Silently Inside

Pain has come and pain has gone.
It’s up and down as life goes on.
Unwelcomed tears, still they came.
You must obey the rules of the game.
No room for fear. Nowhere to hide.
You can only cry aloud silently inside.

The voice will fade. The pain will too.
You must learn to breathe it through.
Trust the one instructing you.
Only they know what to do.
Leave those closing eyes open wide.
You can cry aloud silently inside.

Caught within a world of fury.
Self made judge and jury.
So much noise within the silence.
Penned beneath the raging violence.
Muffled within the voice that tried.
I heard you cry aloud silently inside.

Wasted life upon the floor.
Her Savior shouts, “They’ll be no more!
The life I made. The life I love
Will take no more push and shove!
My child, you need no longer hide.
I heard you cry aloud silently inside.”

“But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning:
for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.”

– Psalm 59:16 KJV

Law of Death, Pardon of life

Rules, laws, regulations,
ways by which to live.
We dread the protection
that God was generous to give.
Fines, punishment,
sentences to carry out.
With so much clarity,
there is little room for doubt.
Yet just as sure,
is the guarantee to fail.
While stuck in this flesh,
sin will prevail.
Thank God for a Savior
who recognized
the need for mercy,
and gave with His life.
Now we are freed
from this law of death,
given grace from above
to draw eternal breath.
