The Lilly (Of Salvation)

Poem By Jesse Wood

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
From flower so precious, falls lone raindrop
Reminds all who love ye to praise thy name
Prince full of glory and love that shan't stop
Precious Lord Jesus ye healèd the lame
Lilies so white without blemish or mark
Son of the Father ye loosèd the chain
Heart led by peace, ye destroyed Prince of Dark
Death upon Calv’ry, left children unstained
Lilly that shines like the Halo of Lamb
Lord Jesus, descendant of Abraham

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.

Peaceful River

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

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.


Fair maiden with thy skin a milky hue.

Who rul'd kingdom forty years and more.
