Called aside from life's mad race;
Called to move just at God's pace;
Called to rest within His hands, T
rusting in His  faithful plans.
Called to "be" and not to "do,"
Yet to know God still loves you;
To relax - He'll take the strain;
Through this time He will sustain. 
When assailed by doubt and fear
God has said He's always near.
He supplies strength day by  day
Like the manna on the way.
As your strength begins to grow,
May you God's own wisdom know;
Feel the comfort of His care -
Love supporting, love to share. 
May Christ make you fully whole,
Touching body, spirit, soul.
May you know His power within -
Christ, Who conquered death and sin
May you know we love you, too,
By our prayers and what we  do;
One great fellowship of love,
Fired, inspired by God above. 

Ann S Clifton 



Let each one make music to the Lord above;
Joyful, glorious music flowing from God's love.
Where there's pain and sadness let this music flow;
In the streets of commerce may they His voice know.

Let each one make music – God's great word declare –
Music of deliverance, the King's way prepare.
Let the earth make music – all things the Lord has made
In glorious jubilation, a song that will not fade.

Let all make music to Him, their voices lift as one;
All tribes and tongues and nations united in the Son.
Let music reach the heavens, proclaiming Jesus' worth
'Til He returns in glory, brings a new heaven and earth.


You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning;
You, O Lord, turn darkness to light.
You, O Lord, give grace for the moment.
You, O Lord, give power for the fight.

You, O Lord, break down the barriers;
You, O Lord, obstacles all remove.
You, O Lord, give victory in battle;
You, O Lord, plan for me in love.

You, O Lord, break into my darkness;
You, O Lord, sustain my light each day.
You, O Lord, give healing and refreshment.
You, O Lord, lead in Your perfect way.


God of breakthroughs, re-creation;
God, Who longs to bring real change;
God, Who shines into our darkness;
God, Who lives can rearrange.

Light is breaking forth like sunrise,
Piercing all the gloom of night –
Brilliant, dazzling, gleams from heaven
Where the Saviour is its light.

Glory breaks through, rising on us;
Rising IN us, makes us shine;
Drawing others to the dawning
As they see God's holy sign.

Light and glory join together
As to Christ we bow the knee,
Giving up the things that bind us,
And His power sets us free.

God's Shekinah glory in us;
God's revival in our hearts;
Full assurance of acceptance,
Perfect cleansing He'll impart.

A season which God has planned for our own birth;
A season for proving He makes us of worth;
A season He's planned when to Him He will call
Us to share in the glory with our All in all.

A season for laying aside all the past;
A time for forgetting those memories that last;
A season for gathering the new things God gives;
A time for expressing that God in us lives.

A season for healing in body and soul;
A season for Jesus to come and make whole;
A time to accept and rely on His strength;
A time to be called to His kingdom at length.

A season to tear down the barriers we've made;
A season to build up for Him, unafraid;
A season for weeping with others who cry;
A season for laughing – inspired from on high.

A time to be silent – a time to speak out;
A season to whisper – a season to shout;
A time to make war and a time to make peace;
A season to bind things; a time to release.

Yet nothing is meaningless in God's control.
In all He is with us – our life and our goal.
And so we press onwards through darkness and pain
Until God's high calling at last we attain.

Ann S Clifton – 21st April 2012

My Jesus I love Thee (Affection)

I don't think I've put them up on my website yet.  Clicking 'Center' put all of the poem in one paragraph!


These are lovely, keep them coming!  We enjoy having a resident poet!


Oh, how beautiful your poem is!
I would love to pass it on to someone who has lost her voice this past six weeks. Her whole life was music and I know she is discouraged. I will give you the credit, for sure!
