Your Spirit

Your Spirit dwells within me,
Oh yes, so deep within,
Especially after I asked you Lord
To wash away my sins…

You Spirit daily leads me,
In the reading of Your word.
Never was something so welcomed,
As its strength which is daily heard.

And I find that I am no longer lonely,
For deep inside my soul I daily see.
Your Spirits love is always very near,
Every morning lovingly embracing  me.

And I know no times of loneliness now,
No  nothing like it was once before.
For You alone rescue my heart and spirit,
Making them Yours forever more.

You Are The Only One I Need

Oh Lord my God, the beauty
of your word is the strength
of my spirit

Your golden word is the radiance
of my joyful heart

You have left me breathless,
sweeping my heart away,
whom shall I love in my life
but you...

 whom I shall embrace each day.

You alone have satisfied my thirst,
and by your hands my hunger is
always stilled...

I only stand because your power lifted me.

I bow down before you because
your grace has saved me, blessing
my life in an awesome way...

whom shall I honor this day?

Only you shall be honored with
my hearts praise, I shall declare
to all whom live in this world
the majesty and heavenly grace...

of the only one who can save.

You alone can renew life
and my very breath is yours
as my life belongs to you

and it is you alone I seek to serve.

If I turn away from you Lord,
I will surely suffer immensely,
and I would pass away...

because I need your spirit to live.

You are life to me, and
the touch of your spirit daily
fills me with your awesome kiss
of love

When it comes to your greatness
I am always moved to tears as my
heart and spirit are greatly humbled

I find that I cannot exist without
your great love, for throughout
the passing moments of my day

I am made to see Jesus, that you
are the only one I need.

All My Love

I came to thirst for something
And for what reason I did not know
Yet the Lord, he satisfied my thirst
With sweet power I will never let go

I hungered for that special something
And deep within I felt  excruciating pains
But my Lord, he satisfied my hunger
Before I could even praise His name

When I fell into sins great hellish pit
Where it seemed my life would end
My Lord Christ, he did forgive me
As He gently washed away my sins

Before I knew what It was I needed
All my needs and wants He satisfied
Leaving me only wanting to give to Him
My heart’s praise for the rest of my life.

Your Word

Your word always makes my thoughts stop
While making sweet dreams to begin
I embrace their magic as it flows through me
As it touches the total whole of me within

For the pure life in your words is so gentle
So very soothing and awesomely serene
And when they enter within my spirit
Everything they touch shines so radiantly

And Your spirit always seem to do this to me
With each living word which makes images stay
For the blessing of Your word daily overwhelms me
While inside each moment my breath is taken away

And my mind cannot ever stop dreaming
As I always feel Your words sweet embrace
Because in my life Lord, I could never live
Without Your word's sweet genuine taste.

Ever Thankful

As this morning calls my eyes to open
Leaving me to feel your joyful presence
You lift my mind into very high places
As my heart was embraced by your love

It gave birth to a million radiant smiles
And just as many blushing childish grins
While the very first thing that came to mind
Was to thank you for letting me live again

And I could hear the soft gentle pattering
On my window as the rain began to fall
And even as its voice was speaking clearly
I could hear the blessing of your loves call

And as all living things began their dance
Joined together their voices rose up to pray
Happily thanking you Lord for another chance
To send out from their hearts sweet praise

I thank you Lord this morning for the reminder
Which always assures me your spirit will stay
No matter whether one is truly good or bad
You give to many of us another chance today

My heart joyfully embraces all of these thoughts
While causing a love song to rise within as I pray
And along with my spirit they give birth to a psalm
Thanking you Lord, for another very special day

To seek you again with open hearts and arms
Again feeling the spiritual hunger grow inside
As we bathe anew in your blessing of love
Realizing that last night we could have died

A Must

You were made a little lower than the Angels
Yet all creation is below Your feet
You became one like Your earthly brothers
And with great power in our world you did speak

And God, Your God above did bless you
And has placed his power in your hands
So that only you can change a heart of stone
To one of flesh for an unholy sinful man

I will put my trust in you who suffered
And for my sins died upon a tree
I will always humbly accept your lasting grace
Because you have shed your holy blood for me

And though I am not worthy to be called
In you will always be my trust
For I know that I would be truly lost
Without your love which in my life is a must.

