Blood

by

Alfy Andrews

i live in a restless and wicked world
where industry and money takes its toll
nobody cares for others welfare or good
people move to and fro as time rolls
working morn till eve just for food
this doesnt do good for the hungry soul
violence peaks in all types of land
aint no peace, like the rock n roll
sins unnumbered exist like grains of sand
the cure for mankind lies in one hand
yea its with Jesus the crucified one
innocent blood was shed once for all
has all power to save this blue ball
Hail all Hail the blood of Jesus


Time

by

Alfy Andrews

Twenty four hours a day
is all the time i have today
even that was all yesterday
i play , i enjoy in every way
vainly i pursue pleasures
when i must be seeking the treasure
His will i must do or i die
no excuses even if i sigh and cry
Time is from the everlasting
given to all for the asking
Jesus teach me to redeem this source
for days are evil and remorse

The Trap

by

Alfy Andrews

love with this world is evident
for iam still in the flesh
abstinence may seem to be prudent
my mind seems to refresh
that evening i encounterd it
such of a kind i regret
sms with such mirth and wit
it displayed i love you
could this be really true
i wonder was this really genuine
or a kind of fetter to my mind
i reason it may character wrap
for sure its a fowler's trap

Its Tough

by

Alfy Andrews

childhood was a dream happy and gay
mirth and laughter every single day
as my bones increased in length
my flesh too acquired strength
my heart has not much changed much
still has its childlike touch
the habitat i live is so knit
only the strong survive and fit
Jesus teach me to leave childish things
Lord help me a weakling with wings

A Direction

by

Alfy Andrews

Mind's a wild colt unbridled so free
the thoughts like the leaves of a tree
innumerable sprouting lush green
withers soon as acts of a young teen
as a flower that blossoms today
i live this one life to fade away
in this short life of hectic motion
my life's full of misspent action
Lord Jesus give me correct Direction

Ultimate Therapy

by

Alfy Andrews

once upon a time i was sad
now every moment iam very glad
i saw a charlie chaplin movie
lot of comedy shows on TV
yea sure they are really good
lightens our heavy moods
we all laugh heartily at them
as water to roots and stem
comedians beautifully entertain
when Tv is off all would be vain
so where is true happiness found
which can liberate the bound
its no joke now lets face it
take the truth bit by bit
Jesus will all our sorrows hide
for all our sins He once died

Rest in Peace

by

Alfy Andrews

This is an age of great noise
generated by all agers girls and boys
rage and music along with toys
also by the heavy machine's voice
and by BMWs ,Benz and rolls royce
where can peace be really found
when the whole world is wired for sound
is it there in those meditation camps
or alone with books read under lamps
locking ourselves in a room wont do
no peace even in our sleep too
our search for peace and joy will cease
as we call on Jesus the Prince of Peace

Priceless Pearl

by

Alfy Andrews

Under the mighty waves that swell
deep within the dark blue sea
inside a few sea-borne oyster shells
beauty manifests so very silently
this gracefully adorns every little girl
nature's frugal product called pearl
far above all where the gale might swirl
In Him heaven's glory would unfurl
He is Jesus the priceless pearl
He is not costly but a gift to be
let us accept His love and be free

Christmas to the Core

by

Alfy Andrews

Once in earth's history there came an stranger
He was a humble child born in a manger
much joy as salvation to all He would bring
now a little lower than angels yet a king
this child would trample our foe lucifer
and liberate the willing from the fetters
He was born to conquer our souls so He died
for all of our iniquities He was crucified
on the third day Jesus the Victor rose
the fiery battle once for all has come to close
joy to the world ,His blood shall cleanse earth
Hail all Hail king Jesus child of lowly birth

Lord this New Year

by

Alfy Andrews

Alas! another whole year is gone
next year will soon be born
happy and worrying moments did come
alternatively added to the sum
we were all generous sometimes
and selfish the other times
we laughed and giggled many days
also cried during woeful days
sometimes in the bed due to pain
we also did play in snow and rain
we all loved , cajoled and also hurt
emotions mingled with blushes and blurt
we all keep changing year after year
though far from home or very near
we all look to you Lord Jesus Christ
to carry and lead us this new year
Lord thou with time will change never
always the same yesterday today and foreever

vainly we try

by

Alfy Andrews

Lord our God thanks for this period of grace
though we fall you will not smite my face
gracious Jesus , thanks for thine precious blood
now we are made clean though our feet are in mud
Lord we know we must not take your love for granted
taking advantage of grace which in us thou planted
we know the truth yet mostly and willingly we stumble
Lord we try hard to refrain from beggarly elements
yet our flesh thirsts only for sin,with it we fumble
teach us Lord to obey and submit to holy spirit
and help us to flee from devil who will want to hit
we still are thine children, so Jesus please........

Hope Forever

by

Alfy Andrews

Jesus we hope in you king
for in our lives joy you bring
we may go our own ways
caring ourselves all days
like a dark canvas picture
hangs our unknown future
but this we know,after we die
to thee our souls will fly
real future lies beyond the grave
death cannot this bond sever
in you Lord there is hope forever.

Lord help us learn

by

Alfy Andrews

Heavenly Father our dear Master
we are thine now and forever
like new born children we need
care as to a germinating seed
Jesus we all need thine embrace
though we falter in many ways
As a father your hands to us reach
day by day a lesson thou will teach
God help us to walk and discern
and humbly from thee learn.

Words

by

Alfy Andrews

As the water falls from the hill
my words proceed at my will
Here and there it flies fast
cant retrieve for soon its lost
words of fun,sorrow,love and hate
all proceed from my wicked heart
like a battle that's well fought
i rejoice when through words i please
also darts do fly and sorrows increse
Lord this unruly member help me control
for a quiet person has a good soul.

Expressions

by

Alfy Andrews

wow thats cool,may be wise or a fool
sure we know expressions are our tools
like the morning dew on the vast terrain
or the quiet slumber on a Sunday
we may thunder at times as torrential rain
and softly whisper as gale in may
whatever our lot , rich or poor in earth
we start expressing in all ways from birth
smiles,frowns,grins,giggles and all
gives life to the otherwise dull blue ball
we laugh and shout when there's not a tear
sometimes in the dark encumbered with fear
Jesus maker of all that exists down here
we thank thee for our powers of expressions
we gladly smile for though art always near.

cry of a backslider

by

Alfy Andrews

As the deer panteth for the streams of water
our souls, oh Lord sometimes loves right
soon our steps go awry and delibrately falter
then at times like a blind man without sight
we wander through the jungles of pleasure
only to return assaulted and wounded by our sins
when at the end of the day to see our adversary wins
Lord ,the jungle of pleasure grips us with fear
yet we love its thorns , thistles and the dark
for we very well know at the end we must shed a tear
like the tireless woodpecker that pecks the bark
we ruthlessly pursue wild fruits to satisfy our lusts
Lord our Lord when will we truly repent and turn to thee
our flesh doesnt seem to stop , for soon it must
Lord give us the desire to be truly free
many years like a backslider forever in a vicous cycle
Jesus , help us to hate the cables that has fettered us
for thou Lord will save those who heartily choose thee
a life resembling sometimes jekyll and sometimes hyde
help us to abhor and truly embrace ,and with thee abide

Ravished bride

by

Alfy Andrews

I stand at the tempestuous shore

feelings of happiness to the core

tears sometimes over my cheeks

would dry as from eyes it leaks

this aint any strange feeling

betrothed to heavenly bridegroom

who fully stole my heart's room

though wordly lusts allure me

adulterous I cannot turn to be

fettered forever with my Jesus

yes I am his ravished heavenly bride

this joy and happiness I wont hide.

