Gary the Poet's Pen
A Harbor of Hosannas For Him
Adoring, adoring, to the pier I am now mooring
Safely attached to the shelter of Your loving arms,
Soaring, soaring, like a new baby is a borning
You keep me safe from the storms and all harms.
I grow a bit older and a bit bolder, I am walking
I stumble and I falter, You then lift me up again,
You are my rock and my boulder, I am talking
Learning to speak words of life and love, amen.
I embark on a journey and take You with me afar
I get distracted and have enacted a plan to fail,
Like a rotten corpse on a gurney or a runaway car
My life comes crashing down and loudly I wail.
You are there to restore me when I am ready to repent
I remember You have given me a manual to follow,
I repay the debts I have accrued to those who have lent
I seek Your face daily and I trust You with tomorrow.
It is a curious thing that for a man to know he is found
He must yield to his Creator and admit that he is lost,
I have built my life on the Rock and on steady ground
I am back safely in the slip and no longer being tossed.
I worship You as the captain and the beacon of my soul
I leave it to You to correct me as a parent does a tiny child,
Apart from You I am adrift and in danger on the shoals
I praise Jesus for helping me with the Father be reconciled.
Abba, Father and Abba to the Son and the One eternally.
Worthy of the praises and the songs that I shall sing,
Like a lighthouse that always shines, you have guided me
Safely into the harbor of Your shores, You shall bring.
