Let's Understand

It is in the incarnation
That the Church must look and see
The work of regeneration
By God's Spirit in you and me.

How can we ever understand
Our new birth without knowing
How the incarnation happened
God did it for our growing.

The Holy Spirit came upon
God's power overshadowed;
Conception happened at that time
The Son of God foreshadowed.

So, the Spirit comes at new birth
God's Word does shadow all;
Conception then has taken place
You are a son of God, by call.

It's in regeneration
That we understand how He
Became flesh at incarnation;
It happened that we might see.

Just how our Saviour, Yeshua
Was born upon that night;
And how that all He did
Was to guide our way by Light.

'cause all He did was for us
That we might understand;
Just what is our position
In Him in Whom we stand.

So, if we understand His birth,
Life, death and resurrection
We will also understand
About our Lord's ascension.

Hallel, each part of His life
Speaks always of salvation;
Then let us come to understand
The coming consummation.

Life's Hill

I was climbing up life's hill
On a steep and crooked track,
But for every two steps taken
It seemed three I would slip back.
I tried to hang on with my hands
And dug my heels in too;
But in the end I'd slide back down
Injured and feeling through.
So, up again I'd push
But that hill it seemed to grow
Into a mountain fortified
With a precipice below.

The load I bore was heavy
It would force me to the ground
But as I struggled to my feet,
I heard a little sound.
A voice upon my ear did ask
'Why is it you delay
if you wish to climb this mountain
why don't you stop to pray? '
It was then that I remembered
Those words I now love best,
'Come to me you heavy laden
and I shall give you rest.'

Matthew 11: 28

Light

The Spirit that is in me
Is the lamp of the Lord
I am not to hide my light
But let it shine abroad.
For, if my eye be clear
Then my body is full of light
But if my eye be evil
It's much darker than the night.

Now, my eyes are clear
With Yeshua light they gleam
For by the Holy Spirit of God
I did remove my beam.
I am but an earthen vessel yet,
Like the ones of Gideon
But God shattered me in pieces
To show His light within.

Proverbs 20: 27

Listen

Come Christian men and women
Harken to what I say;
About our Lord Yeshua the Christ
He is the Truth and Way.
We must obey his every word
That he speaks from above
Reminding us that we must walk
According to his love.
For, I would dare say to you
That we must live his Cross
Crucified unto the flesh
For each we suffer loss.

To care for yourself is wrong
For others Yeshua's came;
Shed his blood, he freely gave
So we must do the same.

For in the words of Yeshua
A lesson we can learn
Hearing what the Spirit says,
I want you to discern.
The Son shall seperate the nations
And His yardstick shall be;
'If you did it for the least of these,
you did it unto me.'

So, Christian men and women
I've said what I must say;
Let's esteem the other better;
Listen, this is love's Way.

Matthew 25: 31-46; Philippians 2: 3
