Eternal Word

Eternal Word
Creator of time and space
God says - it is
Exact Image
Perfect Representation
Son
Re-creation enabled
Firstborn among many to follow
New creations
in Christ

Eternal Word
Come to dwell
Immanuel
God with us
Jesus

Eternity invades time
Eternal Word
made flesh
for us

When the Walls Fell

When the Walls fell
The horns were blowing
And there was a yell
After Israel’s going
Round the city


When the bricks crashed
The trumpets sounded
With the towers dashed
All the stones were grounded
Round the city


But it wasn’t the rumbling
It wasn’t the band
That resulted in crumbling
Of the walls into sand


It was all from the promise
From the grace of the Word
And the vow still applies
To all those who have heard


For there are no walls
That God can’t breach
There are no captives
That He can’t reach
There is no fortress
No castle no cave
From which God is
Unable to save


This hope is built
On stronger stuff
Because God is
ALWAYS enough





(c) 2017 Brian David Kelley - inspired by Joshua 6

Hello God

Hello God

_____________________________________________________

VERSE ONE
Hello God  Are You there? Really listening?
Have you gone away?  Is there something that you’re missing
Do you hear my cry? Do you feel my pain?
Please tell me why. Am I praying in vain?


VERSE TWO
I’m feeling lost, empty in desperation
Can’t handle the cost, can’t deal with my situation
Carry the weight, carry the burden
Don’t make me wait - oh God I’m hurting!


BRIDGE
Take it Away. Take it Away. Take it Away
Please take it away. Take it away,  take me away


VERSE THREE
I know your pain I too have been abandoned
Beaten and shamed, left all alone and stranded
Nailed to a tree, naked and lonely
My God, My God! Why have you forsaken Me?!


VERSE FOUR
Treated like dirt, all who I love departed
I know you’re hurt, I have been brokenhearted
I know your pain, I hear your cry
To redeem you I came,to redeem you I died


OUTRO

Hi, this is God  Yes - I am really listening

Besser Machen

Ich schaffe es nicht alleine zu bezahlen
Nicht mal ein winziges Teil davon
Kann ich etwas besser machen

Es ist nicht nur kaputt und reparierbar
Es ist nicht nur verbrochen  besser zu machen
Es ist tot und nur die Wunder der Auferstehung
Kann es besser machen

am Anfang - alles Verloren
Perfektion wird auf einmal zerstört
Gemeinsames miteinander wird Versteckspiel
Himmel trennt sich von die Erde

The wrath of God, demonstrated against what God so hates - all that separates those whom He created in His image from himself - has to be paid. The relationship where all was very good is broken.


Men look to a world in which they can be god, continuing to believe the great deception, The Lie. But God will send the personified Truth, the eternal Life...
