The Father's Gift Of Forgiveness!

Poem By Denis Martindale

The Holy Spirit's been received
By those with thankful hearts,
Who in His Son at first believed,
That's how each new life starts...
Before Christ brought them peace at last,
They struggled day by day,
Till Jesus cleansed their sinful past,
Now in His Name they pray...

And if we pray for pardon, too,
Like children in the wrong,
Let's ask God, 'What would Jesus do? '
In Christ, we all belong...
If not in Christ, how can love show?
In our own strength we lose,
If we're in Christ, we're meant to grow,
So what then, should we choose?

Forgiveness! That's no tiny thing,
It cost God's Son His life,
Despite the fact He was a King,
He suffered shame and strife...
Once we've been born again, dear friends,
Forgiveness, that's the key,
Imparting love that never ends
Because of Calvary...

* The Prestige Of The Poppy

Behold my form, my humble guise, my fragile fashioned grace.
Look deep within the giver’s eyes, some noble hopes to trace.
November’s here and folks look back to what heroes have bought.
They stood as one as things looked black, courageous as they fought.

* The Cross Of Christ

The jeering crowd like jackals stood,
To see what must be done.
Though once they thought this man was good,
They didn't see God's Son.

* The Prince Of Prints

Behold the precious Prince of Prints,
By wildlife he is stirred!
Yet who is he who uses tints?
Mr Stephen Gayford!

* I Am An Elephant!

It's true, I am an elephant!
In fact, I've always been!
I've got this trunk way up in front,
Stuck here, right in-between...

Pray Tell... What Proves The Weakest Link?

Pray tell... What proves the weakest link
For each new endeavour,
Beyond the fact, God helps us think
So we can be clever?

If You Love Jesus, Pray For Us!

If you love Jesus, pray for us!
We serve by night and day!
If you love Jesus, think of us!
That's always been our way!
