A Tender Message Of Hope For These Times

A Message of Hope

In the early Spring peeps begin to sing after the radio thaws
a message of hope to help you cope comes into view
vested as a treasure that's inside of me and you
love has a funny way of showing to where you are really going
used to be a head of the class as if a clown no one wanted me around
inside I live with shattered dreams filtered through such evil schemes
the impulse of letting go bust up the beat to ncrease its tempo
there is a song in my heart gives one an inner longing to impart
I see solace as inside my dream of another world planned
from a heavenly arm of its higher power vested for honor
alone I stare at the wall then at the back of my mind i hear my conscience call
there is such a place a world to unfold but its not here so I shed a single tear
to help numb the inner pain as i slowly go insane in this rap game
folding chairs out on the patio telling me where I need to go

A whole host of believers will soon discover its heavenly delights
walk on streets of gold see the tree of life no more pain nor strife
come with me to such a world among your Peyton place filled up with disgrace
sun lights all the day so we pray with words in tongues of fire sought out in its desire
those young & old will enter in a new place which to humbly begin again
away from the worry why are we in such a hurry to even change the story
living up in glory with Jesus, Mary & John together we can sing along
never will there ever be again sick or dying we can put a stop to all our trying in its manifestation of fullness...
Everyday is another chance to take part in the dance
Every time we pray an angels takes it in their wings into flight
Although very few will see this place to taste and dine with the master
together we will forever bask in the vast expanse between time and space
never darkness cause Christ will be our visible light along this pilgrimage plight
forget the night and the day is far too spent have we made a single dent

To tell the gospel story to untold millions who haven't heard
all is solely based upon God in his Holy word
tucked away inside our tender hearts to impart a right choice to rejoice
one step closer of seeing the one we had crucified up there with all our pride
although those many years have passed I have every bit of reason to ask
what is your condition of your heart to impart
how is your attitude are you fully in the right mood
peeps in the streets are running wild all to embrace the infant child
On Christmas time all the faces will shine filled up with hope and understanding
so why we even worrying or hurrying when the savior has the plan you understand
Fancy suits with big fat cigars need to be tossed aside as you sing those bars
Flirting with disaster never prepared to face the great here after
it all starts with a choice then a seed to unfold in time roots will grow
only one life is soon to be passed only what's done out of love will last
stand firm until the very end until you walk side by side with my friend (JESUS).