Soft Speech

by

Alfy Andrews

This aint no trifling and normal soul's way
Its not easy , its no child's play
to talk ,respond and not to react
to rule our tongues the unruly member
Lord teach us how to graciously smile and speak
and refrain darts which from our mouths leak
this is an art ,an ordeal and tough act
our soft speech can mend not sever
can break the bone and bind hearts together.

Behold This Name

by

Alfy Andrews

Corrupt and wicked ,while I was still young
Innocence was never my portion
Behold I was conceived in sin
Ever since my legs were set in motion
my feet made haste to sin and hell
Can pearls be found in mud and clay?
or there be any righteousness in my ways
During monsoon like the overflowing well
sins accumulate and sound like the tolling bell
Like the guitar riff of a heavy metal band
my sins rock me in and out and i yell
The bee instinctively steals the plant's pollen
so shall the devil leave every soul barren
oh so serious is this thing called sin
it has the hearts of young and old stolen
I cry, is there anyone in this universe
who can this sin's power destroy and disperse
yes came the answer ,from heaven loud n clear
Who can the saviour's honoured title wear?
Heavens echoed the sweetest name ive heard
It was Lord Jesus Christ the good shepherd.

Least Resistance

by

Alfy Andrews

Step by step I want to leap
Without sowing I want to reap
Love to see the morn sun in the west
Gazing upon a virgin I must not lust
Want to fall into diverse sins and yet
can I be on the shore without my feet wet
Want to enter heaven ,and not burn in hell
even when I play with fire so very well
This I know,from thy beautiful word Ive learnt
When I play with fire I will sure be burnt
Oh my soul's weak and this is my only wish
Lord help me learn from the stream water fish
To stem the tide with lots of persistance
And avoid the path of least resistance.

Untitled

by

Alfy Andrews

I let my imagination soar high and wide
like the glider without control
My thoughts to strict rules do not abide
like a galloping horse is my soul
Beyond the dark skies at an obscure angle
much away and farther from the solar system
Above where children of Jesus alone assemble
I imagine a celestial ecosystem
With an producer-consumer relationship
the producer holds the ultimate Lordship
Jesus the producer is the only source
men and women who have followed His course
End up as his consumers, lifting His Name
the producer feeds and even protects
Aint no devil up there, so no predation effects
Lord my Jesus both here and up there
We sure know thy role as our source and care
we all did consume of thy grace and mercy
Fed from thine own hand we all were chubby
our source and producer we thy consumers thank thee
in this terrestrial ecosystem on the cruel tree
thou didst die and rise, to set us all free.

Weak Love

by

Alfy Andrews

Time passes on and love is in the air
the web is built and a virgin waits
This sight I must see and closely stare
for courtship will happiness create
Like the unison of two atomic nuclei
in joy they unite, result of true dates
After the night one forever kisses goodbye
the other will and soon die or migrate
Why often is the energy of all young fusion
often misspent in adolescent confusion?
Love's not sex,all teen folk sure know
still some ,want to taste the forbidden mango
Discretion or selfcontrol what do they lack?
cant live life like a three-spine stickleback
Jesus help us bear the fruit of self control
flirting with sin is like living in a foxhole
Adolescent sex is one of evils under the sun
for the viper's sting will soon cease the fun

Gilded Toys of Dust

by

Alfy Andrews

This earth is cool with lots of things to buy
all I need is money to enjoy as days go by
John Bunyan said we all come across vanity fair
Shopping and spending money here and there
Sometimes our souls need to be guarded with care
we love to buy what others have,even our saved creed
Giving into peer pressure we all give into greed
Jesus my Lord I really love the things of this world
Lord I love to buy all that pleases my eyes
control of desire is really a tough exercise
Grant me grace to know that all in thy fold are rich
Help us Lord,for the gadgets of this world do bewitch

Sands of the Sea

by

Alfy Andrews

The breeze with its saline air kisses my hair
under the rising sun on the lithosphere
Like the warm embrace that eliminates fear
waves cuddle the shore with love and care
The sight is glorious , bright and fair
like a laser beam shot in the dark room
A bitter thought flashes across my mind
our iniquities are countless,they are more
Than all the grains of sand on any seashore
our sins so innumerable like grains of sea sands
The dear blemmishless lamb's life demands
Lord thou did not count our every trespass
You regarded not our sins,iniquities and flaws
our sins are as scarlet and countless as sands of sea
Lord Jesus thou met the demand,so we gladly thank thee

The Nail's Reflection

by

Alfy Andrews

Iam hard, I pierce and cause pain,for Iam very sharp
those fingers that use me may never fiddle a harp
The Roman soldier licks my head with a solid hammer
And I go through the flesh of people with ill-manner
Only once in history upon sinful earth's land
I came in contact with a beautiful and noble hand
Those hands were clean and soft as rose petals
I pierced and went through ,for Iam just cruel metal
The blood that smeared me,was pure as from a spotless lamb
then I knew,those petals are from the rose of Sharon
Oh! how I wish that dark day, me a ruthless nail
Would turn out to be blunt, and crucifixion fails
But glory to God, though I caused Lord Jesus pain
He beat the foe,saved His own and He rose again.

Scuba diver

by

Alfy Andrews

Once a diver plunged into the depths
He wanted to study and explore
This desire sprouted step by step
His eyes wanted to see the ocean floor
The vast aqua left him spell bound
underneath was a new world found
As he swimmed like a fish beneath
He heard a gentle and friendly sound
Hi dear homosapien, the dolphin said
What motivated you to visit us?
The diver replied ,ive come not to kill
neither to catch nor destroy
But according to my captain's will
I dived in, so as to see you all
For though i live on terrestrial land
My passion's for the deep blue sea
thats why iam a scubadiver, cant you see
Lord Jesus ,though you are seated on high
yet Lord thine heart is always on earth
like the scuba diver who enters cold waters
Lord thou from heaven entered sinful earth
despising heavenly comfort thou didst strive
thank you Lord for thou didst dive,thou didst dive!

