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,


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:

Awake! Arise!

“My kingdom has come!”  The Redeemer cries,
“Awake from your slumber and open your eyes!”
“You’re no longer a prisoner, come forth, arise!”
“You’ve been freed forever, my treasure, my prize!”

Mark Tinjum  2017

Ephesians 5:14 NKJV
[14] Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.”

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.



Certain and Near

Time to time sin may cause me to stumble,
But in Christ sin has lost its death grip,
For I walk hand-in-hand with the Savior,
Who steadies me lest I should slip,
And while death is still a cruel enemy,
It’s an enemy I need not fear,
For Christ has crushed the serpent’s head,
And his end is both certain and near.

Mark Tinjum   2017

Hebrews 2:14-15 NKJV

[14] Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, [15] and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

Cling to the King / Open

Cling to the King

He’s a merciful God,
Heaven’s gracious King,

He rules by love,
He felt deaths’ sting,

He reigns on high,
Praise and worship bring,

As we trust and obey,
And to Jesus Christ cling.

Mark Tinjum  2017

Psa 116:5  Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; Yes, our God is merciful.


Christ’s death opened wide the front door,
Of my Fathers great heavenly house,
And I want to obey and honor Him,
As I live out the truth I espouse.

Mark Tinjum   2017

Joh 14:21  He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

Abundant and Eternal

Abundant life in the here and now,
Eternal life here and hereafter,
All by Christ’s life, death and rising again,
To all who make Him Savior and Master.

For Jesus is the One and only One,
Who can save us from sin, death and hell,
And we’re called to witness to what He has done,
It’s His gospel of grace we must tell.

Mark Tinjum  2017

Mat 1:21  And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.”



I’d be happy to be servant,
At the Master’s great wedding feast,
To wait on my blessed Redeemer,
And the saints from the greatest to least,
When earth’s four corners come together,
Saints from north, south, west and east,
God will welcome His dearly loved children home,
On that day when all evil has ceased.

Mark Tinjum  –  2017

Revelation 19:9 NKJV
[9] Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'” And he said to me, “These are the true sayings of God.”
