Hide in the Lord Jesus your pain

Hide in the Lord Jesus your pain,
That his healing in your life you gain.
Hide in the Lord Jesus your victories,
That you focus on His humble mysteries.

Hide in the Lord Jesus your sorrows,
That by Him you get better tomorrow’s.
Hide in the Lord Jesus your past,
That you walk with him much fast.

Hide in the Lord Jesus your anguish,
That in self pity you do not languish.
Hide in the Lord Jesus your desires,
That the Holy Spirit you for God’s glory inspires.

Witness for Christ

Let the light of Christ shine in you O believer,
That of good works you be an achiever.
So people who know of your life story,
May get inspired to give your Heavenly Father glory.

Bear witness for Christ Jesus to everyone,
And be ready to defend the cause of your hope to anyone.
For this you must honor the Lord God as holy,
And study his Word with eagerness wholly.

Don’t fear to bear witness to what Christ has spoken,
Let your courage be stronger that wood that’s oaken.
And be of good taste like salt,
Stay clear of each sinful fault.

Do as Jesus commanded; preach and baptize,
Each one you help disciple and make wise.
Do this in the name of the Holy Trinity divine,
That each worthily partake of Christ’s bread and wine.

Speak words of faith

Speak words of faith,
Fear not any wraith.
Be bold in the Lord God,
And keep your vision broad.

Speak not fear nor despair,
But of each word be aware.
Guard your heart with full attention,
As life’s issues from it have ascension.

Speak only what is right,
Keep on your tongue wise insight.
Talk to encourage and guide,
Let your speech be courteous and dignified.

Speak never words unseemly and unwise,
Lest good fortune you lose and despise.
May your confession be from God’s word,
That your life be sure and not blurred.

Wake up O people of God

Wake up O people of God over every hill and ford,
Wake up and stand for the Lord.
Wake up each child and grown up,
Wake up and God’s Kingdom build up.

Wake up O those in anxiety and deep grief,
Wake up and drive out the faith thief.
Wake up each woman and man,
Wake up and follow God’s plan.

Wake up O sleeper and rise from the dead,
Wake up and Christ will shine over your head.
Wake up for the Lord, each Gentile and Jew,
Wake up and let your praises to God never be few.

Tougher than the Holy life

Compared to the Holy life the sinful life is tougher,
For the wages of sin in eternal life is rougher.
In the Holy life you’re rejected by worldly beings,
While in the sinful life you’re rejected by heavenly beings.

Sin may seem to have pleasure in its initial payoff,
But from eternal joy it’s simply much way off.
Now holiness makes less friends,
While sinfulness begets hopeless ends.

Some think of sin as useful tool,
Only to be caught up like a fool.
Beware that anger, hate and regret,
In Hell does the sinner get.

Save me O Lord from all evil dreams

Save me O Lord from all evil dreams,
Silence down all the nasty screams.
By your name O Lord Jesus, my nightmares I banish,
And I’ll keep doing it till they all vanish.

Save me O Lord from all lying dreams,
Keep me safe from Satan’s wicked schemes.
By your victory O Lord Jesus I claim my right,
To have peaceful sleep, be it day or night.

Save me O Lord from all tempting dreams,
Pull me out of the bewitching streams.
By your Divine Word I choose to abide,
So keep me safe from every side.

Save me O Lord from all profane dreams,
Let your Holy Angels trounce the insidious teams.
By your perfect love O God which I hold so dear,
From my rest let it cast out all fear.

The undiscerned life one must avoid

The undiscerned life one must avoid,
For it may be of wisdom devoid.
People who wander through choices,
Better be vary of deceitful voices.

Examine your life in full or in parts,
Till all foolishness and timidity departs.
Ask of the Lord and Him by prayer approach,
For he gives wisdom generously without reproach.

For why must you keep blindly shopping,
From tricksters and then keep dropping?
Why must you go for a risky drive,
Only to crash by a reckless dive?

Value your life and its action,
Always choose a sensible reaction.
Be of a good strong spine,
Then your decisions will be fine.

Your precious life, is to you God’s gift,
So by your conduct, to Him your praises lift.
Breathe each breath with a holy mission,
So that you live with Divine provision.

Be not idle

Be not idle O believer,
Lest you get tricked by the deceiver.
For the Devil works best on the idle mind,
Especially on those who leave their caution behind.

Be not idle O God’s friends,
Seek to please God at all life’s bends.
For your time on earth is not forever,
Some chances to do good don’t come twice ever.

Be not idle O Kingdom people,
Soar up for Christ like an eagle.
For great is Our Lord and King,
Unto him your praises sing.

Be not idle O everyone,
For nothing great the lazy has done.
Waken up your body, soul and mind,
In your walk of faith don’t lag behind.

Admire not your looks

Admire not yourself too much,
Nor be too proud as such,
Acknowledge your beauty if you must,
But be always humble, true and just.

Know that Lucifer’s pride in his beauty did swell,
So much that he against God did rebel.
This angel’s sin wasn’t small,
From his heavenly place he did fall.

In being humble always do well,
Focus on heaven and not towards hell.
Use not your beauty to cause others to lust,
For sin causes tempters to return to dust.

By your looks don’t think yourself great,
Lest your due reward be an evil fate.
Be like the Holy Angels who have strength and beauty,
Yet they worship God and do their duty.

Work out your salvation

Work out your salvation with fear and trembling,
Always have faith to refrain from stumbling.
Guard your heart with much care,
Against all those to deceive you dare.

Work out your salvation not alone,
Be always in the Holy Spirit’s zone.
Ever be vary of apostates vile,
If they your belief revile.

Work out your salvation with cleverness,
Always worshiping God with eagerness.
Your salvation so great is given by God,
Through Christ where no other could trod.

Work out your salvation with quality,
That your conduct never have frivolity.
The Gospel you’ve been given to hold and follow,
So that you walk with Christ beyond each tomorrow.
