Salvation Stanzas, Reasons and Rhymes

allHis – because it is!

at the foot of the cross

On Display

Precious beyond
All earthly compare
The blood my God shed
Saved man from despair
To release Satan’s prisoners
Who were held in cruel sway
At the cross won the victory
Ushered in a new day
One day lion with lamb
Will frolic and play
And a child will lead them
God’s shalom on display

MT 2018

 

Lord, More

I want to grow more in love with You Lord,
More than life and breath itself,
More than all earthly pleasure and treasure,
More than all kingly riches and wealth.
For in finding you King Jesus,
We find who we’re meant to be,
And abiding in Your holy Word,
Sets the heart, mind and spirit free!

MT   2018

Love

Love loves,
Love listens,
Love of the Savior,
With new life christens.

Love of the Savior,
Love that dries tears,
Love that gives comfort,
Love that calms fears.

Love new each morning,
Love new each night,
Love crowned with glory,
Love robed in light.

Love full of pleasure,
Love full of peace,
Love is eternal,
Love’s wedding feast.

Mark Tinjum  –  2018

1Co 13:13
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Waves and Whispers

The heavens cannot contain Him,
Nor temples made by man’s hand,
The waves bow in silence before Him,
The wind heeds His call and command.

Trees blossom at His whisper,
Snow falls with a wave of His hand,
He names each star in the heavenly host,
And numbers the seashore sand.

Mark Tinjum-  2018

I Am Here / Was and Will Be

I am here, Lord
Help me hear, Lord

Please come near, Lord
Wipe my tear, Lord

Make me pure, Lord
Conscience clear, Lord

You’re the cure, Lord
No more fear, Lord.


Was and Will Be

I’m not who I was, nor who I will be,
I am someone and somewhere between,
The man that I see in the mirror looking back,
And the new man inside that’s unseen.

Mark Tinjum-   2018

1 Corinthians 15:49 NKJV
[49] And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.

 

You and Yours

It’s You and Yours
Who redeems and restores,
It’s You and Yours
My heart truly adores,
It’s You and Yours
My soul seeks and explores,
It’s You and Yours
From which ceaseless grace pours.

Mark Tinjum – 2018

Romans 11:36 NKJV
[36] For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.

Stand Alone Stanzas

Whispers and Thunder

Sometimes the Almighty whispers,
Other times His voice booms like thunder,
Knowing God condescends to speak to men,
Fills my heart with sheer joy and pure wonder.

John 10:27  NKJV  My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.


Stars and Scars

He’s as close as the softest whisper,
Yet as far as the most distant stars,
He is shrouded in a cloud of unknowing,
Yet revealed through Calvary’s cruel scars.

Eph 3:8  NKJV  To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,


Self-Made

If our self-made kingdoms
Came crashing down,
Where would our help
And our hope be found?

Mark Tinjum   2017

Mat 7:26 NKJV  “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:
