When your night is
And by yourself you
realise you're alone,
When your day just
And the song in your
heart dies away,
When your heart
starts to cry
And you just don’t
When your mind goes
And inside all you
know is pain,
Love for you comes
Certainly the night
And your never
Though the day fade
The song inside will
light the way,
Then the heart will
rise up high
And the caged mind
will soar to the sky,
Let faith keep the
can feel it sometimes,
When you sleep you dream
you feel awake, aware,
when you you’re awake,
Life itself becomes a dream,
Your escape can become your prison,
your prison can become your redemption,
Only the lost can be found
finders aren’t always keepers
There is no life in the void
Just as there is no end to love
is the everlast and the eternal
is the today and the tomorrow
is the reality and the dream
revolution and the rebel.
rising above death’s setting
key to the golden door
we become the children of fear no more.
When they pierced his hands and feet
I felt his pain ……….
When they laughed and ridiculed him
I felt ashamed…………….
I felt his pain when he was crowned with thorns
I felt his pain when he fell under the weight of the
I felt his pain when he saw the soldiers laughing at him
I felt his pain when he thought his father had
O why do we continue to laugh and make fun
Why do we continue to take him for granted
Can we not see that he is ETERNITY
Can we not see that he is all God wanted
us to be
So let us all live in harmony ……………
Let us forget about skin colour and nationality and
Let us be all that God wants us to be Let us
live in ETERNITY
Without you, there would be no me..
Without your love, I would never be.
You are the one who made my life so real,
You taught me all I know, you taught me to feel.
Your tender care cured my broken heart..
You were always there for me, from the very start.
From you I learnt to truly love,
I believe you were a guardian angel from above.
The support you gave I will always treasure..
The teachings you gave me will last forever.
Every person you have met, their lives you have touched,
For this, we love so very much.
Mother you mean the world to me..
Mother your love for me have set me free.
What was always best for me, you knew,
And for this I just want to say Thank You.

Pain like a
Enters in a sudden moment
Residing in my heart
Like a festering sore
Oh why on earth did I open the door?
Soaring one moment on
the ecstasies of my fantasies
The next, downtrodden, I fall to my knees
Oh the dark dismal abyss of my mind
Where the demons of fear attempt to reside
So subtle they are like an invisible mist
Creeping into my thoughts as the mist invades the cliffs
Filling the crevices one by one
They never rest till their work is done
But LOVE knocks at the same door to rescue me
With bold yet gentle fervour
Will you trust and let HIM in
Or simply die within?

A Prayer for Youth
We offer to you, loving God, the
gifts and needs of youth.
Bless them with your guiding grace
as they face the challenges and
opportunities in their lives.
Touch their hearts with the
gentleness of your love,
that they may know they are valued
and valuable beings.
Send your spirit of hope to their
that they may believe in themselves
and know they are needed in this
Grace them with the gift of joy
that they may celebrate life through
laughter and tears alike.
Guide us, as we continue to grow
in our appreciation of the many gifts
of young people,
in the ministry opportunities we
offer to them,
in the journey of faith we walk with
in our shared mission as a community
called to discipleship
in the world.
We ask this in Jesus' name.
When the sun kisses the land below,
And the flowers open up in a beautiful glow...
When the birds soar happily high in the sky,
And the animals enjoy the sun where they lie...
When a soft breeze shimmers all leaves on the trees,
And moulds, rolls and curls the swelling of the sea...
When you can see the light sparkling off the back of a whale,
And a string of pearls hangs from an enchanting woman with a tale...
When all the heavens open up and sing,
And the butterflies carry every earthly colour on its wings...
It is that that exact moment, I will see...
You standing very strong, right next to me.
