Perfectam Caritatem (My Perfect Love)

My Lord loves me ever true
Beyond what I can say, think, or do
Encompassed in time I’m sure to wane
Yet my Redeemer remains the same
On His mercy, I solely rely
Enduring forever by and by
Left to myself I’d be truly lost
He paid my way; an innumerable cost
His light shines beyond the darkest shadow
His ways, I strive to follow
Suffer affliction, suffer shame
Gladly I will glorify His holy name

Orison

Holy Father in Heaven
Please, look upon us
Lost souls cast deep shadows upon the earth
True light seems to be fading
Flickering in the chasmic depths of our iniquity
Oh Lord, remember us with mercy and compassion
That we may live and not die
Our faith rests solely in Your Blessed Son
Our Lord and our Saviour, Jesus Christ

Theory

“What I don’t say is that which I do.”
A twisted standard that’s hanging you
“Stand for nothing and for all I’ll fall.”
An untold strait in which you bawl
The imminent threat always advancing
Falling back your singing and dancing
A nebulous image amid a storm
Pasquinade of life to perform

Tenderness

Far away forever stands
Still, my mind
Twice to witness
Playful shadows in existence
Flourishing, abounding
Timeless even full
Love cascades stay gently falling
Immersed in The Truth
Descending in full
All-Knowing, a warm embrace
Like none other
On earth, in Heaven
The Glory awaits

 

 

 

The Messiah

Our Lord and Master reigns above
God’s Holy Spirit in the form of a dove
On Him to rest nobility and might
No thought, nor deed escapes his sight
The prophet John did baptize
In the Jordan for all eyes
To look upon His glorious face
Rescued from death a fallen race
Jesus Christ did truly perform
A perfect work, thus we adorn
Robes of pure righteousness
His blessed name we shall confess
To all the world by day and night
In God’s mercy, we delight

Not Our Ways

Look to the sky; behold God’s might
A brilliant star traverses the night
Vanishing on to who knows where
Feeble minds prompt a stare
Witness the clouds passing in time
Wind and rain past sublime
Who can fathom the Spirit so true?
All would perish if God withdrew
Our Lord’s ways no one can know
Except that which He’s pleased to show

Truth So Cold

Easy getting lost in man’s calamity
All-encompassing no room to breathe
Do what I say I’ll make you pay
Your life is mine, blood-like wine
Drink from the cup
Drown the soul in stark misery
Thank you, Spirit for showing me
The truth untold – God of Glory
The Blessed Son – One and Only
Died for me on a tree
Despising the shame He set me free

Newfound Favor

If it’s true, I’ll surely lie
Feigning tears, one can’t deny
If I’m guilty, I’ll plead, not
Claiming virtue, I haven’t got
When duly charged, I’ll fitly bray
5th Amendment will be my stay
When caught, I will stand
Turn and walk with a wave of the hand
Theatrical play – Greek tetralogy
Change of name, a whole new face
Take the stage – newfound grace
