To Live and Die

If I live I live to Christ,
If I die Christ I gain,
And when I see Him face to face,
He’ll erase my tears and pain.

Mark Tinjum   –   2015

Clay / Dust


I’m a poor weak foolish vessel,
A broken jar fashioned out of clay,
That God in His infinite mercy and grace,
Is patiently teaching His way.


We the ransomed and redeemed of the Lord,
Who in God place faith and trust,
Are earthen vessels, jars of clay,
Precious children and dearly loved dust.

Mark Tinjum   –   2016


Shalom Israel

God says pray for the peace of Israel,
But not just for their physical border,
That their hearts would receive the Prince of Peace,
Who alone gives shalom and brings order.

Pledge of Allegiance / Vacation or Vocation?

Pledge of Allegiance

I owe my existence
And allegiance to One,
Who died on a cross
To make a rebel His son.

Vacation or Vocation?

God did not call us on this earth
To live life a permanent vacation,
We are called to be light to a darkened world,
Ambassadors of Christ our vocation.

Mark Tinjum  –   2016

Never Forsaken

If you ever think
You have reached the end,
No one standing by you
To aid or defend,
When all forsake you
No comfort they send,
There is One who stands closer
Than a brother or friend.

Mark Tinjum   –   2015



It’s not just the astonishing number of stars,
But the vastness of distance between,
That leads me to bow down and worship in awe,
Before Lord God Almighty unseen.

Mark Tinjum   –   2015

Alone to Atone

Our Great God and Savior
Walked Mount Calvary alone
Knowing only His blood
Could fully atone
For mankind’s high treason
And the sins of all men
And to make a straight path
To the Father again.

Mark Tinjum   –   2016
