Can't you see them dancing in the
Their hands reaching up to Heaven's
Gate, Come a little closer
See their faces glowing,
The Rabbis are singing of Yeshua's
Come join the circle,
Come join the song,
As Yeshua's love draws You,
Away from the throng.
The Rabbis are laughing
What took us so long?
To find the truth of forgiveness,
And sing Yeshua's Song.
You say, I have betrayed my people and
God says; "I have chosen you, you have
not chosen Me."
Out of the heart the mouth speaks.
What will it take for you to see, drops
They were shed for you and me, when
crucified on Calvary's Tree.
You say, you are Jewish, so was He.
When will you open your heart and
that the Son of God gave His life for
to receive the gift of everlasting grace
shining down from His face, eternal
for the human race.

the poison of lies the enemy whispers
in your ears, all those wasted years

at the gentleness of His grace, open
heart and see His face, you foolish
we are saved by grace.
Tree of Love
Gently it's branches dance

The acceptance of the gnarled trunk

So our lives are a cherished gift.
Even the gnarled, broken branches
of love's losses are

We select the nectar of God, and new
branches begin to sprout.

For You and Me
What depth of Love
What depth of Love
burned an Calvary's Tree.
It wasn't just drops of blood
But life for you and me.
In a world that doesn't see
that turned and walked away
tree, is just a tree.
But life for you and me.
As we reflect back in time
was it a day like today?
When the Father's Heart
broke when He gave His Son away
Is yesterday, like today?
It is for you and me?
What did He leave that day?
Was it only a burning Cross,
of years of stains,
or was it His shared Veins,
that released a life covered
does His life still remain,
as I call upon His Name.

Arise from your slumber,
oh my soul.
Awake from your clouded mind
the day of darkness will
become days of light.
What was once a question
will become an answer.
Deep in the center of your spirit
bubbling up like foam on
the ocean's sand the Truth
Arise, oh my soul
don't let deceptive flesh
keep you hidden inside
Awake, shake off complacency and lack of
The Risen Lard will return
and darkness will be no more.
Nothing can destroy the
Yeshua said, "Destroy this temple
and I will raise again in three days".
What men thought was mere stone
was God's rebirth from their
destruction and limited vision.
We who are reborn in Yeshua
rejoice,' Light your lamp,
let not the slumber of past
hurts, unanswered prayer,
or disappointments keep you
new day is dawning
the Truth, the Way, the Light
He wil1 take us into His temple forever,
and darkness will become eternal Life.

Jesus; The Planting of My Soul
Plant within me Eyes to see
what was in your thoughts
the night your Father called
you to His side.
The night He told you
you would be born to die.
Give me the Hope that was
planted within your heart
as your traveled through
the inner parts of Mary's
When your Spirit took life,
and your Father released you
into a world torn by sin,
and He cried,
Plant within me the Courage
you bore being different
that other human beings.
As you grew in body and the
child within died.
Plant within me the strength to
face the fears I hide deep inside
When the cares of this world paralyze
release me from the test of time.
Open up my soul, turn it inside out
when all that is within me is full
pour out your Blood into my veins.
Let your Word grow
let it never be in vain
as you gave Your Life to me,
when I called our Your
