Keeper of the Flame

Keeper of my heart Keeper of your name Keeper of the fire that burns, Oh keeper of the flame Oh eternal fire And Holy passion that you are Let this flame of holy love Burn deep within my heart More love for you, more love Oh keeper of the flame Human love is not enough To bear your Holy name I must be filled with love divine That keeps me night and day When I feel your…

Lady Liberty Cries Out

Where is our Lady Liberty I fear she’s almost gone Her torch is barely burning It’s almost been snuffed out She’s standing in the harbor Crying “Help me someone please!” Is my country praying Have they fallen on their knees? There is one who will help us If we call upon His name He birthed us as a Nation But since then Oh how we’ve…

Resurrection Life

I want to know Him in the power of His Resurrection Life While still in this body Amidst its battles and its strife Overcoming all of death that works in me Released from all its bondage By His life I am made free Lifted out of self And all of its deceptions Coming into more of Christ Who alone is my perfection Jesus rising up in me To be seated on His throne Possessing…

The True Vine

Jesus said, “You are the branch I am the true vine This work in you Is all of mine Dwell in Me I’ll dwell in you There’s not a work That you can do But in me You must believe I am the life You must receive I’ll trim and prune And cut away All that’s of you That cannot stay So you’ll bear fruit That must remain Nevermore To be the same…

The New Creation

a poem by Donna Bennett Beyond this old creation And all that we can see World’s unknown A Holy Throne Multitudes of beings An immense reality Before one thing was created And all things came to be Was God alone with His thought For a family He makes His angels winds His servants flames of fire But Cherubim and Seraphim Filled not His heart’s desire Though…

The Life

There is a life inside of me, Though when at first received Is very small and immature. It’s just a tiny seed. Watered by the Holy Spirit This seed begins to grow. As I learn to eat of Him Beyond what I could know. This life is meant to overcome And overtake my soul Until I’ve been made free of self And under His control. Let this life produce in me All that I…

The Stars Do Speak

The Stars Do Speak The stars above in all their glory How they sparkle and do shine To tell the ancient story Of His Gospel, Christ Divine. They have not failed to speak In every constellation From the day they were created Shining down on generations. Their speech is endless As they proclaim to all upon the earth. For was it not His star That led the wise men to His…

Bridal Journey

Far above rubies A priestly bride The Queen in gold Stands by His side Bone of His bone Flesh of His flesh Clothed only in His Righteousness His cross she bears Upon her breast Her heart is His To be possessed Upon the earth And through the years Her journey long And wrought with tears She fully knows To reach the throne There is a path That she must own To be refined To…