We are Proud

by

Alfy Andrews

Not by Joseph's will did Mary concieve
Her womb under divine will did recieve
A baby formed by HolySpirit,from heaven
In the appointed hour in lowly cattle shed
did the saviour come, the true living bread
In human flesh, salvation He brings
For all men, who to their sins cling
As a man our Lord toiled well
A carpenter to carve wood and sell
He did feel the pain of hunger and thirst
On the cruel cross His mettle did not burst
Our Lord with an unwavering will did plod
And through His death the satan's head He trod
Lord ,thanks for chosing us ,though we are few
For we are proud to be members of Christ's crew.

Salute to the Bible

by

Alfy Andrews

Heaven and earth may fade and flee
flora and fauna were never meant to be
nothing lasts forever, even you and me
stars and planets in numbers great & few
all life will perish ,without a trace residue
gadgets of science and machines that work
will all one day vanish into the murk
forever & ever this surely shall stay
mark this utterance, hear our Lord say
'The Bible' by no means shall pass away.

A shameful deed

by

Alfy Andrews

ugliest crimes are often committed
strange FIRs also are submitted
the bomb's out of trigger and fuse
sins in all lands cut loose
this is the sin of child abuse
blame it on all perverse men
for dollars, pounds and yen
none can this crime really justify
it is a thing for all to lament and cry
Adam's fallen race needs Jesus
otherwise we would end in pieces

My struggle and pain

by

Alfy Andrews

Lord your love is all that I need
Father thine tenderness embraces me
Day by day I made your heart bleed
Eventhough Iam saved , Iam set free
Jesus I can feel your tender care
Daily your steadfast love follows
Lord yourlove is beyond any compare
To ,love thats green like meadows
I must graze on it forever and ever
Lord still my heart's for wild thorns
Often I fail to love you with fervour
To love and honour thee I was born
Father, my heart's agitated and sad
By remaining lukewarm ,Iam still bad
Jesus,I cannot physically see thee
Is that the primary reason
For my inability to fall in love
Jesus,Can I not fall in love with you?
Thy word, says thats what I must do
My spirit's strong,but flesh's weak
Jesus all my attempts have gone in vain
My Lord fetter me to love thee always
Jesus , this is my struggle and pain.

Where is peace?

by

Alfy Andrews

All over the world ,in all homes there is noise
partly due to girls and partly due to boys
All over the world , in all forests there is noise
partly due to animals and partly due to bird's voice
All over the world , in all factories there is noise
partly due to machines and partly due to alloys
All over the world , everywhere there is activity
partly they are serious and partly they are funny
Fine all is fine, but where is quietness and peace?
Aint no solid peace even when all activities cease
Yes I find absolute peace, when I lock the door
When in submission my knees bow, and contacts the floor
The time I spend with my saviour Jesus is so sweet
This communion with Him is stirring and complete
This blessed hour of quiet time makes the soul active
It is filled with the peace that the world cannot give

Pain

by

Alfy Andrews

Just a little pin prick
Or an unintentional fall
Teacher's chastening with a stick
Or stumbling over a soccer ball
Just heard a few hurting words
Or saw a disheartening scene
The death of a visiting bird
or the suicide of a spoilt teen
Children begging daily bread
Or animals dying in captivity
Behind evil, people are lead
Or any colonial activity
These are the few pains in life
A pain which no man can endure
Was inflicted upon the one so pure
The pain He suffered on the cross
would all the above pains surpass
Lord Jesus thanks for accepting pain
By thy deeds Lord,the slayer was slain

Madam Bubble

by

Alfy Andrews

There she comes like the angel of light
Beauty unparalleled,captivating my sight
She speaks and her mouth drips with honey
I then follow her foot steps blindly
When the caverns of my mind are empty
She orginates from nowhere so promptly
Till now I dont remember her beautiful face
though she is present during my backsliden days
Sometimes she is wheatish and sometimes blonde
She soon separates from me as a weak ionic bond
Her voluptous curves and suppleness of walk
Titillate me ,and I behind her foolishly stalk
When I close my eyes she is there to charm
Bit by bit she will bring me much harm
The kisses she gives me and the close hug
Is as deadly as the bite of the 'killer'bug
I know not her creed,race,culture and nation
she is just the product of every man's imagination
Who said all men are strong and all women weak?
For under her spell the noblest would freak
Lord Jesus save me from this "Madam Bubble"
I neither could love her nor hate her
For in my loneliness she brings sweet trouble
Lord is this all due to my testosterone
Like a defeated believer, Iam beaten and blown
Jesus thou gave me XY chromosome & an active mind
Teach me Lord, always to think clean thoughts
And forever in thee, happiness and pleasure find.

Kiss the Son

by

Alfy Andrews

Indiscipline was my way,life and love
I neglected my saviour who looked from above
Could Jesus be angry or tender as a dove?
The Holy spirit said,death is sin's wage
How long in His love, will I take advantage?
To the bridegroom, the bride must bow
Let me return as the prodigal did, now
Pardon me Lord Jesus,for my life's thats amiss
Grant me grace,and retrieve to me spiritual bliss
Let me Lord in humbleness, thy beautiful feet kiss.

Shelter Above

by

Alfy Andrews

"Home sweet home" did the starved tramp sing
To earn a supper and strength to his body bring
Shelter one of man's legitimate basic needs
For this men must toil without any greed
A garish house bringeth social status to family
With cosy comforts within,does good to progeny
The rich of the world build amazing mansions
Rooms aplenty,all built by skilled masons
Their hearts are set on riches and filled with pride
But as believers whatever be our lot on earth
We may be rich or poor ,but Jesus is on our side
There is a promise for every believer in Him to cherish
When clocks become still and our mortal lives perish
Rich and poor believers will gather unto the living bread
The Lord of Hosts does ,as promised to his beloved
Lord Jesus always spoke the truth, He never lied
Mansions are getting ready for His own, to be occupied
Let us all hope and cheer, for sure there is shelter above
So gladly will our souls fly, to embrace our Lord, our Love

Dont Worry

by

Alfy Andrews

Lord Jesus I come to thee, with a story
I will stay and say , Iam in no hurry
Lord Ive sinned, please my sins bury
cleanse my sin and make me shiny
Lord wipe my tears and say dont worry.

