Darkest Hour

By Andrea Sudik

A ring of fire encircles you

I want to reach out and touch you

But the climbing flames

Make that seem impossible

The sparks that fly out and shock me

Do not hurt

For not to love you, only breaks my heart

As the flames grow hotter,

You do not burn

For your soul is eternal

A gift for which I yearn

You seem to slip away from my grasp

An aching feeling that I hope

Will not last

As I cannot reach you

I cry and dream

Of the times together, that were miraculous

I thought it seemed

 

Ransom Paid

By Ramesh C. Reddy

I was caught in sin

Without a way to win

Satan became my master

Sin started controlling me faster

My whole life was a night

Without a ray of light

Sin had shown me its might

I would always lose the fight

Until I was made right

Now sin had lost its power

On a Good Friday hour

Because Jesus took all my sin on Calvayís hill

Delivering me from Satanís will

Satan wanted to perish me

Jesus wanted to cherish me

He knew the Cross was the Only Way!

My ransom He decided to pay!

Delivering me from Satanís sinful flood

Nails pierced Jesusí hands and feet, shedding His blood

Darkness covered the earth

I received new birth

I was washed whiter than snow

As the Savior I came to know

I am free at last

From my sinful past

Amen!

 

Salvation

By Andrea Sudik

The sunlight breaks across

Your face

As you are lifted through the clouds

Carried on

To a place where you shall continue

The sky, so blue and bright

Reassures me that I have nothing to fear

Here on earth, I know your time

Has come to an end

But the beginning of your spirit

Has just come

Your soul is one
