My Beloved

I know His voice; I hear Him call
His gentle touch; my all in all
More precious than the time before
The love we share becoming more

I feel His breath upon my cheek
While lying still in prayer, I'm weak
Shekinah glory, bids me "Come"
I enter in, breathless and numb

His perfect love pours down on me
I'm swept away in cleansing sea
His sweet embrace doth calm and soothe
My rapid heart, I want not move

Ah, Forever in Thy arms, I pray
O, Lover of my soul, bidst stay
'Tis bliss to know Thy tender touch
My Jesus, love I Thee so much

Love Sick

A little more love sick is my heart
Yea, a little more ready to depart
No earthy ties to keep me bound
E'er listning for that trumpet sound

Naught of this world can satisfy
Affections set on things up high
My soul is ravished with Thy love
Desires long for things above

I've tasted O, the Lord's sweet kiss
Rivers of praise flow from my lips
Lo, weak before Thy throne I bow
In worship, Lord; come take me now

E'ermore with my Belov'd to reign
'Tis none, no other sweeter name
Than Jesus, Savior, Lord, and King
My raptured heart can only sing

A Mother's Love

Lovest thou these more than Me? These words ring in my ear
When e'er my world's consumed; He speaks, and lo, I hear
From You, dear God, these blessings come; I praise Thy holy Name
'Tis Thine own hand, that givest good; am I to suffer blame?

Too tightly I am holding, Lord? Too close to my heart cling?
The arrows Thou hast given me, such joy to my life bring
I've yet to know a love so deep, so true and O, so strong
Ah, sweet fulfillment to my soul ; to love them can't be wrong

Teach me, God, Thy ways to learn, 'tis hard for me to know
A vessel weak in need of Thee; direct my path to go
Thou formest me and knewest me before the earth and time
A steward of these precious gems; Thine to keep, not mine

Faithful Father art Thou to me; to caution wise indeed
Shepherd, guide me in this life, Your gentle warnings heed
I thank Thee for my children, Lord, a gift from Heav'n above
The tender way You hold me close; to Thee I give my love

Acknowledgement

This world is Thine and all therein; vast beauty to behold
A footstool ‘neath Thy Heavenly realm, with riches yet untold
‘Tis Thine to rule; Thine to give to lowly man and beast
A temporary dwelling place, until all time shall cease

I thank Thee, Father, for Thy gifts; my heart aburst with love
Thy goodness pours upon the earth, rains bounty from above
Nature shouts Thy glorious name from mountaintop to sea
Rocks cry out and songbirds sing their praises unto Thee

Thy gentle Holy Spirit doth bring comfort to remind
He with ears, O let him hear, redemption draweth nigh
All splendor of the earth shall pass; ‘tis null for to compare
From agony to ecstasy; to those who will, You’ll share

A Heavenly home forevermore; awaits the redeemed soul
With Jesus as the prize to be, press onward toward the goal
I’ll watch and pray and live each day, my eyes fixed on the crown
Before Thy throne, at Thy dear feet I’ll worship and bow down

My Testimony

T'was in a church as a child that I heard
The story of Jesus through God's Holy Word
I kept it a secret, t'was no sinner's prayer
I only knew that this 'Jesus' cared

I felt that I loved Him, though I was yet small
Held dear to a portrait on our living room wall
Out-stretched hands that were bleeding and brow I did kiss
Each night at bedtime, seldom to miss

While praying to God one evening in bed
The strangest of words then entered my head
How different and funny and certainly new
I whispered an answer, "I'll marry You"

Needless to say, along with this came
Guilt and confusion, especially shame
Not long after this, attending church stopped
The newly-found love I confessed was forgot

Until one day by the Spirit t'was led
My hungering soul, and Alas! I was fed!
My burden was lifted, no more could I hide
I knelt to King Jesus and humbly cried

T'was here that I learned of a race and a prize
A Bridegroom, a crown, what's this, a bride?
My mind raced back to re-live that dear night
To marry Christ; of course! It was right!

Those words, not my own; yes, I did hear it!
His words, "marry Me" wooed by the Spirit
Humbled and broken I cried, "Lord, I will"
Then peace like a river came, tender and still

My prayer unto God at that time went this way
"Father, from this truth, let me ne'er stray,
May this truth ever burn, ever dwell in my heart,
And from this path, may I never depart"

How faithful my God has been unto me
The mystery is now for my family to see
Together we run for the prize soon to win
My Savior, my Bridegroom; Ah yes, even Him!