Shine Forever

by

Alfy Andrews

Testimony of His children,holds a beacon of light
To make all of Christ's children bright
A light amidst darkness to chase away fright
A salt amongst the blind to render sight
So let us all forever like a sunbeam shine
As a witness let us say,Iam His and He is mine
Oh a testimony marred through a halted fight
Is to order darkness, to bring back the night.

we will win

by

Alfy Andrews

From the moment we wake from our sleep
Till slumber to our eyelids creep
The tempter is fighting for mind's ground
If slackness in doing His Will be found
All vices in us he will try to trigger
To make us spiritually a crazy figure
Let us not yield to the roar of the sly lion
For as Christ's children we must march to Zion
Lord Jesus Christ can alone gain us victory
Our innumerable falls will be forgot as history

not a stain but a scar

by

Alfy Andrews

My friend you could search in my life, many a fault
My brother in Christ, you could trace back my black spot
Iam no longer ashamed,listen to the explanation Ive got
Who am I?,Whats my strength?,nothing cause Iam dust
You may be strong but Iam a weak soul,remember that first
It pleased God to save us both,His work is not in vain
You brought Him glory,but I fell,gave His heart much pain
I sinned and I was mauled by the tempter, I bore the stain
I then cried to Jesus to forgive me, and He gladly did
Now my Soul's nigh to my saviour, once it went afar
My past life He forgot, and now teaches my hands to war
now brother dont look down upon me,for Iam only wearing a scar.

They Struck Him

by

Alfy Andrews

My Lord,thou didst face physical and verbal abuse
For they mockingly said 'Hail King of Jews'
Jesus thou did not hide your beautiful face
From soldiers who hit it with a hard pace
Even they dared to spit upon you, the sinless one
suffering shame,to do thy Father's will as His son
They even plucked the hairs from thy beard
Inflicting pain,even when your cry they heard
Lord how did you endure pain and shame?
losing your honour and heavenly fame
Jesus to save us, did you recieve all the blows?
Lord to redeem sinners,did your pure blood flow?
Yes my King this is true, for the Bible tells us so
With one voice we all thank thee for setting us free
My God, My God ,thanks for thou did not forsake me.

Radiation

by

Alfy Andrews

Nucleus is the atom's central station
If in it there happens a transformation
The atom spits out characteristic radiation
The nucleus of every man is the heart
It has been sinful and bad from the start
When we accept Christ's salvation
Our hearts undergo an inner transformation
Since Christ's blood does the purification
Sins are cleansed, there is total reformation
As a transformed nucleus spits radiation
Let our witnessing light radiate to the nation.

Just a poor theory

by

Alfy Andrews

Dark and dull, there was nothing
Not a source, not even a living thing
Atheists say, out of a bang we all evolved
Plunged in darkness,all the planets revolved
How foolish is to say, the mystery is solved
Scientists believe in a clever theory
Blinded by satan,who the idea of creation tries to bury
The eternal truth is higher than scientific reason
Heavenly acts need not lend to scientific experimentations
From apes to men is just an erroneous imagination
The most intelligent evolutionists still search in the night
In their dark benighted minds,they prefer to walk by sight
But as believers in Christ,By faith we believe it all started
When the creator our Almighty God said "Let there be Light".

Blessed

by

Alfy Andrews

Once I was wriggling in my own ways
In and through sins, a hopless case
The Lord on high valued me a worm
His love for me always did burn
While I was a sinner,Jesus loved me so
For my sake Lord Jesus to calvary did go
Jesus my Lord bled and died on the tree
His blood cleansed my sins,now Iam free
There is joy because of blessings showered
For blessed is the man whose sins are covered.

One Day

by

Alfy Andrews

As silver ore, is a man impure within
Born as a sinner, conceived in sin
The weakness of the flesh, drags one down
Christ's blood flowed on the cross so brown
It saves all sinners who repent of their misdeeds
His saving grace makes us sons of God,a unique creed
Abiding in His will , we find peace forever
He alone can make us fine jewelry,and vessels of honour
This world may or may not sense our presence and worth
For believers can never stand toe to toe with the world
Jesus has made us pilgrims & sojourners, not of this earth
This terrestrial ball will hate and never love us
They may all make fun of His name,ridicule and spite
As our Lord said, we all must endure and not fight
For in that day,tongues of every nation will say He is the way
Soon yea very soon every knee will bow to Him one day

Authority

by

Alfy Andrews

Under His feet, kingdoms rise and fall
He rules, He is the Lord of all
Riding over the clouds, He holds dominion
The dead and the living obey to Him in union
The Father loved Him, and gave all in His hand
So Jesus has command over every sea and land
All nations and tribes will one day bow their knee
Under the Son of the Highest, we will be happy and free.

A failing man's Hope

by

Alfy Andrews

Habitual sins, willing done always pressed
The Holy spirit's call was supressed
Passing pleasures and sins, I was loving
Staying for long in the phase called backsliding
One day I decided to quit that easy broad way
So on my knees to Jesus, a prayer, I went on to say
Lord Jesus forgive this wretch, and show compassion
Please fetter and subdue my heart's sinful passions
My saviour my God, I need a second chance, please give
Come thou into my heart and rule it wholly and live
Jesus I know that thou wilt pardon, and make my heart glee
For thou will all my sins toss into the depths of the sea.

Red eyes

by

Alfy Andrews

Have we thought, what it costs to be diligent
Let us ask the ants which slumber not
They say, little sleep to eyes ,make it red hot
For time and oppurtunities live short
If we want to stand before mighty kings
Let us all be passionate to do God's will
Hard work and His will done alone brings
Showers of blessings from His treasure mill.

I will trust Thee

by

Alfy Andrews

In all of life's tumult and changing circumstances
To drift and waver, are liable chances
But from zion's hill orginate,rich & flowing sources
This shall be our portion amidst our gains & losses
Father, thy love and providence is full and its free
Jesus, only help us to forever trust in thee
To us who are weak,thou will give strength in huge proportions
When we trust thee under all of life's conditions.

Grace our fuel

by

Alfy Andrews

To all men, young and old
to the feeble,strong and bold
unmerited favour comes from our Lord
It is freely showered by God
Amazing grace is how it is called
rendered to the sinful soul's that's mauled
No not by works, lest we boast
Lord Jesus loves the humble, the most
Grace from God makes us live
More than His son , What He can give?
We have recieved grace in His son
Amazing grace has our hearts won
Lord often we stumble, we all fall
Thy saving grace, daily, saves us all
Lord thou want us to run the race well
so thou hast given thine grace, as our fuel.

