I have sown thistles

I have sown thistles for too long
What is my new me?
I’ve stood in the rain
(inside)
The water dries up
In the valley of tears
Flood of sand
Who can enclose the darkness?
I long for the one who died for me and now lives

In the shadow of your wings

The sun is shining
on the folded hands
I’m only dust

The curtain of the sky
Torn apart
The head is filled
With your word
The day sleeps no longer
Waiting for the lamb
On my knees
I’m lying
In the shadow
Of your wings

Only you, Lord can quench
The thirst
In my soul
Eternal you
You, the only God
You are my life and my light
You are who you are

Get up

Rain
tiredness
I can’t feel myself
A bird flies into the window
The body is a stone
Don’t wanna get up
The cold fingers
Write no more
I’m tired and hungry
I can’t do anything
Headache, autumn storm, October rain, moving mess and emptiness
I am powerless

Kyrie Eleison

I just remembered a song I wrote in Danish  a year ago even though I’m not a song writer. I’ve translated the song. Let’s praise the Lord!

 

We praise you (Kyrie Eleison)

I praise you
I honor you
Jesus
Wake up my country
Heal our hearts
You are the only way
You are the only way

You’ve done everything for us
In sweat, tear, pain and blood
You gave your life for us
Have mercy with us
Forgive us
Our darkness
Forgive us
We did not see you
Forgive us
We only sought ourselves

Jesus, we need you
We thirst for you
Holy ghost,
Water our wasteland
May your word bear fruits in us
May we turn around
May we look at you
Let our lives
Worship you
May our trust
Be a child’s
May we always worship you
May we always praise you

Let us seek your face
Let us call upon your name
Let us worship
Let us honor your name

May we always seek you
May we always praise you
You are the only way
You are the only way

 

 

Because of His blood

Behold the Lamb of God
Praise Him and give Him glory
You were far away, but He found you
and showed you His wounds
Because of His blood
you are released from the chains of your sins
and the chains of the law
Because of His blood
you are alive
Because of His blood
you are a new man
Because of His blood
His grace is sufficient for you
Because of His blood
the curtain of the temple was torn in two
and you can come boldly to the Father
Because of His blood
you are no longer a stranger or a foreigner
You are brought near to Him
Because of His blood
He lives inside you
Because of His blood
you are a fellow citizen with the saints
Because of His blood
you can rest in the green pastures
Because of His blood
you shall fear no evil
Because of His blood
your cup runs over with the oil of His goodness and mercy
Because of His blood
You will dwell in the house of the Father forever
Jesus is the cornerstone

You have peace
because of His blood

Cross
