Should I Still Say Amen?

O summer rain, can you tell me why the sky is gray?
Why would the Northern Wind cause a man like me for this?
I want to understand why some things don't go my way,
For I want to see visions beyond the silver bliss.

Should I really kiss the raindrops that fall on my skin?
Knowing that they represent the tears for every soul.
Or is doing a little selfish pleasure a sin?
Please let me accept by heart that God is in control.

Should I still say amen because there's a better will?
Glory is always acquired through sincere sacrifice.
And if my surrender is the only way uphill,
Then tell me, why should I even bother to think twice?

They say that this self is the hardest one to conquer
Because it is my own will that needs to be traded.
Now I ask my heart on what honor does it prefer,
Let me convince it to choose the one that is guided.

In my hands I hold everything I consider mine
And now I lay them all again in sure abandon.
So let the search for worldly pleasures start to decline
As my own yearnings on the altar I lay upon.

Because this is history, I’ve been with this before
And I feel it's time to have a new testimony.
This is life, in every step of faith there's something more,
I'll just focus to finish the narrow road's journey.

I know God loves me and some answers just have to wait,
All He wants to see is my faith to move this mountain.
So there's no need to do the pattern of this world's fate
Because I can hear Him... all I could say is amen.
Obed dela Cruz



Song Of The Bridegroom

(A Friend of mine asked me to write this for His Bride.)

Far from My enchanting voice you have wandered alone
While other singers and musicians play for your love,
But promise Me that you shall make their music unknown
And the cry of My heart shall you consider above.

When you hear the hymns from the choir of paradise birds
As their sound lead you from the edges of doubts and fears,
Hear Me as I sing with them and listen to my words,
Behold the fading of the deepest darkness that stirs.

And if in the labyrinth harmony lost its way,
Stuck in the maze without a Guide to lead the way out,
I will sing and give to you the golden sky of day,
And make nature reveal the sound that casts away doubt.

My music is far sweeter than the harp of David,
More passionate than the words of ten thousand lovers,
For in the innermost part of Me its roots buried,
Whose blossom shall endure even past the universe.

Come back to Me and let Me fill your head with the song,
The unending chorus to express My love for you.
Sing with Me throughout eternity for life is long,
Each lasting music creates a fresher morning dew.
Obed dela Cruz



Spare The Smile

(Imagine if God tells this to you)

When beauty was yet kept from the eyes of any man
And the masterpiece was yet a Breath of Life away,
You were here in My heart when summertime first began
After the spring gave its first bloom in the light of day.

For you I gave a lasting warmth in a world of ice
Where winter threatened throughout eternity to yield.
I was the One who made it clear for your blinded eyes
To see that I prepared for My love the flow’ry field.

So would you please spare the smile and reserve it for me?
The dawn breaks as light springs forth to appear before love,
But if without your heart it seems things are vanity,
For in my heart, you’re the bride I will bring up above.

Spare the smile and the heart; let them be completely Mine.
I will make you own the start you dreamed of possessing.
Everything shall bow after our pledges combine
For the dominion is ours for our own cherishing.

Share with Me your tears and gladness as you spare the smile.
Drink with Me the wine, which forever shall not taste vile.
Obed dela Cruz



Still We Shall Stand

Towers and mega-structures may instantly fall
And priced commercial lands be left barren and dull.
But by having faith in God and a moving hand
We’ll rise and rebuild our world and still we shall stand.

Sacks of gold may be stolen from our trusted banks
And the earth’s most expensive diamonds become junks,
But still we shall enrich ourselves of the true riches.
Still we shall stand and have peace even in crisis.

Though we may stand in front a poisonous snake
And in great fear of what shall happen next we shake,
O with our strength let us do everything to live!
Still we shall stand and God’s protection we’ll receive.

No matter what we have today and tomorrow
Still we shall stand and into what’s good we shall go.