Heartfelt Gratitude

by

Alfy Andrews

Father your love for me, goes beyond the grave
for thou o Lord my saviour came down to save
I cant imagine my life without thee in it
for graces aplenty ,umpteen favours and gifts
Thou my sweet God has showered, upon me a sinner
No not one favour or blessing do I deserve
For all this and more, which I have recieved
Jesus my King I give my heartfelt gratitiude

More than these

by

Alfy Andrews

Iam a believer and Jesus loves me
Yet this world has a hold on me
I relax by watching comedy on TV
When men, just one another tease
I stock up my fridge with candies
cookies, pizzas and tasty cheese
I love orchids and delicious fruits
always busy planting those trees
Iam not properly covered at the beach
basking under the sun for breeze
Iam also passionate for machines
my hands full of oil and grease
I work and save all the money I can
bit proud in holding my safe's keys
I yearn for holidays,so that iam free
to ride a horse or play golf at ease
I also take my glittering car out
asking my mom, one more ride please
One day I remembered a song, so cool
I used to sing that in my sundayschool
The world behind me, the cross before me
no turning back, no turning back
The song clearly gave my mind a whack
and I started to think sensibly...
Did I love the world more than my Jesus?
I was ashamed as I did what my flesh pleases
Then I heard a still small voice calling
My son do you love me, more than these?

High Hopes

by

Alfy Andrews

A man lived on the high solid rock
Like a wise man, He chose Christ
But at times he comes down to land
To plunge himself into the miry clay
Though he knows, his is the narrow way
He lingers in the mud,forgetting the rock above
Yea he is a guy who took advantage of God's love
Lord cant help, he says on his knees
Still our Lord Jesus graciously forgives
The healing of Christ's once shed blood
With might lifts him from the miry mud
It chastens ,gives hope and quickens him
The merit of Jesus's blood, saves him
As he slowly climbed back to the rock on high
He thanked Jesus, who for all once did die.

Help me to Love

by

Alfy Andrews

When I know thine commands, I must obey
I must then follow, when I know the right way
I should not grope , when there is light
When the victory is won, Why should I fight?
How can I be bound by cords of great length?
When Iam set free, when there is strength
How can I linger to those cherished bad habits?
When the old man must be done away bit by bit
How can I with perverse ways,my flesh satisfy?
While I with His Spirit must this flesh mortify
How can I foolishly embrace a glamorous concubine?
When I should abide with my first Love, like a vine
Oh...how can I do this wicked thing before my Love?
How can I fail to reciprocate to this Love from above?
Lord Jesus, My feet ran haste to evil and I have hurt thee
Lord Jesus, break my cold heart...help me to Love THEE

Forgot to pray

by

Alfy Andrews

During the night ,strange sounds I hear
Sometimes spine-chilling , I fear
Images of no meaning ,roll befor my eyes
Sometimes small, also big in size
Why should my mind refuse to rest?
I see, lots of trash my mind molest.
I get up from the bed and I begin to say
What really went wrong today?
Then out of the dark clouds came a bright ray
Illuminating my mind it began to say
Son, throught the day, you forgot to pray!

Lord I know

by

Alfy Andrews

From the subatomic particle thats so small
To the atom that makes up one and all
From the precise assemblage of atoms so well
Molecules are born to form organelles
Which play key roles in a cell's birth
Soon life sprouts in our planet earth
Lord Jesus, when I see all this, how can I respond?
Humbly I acknowledge thine work's worth
For Thine hand led every atom with one another to bond

Genuine Love

by

Alfy Andrews

There is a love that will not caress
This love can only be more and not less
There is a love that will not fondle
This love can onble
There is a love that will n+   - ot pamper
This love can chasten but not hamper
There is a love that will not lust
This love will love the unlovable first
There is a love that will not kiss
This love will give the soul much bliss
There is a love that this world cannot give
This love will not die but make us live
There is a love that will not demand
This love serves and fills our hand
There is a love that knows not divorce
This love will never toss you off course
There is a ld died
This love shall all our-  o sins hide
There is a love that will not give pleasure
This love is more than hidden treasure
This love from my King Jesus, I will cherish
It saved me from hell, where I would have perished

Lord Incline me

by

Alfy Andrews

Lord Honestly I want to know?
What if my passions start to flow
The inclination to rebel is there
I in my contempt say , I dont care
My heart constantly craves for pleasure
When it should be filled with the Spirit
Thine shed blood did wash all my stain
I behave as though all was in vain
Lord I dont know, why Iam not abiding
Iam unable to leave, Iam still clinging
To the relatively good and the bad
Lord my love to fine arts and music
Wean me from loving thee completely
Lord what to do, Iam so sick
Lord Incline me to listen and obey
For to love thee is the best way
Lord help me, Lord help me.........

Save me from the virgin

by

Alfy Andrews

The lofty mountain may crumble
like the crusts of dry bread
All men may foolishly stumble
when they are full and rumpfed
The python may stir and be awake
Waiting all day for the prey
The foundations of man will shake
When beauty overshadows the day
like the redwood which breaks
man is fragile,sometimes so fake
In all lands the virgin takes her toll
adorned or simple she makes him fall
Thats normal,yea due to hormones
But Lord,my love for thee she eats
Now Iam bare, reduced to a bag of bones
Lord she interferes , she competes
My God,above my flesh I could not rise
How can I avoid the second look?
Lord make me wise, Lord make me wise.

Pass me not

by

Alfy Andrews

Lord the hardest thing for me to do
Is to think about thy second coming
As the drying of the morning dew
This thought rarely is sprouting
Jesus you will come one day for me
Thine own you will recieve
Lord but I forget to wait and see
I act as though I dont believe
Lord teach me to look at the sky
And eagerly see, atleast once a day
To expect thine coming before I die
Jesus Pass me not, while on your way.

Love Is Jesus

by

Alfy Andrews

Love ,in sorrow or pain
love will again and again
follow through the terrain
love will never refrain
love shall adopt all strain
love gives and plays no game
love ,yes love,shall only remain
faithful even in sunshine or rain
for love will never love in vain
Love manifested in Him,Jesus is His name
yesterday today and forever the same.

Filled with color

by

Alfy Andrews

The lily's odour I smell
The roses all bloom
Their petals all do swell
As fragrance fills the room
When I see these beauties
My eyes are filled with color
They remind of heavenly duties
on seeing Thine Handiwork's splendour
I must marvel at Thine abilities
Lord Thy word says of Thee
As the Lily of the valley
Thou art beautiful,God's only son
Jesus THE BEAUTIFUL ROSE OF SHARON.

Help us to Cleave

by

Alfy Andrews

Amidst decay and dung
and biting coldness
When doom metal is sung
along with sensuousness
The hungry cry aloud
while the cobra hisses
The rich parade so proud
And millions of kisses
Are wasted in phony love
The persecutor lurks
I see the vulture,not the dove
Not the light,but the murk
The ungodly slayer slams
Lord we are here thine lambs
Amidst wolves, we live
Jesus We know thou art near
Keep us from effects of scams
Lord, give us courage
Against men who can damage
We know thou will never leave
Still inside there is fear
Help us unto Thee cleave.

my greatest need

by

Alfy Andrews

Tons of money and happiness
yea lots of them
Many adorable garments to dress
yea lots of them
Diamonds,gold and platinum
yea lots of them
Houses, mansions and asylums
yea lots of them
Horses,pets and exotic lands
yea lots of them
Great music to hear from bands
yea lots of them
Lots of delicious food to choose
yea lots of them
Many passions for flesh to cut loose
yea lots of them
Neither pestilence nor disease
No not one of them
A life full of prosperity and success
No failure, not one
Oh...I hear the LORD LAUGH.........
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
My son, you can't have both of the cities
For this is carnality
Either Zion or Babylon is available
For the way isnt double
The single narrow way is for the reborn
This leads to zion alone
When I heard this, I realized my folly
For Christ Himself is costly
More than all that exists in this earth
What else should I need?
Lord to possess me thou didst bleed
Lord forever let thee be my urgent need.
Let Jesus alone be my greatest need.

