“We see through a glass darkly”
Not knowing the full meaning of all things
Seeing the truth but partly
Till we seek for what the Spirit brings
This, those secular would we forget
By applying the Spirit to reason
But what is sacred, we respect
And would consider that as treason 

1Cor 13:12
1Nephi 11:17

And the Lord provided
Where I previously failed

The wrath of God pours
When the cup of sin is full
Silencing horrors
To then feel the conscience pull
The wicked drink it down
To its very dregs
It is poured but in full strength
Drunk in sin, to then vomit
 to fall and rise no more
 Still plagues flow in torrents
Burning with hail and sulfur

Revelation 14:10 he also will drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out

Ezekiel 38:22I will execute judgment upon him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him.

Isaiah 51:17Awake, awake! Rise up, O Jerusalem, you who have drunk from the hand of the LORD the cup of his wrath, you who have drained to its dregs the goblet that makes men stagger

Be honest with yourself
When you know you must repent
Ask the Lord for His help
And do not circumvent
Like a child on a bear hunt
You must go through and not around
All your weakness and confront
How you got where you’re now found


  1. Find a way around (an obstacle).
  2. Overcome (a difficulty), typically in a clever and surreptitious way.
deceive – cheat

I know in my heart
That better days lie ahead
If we’ve qualities to trust
And put our pride to bed
America it’s time
To re awake what’s in your heart
And for that, unite
To never ever again depart
The government is us!
And we must self-govern
If we’ve qualities to trust
We’ll help others in turn
Laws, laws, and more laws
There will never be an end
If everyone puts out their paws
For magical money to descend
With hidden taxes we print
Money that does not exist
What we have won’t make a dent…
To do it again,we must resist
Our budgets now lay broken
As, too, our trust in politics
Blah, blah, blah is spoken
We are sick of schemes and tricks
And so here we say-
To delay is but death
Mightily, let’s pray
And, too, let’s be our best

That sudden stroke of genius
That light you felt turn on
Is a blessing to witness
Is a thing to build upon
Please use it for good
To bless the human race
Filled with brotherhood,
For God, let it leave a trace

Men value their women
When they help them out
Love’s fabric is woven
With service about

Kindness is the key
That unlocks the heart
Be one found loving
From within impart
