Now and Then

Whether lamenting in the grip of sorrow or sadness,
Or praising the Lord and rejoicing with gladness,

Like the psalms of David both now have their place,

And God can use both to show mercy and grace.


But a new day will dawn and is coming soon,

When all sadness and sorrow will cease,

And the meek shall inherit a kingdom on earth,

And delight in abundance of peace.


Mark Tinjum – 2017

Psalm 37:11  NKJV
But the meek shall inherit the earth, And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.



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

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!

Mark Tinjum   –   2017

What Did I Do?

What did I do to deserve a God,
As patient and loving as You?
Nothing is the word that comes to mind,
It’s because You are faithful and true.
What did You ever see in my life,
Except for the wreckage and mess?
Lord I’m so glad to have a God like You,
Who is moved by my pain and distress.

What did I ever do dear Lord,
To deserve such wondrous grace?
Such lavish love and mercy,
That You willingly died in my place?
Why did You grant such great favor,
To one so unworthy as I?
Praise, glory and honor to Jesus,
Is my joyful and humble reply.

Born and Declared

Born of the seed of David,
Declared to be Son of God,
Rightful Ruler of heaven and earth,
Whom angels worship and laud.

Lion of the tribe of Judah,
Sinless Savior- God’s Passover Lamb,
Alpha- Omega, Beginning and End,
God Almighty and Great I AM.

Charting the Course

We chart the course of our destiny
By setting our sights above,
Walking with God in humility
And with our fellow man in love,
For our vessels are weak and the storms often fierce
That threaten to shipwreck our soul,
And gale force winds of trouble and pain
Often batter and take their toll,
But keeping our eyes on the Bright Morning Star
The voyage grows clearer each day,
For He guides us to heaven’s beautiful shore
Calming storms that we face on the way,
And when we reach the heavenly port
And Christ calls us, “Beloved, enter in!”
How to thank the Captain of our souls enough,
We won’t even know where to begin!

Mark Tinjum   –   2016

Lord Please

Lord please make my life a sweet song,
That You would be pleased to sing,
A harmony and a melody,
That is fit for the Kings of kings,
Lord may you be pleased to rejoice over me,
With a song only you and I know,
May my life be a hymn of worship to You,
In tune with the grace You bestow,
And when the final note is sung out,
On this shadow world down here below
I’m so glad I will have all eternity,
To find new ways to praise and extol!