Dissapointment

by

Alfy Andrews

When the roses bloom in full
Hearts are cheerful and glad
Soon the petal shrinks and it's dull
The merry heart turns sad
Why should roses colorfully bloom?
And why should it wither and die?
Where did the fragrance go from the room?
And why some things in life make us cry?
Lord, you will be swift to wipe our tears
For better things may come to fill our years
Jesus,help us learn from every dissapointment
as lessons from thee to cherish
For negative answers to prayers are sent
as life's positives for us to nourish.

It is imputed not achieved

by

Alfy Andrews

Hey world ,Ive got something to say
About the truth, which showed me the way
For a moment let your pride crumble
listen, for this reaches only to the humble
You may be rumpfed in this world today
But beyond the grave, do you want to starve?
You may say, i serve the poor, i daily pray
You may be good, disciplined and humane
For before God, all good works go in vain
So hear and believe what God has to say
Dear earthlings ,let this be conceived
That righteousness by man cannot be achieved
For it is imputed, it is by grace recieved
Jesus God's only son can impute it for free
For He for all of our sins died on the tree
No other sage or saint can redeem our souls
Neither temples nor churches can give us hope
Like the pebbles in running stream that rolls
Meditation , chants will only lead us to grope
For nothing can be done by us to gain heaven
By Christ's shed blood alone,we can be forgiven.
Let this truth be known, let Christ in
For He loves you, and He will forgive all your sins
This eternal truth , let it now vibrate in rhyme
The GOOD NEWS will tower over the wrecks of time.

Let us all smile

by

Alfy Andrews

It warms as well as cools you
It is never kept, given away and it's true
This can bind hearts, works like glue
It rocks and chases away the blues
It lights up this dark world today
For the red zone will better expressions say
The normal curvature can liven up kindness
For this is one of the graceful attractiveness
15 muscles join to make the face blossom
The air becomes clean for miles
When this earth is filled with smiles
When we have Jesus, why should we be sad?
For in Him our merry hearts should be glad.
Though it's hate and beguile all the while
Lord, help us to greet one another with a smile

I learn from the Eagle

by

Alfy Andrews

Up above on the clear gray blue sky
There is a majestic eagle soaring high
She stirrs from slumber,and starts to fly
Crosses valleys as the days go by
Her nest she leaves, not in sorrow or pain
But she strives, for some prey to gain.
She flies so high , yet her eyes look below
Her focuss lies unchanged, as she glides
She in no doubt, is the master of the skies
But I see myself in the slough of despond
How can I stick onto the beggarly elements?
Oh I must like a sensible man respond
To the call of the saviour that's been sent
By the power of His shed blood, I will rise
Like the eagle I will soar in the skies
Liberated with power,I will fly non-stop
Yea by His Saving grace, I will rise
From depths of wickedness to the mountain top

How could I be such a fool?

by

Alfy Andrews

Miles to go on this narrow road
It's hard with many a foe
I try to look around and deviate
To a easy way leading to heaven's gate
Like a lonely bird that would drift
I fly offcourse, yea I try to shift
Soon I find that Ive entered forbidden waters
Like a lost fish I search for my school
Oh.,the narrow way seems to far better
Let me get back, How could I be such a fool?

safe from the darts

by

Alfy Andrews

On my long and narrow way to Zion
some days I forget to pray
Those days I hear the roaring lion
With mouth open, pouncing on the prey
I soon feel the pain all over me pass
Why do I bleed?..why am I wounded?
Then I discover Darts as the cause
yea darts from beelzebub, on me targeted
I then run to the closet and kneel
And say a prayer to Jesus, to heal
For underneath His blood,security I feel

Three Darts

by

Alfy Andrews

These often fall on me
Like hail amidst thunder storm
It feels like Iam stung by honey bees
Yea, they are sent to cause harm
while I tread, where I must not tread
I see the tempter's net wide spread
I stoop down and pick three darts
To my amazement I see them all labeled
Two for my head and the third for my heart
They are all potent even when disabled
The darts read "From beelzebub to weak men"
Ranging from 'Mirror,Music and Maiden'.

I see you the most Jealous

by

Alfy Andrews

Lord you are making me cry
I cannot control though I may try
The tears roll down so swiftly
Like the withered foliage from the tree
Jesus, why do you ask me to leave?
The few things to which I closely cleave
For Ive kept them from my childhood
I allocated the choice closets of my heart
To those things, yea by them I stood
Lord, now they have all ingrained into my parts
Father I have to die,if I need to put them away
Lord I love them , Jesus, please let them stay
Jesus I love you too, yea I want you both
But Lord ,you are not willing, though I take an oath
Jesus my King , I see you the most Jealous
For you want nothing to interfere between us

Filled with color

by

Alfy Andrews

Love to be a star in the sky
Or like a bird flying high
Like the salmon that's present
Wanna swim against the current
But I neither can twinkle
Nor can i reach the skies at my will
For I was not born to cut the waves
Iam a man , created , not to be still
But to be in action for God's will
Yea His purposes alone should my life fill
Cant be a star,bird or a salmon with gills

The Human Blood Speaks

by

Alfy Andrews

I flow swiftly through vessels
like a bullet from the gun
My duty lies in nourishing all the cells
I must enter the four chambered organ
From the two large veins, I enter forcefully
Like a gushing wind I ooze out of the artery
Aint no competing force,I flow without strife
Doctors have called me "BLOOD",the river of life
From my rich circulating experience,I got this to say
Human Heart is the most perverse from ages old, till today.

let it rain

by

Alfy Andrews

when the clouds all assemble
Like the parts of a jigsaw puzzle
unsolved they lie scattered
Waiting to empty and then refill
The thunder makes the feeble tremble
creating sweet noise,leaves the soil battered.
Along with lightning comes a blessing
Water to lands and parched throats
Lord please send thine blessings as rain
let it fall on us,though we dont deserve
Jesus let thine blessings chase away the pain
Lord let them rain on us, let it rain.

