How I long for you

Sunday, 5 November 2017

How I long for you to envelope me
To be in your presence day by day
Struck by your awesomeness and
To be renewed no matter what
Comes my way

I long to become deeper still
to fall down on my knees
knowing you are at the centre
for only you alone my heart
could fill

I desire to be in prayer often
To be able to talk with you
And listen to the voice
Who regularly calls out my name
my heart softens

I don’t deserve to be near you
To be enveloped in your arms
Do I have the right to call you Lord?
I fail so miserably always
In all I do

There are times I find it so hard
To be near you to even feel your
Presence no matter what I do
My soul thirst for you, longs for you
This isn’t a fa├žade

I so desire to learn all your ways
To become so enthralled in
Your company, what more could I ask
Than to be enveloped often
In your embrace

So I turn to you with a heavy heart
And crying deep within my soul
Abba Father, hear me when I call
Only to me alone could you
Alone possibly impart

Your voice of wisdom is all I ask
To reach deep inside me whenever
I call upon your name even though
This maybe sometimes be in vain
I want this to last

So more and more I long to
Fall down on my knees
To be more than to just simply be
So I call out to you in all and
Everything I do

Grannie Annie

Tuesday, 31 October 2017



This poem is about a wonderful lady so dear
If only she could listen and maybe just hear
The things that people love about her just so
She had so many friends but as I recall no foe’s
So down to earth and lovely to behold
There was more to her than just her weight in gold

You were the rock to which everyone turned
Your God helped you through everything you had learned
Though you were happy in all that you did
There was nothing whereby you wanted to get rid
The days seemed always brighter with you around
You were no fool and you were nobody’s clown

You loved playing the piano and organ which you did so well
You were the top of your league and people thought you were swell
You were slow to anger and so rich in love
Your love shined through so richly empowered from above
Peacemaker so thoughtful and so true
There was nothing it seemed, no nothing you couldn’t do

You shined far above others who put you to various tests
Your faith was your stronghold and now is your ultimate rest
Granny Annie you were known by from those far and wide
There was not a soul out there, no, no one you couldn’t abide
You were modest throughout your life for all to see
You deserve to be happy now, and you had everything down to a T.

You were there for everyone’s needs
I remember you wearing your many colourful beads
Dressed always so smartly wherever you went
You were always so happy and more than content
You were a wife, mother, grandmother and friend
You stood alongside everyone right to the end

May you be at peace now my friend so dear
For you are one person to whom I adhered
You were there for all of my needs
You were indeed a friend so rich who sowed so many seeds
I am so honoured to have been a tiny part of your life
Now where you are may there no longer be any pain or strife

Forever And A Day

Saturday, 14 October 2017


Unto you alone do I open up my heart
Unto you alone I know we will never be apart
For since I gave my life to you
I know that we aren’t through
For ever and a day I’ll be by your side

Unto you alone I will do my very best
Unto you alone be assured I’ll not rest
For I am yours and you are mine
And I know everything will be fine
For ever and a day I’ll be by your side

Unto you alone there is nothing to hide
Unto you alone I’m not just here for the ride
For I am here no words to play
And for me there’s so much more to say
For ever and a day I’ll be by your side

Unto you alone there is nothing more to fear
Unto you alone please know I am always here
I will never let you go
Because you need to know I love you so
For ever and a day I’ll be by your side

Unto you alone this story never ends
Unto you alone I will do my best not to offend
For you alone are my rock
There are many building blocks
For ever and a day I’ll be by your side

Unto you alone I cannot wait to go home
Unto you alone the heavens I will roam
My journey has just begun
There are no more places to run
For ever and a day I’ll be by your side

I'm dancing in the rain

Thursday, 3 August 2017


I can hear you from a distance
Wishing you were here at my insistence
Where clouds seem to be moving on slowly
The look in your eyes is much to coldly
But still I’m dancing in the rain

Forever and a day by your side
There seems to be nowhere I can hide
Wherever I go folly seems to take place
At the end of the day this isn’t just a race
But still I’m dancing in the rain

I’m dancing in the rain
Day and night this feels insane
But what have I got to lose
If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t choose

The day just seems to be getting better
But I guess I can’t keep an eye on this weather
It can rain all day and rain all night
Well I guess I need to go and take flight
But still I’m dancing in the rain

This is how the story goes
Wherever it will end nobody knows
But still I’m happy to give it a shot in the dark
Even so I am going have to be up before the lark
But still I’m dancing in the rain


I’m dancing in the rain
Day and night this feels insane
But what have I got to lose
If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t choose

So yes, I’m dancing in the rain
If it’s all the same

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

Forever and a day

Sunday, 9 July 2017


My heart cries out to you Lord
Crying out in the rain of the day
Pouring out my heart to you
Just give me strength to see your face

You restore me Lord
I hold on to you forever
You take my breath away Lord
You restore me forever and a day

Falling on my knees before you
I bow down before your throne
In desperation, I reach out
And call out into the distance

You restore me Lord
I hold onto you forever
You take my breath away Lord
You restore me forever and a day