My Eternal Love And Peaceful Rest

They said all I had done was only make believe
That also said never had I risen  from the grave
They said all was made up and only a ruse
That it all was just lies and a charade

They said I was never really executed
Or never by their hands was I placed on trial
They said that all of it was just a lie and a hoax
A real piece of non fiction all the while

They wanted believers not to  believe
That I was the one prophesied to come
Who would bring a victory to this world
And over death to taste victory won

I was born of a virgin into this world
Sent down from the heavenly God above
I offered myself as a lamb of sacrifice by choice
Because those I created I did love

I walked this earth among many peoples
Carrying a message of truth  across the lands
And the Holy Spirit did speak of me
That eternal life would come through my hands

I spoke a living word that did heal
The sick and those who did live in pain
And as their spirits tasted of my bread
Their lives were never the same again

And  among ones who should have been holy
The Pharisees and Saducees alike
They spread the words of rumor and untruths
That all which  I did were only lies

They saw what they had built among men
Was doomed one day to surely fall
So to save their places and their riches
From their mouths they sent out a mighty call

For they approached the worldly king of  Israel
And also asked for help from the Romans too
To trial me and bring about my death
So that mankind would not know the truth

They were guided by the love of this worlds riches
Promised from  the evil one of this world who would be King
But they sided with one destined  to be the biggest loser
And who would one day taste of a hellish destiny

And when they put me on trial for all to see
They said all which I did and say was a lie
And  if they should put me to death real soon
With my death all the rumors would surely die

But as they hung me that afternoon on a tree
With two others next to me to share my fate
The clouds became dark and storms did rise
As they heard me ask my Father my soul to take

And some who believed among the unbelievers
Did take my body, laying it in a brand new tomb
And after three days and nights had come to past
The leaders found the rumors they heard were true

For though I had laid in the ground for three days
And my body should have begun to rot and stink
The guards at my tomb and the godless soon
Had many more things on their minds to think

For my body had risen as it was written
And from deaths power I took away it's sting
For I am alive now forever and ever endlessly
The risen one with eternal life in my hands to bring.

And now thousands are saved each and every day
Who now reach out calling upon my sweet name
And Satan has lost the battle ending his power
Being destined to suffer in hell's burning flames

For the truth now overcame all the rumors
While all their lies also found their death
For I am alive,  and  I welcome all believers
Into my eternal heavenly love and precious rest.

Faith In God

As I found myself  doubting yesterday
Wondering what would become of me
You came to rescue me in my crisis
For you heard my cries and pleas...

You never have forsaken me Lord
As each day my daily bread you give
While teaching me silently to wait on you
You were also showing me how to live...

For our lives are never ours alone
Since they all really belong to you
So we should trust fully never wavering
Always having faith in what you do

And though sometimes so weak I  become
Often wondering where my faith does dwell
I will always stand firm on your holy word
That my deep faith in you will never fail.

His Living Word

His words were very soft spoken
As they fell down gently from his lips
Their beginnings were full of so much life
Yet to some who heard the moment was missed

For the treasure that most people desire
Would surely this day just fade away
Because they could not  understand what they heard
So the roots of his word in their hearts did not stay

And yet again he would speak his living words
Each begging for a chance in a heart to live
Still no one took the time to listen and receive
The life in his words which he had to give

And he shed a tear for all of the mothers
For the fathers and all children too,
Because he could see their life’s outcome
If today his words could not get through

And as the massive crowd  sat down all around him
Hungry waiting for something very  tasty  to eat
He astounded all, giving them  his words of life
Which in their hearts they could  always keep

And many this time would  openly  receive
That  which  their hearts could  really hear
For the substance in his words was eternal food
Moving many to shed heartfelt tears

For His  living word had touched them deeply
Freeing their minds and hearts from human fears
All because they took a chance on his living word
Which opened  hardened  hearts so they could hear

And many turned away from their sins that day
Accepting the word of Christ the eternal king
Filling their spirits with a tranquil piece of God
From which they will always have a song to sing.

There is a passion
inside of my heart,
It cries out for You

It sheds lonely tears
in the darkness when
it cannot feel Your...

It falters in strength
becoming weak
when You are not

Yet the passion is
strong in feelings
for You, and, You alone...

For You are my love...
My God.

The Tree

I often wonder if you really feel,
The warmth of my love inside.
If you feel that you are a true joy,
And a necessity daily to my life.
For I long for you to feel special,
And also know that I need you so.
I want you to feel that special love,
That only the best of friends do know.
For within I share a sweet passion,
That only you did place inside.
Never asking for anything in return,
Only wanting me to stay by your side.
For you have never turned away,
No, not from me a single day.
Always embracing me with your friendship,
As I did  lounge lovingly in your shade.
And I thank my God, above each day,
For the times we are allowed to meet.
As your friendship is a valued treasure,
That in my heart I will always keep.
Wendell A. Brown  copyright  April 2010
From  "I Want And Need You Now".


To my heart
You are a spring
of life.

Letting it taste
daily of Your
eternal waters.

Refreshing my tired
soul and spirit,
enlightening me.

For true life
only begins,
with your grace
and your love.

And I hungrily
seek to taste
of your eternal spring,
daily to survive.
