I’ve gathered up a veritable store
Matchless riches and treasures galore
Floating around I’m lost at sea
Waiting for what’s not to be
It won’t happen left to myself
So, I pile more on a shelf
Look about it’s everywhere
Having eyes, it just might stare
Like me inside the t.v.
Lean on clean, unorganized
Out in the open, it’s for all eyes
Marvel upon a-maze with wonder
Watch your step! you’re buried under
My life’s work, a curious endeavor
‘til the end delay forever


Numerous times have I thus said
Evil thoughts shan’t crowd my head
Countless times have I so cried
Wicked deeds, I shan’t abide
Several times have You thus said
It was for you My blood was shed
Various times have You therefore cried
My grace, you can trust in prayer you can hide


Left to the State a child to educate
Turn your back, and you are so slack!
Glory in shame and shift all the blame
Trace of humanity in all your insanity
On your knees the man you please
Playing the whore, but look what’s in store
Judgment Throne, where all is known
God’s Holy name a will to reclaim
Great High Priest for an honored race
Christ entered in to redeem that which was lost
He paid the price, and oh how much it cost


I supply the shackles; you provide the need
Embrace the put-on and point towards me
A strange twist of fate, a macabre reality
I have the power; show you a sign
Fear takes hold; the will becomes mine
A dangerous match such is life
Unseen terrors exact a high price
Reflections of you each night of every day
You can hide yet you won’t get away
I’ve known you since before the time
Death becomes you like an aged whine


Flee from The Sword advancing every day
Fearing God’s Anointed, lost in the fray
Heart of sinful man plumps with graft and greed
Anxious to oblige the bawl of souls in need
Insidious schemes, licentious lust
For you I’ll pray in you I’ll trust
Chained to a stake, be a good boy
Pull the strings and dance like a toy
Supplied with amusements, a macabre landscape
Mindlessly stare in a trance-like state
Idle and senseless while It seizes the whirled
Pledge of fidelity, a hag’s unfurled
Good-bye Christianity
Hello insanity

The Prophet

Such not ever seen
In the days present nor past
Moses spoke face to face
With the First and the Last

Out of the land of Egypt
Bearing silver and gold
The Israelites set forth
A nation’s story unfolds

Great signs and great wonders
From God’s mighty hand
Bestowed upon the prophet
Our God’s eternal plan

Out of the midst of the nation
Great terrors performed – he
Pestilence and plagues
Parting the Red Sea

Destroying Pharaoh’s army
The kings of the Amorites
The giant children of Anak
Even the Canaanites

Braving insurrections
With intercessory prayer
He pleaded for the people
For almighty God to spare

Blessing all the tribes
He scaled Mount Nebo to see
The promised land of Canaan
The Glory that is to be

The prophet and servant of God
In the land of Moab died
The children of Israel mourned
For thirty days they cried

Moses, the friend of God
Was buried in the land
With mercy and compassion
By Almighty God’s hand


The Glory of God descended
From celestial Heavens high
Wilderness land of Horeb
Mount called Sinai

Out of the midst of the fire
Dark cloud and thick smoke
The voice of Almighty God
Unto the Nation spoke

At the base of the mount
The Israelites stood in fear
Pleading with the prophet, Moses
To ascend and hear

God’s words of a covenant promise
Even the commandments; ten
Statutes and judgments for learning
For Moses to tutor all men

The God of our faithful fathers
Brought forth with a mighty hand
All the nation of Israel
To give a promised land

The sovereign, merciful God
To Him goes all the Glory
Our Lord is supremely righteous
The Spirit is forever Holy
