Brand New Day

When once heart and soul were eclipsed by sin,
Now in Christ the dark night is gone,
As evening gives way to morning,
As dusk breaks into dawn,
From the softest glow of twilight,
To the fullness of noonday sun,
The light of the world now shines through us,
And a bright new day has begun!

Mark Tinjum.  2015

John 8:12 NKJV

[12] Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.


Never Hopeless

Christ seeks out with zeal and passion,
God’s lost and straggling sheep,
He never grows faint or weary,
Never pauses to rest or sleep,
He never says it is too difficult,
Not even the most hopeless cases,
And all who repent and ask Him in,
Jesus loves and accepts and embraces.

Mark Tinjum  –  2016

Sometimes Always

My mind is sometimes filled with doubt,
My heart sometimes filled with fears,
My soul is sometimes tempest tossed,
And my eyes sometimes well up with tears.

But my mind is always at peace and rest,
And my heart always courage filled,
When the Savior sows His seeds of truth,
In the soil the Spirit has tilled.

Mark Tinjum   –   2016

To Express / No Stains-No Chains

To Express

To tell of all that my God has done,
The glory of His dearly beloved Son,
No human words can fully express,
Christ’s gift of love and righteousness.

Mark Tinjum  –  2017

No Stains- No Chains

Only the blood
Of Jesus Christ
Can cleanse our deep
Crimson stains,
And only His rising
From the grave
Can free us from
Shackles and chains.

Mark Tinjum   –   2015


It’s astounding to think that a man like me,

Filled with failures and faults and flaws,

Who has broken not only my Father’s heart,

But also His covenant and laws,

That a sheep who strayed so far from the way,

Once entangled and captive to sin,

Could come to become God’s dearly loved son,

One Christ treasures and calls His true kin.


Mark Tinjum. –  2017


Risen Savior
Lamb once slain
Proved true every
Word and claim
Risen Lord
Reigning King
Coming again
Rejoice and sing!

Mark Tinjum   –   2017


Songs of praise,
Echo in my mind,
In them the joy,
Of heaven I find.

Songs of deliverance,
Songs of salvation,
Songs of peace,
Songs of jubilation.

Songs that bring hope,
To the heart of man,
Songs that reveal,
God’s redemption plan.

Songs of the Father,
The Spirit and Son,
Songs of the battle,
And the victory Christ won!
