My Home, My Paradise

On this road I stand alone

Oh my lord, just carry me home

All my fibers and all my bones

Are yours if you take me home

How much more should I sacrifice?

Lead me Lord to paradise

I’ve brought my truths and no lies

Take me now to paradise

Give me shelter in your dome

Oh my lord just take me home

May my truth and faith suffice

Lead me now to paradise

The Curse Of The Lands

I surrender my heart

My body, my soul

My faith and my spirit

My one and my all

I surrender my trust

My power untried

My love and my wisdom

My freedom, my pride

I surrender my life

Put it all in your hands

Deliver me forever

From the curse of the lands

Not Within Me

I’ve been looking for Him
Everywhere I could
Beneath the stars, above land
In the deepest woods
Underneath the oceans
I seek Him day and night
Seek Him in the darkness
Seek Him in the light
Seek Him within me

Though it wasn’t easy
I found Him eventually
Almost like a fortuity
Stumbled ‘on casually
I found Him in the stones, I
Found Him in a dew
Saw Him in the wind, I
Saw Him affined to you
But not within me

Him I found all over
Except inside my heart
None of my veins had Him
Nor any other part
Was I breathing empty?
Felt a lot of pain
Stripped my soul and hunted
Only to find again
He’s not within me

Why Do They Worship You?

O’ God I fail to understand
Why do they worship You?
Is it because You’re beautiful
Or is it because You’re true?
Is it because they have a fear
Set deep within their hearts
That any little misdeed and You
Might tear their world apart?
Is it because You’re a mystery
About which we barely know?
Is it because You’re divine?
An omnipotent fellow?
Is it the herd mentality
Of following the crowd?
Is everyone uncomfortable
Or afraid to stand out?
Is it because we people
Are full of ego and pride?
Do we need a higher power
To keep it all inside?
Or is it because they feel
Their fates are in Your hands?
Why do they worship You?
God, I fail to understand
What if these people found out
There’s a higher authority?
Will they stop worshipping You
And start following me?

God’s Favourite Child

Paint it on my death bed

Paint it on my forehead

Paint it anywhere you want

Paint it as I’ve said

He handled my affairs

I’ve had my share of care

I know He always listened

He always answered my prayers

Keep me safe from harm

Keep me safe and warm

Call me in your tender home

Call me in your arms

He freed me from my chains

Kept me from sin and men

Pulled me through the darkest nights

So I’ll sing again

Paint it on my death bed

Paint it on my forehead

Paint it anywhere you want

Paint it as I’ve said

​Let Me In, Let Me In

Let me in, let me in

War’s about to begin

The hour cometh

The army’s marchin’

Let me in, let me in

I have done no single sin

Open up the gates now

Let me see what’s there within

Let me in, let me in

Hear me shoutin’ and screamin’

Save me from this torture

They want to burn my skin

Let me in, let me in

I’ve served my kith and kin

Read all of your scriptures

Come out and examine

Let me in, let me in

Every minute, I’m growing thin

I’m getting frail and tired

My body is achin’

Let me in, let me in

I deserve a place therein

I’d like to eat your fruits

And play the violin

Let me in, let me in

What am I missin’?

Eddie Price got in there

So did Catherine

Let me in, let me in

Silence is deafenin’

Bring out your arguments

Let’s see who finally wins

Let me in, let me in

I have done no single sin

Open up the gates now

Let me in, let me in

Let me in, let me in

War’s about to begin

The hour cometh

The army’s marchin’
