Jesus King – His Way Right Away!

Instead of Burger King’s slogan “Your Way Right Away,”  I’ll take Jesus King – His Way Right Away!

The Way

My way is a crooked line.
His way is straight by the Vine.
My way is self serving.
His way is give to God and then to others.
Now that’s the way you get to livin’

My way, there’s no hope just dark and despair,
His way, the Son shines bright, my soul He repairs.
My way is left incomplete.
His way says it is finished, see His hands and His feet.

My way says at birth life begins.
His way says put it to death to find life in the end.
My way, good works tries to quench the thirst.
His way, its filthy rags; when Christ is not first.

My Soul Cries Out, “At Last I’m Whole!”

My soul cries out
lack of self,
redeem myself.
It cries again,
heal this pain
just love to gain.
And still again
full of wonder
as strong as thunder.
And once again
take my heart
a brand new start.
Release my soul
that I may fly.
Let not thy wonder
pass me by.
Much to gain
and naught to lose.
My self desires
I bid goodbye.
My soul sings out
a brand new story;
full of love, full of joy.
It sings again
with not a word
yet still is heard.
And still again
I can feel.
I know He’s real.
At last I’m whole
just ask my soul.
