drinking a cup


drinking a cup
a taste of peace
sipping of the waters
of the river of life
spending time in worship
breathing in the word
a peace washes over me
spending time with the Lord

a place of worship


No more churches
dividing the peoples
not places of worship
but a place of worship
in the new city
in the kingdom of God

God’s glory will be the light
the gates will be open
there will be no darkness
the sheep will enter in
we will join with the angels
to sing glory to God

fed by the tree, by the river


we are fed by the tree,
by the river of life
God’s love overflows us
bringing us joy in life
the springs quench our thirst
the fruits feed our hunger
we are fed by the tree,
by the river of life

If we will believe


If we will believe
if we will but listen
God has so much to say
so much to share with us
God wants us to have joy
in this life now
If we will follow
where the Spirit guides us
if we will but walk
in the footsteps of Christ
God wants us to walk
in the steps He has written
before the world was begun
