A Pocket Full Of Proseys

#1
Chained


Chained to a rock; bound to the world
Born to this life; with no where to go.
What can I do to escape this pain
Of capture and slavery repeating again.

The world owned me
I thought it was home
I was set free
To choose on my own
I found a new house
Built on a rock
And it shelters me
Protecting its flock.

From out of the womb God spoke to me
He walked on earth so I could be freed. Lashed to a tree; to reverse the curse
Showed me LIFE and how to find rebirth

He shattered the rock and freed me from chains
So I could be free from death’s filthy stain.
This freedom I hold that nourishes my soul
Is not mine to own but his gift I behold.

Living for me, conflicts with his goal
Its not my life to live but my life he must own
When I’m in control on the wide path I flee
With total surrender HE lives in me.

The sparrow has clothes and is being fed
The flower grows strong planted in the right bed
The wind blows the bird its path coming clear
Returning it home where it is held dear.

Surrender
Lord guide my life today
Let my choices be true
Let my temptations make
My faith stronger in you
Give me wisdom Lord
With faith in your plan
To learn the trials I face
Make a better man
When I follow your path
Your Spirit guides me
To find stones of truth
Across a troubled sea
We go to a place
Only yours call home
A kingdom of love
Where no sin can roam
When I was born anew
I sought salvation Lord
Your love appealed to me
Although the way was hard
You called my name that day
I felt the lion’s roar
Exhilaration inside
To escape sins I wore
I didn’t know what it meant
That flutter in my heart
Love, peace, and joy you sent
The strength to do my part
You sent a guiding light
A beacon in the dark
Christ your begotten son
Called me to do your work
Lord give me strength I beg
Let my actions be true
Sincerely living my life
To guide the lost to you
When I learn to love
The way you teach us Lord
No judgment passed through me
Living the gifts of your word
Not the words I speak
But the way I live
Please use my life Lord
It’s all I have to give
Seek and you’ll see
Look and you’ll find
Ask the questions you need
And let the Lord provide
It’s not my life to live
Lord I’m only your tool
Put your hand on me
To help others know your Rule.
