animals
Loving God with
All our souls
As we each
Identify our roles
The futile pursuit
For happiness
Can often lead
To unhelpful stress
Facing our inner selves
Is precisely where
Our responsibility dwells
Fasten to God's
Unchangeable nature
Behaving as a born
Again Christian
With stature

11.
God's eternal joy
By our wisdom
We duly employ
Our anchor in every storm
As fellowship with Christ
Becomes our norm
The joyful expectancy
Of true faith
Makes prayer more
Powerful than haith
Have you become
A Christian based
On your own terms?
Or are you doing
What the Lord confirms?
Waters of Life
Healer of strife
Freedom from the past
No longer outcast
Guard both weakness
And strength
Obey the word
At any length
Our desire to heal
We no longer
Can conceal.

Title: *Christ Our Anchor*


Title: *Christ Our Anchor*
1.
Today our Father says
I hear your prayers 
Receive my breath
Arise from death. 
Breathe in my Grace
Look into my Smiling Face 
Breathe in my ministry
Breathe out my sovereignty.
It's so amazing to fathom 
How I breathed into Adam 
Who then became 
A living soul
Complete and perfectly whole
Endowed with authority 
To extend his community
Family and dominion 
Over several billion
He was given birth
To subdue the earth 
Extracting from it
A heavenly place to sit
And receive the blessings 
The many exciting lessons 
I created for him to live by.
In reaching for the sky
Notice how many are those
Which bloom of summer rose 
Born again life-giving spirits,
Sharpening all their merits, 
Recreated in Christ,

Invited but never enticed

2.
Ministered by angels
Taking it in turn to
Ring the church bells
This is who
You are beloved
Keep that truth
 In your head
Understand what
it constitutes
Accept no substitutes. 
Refuse all bad
 Images of man
I am your biggest fan
Refuse all those 
Images of failure 
Push them right 
Out the door.
Permit not those shadows
Of past deeds and things
An attempt to clip 
Your precious wings
You are not a failure
Nor are you a bore. 
You are not without hope
You have tremendous scope. 
No, your future
 Is not bleak. 
For, even as we speak
This very hour,
You are a
Principality and Power
Sanctioned by 
The shed blood
Of Calvary
To set man free 
To go out
And quench all doubt 
And to demonstrate 
With love not hate
Who I AM
In all the earth.

Title: *The Leap In The Dark



Matthew 21:21 

And Jesus answered and said to them,
 "Truly I say to you, if you have
faith and do not doubt, 
you will not only do what was done to the fig tree,
but even if you say to this mountain,
 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' it
will happen.


Title: *The Leap In The Dark*

In the rills,
On the hills,
Up from the soul,
The music's deep roll.
From God's choir,
A chorus of fire,
Welcomes us in
No more in enslavement,
Ransomed from sin
Fields ever vernal
Trials vanish away
The kingdom of glory
Day after day
Sunshine the story
Weeping no more
Love before you
The emerald shore
From death's slumber
We are set free.
Where there is Heaven
Song there will be
Peace now a given
Jasper lit sea.
Luminous sunshine;
The glorified throng
Proclaiming evangel,
Of sanctified song;
Every bright rafter
Praise we can hear.
Sunlight to meet us;
Joy always there.

Title: *Awakened to the Truth*

Title:*AWAKEN* C1 /Visual Prayer Art by Rev.Bola


Title: *Awakened to the Truth*

1.
Spirits forevermore
At the door,
At His feet,
Hastening to meet;
May His call be heard,
His every Word.

2.
Angels join to pray
All night and day 
They sing;
Then shall they bring
Forth, by mighty hand,
The promised land.

3.
In love and joy
Old bonds, 
And chains destroy.
All faithful men will see
Their Savior set them free,
On those glorious of days,
The gentleness of His ways!

4.
The righteous approve,
With love, 
Their constant move.
Of peace and grace,
He grants dear souls 
More space,
From sin and wrong.
His love dwells strong,
And long.

5.
Much delight and pride,
So commonly denied.
Love's foe made fully aware,
Of the common snare.
It's from depths as these-
Our God doth please.
For such a day-break,
Oh Careless world, awake!

6.
The Lord hath spoken
His promises never broken.
All pain will pass away,
Without further delay.
Hence we must awaken, 
From this doom and gloom.
Our day has surely come;
A truth no time has shaken,
What divine steps 
Must be taken?

Oh, careless world awaken!

Title: *SWEET EMMANUEL*

Title: *EMMANUEL*C8  - from Set painted by Rev.Bola


Title: *SWEET EMMANUEL*

O Israel.
Rejoice! Emmanuel
Hail thee, 
With majestic awe.
You gave the Law,
On Sinai's height,
Lord of might,

O Israel.
Rejoice! Emmanuel
And close the misery.
Safely lead us on high,
Towards our 
Heavenly home
Of  David, come,

 O Israel.
Rejoice! Emmanuel
And put to flight
Clouds of night
Thine advent here
O come and cheer.

O Israel.
Rejoice! Emmanuel
Victory over the grave
Thy people you save
From Satan's tyranny
Sword of Jesse, 
Now free.

 O Israel.
Rejoice! Emmanuel
O God appear
To this lonely exile here
Ransom captive Israel
Come now our
Sweet Emmanuel,
Do come.
