Whatever It Takes Lord

Poem By Royston Nella

Whatever it takes Lord, Your will is best
my spirit's in turmoil and I cannot rest.
For sin permeates through me affecting my soul
and I'm in need of cleansing to make me whole.

Whatever it takes Lord, hold nothing back
for I have slipped away becoming so slack.
It is best that I face up to what I have done
I've grieved Your Spirit and wounded Your Son.

Whatever it takes Lord, I deserve all I get.
My sin everbefore me won't let me forget.
So I kneel down before You in penitence bow
needing Your help to work it through somehow.

Whatever it takes Lord, Do not spare me the pain
for this sinful life of mine has hurt You again.
I wish to confess these evil deeds I deplore
and walk back in fellowship with You once more.

Whatever it takes Lord, I want to let them go
these sins that I've been chasing hinder me so.
I wish to put these evil desires behind me
so that I can be the person You want me to be.

Whatever it takes Lord, I'll face up to the costs
for it will be worth it to remove all the dross.
To lift the great burden and free me up to show
the fruit of Your Spirit and like You to grow.

So I kneel at your feet Lord, it's all I can do
confessing my sin and my sorrow to you.
Wash me and cleanse me, Lord Jesus I pray
and help me to stay close beside you today.

Whatever it took my child, I've paid the price
when I laid down My life in sacrifice.
Whatever it took my child, I was willing to give.
when upon the cross I cried, "Father forgive."

Love Took The Cup

Love took the cup
and drank it up.
It's empty now for me.

Open Me Up - I Can Speak For Myself

Look not for hidden codes or formulae,
for I have more important things to say.
I speak of One: the Creator of all things
and prophesy what the future brings.

Morning Glory

As I gaze out of my window I see
each new morning a fresh bloom greeting me.
With its purple trumpets clarion call
proclaiming joy and peace to one and all.

The Child Of The Past

I see you crying and I feel your tears,
the sorrow and anguish of so many years.
Such senseless abuse and wanton ill treatment
of someone so young and so innocent!


I looked into the mirror today
and I just did not know what to say.
For the person looking back at me
was the man I had turned out to be.

Only Love Is The Answer

Greater love has no man
than the love I have for you.
For you're such a lovely woman
to love me as you do.
