The Lingering Question (Nothing Made Sense)

I travelled so far, to see you.
Went out of my way to meet you.
Spent all of sweat for you too,
I have no regrets, except when you

Told me but didn’t,
Why it couldn’t be.
Your vagueness it boggles
The mind inside me.

You said,

Nothing made sense,
Nothing was right,
Darlin’ I just want to hold you tonight.
Why is it wrong?
Tell me why is it strange?
Please tell me so I can make a change.
Even though it’s all gone now,
I’m left asking why,
With no answers, I look to the sky.

I’m left with these questions. I can’t get-
The answers at all, cause you left.
And now I’m alone, and you’re set,
Against seeing me, since we met.

Told me but didn’t,
Why it couldn’t be.
Your vagueness it boggles
The mind inside me.

You said,

Nothing made sense,
Nothing was right,
Darlin’ I just want to hold you tonight.
Why is it wrong?
Tell me why is it strange?
Please tell me so I can make a change.
Even though it’s all gone now,
I’m left asking why,
With no answers, I look to the sky.

I fought for you, bled for you, now it’s all wrong?
And I’m left here singing this stupid song?
And you could end this agony with one simple choice,
To let loose my agony, Let me hear your voice!

You said,

Nothing made sense,
Nothing was right,
Darlin’ I just want to hold you tonight.
Why is it wrong?
Tell me why is it strange?
Please tell me so I can make a change.
Even though it’s all gone now,
I’m left asking why,
With no answers, I look to the sky.

Ann

One day I looked in through a wardrobe
And I saw a princess brave and free.
She said: “Will you come over to save me?
From a land that is far cross the sea?”
So I battled with dragons and giants,
And I found her broken, scarred and torn.
Yes, this was the first time I met her.
But I knew her the day I was born.

And The Aird Righ he brought us together,
Through the tempest, the storm, and the wave.
And though we have trials before us,
He gives us the will to be brave.

And it’s true we’ve had many a journey
Past the valleys of doubt and regret.
One time I turned into a monster.
Your promise of love saved me yet.
Beside you I remember who I am.
I’ve no teeth but I bear Soldier’s songs.
My sword is The Flame of The West and-
Our compass will never point wrong.

And Judah’s seed brought us together,
Through the forest, the swamp, and the rain,
And just like The Lion of Judah,
We’ll fall, but we will rise again.

Wanderers are we-
Across the sea
He will bring us together.

Nothing to fear.
El Shaddai’s here.
He will bring us together.

Flame of the West-
Had gone to rest.
He will bring us together.

It was remade.
Debts have been paid!

I long for you…

No matter what evils befall us.
Even death’s cold and evil abyss,
There’s nothing that can face the love of-
The goodly-wise Sovereign and Prince.
The Hero feat has been performed and-
The cloven returned back to lambs.
And our destinies are fixed forever.
In the palm of our Love’s righteous hand.
In the palm of our Love’s righteous hand
In the shade of Immanuel’s land.

The Lord’s My Shepherd

(To the Tune of “Sally Gardens”)

The Lord’s My Shepherd I will- Not want for anything.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, Leads me beside quiet streams.
He grants my soul renewal, And leads in His Righteous way.
For His name’s sake he does this, He will not lead me astray.

E’en though I walk through death’s shadow, My Lord is always with me.
I will not fear ill in His presence, Evil from His sight, does flee.
He makes a table for me, in the presence of my enemies.
He anoints my head with oil, My cup runs over, free.

Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all my days.
I will dwell in God’s house forever, Yes He will lead me, all the way.
He swallowed death in one gulp, that He drank from a sponge on the cross.
Let us rejoice in salvation! The Lamb came to save the lost.

O Garden Of Eden

(To the Tune of “Flower of Scotland”)

Oh Garden of Eden When will we see your like again?
When will we walk with
The Lord our God again?
When will The Hero
Be bruised for our sake?
When will he Crush The Serpent’s head?

When will the word, Lord, be wrapped up in a baby’s flesh?
When will the hero our thirsty hearts refresh?
When will his precious blood pour out for us?
When will he rise up and conquer death?

Rejoice oh Sinners! That prophecy has come to pass!
Our Hero is on the right hand of God at last
What have we to fear now? No death and no powers.
The hero is resting upon his throne.

(Tolkienism 1) In The Beginning/Once Upon A Time

(This is part of a rap album I’m writing to describe a set of Christian ideas I like to refer to as Tolkienism.)

The Purpose of this album,
These Words, This essay
Is not to teach a new doctrine
Or to lead you astray.
The word I coined, Tolkienism
refers to a man
Whom I disagree with on many things.
But this is just a plan
Of mine to show you something
You might never have seen
When reading Scriptures and doctrines.
This is something in between-
The lines about Sovereignty
In the Westminster Confession
That for Me and John Ronald
Is/Was an obsession.

I’m penning these words
Because I feel like
Many cold-hearted Christians
Need to wake up and lay sight
On the Truth of God’s word
And the implications that come
From what the Bible says
About God’s One and Only Son!

I’m talking mainly to Reformed
Christians like me.
The “Frozen Chosen” some call us.
And we are God’s family.
But we’re holed up in our rooms
Typin’ on our computers
Like little hermits hidin’ from the world
It’s rapists and looters.
Hidin’ behind fancy words
And the logical strength
Of presuppositionalism
And let me be frank,
The more puffed up you get
The more you forget,
The first question in the Shorter Chat-
Wait, what was that?

I’m all for theology
And I love thinking deep.
I think these things need to be defined.
So we’re not on that steep-
Slippery slope. We’re on that solid ground.
God’s Word revealed.
But here’s what many cold hearts miss
This is what is concealed.

But before I let this album loose
Let me tell you please,
I’m not a Pastor or Teacher
No not in the least.
I’m a writer, I’m a poet,
At least some people say.
I’m just a Calvinist Christian
Who’s here to convey
These Words, This Truth
And I hope you engage it.
I hope you won’t be cold
Or cage-stage it.
Test my words, by The Word
See if it’s in sync.
Then get your own conclusion.
Let me know what you think.
