Where has the time gone?

Saturday, 22 July 2017



I can’t believe it’s been almost a year
Since I went and left you behind
With it has come unknown fear
Of unspoken promises
 life oh boy it can be so unkind

I have cried many tears through this time
Wishing in some ways I’d stayed
But leaving it felt such a bind
Of times gone by
Oh how I so often prayed

Where has the time gone
It seemed to be dragging along
There’s no words to this song
Leaving at times it feels so wrong

I chose to leave it was better this way
But I feel so often lost and empty inside
What more is there to say
If only we could turn back the clock
But there’s nowhere left to hide

So often I have felt so alone
Where bitterness raged
So often I have wished I could go back home
There have been feelings of strife
And I’ve felt like an animal caged

Where has the time gone
It seemed to be dragging along
There’s no words to this song
Leaving at times it feels so wrong

I can’t believe it’s been almost a year
But now I have to move on
Going forward I can but shed a tear
Leaving the past behind
I have no choice but to remain strong

I realise that no one can change the past
Not me, not you or anyone near
I have my faith which is strong and will last
Through the good and the bad
And with Jesus through
Each and every passing year

You surround me with your love - based on Psalm 23

Monday, 17 July 2017


I am a child of God
And as I wander through the valleys
I see you there
Complete in me
You surround me with your love

I surrender to you
As I rest in the green meadows
All the days of my life
In your fullness
You surround me with your love

You surround me with your love
And you are there
Hour by hour
Day by day
You surround me with your love

You are close beside me
Your rod and your staff comfort me
No matter what
I have your joy
You surround me with your love

You prepare a feast for me
In the presence of my enemies
you anoint me
with your oil
you surround me with your love

my cup overflows with blessings
I know your love will pursue me
All my days
In every way
You surround me with your love

You surround me with your love
And you are there
Hour by hour
Day by day
I will live in your house forever and ever

I surrender all

Wednesday, 12 July 2017



I surrender all
To you my precious saviour
I life up my voice in awe
To you my Lord and king
You are my one desire
For you are my everything

I surrender all
And come to you right now
I give in to your call
And wait upon your timing Lord
I kneel before your throne
Every moment that I can

I surrender all
For you are my reason
Before you I stand tall
I can’t wait to worship you
To lift my voice to you
Always, forever always

You are the one
That I must rely on
You are the one
Where there are constant thoughts of you
In all I do
I seek you
I find you
I call you by name
For you are my one and only desire

I surrender all
Unto you alone my king
There are no more hitting walls
Whereby I can no longer feel the pain
How I long for you
You are my rock alive for evermore

You are the one
That I must rely on
You are the one
Where there are constant thoughts of you
In all I do
I seek you
I find you
I call you by name
For you are my one and only desire
