Peaceful River

Poem By Jesse Wood

Upon the banks of a peaceful river,
Submerged in the purifying waters as each and everyone is
baptized in the name of the Holy Ghost.
Tranquility of the babbling brook overflowing
Doves descend upon everyone who takes the plunge to follow
The saving waters that have cleansed the souls of men
Forever indebted to the Creator
The beginning, middle and end of what was, is and soon to come
An eternal sacrifice that followers must endure
The power of the Spirit that is within each person’s grasp

We cling to the Heavenly essence beyond the white moon and
twinkling stars, which measure innumerable in the clear night sky
Walking in the footsteps of the Messiah
We walk in the path of righteousness
Holding steadfast to the promise that
The Christ, the Almighty Savior, was sent here to protect His people.
His return to the Earth is imminent
He will walk among the living, and raise the dead
To the Peaceable Kingdom.

The River overflows abundantly
With grace, majesty beauty divinely inspired
It flows in perfect harmony
It does not cease for anyone or anything
As one by one we take our crossand diligently trust in Him
To guide us all with his mighty compass
From East to West and from North to South
The River flows inside all of the those who abide
In the ever patient love that surpasses
All earthly understanding
We are all born in a life renewed through Him
Like newborn babes in our basinet
A gentle hand rocks our cradle
As the peaceful river of life everlasting, lulls us all to sleep!

Where Angels Go

Two doves perchèd upon the throne of God
Fore'er indebted in wedlock'd bond.
True love cannot be measured with a rod.
Like ripples on the Lord's celestial pond.

In You Shall We Find Rest

King of the Jews, King of my heart
My heart longs and aches for your mercies tender
Divine, incarnate Spirit sent to save accursed world.
Who else, but the Chosen One would deliver me?

Lost, Lonely Girl Blues

You are a lost, lonely little girl
Have another dose of medicine to ease the pain
Your Daddy has gone off to war; you will never again see his face
Love and Acceptance - the bitter pill that you cannot swallow.

The Lilly (Of Salvation)

Thousands of freshly cut lilies in bloom
Signify life and a promise of peace
Three days gone by then they opened the tomb
Christ Jesu arise, from sin you release


Fair maiden with thy skin a milky hue.

Who rul'd kingdom forty years and more.
