You wrote words, 

That crossed human hearts. 

United us, 

Made us feel;

We’ve all been hurt and broken, 

Your words understood. 


A heartfelt —

Song to carry on, 

Though you’ve gone, 

On with the —

Lord of song where you sing your



We felt your —

Loss in the words left, 

Behind in, 

Your songs;

Poetry style, your lyrics, 

Wrote for all. 


But mostly, 

We feel more pain, you’re

gone; we feel —

Your absence–

Clear; as baffled King David, 

Who wrote Psalms. 


A cold and —

A broken cry to —

God; we sang —

Your tune, said —

Hallelujah, through all —

Our our pain. 


Praising God, 

Joyfully when wrecked. 



Saying Hallelujah

Lord guide us. 


Though love in —

Life, tears us apart, 

We still say, 

Your words wrote —

Hallelujah –every

Single breath. 


Myself I —

Know when I’m —

Shredded in —

My heart, I cry to God at night, 



I praise him, 

When I’m miserable, 

I praise him, 

When I’m glad, 

Truthfully, I lift my voice —

Most when sad. 


You’re gift of 

Song, one day —

I’ll hear more, 

In heavens —

Grace; our ardent praises ring, 



We’ll sing on, 

Or praises loud clear, 

No more pain,

No crying. 

Paradise not haulting joy —

      Thanks so much. It’s one of my favourite songs. He was a brilliant poet/writer/singer all in one.

        Actually all of the blogs are on the one site now because it was too crazy trying to manage 4 blogs, each with their own website. The four individual blogs were closed down by me. The Personal Blog entries are now under “Personal Thoughts” on the menu. 🙂
