For Your Grace (Annette Redmond Walters-Lafayette, LA)


"For Your Grace"

I chose not to lead the way
or be the focus of intent
yet here I reside, all on display
for all to see as I repent

I cannot be a perfect spirit
as long as I am bound in sin
I hence feel I’m deemed unfit
for a fight I can’t, alone, win

I pray with passion to see
a promising path of grace
where my people can live free
and our holy father, embrace

Give me strength not to fall
on grievous acts against you
help me hear my lord’s next call
and know your words, alone, are true

I follow where you lead my heart
I give myself to absorb your love
and from evil, set myself apart
I patiently await your guidance from above

Moving Forward (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Step by step, I step     I hear the angels sing    Hope, today, they bring  Flying up with pep  I become Heaven's rep    Riding along God's wing
Moving forward can be hard     Struggling through today      Living life is not all play The fortune teller draws a card It warns that Fate has no guard     Never let pain get in your way
Flying high with my life      I am moving, so I'm living     Heart and heart, I keep giving I will one day meet my afterlife  Everyone's past contains strife       Let my future be thanksgiving
When the steps run out      I will just fly and fly and fly      I leave the past with a goodbye Up on God's wing, I won't pout  Going to heaven, I do not doubt     In hell, I was just a passerby 
Moving forward, strength will build     Letting go is the hardest part     Vitality comes from being smart Trust in those that are strong-willed Our honest actions will be fulfilled      I step, I sing to you, I fly, I depart
