YOUR MUSIC LIFTS ME UP…by Carl Gooch

Your Music Lifts me Up
The notes may waver as a tear creeps in,
But His songs I will sing again and again.
Overcome by feeling sometimes I pause,
I see His pain and I know I’m the cause.
A cloud of sorry lingers in the refrain,
As I sing praises to His Holy name.
This man carried my sorrow and shame,
The Lord most High has called me by name.
My heart sings out to my heavenly Host,
Filled with the Spirit; the Holy Ghost.
His kingdom promised, His love so near,
There’s nothing in this world that I’ll fear.
Let my heart be open as I sing out loud,
I’ll not be quieted by the worldly crowd.
In times of trouble or in time of pain
Let me be found praising you name.
Sometimes in quiet, in my sacred place,
My heart sings and I feel your embrace.
I eat the bread and drink from your cup,
Your music surrounds me and lifts me up.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