Mortify

by

Alfy Andrews

With a heart that bleeds
And a mind that wants to fly
With eyes filled with tears
my flesh constantly pleads
For those juicy forbidden pears
It cries dont mortify,dont mortify
But the Spirit said, let me rule
Oh Iam betwixt in this great war
Where I must be wise,not a fool
The FLESH vs The spirit
The spirit filled life must I embrace
The flesh must scarcely show it's face
Lord discipline me and mortify.

Away from the Guitar Riff

by

Alfy Andrews

From the strings of every electric guitar
Amazing music,that charms is heard from afar
Sins that ravish my soul fiddle like a rock star
Mine iniquities are like a ripping guitar work
They are archived as classics that loudly yell
My frame and my heart should be a rose petal
But now it's moving to the beat of heavy metal
listening to songs and curious to know what's in store
The Guitar Riff in it ,leaves me craving for more
Lord Jesus melt my heart that's hard and stiff
Forgive my sins which are as tall as a cliff
Help me to run away from the guitar riff.

small things

by

Alfy Andrews

Little joys and passing pleasures
like the quick but beautiful sunset
find their pace,for they are earthly treasures
Life is beautiful , I dare not fret
As the night must give way to clear sight
Earthly pleasures must fade into bright light
The sweets that ravished my taste buds
Gave sucrose molecules that floated in my blood
The raiments and garments made me happy and gay
And the smiles thrown at me, made my day
Small things made me happy,like the cruise
A game of soccer chased away the blues
Holidays and Icecreams, childhood was cool
Lord thanks for creating me in your footstool
Though Iam growing older, I shall not worry
For the little joys will my woe bury
When thine Hand covers me , Life is beautiful
Yes Lord ,small things make this life colorful

lesson from the fall

by

Alfy Andrews

Amidst brightness and splendour
Where no darkness shall enter
The anointed cherub gracefully walked
Amidst the stones, arrayed in jewelry
Ah when the high minded thought crossed
The stage was set for some rivalry
That day his stupidity brightly shone
When he thought to claim his creator's throne.
This secret ambition, his mouth didnt tell
For his very thought,he found himself in hell
Pride led to the fall, Who can with my God compete?
Lucifer the chosen one himself faced defeat.
Let us all accept His authourity and obey
For Christ the Creator is the Truth, the Life, the Way.

Image of God

by

Alfy Andrews

Heavenly Father, creator of all that exists.
With the clay a miracle did perform
All thy works , till end of time may persist
First a man and then a woman came to form
Thy Wisdom and ways are high and unsearchable
For Thou art Holy , High and Mightly able
Immortal God of Dark, Ice and the Modern age
Lord though we are just flesh , bones and cartilage
Thou hast created all of us in your own great Image.

Fine Jewelry

by

Alfy Andrews

As a silver ore , is a man impure within
Born as a sinner , concieved in sin
The dross our weakness of flesh, drags us down
Christ whose blood , flowed on the cross so brown
Can save all sinners who repent of their misdeeds
He exalts wretched men as sons of God, a different creed
Let us obey His will and abide in the heavenly silver smith
For He can alone increase our worth, yea for us He did bleed
Jesus can make the impure silver ore into vessels of honor
Let us yield to His craftmanship and refinement power
None can save a man completely than the man of calvary
One day this impure silver ore will be fine jewelry

Heaven has called out our name

by

Alfy Andrews

Roses did fully bloom
Lilies did not wither and die
The odour filled the room
our sorrows vanished , they did fly
our heart was once torn
And our souls did stink
Now forever joy is born
Heaviness did now shrink
Blood from the innocent lamb did fall
On our sinful and wicked souls
Lucifer had to face defeat, and bear the gall
For Jesus's blood made us whole
Now the glitter and glamor of this terrestrial ball
Are of no meaning,for they are dust and dross
Let our weary souls always find relief in the cross
How can we search for identity and earthly fame?
When this world would hate all who bear His holy name
This shall be our joy , this shall be our fame
For Heaven has called out our name!
yea Heaven has called out our name!

will my soul rise?

by

Alfy Andrews

The seas are roaring
Waves over me are rolling
saline water on me is flowing
On these tempestous waters i ride
Soon i may be swept away by the tide
The ship is tossed and the night is dark
Underneath swims the great white shark
I fear that blue waters may be my grave
Who can this helpless man now save?
Though my flesh sink down into the depths
Will my soul rise above the liquid steps?
Then i heard a sweet voice from heaven
crying, deep deep as the deepest sea
Is the saviour's love for the sinner
Now i know that His blood shall set me free
That day the tempestous sea was at peace
The inner cry for a saving love did cease
Safe to the shore, yea My Jesus is the winner!.

Great Name

by

Alfy Andrews

Jesus the name , no mortal shall ever keep
That name shall make all enemies of God weep
This name is high and demands submition and praise
For by His cleansing blood, saints shall raise
Surely the sorrows of every sinner He can erase
yes beautiful is His name, Let His children on Him gaze
His glorious name is uttered in all the nations
Surely His name and fame endureth to all generations.

Axe and the Tree

by

Alfy Andrews

Down in the valley, I saw a tree:
Amidst the lush green mountain grass
It was withered wild and free
Amidst gold and diamonds it was the brass
Though watered by torrential rains and dew
It stood like a poor starved child
Is it because of the strong wind that blew?
Or due to the acid rain that poured down so mild
Why amidst fertility there is lack of foliage?
And the fruit is nowhere to be found
Oh upon this hill , you give a sorry image.
Thine wood would soon be logs that are brown
For you failed to bear fruit, the axe will cut down!
To the tree that's barren the axe shall come
To kill and cut the tree that does not blossom
Therefore let us be firmly rooted in Him so dear
When we abide and bear fruit, how can the axe come near?

Lesson from the stray dog

by

Alfy Andrews

I saw a dog dwelling in garbage
It was upto some reversible damage
Though rumpfed with no lack of food
The trash it relished it as good
This made the dog sick and worser
Still the canine would near the trash linger
Often it would with sorrow spit
soon with joy it returns to its own vomit.
How I loathe that dog , oh how unclean?
How can it behave in a way that's so mean
Soon I learn that as for me there's a lesson
Let me quietly recollect , let me reason
The trash was the cherised sin, I wouldnt let go
And me the stray dog that would relish it so
Time and time again I would gobble and spit
Yes I came for more , I returned to my own vomit.
Lord Thou can alone change the heart of mine ( the dead dog )
Lord the impurities within , please unclog.

Care and Guidance throught

by

Alfy Andrews

When thy fingers our bodies did form
In our mothers wombs so warm
Care was bestowed without harm
Lord safely thou brought us out
Fed us and we all became stout
We all grew under thine care always
Thou kept a watchful eye on all our ways
Thou saved us on predestined days
Soon we fell,weak and unable to rise
Crushed by the tempter's wiles
Thine shed blood fought back as love's token
Often down yet we were alive with faith unshaken
When the tumultous waters stopped roaring
We were kept safe through the storm by thine preserving
Through slippery paths Grace has taught us to read
To live out the Bible can only be the masculine deed
Often we fail but solace we find in Thine embrace
Grace and Mercy all along this Narrow way
Once we were all lost but now we are found
Jesus our Guide thou will take us to higher ground!.

