Heart

Where shall we start
When the world is crumbling apart?
This strength is bickering like a tiny spark
Even so, take courage and take heart

Walk the earth in acres of sorrow
To face the day and a fickle tomorrow
No, don’t you give up fast
Even now, take good care of your heart

Found

Caught up in this sound
This sound where my heart is found
Beating inside this love all around
Lost in your song where I am forever bound

Caught up in this sound
This sound where all noises drown
Breathing inside this melody
Your music calls and pulls me to your symphony

Heaven

Open up, I’m standing by
God, you hear enough a sigh
My breath is knocking on your heart’s door
You know I wanna be on heaven’s floor

Open up, I’m standing by
I just wanna see how you smile
So God, I’ll sing below your window
And catch a light casting your shadow

Galaxy and ABC

You scribbled a drawing of a galaxy
From point A to point B
As easy as 1-2-3
Everything came to be

Your eyes watch the galaxy
From point A to point B
You found me lost in between
And saved me from far drifting

I don’t wanna land on the moon
Don’t wanna land too soon
Until I land on Your heart to belong
And be abducted where rainbows throng

‘Cause I’m a voyager wandering away
Like a rocketship in disarray
In search of Your heavenly home
Let the Morning Star lead me on

Losing Faith, Losing Sight

Losing faith is losing sight
Do we back down and give up the fight
Crawl facedown afraid of heights
Disrupt your wings and cancel all your flight

Losing faith is losing sight
The light is bright but it seems days are nights
Daunted and never stirred by all this plight
Deny your might and cry “my oh my”

Tornado winds are harsh but not for long
Get down to the ground ’cause your knees are strong
Mountains quake but your heart they can’t take
Heaven and earth watch so courage you can’t fake

Words

Can’t find words to say
I can only the find words to write
And I wrote a song for you
A song I can’t find a melody to

And this heart only knows a beat
Syncopated in vast nervousness
Funny how my folly retreats
And my pride sings in all my shyness

Blanked out silent as I lay
I barely could whisper your name
It is what my lips can only say
Crazy speechless in disarray

Daydreamer

Wake me up, O heavenly peace
And catch the sun’s morning kiss
Past the moon’s evening breeze
And make up for yesterday I’ve missed

The night is over
Yet my eyes still surrender
The night is over
Arise, daydreamer

And what would it take to be alive
When all along sleep is a disguise
Should I set my reveries aside
And wake me up with a heavenly surprise

Strong As Love

Your eyes never surrender
Awake all night when I retreat to slumber
And you catch me even when I hide
So I can only hide cringed by your side

Your eyes never surrender
It meant love even in anger
With affection forgiving my wrongs
And find me in tears sinking in your song

Your eyes see me in my weakest
Wise enough to know how to fix it
And there’s a fire burning bright
Unraveling my heart bared at your sight

Your eyes are strong as love
Intense enough melting down my pride
Your eyes gaze with stubborn grace
And saw me even before I was made

Beyond Melody

How easy at times to be singing songs
And write profound words that makes me look like I’m strong
But then all along I could all be wrong
And see I am but human after all

So I’ll sing not because I can
And write songs not just because of who I am
It never was all about me
But all about the One
Whose unfailing grace resounds beyond melody

Not at all this strength to boast
It’s not how I can tune out this melancholy
Oh how it breaks me
When my weakness is wrapped in God’s mercy

Beyond the melody
Beyond this poetry
Beyond faults and folly
His love is upholding me

Meaningless

There are roads not worth traveling
There are races not worth running
When everything seems meaningless
May I only choose what matters most

There are moments not worth lingering
There are bygones not worth remembering
When everything seems meaningless
May I only choose to move forward to tomorrow

There are dreams not worth chasing
There are risks not worth taking
When everything seems meaningless
May I only live for what I was made for

There are wars not worth waging
There are words not worth saying
And if I choose to fight
May I only fight for what’s worth fighting for

There are pains not worth keeping
And there are joys worth pursuing
And if there is a joy to pursue
May it be the joy of being with You
