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.

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.

Impossible, Amazing, Wonderful

It’s impossible to fathom,
Too amazing to comprehend,
Why the holy High King of the Universe,
Would die to call me His friend.

It’s too wonderful to imagine,
It defies all logical and reason,
That God welcomes into His family,
Ones like me who committed high treason.

Mark Tinjum   2017

NKJV  Romans 5:10
For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.



Even Though

They scorned Him, mocked Him, called Him names,
And did not believe His works or claims,
As He raised the dead and gave sight to the blind,
And was merciful, gracious, good and kind,
Though they deemed Him deserving of a cruel death,
He forgave their hated with His dying breath,
For they knew not the gravity of what they had done,
By killing God’s precious and dearly loved Son,
But to all who draw near with a repentant heart,
He gives abundant mercy, and a brand-new start.

Mark Tinjum   2017

NKJV  1Pe 1:3  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

I Listened

I sat beside a friend of mine,
And listened to his tale of lament,
I didn’t say many profound words,
And later asked the Lord why I was sent,
He replied in return, “You did what I asked,”
“You listened and you were a friend,”
“You were an extension of me and I am pleased,”
“By the listening ear that you lend.”

Mark Tinjum  2017

Jas 1:19  NKJV
So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath;

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

Long Before

Jesus knew from eternity,

Long before time on earth began,

That to ransom His dearly loved children,

He would have to become fully Man,

Long before sin came to plague mankind,

Before Satan tempted Adam and Eve,

Jesus knew He would have to descend from His throne,

And suffer for those who believe, 

So the God-Man Jesus the Servant King,

Laid His full weight of glory aside,

That man would not live forever in sin,

Nor in shame and fear cower and hide.