A difficult expenditure

by

Alfy Andrews

Every man's ambition is to make money
Men rob,men kill, men strive, it's so funny
Riches obtained through toil, is a good gain
Men and women survive, the work isnt vain
Will riches be as a perpetual source?
No it is volatile, as one spends not a force
Could preserve it for ages, as it has wings
Along with comforts,unneccessary worries it brings
Let money fly from hand to hand,be it just a penny
Let's use it for God's glory,before it runs away like a bunny.

The pain of a Pilgrim

by

Alfy Andrews

The deciever keeps on stealing
My desire to be completly yielding
Though my heart is willing
Lucifer by deciet and lying
Leads me to unreal day dreaming
Constantly a web is he weaving
The fire to obey is he extinguishing
through my weaknesses and failings
Like a kid who is often playing
Iam still under childish craving
Little pleasures keep on satisfying
But deep within, my heart is aching
Lord my soul like a new born is crying
Holy Spirit satisfy my inner craving
Discipline me , and always keep me abiding
Lord let thine heart near me, be binding
Lord attend to this pilgrim,Whose heart is paining.

Let Falling Down Cease

by

Alfy Andrews

Jealous is my God, Lord Jesus Christ
Yea He wants in my heart the entire place
He desires to invade every inch of space
Even legitimate things cannot compete
For He wants my soul full and complete
Many worldly things I must lose
That thought alone brings tears and blues
Him and His will alone I must obey
Iam in the Narrow way , the only way
Every believer's life must operate by Principles
God alone laid the way for His disciples
I cannot escape however I may try
I dived into the ocean or upwards I may fly
I always fell back into His loving arms
Things that I love my God hates
What I neglect is His will for me
My lot is clear and Iam set free
The Lord demands 100% sincerity
Jesus enthrall me by thine quickening power
Help me from sloth,thine Healing on me shower
Lord move my heart to say , No turning back please
Amidst this turmoil , let falling down cease.

An Young Ship

by

Alfy Andrews

An young ship made ready for the high seas
Its hope only on Lord Jesus it believes
Onwards to higher port ,the world it must hate
Leaving only Lord Jesus Christ to Navigate
Young as it was , Prone to wander
On deep waters away and yonder
Sometimes behaving without any sense
Thwarted by the storms of adolescence
Plodding through the waters towards destination
Battling the cyclones of life's ocean
It was assaulted,beaten by tempting waves
Tossed to and fro for several days
The young ship even survived through the bermuda triangle
It also was assaulted by beelzebub's arrows from all angles
The reason simple , Give thanks a ton
It was due to Lord Jesus Christ the wise captain
The young ship all its way faced damage
But never no never complete wreckage
The young ship will soon become old
Yet it will not sink, for its anchor will hold.

Only Gospel Bands

by

Alfy Andrews

Tunes and lyrics for which my heart craved
Melodies of Babylon, to my senses appealed
Radio I wouldnt miss though by His blood
Rock n Roll,Rap n Pop in its fulness revealed
Precious time and energy misspent , forever lost
My senses beguiled and ravished , here I stand
Jesus shall heal my tossed mind atlast
Let me for good, tune only to Gospel bands.

The lonely Rose

by

Alfy Andrews

O beautiful rose amidst thorns and weeds
Here Iam , can you look at me?
Splendour springs forth from a humble seed.
Aroma piercing and its all free
Look at me ,let go the fear and look at me
Dont droop down so low, dont be dejected
I know you are sad, for you were once rejected
Now cheer up lonely rose the time has come
Let your sorrow be soon turned into Joy and fun
Soon you will be cut off from this cursed soil
Though down here amidst thorns , dirt and dross
on the king's table you will be placed in a special vase

Penitence of a Believer

by

Alfy Andrews

Lord I have tasted thy love, my saviour
Thou pardoned all my sins due to wrong behaviour
But day by day , my iniquities grew thicker
My christian life was outward show and glitter
Though every morning before Thee I bow
Lord with all my heart ,I did not love
My praise slowly became a product of memory
Deep within I was cold without harmony
I knew that infinestamal sins are toxic(even one gram )
Still my everyday repentance was not sincere but sham
Jesus look at me the weak believer, please mould
Lord by thine power thou can change a wretch into gold
Jesus please pardon the sins of this unfaithful bride
Give me another chance,bind me near you to abide.

Thy brother shall rise again

by

Alfy Andrews

Martha cried to the Lord, My brother is sick
Our Lord but for two days, to the same place did stick
Did not the woman's humble cry , our Lord move?
Or did Jesus want something else to prove?
It is not unto death, listen , for them who weepeth
The Lord said , our friend, Lazarus just sleepeth
All this happened, so that the son of God will be glorified thereby
At the cave , Jesus said lazarus come forth
Jesus has power over the dead and the living, yea both
Like how Lord Jesus has changed the lives of many
Lazarus life also changed , who hailed from the town of Bethany.

Better than Eden

by

Alfy Andrews

The first human inhabitants were not modern
By God's providence were placed in a garden
Delicious fruits and everflowing water
At all days and seasons till winter
Food without work from January to december
Life was a bliss in the garden every day
But why is so much toil and care found today?
When God intended man to be so royal
Oh Adam and Eve, why did you both fail to be loyal?
Now we face it, as everyday we go to work and toil
Nevertheless let us thank God, who helps us to survive
For He will never leave nor forsake us, we will thrive
Eden was long gone, but let us not worry and cry
Soon we will be in heaven, yes upwards we will fly.

A Higher Hand that Holds

by

Alfy Andrews

I saw a newlywed couple walking
Together their hands clasped they were talking
It seemed they would never let their hands go
I was impressed, but a truth crossed my mind
A hand that holds every believer, yours and mine
Look around,beneath and above for you cannot find
It is much stronger than the couple's clasp, I can feel
It's no strange feeling or emotion but it is real
It is an unseen hand that holds you and me
otherwise we would all fall,it's simple cant you see
How then the weak and the strong both survive?
Because of the hand of God , who is alive
Lord Jesus Christ holds our hands forever
we may stray or run away,but no He will not let go, no never
It is this Holy Hand that we must forever hold
His Hand will guide us even when we are old
Our Lord's love is constant and His love is for all
Human love just leaps and falls in this terrestrial ball
For moods change and hormone levels fall
Wifes and Husbands neither love nor touch always
But Christ's hand will not let go , tender are His ways.