I will always hold onto you
And even when you seem so far
And I can’t seem to reach you
I know you are always there

You restore me Lord
You just take my breath away
Even when I can’t seem to take
The day ahead any longer
you restore me Lord
forever and a day

Every Nation will bow before my name from Psalm 46

Monday, 1 May 2017


Come to me my child
Wont you sit down awhile
Wont you be still
Wont you be silent
And rest awhile
My child

Be still and know who I am
That I am the Son of Man
And will forever be
By your side
All day and night
Be strong

Every nation will bow before my name
Nothing will ever be the same
I will be honoured far and wide
For my Father, He is my guide
Forever and ever
Forever and ever
Amen

Though the heavens thunder
I will never be asunder
From my God
He is my rock
He reigns in me
Forever more

Every nation will bow before me
Each tribe and distant tongue
For soon my time will come
To reign on earth again
Nothing will be the same
On earth again

Just surrender and abide in me
Rest awhile and simply be
For I am the God of Israel
I will claim her land again
I will reign
Forever and a day

Every nation will bow before my name
Nothing will ever be the same
I will be honoured far and wide
For my Father, He is my guide
Forever and ever
Forever and ever
Amen

Be Still

Monday, 1 May 2017


Be still and know that I am here
For always I am forever near
If you call upon my name
Rest assured that I will hear
Be still

Be Still, take time to rest
Listen to the birds in their nest
Just singing their mother’s song
Just know there is no second best
Be still

Be still and take time to grow
In my presence you will know
That I am here forever
Through you my seeds I sow
Be still

For I am your refuge and strength
In times of trouble
In times of need and times of joy
Just know that you will not crumble
For as you seek me
You will find me wherever you are
Just through me you will simply
Be still

Be still, come sit awhile at my feet
Listen, come to me and meet
With me in worship
For through this worship there is no defeat
Be still

Be still and know that I am God
I wont beat you with an iron rod
If you wander array
Under my feet you will not be trod
Be still

Be still and listen to my voice
To grow in me there’s no other choice
Take heed and listen to my words
Take time and with me rejoice
Be still

It's Just Another Day

Thursday, 27 April 2017

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah 

I’m feeling kind of lonely
But that’s not to say
That I am not forever homely
With you by my side
I have nothing to hide

It’s just another day here
What can I say
Please do me another turn dear
And play me another tune
I’ve got nothing to lose

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah 

What can I say – it’s just another day
Nothing changes around here
Cause for now it’s going my way
It’s all for a good cause baby
For now things are good, maybe

Hey ha hey ha  etc
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah etc

With the rushing wind
There’s time to change
I’m forever running
Forever burning
But hey nothing remains the same

Yeah etc

Take Delight In Me: Based from Psalm 37

Thursday, 27 April 2017

Be still my child, hearken unto my voice
Can you not hear, can you not see
So listen to me, take heed and rejoice
Let your heart be still for now and always
To hear my words, you have no other choice

Do not be afraid for I am always here
You are not to worry about other’s intentions
Feel my thoughts coming from the atmosphere
For my child I am here for you now and ever more
I am always with you as I am forever near

Take delight in me my child
Take my hand and walk with me
Through the green glades you will forever be
By my side you will be in the land and prosper
So take delight in me my child

For the strength of the wicked will be shattered
If they do not take heed to my voice
They will forever be bruised and battered
No more will they feel the drops of rain
For it will be that thy people will be scattered

I will I promise make steps for my very own
As I delight in every detail of your being
You will one day I assure you head to my throne
For this day is coming I assure you
For judgement day is coming and the wicked will groan

Take delight in me my child
Take my hand and walk with me
Through the green glades you will forever be
By my side you will be in the land and prosper
So take delight in my child

I will endeavour to keep you safe always
For this I promised from the very beginning
Any evil in this land I will keep far away
Far from you as I treasure your innermost being
This world will one day be a memory a distant phase

So my child take delight in me
For your King I will forever be
No sticks or stones will break my bones
For in me you will worship and you alone

What do you do?

Thursday, 27 April 2017


Do you manage to find time to pray
To me each and every day
Do you find my way isn’t your style
Maybe you just go your own sweet way
What do you do?

Do you manage to read My Word
Or is this for you too absurd
Or do you just sit and be still awhile
Or are you too busy on your mobile
What do you do?

What do you do my child
You see I know you inside out
Maybe to seek me for you is too wild
Or perhaps you’re full of doubt
It’s not just about towing the line
But it’s about taking the time
To walk and talk and be with me
Throughout each and every day

Do you just pretend I’m not there
And go your own merry way
Or do you hang around and just stare
Into nothing but empty space
What do you do?

Do you just think I don’t know
What you do with all your time
Maybe your too busy with your beau
To spend enough time with me
What do you do?

What do you do my child
You see I know all there is to see
You can’t run away and hide
Behind those big fancy trees
Maybe it’s about time
You just faced the truth
It’s not just about towing the line
It’s about your daily life
And giving up your time
And following me
So I ask you one more time -  what do you do?
