»Dear Jesus«

by Tshepo Direro, July 22, 2019

Thou hast given me hope from the womb
Thou hast also given me gifts
Whatever I put my hands on turns to gold
I love thee Lord
Thou art Wonderful

What can I do to bring glory and honor to thy name
Thou hast also written the number of my years on the palms of Thy hands
My desire is to see Thy face and hear Thy sweet voice before I give up the ghost
What else can I desire from this life

Life is nothing else but an illusion
It is vanity to live life without Thee
In Thy absence there is no life
You spoke everything into existence and
The earth is full of Thy glory
For Thou hast made me a royal diadem in Thy hands and a crown of Glory

»The Garden Of My Soul«

The end starts in the beginning / The puzzle of Old, / Understood only by wise men, / That powers within human beings are infinite / Made to look finite by the world of time / / Lest ye say that life is hard / Instead say that I'm harder than life / For our souls are like gardens / Made precious by the  sign in to read more »
