Abram - Gods Promise

Poet: Greta Zwaan, 2003

Abram, Abram, what have you done?
Remember, God promised to give you a son.
Has He not always been true to His Word?
Was this a message you might not have heard?

Are you still worldly, your trust incomplete?
Because of a need that God couldn't meet?
You gave into Sarai, agreed to her plan;
You let her persuade you, you proved a weak man.

Hagar conceived and gave you a son,
But this child was not God's promised one.
You should have waited, just thought things through;
Been patient and trusting, in God's timing for you.

Many years later the pain is still here,
Ismael and Isaac - that hatred, that fear.
Jews against Arabs, fighting for land,
Heartaches and problems they don't understand.

Abram, Abram, what a burden you bear,
Acting on instinct as if God wasn't there.
Now there is hatred, more than ever before,
Mistrust is rampant and peace is no more.

You were unfaithful, God chose to forgive;
All His compassion allowed you to live.
And not only that, God still blesses your life,
And gave you a son through Sarai, your wife.

Gods' hand's not shortened when man interferes,
Let it be known that each prayer He hears.
Let us learn patience, let us learn trust,
For all that God does is holy and just.

Patience, dear Abram, would have won you the race,
God is sufficient with power and grace.
Yes, He'll forgive you, with love pure and strong,
His presence will bless you if you're where you belong.

Abram, Abram, what a great God you serve,
Rest in His mercy; let your faith never swerve.



Requests
Poet: Digby Mackworth Dolben


I asked for Peace -
My sins arose,
And bound me close,
I could not find release.

I asked for Truth -
My doubts came in,
And with their din
They wearied all my youth.

I asked for Love -
My lovers failed,
And griefs assailed
Around, beneath, above.

I asked for Thee -
And Thou didst come
To take me home
Within Thy heart to be.


How Terrible To Be Poor
Poet: Greta Zwaan, 2019

How devastating to be poor, not having wealth on earth,
No cause to brag of all you own, to be of little worth.
No mansion to adorn with lights, no gardens to display,
No servants who would call you "Sir" and do what e're you say.

No limousine to drive in style with chauffeur at the wheel,
No smart, impressive clothes to wear, no luxury appeal.
No bank accounts with great assets, no office to address,
No friends to envy all you own and no one to impress.

You are so poor you only have what God gives you each day;
Faith to draw you close to Him when e're you kneel to pray.
A promise that His strength is yours, a knowledge that He's there,
A hand of love to hold you up where you are free of care.

You own no lands, you have no claims but you are royalty,
You are a child of God the King, eternal Majesty!
He recognizes what you're worth – a jewel for heaven's crown,
You are a witness to His love, your feet on holy ground.

Your popularity on earth does not exist for you,
But God's own angels guide your path when day begins anew.
Your needs supplied, your goal is set, and you are heaven bound,
Your earthly ties do not entice for heavenly wealth you've found.

All earth's values will decay so no one can lay claim,
But poverty exists no more when you have Jesus’ name!
