To Be Emmanuel

So many live as captives to fear,
In a broken world that needs to hear,
That God is with them and God is near,
He is Emmanuel.

For this world is dying we can see its decay,
But we can change someone’s night to day,
All it takes is for us to be bold and say,
He is Emmanuel.

For God so loved  the world of mankind,
That He came down from heaven to seek, save and find,
And now God and man are forever entwined,
He is Emmanuel.

For He died, rose again and now reigns on high,
Believe even though it’s a mystery why,
Christ would suffer the cross and for sinners would die,
To be Emmanuel.

Black and Blue / Walk

Black and Blue

Piercing nails and crown of thorns,
The flesh torn from His back,
The Father could endure no more,
And turned the blue sky black.


Christ delivered us out of darkness,
Into His marvelous light,
And what He asks us in return,
Is walk by faith and not sight.

Mark Tinjum   –   2016

Light Cross

Oh the thought that the Holy One dwells in me
Is a blessing beyond all compare,
It makes the work light that He calls me to do
And the cross that He calls me to bear.

Authority – Light in the Shadow


When we abide in the Lord Jesus Christ,
We can speak with the utmost authority,
And when we stand fast in His Holy Word,
One plus God is a landslide majority.

Light in the Shadow

Identify the enemy’s lie,
A good friend said to me,
Bring it captive to Jesus Christ,
And His truth shall set you free.
See the darkness- flee the darkness,
Run to the light instead,
Abide in the shadow of Calvary’s cross,
Where God’s precious blood was shed.

Stand Alone Stanzas

Given, Not Taken

Our peace cannot be taken from us,
It can only be given away,
For our peace is a person,
The Lord Jesus Christ,
Who now lives in these vessels of clay.

Ephesians 2:14,  2 Corinthians 4:7

The Uttermost

We are saved by grace
Through faith in Christ
We have nothing in which to boast,
Except in the blood
Of the spotless Lamb
Who saves sinners to the uttermost.

Ephesians 2:8 & 9,  Galatians 6:14,  Hebrews 7:25

His Heart’s Desire

The King rode toward Jerusalem,
On the back of a donkey’s foal,
The masses thought He came to rule,
And to give them back control,
But as He reached Jerusalem,
He wept- they did not understand,
His mission was to set captives free,
Not from Rome but from Satan’s cruel hand,
The King could have set up His kingdom on earth,
In an instant- in the blink of an eye,
But He wanted instead to reign in man’s heart,
So alone He walked Calvary to die.

Mark. Tinjum   –   2015


I’m eternally grateful for what Christ did,
So floored that God’s own blood was shed,
That the sinless Lamb suffered Calvary’s cross,
When I should have hung there instead.
