When Angels …

For those who have gone to war.
For the soldier who can never forget,
nor ever tell,
of all that he saw.

Dry your eyes my dear friend
Let me take you by the hand
All creation getting ready
the Rock steady
as angels strike up the band

They’ll be rocked in the valleys
Down amid the shifting sand
All creation getting ready
the Rock steady
as angels strike up the band

Look around my dear friend
Fear and trouble in the land
Rocking every nation
The question begging
when angels strike up the band

Galaxies a-swirling
in a Universe expanding
A vortex sparkling
Consciousness a-coupling
All too beautiful
too glorious to understand

And Jesus …
He’s my main man
He’s the keeper of the keys
He sets my mind at ease
In all dimensions
he’s the 360 degrees
Love divine, by grand design
if you please ?
The answer for whatever disease
has kept you on your knees
Heaven and Earth at his command
The question ever there
for you to seize

From overture to ovation
all creation getting ready
the Rock steady
as angels strike up the band

Look around my dear friend.
Jubilation in the land
Uplifted from shifting sand
The mountain tops
for making a stand
All creation clapping hands
Little children, woman, man
all part and parcel
of the Master’s plan
From stardust
an eternity so grand

Saints getting ready
the Rock steady ,
as angels strike up the band .

  1. Amazing artwork and words. I was a soldier for 15 years and I knew the combat soldiers. The oldtimers who drink the memories away. My father served in the Korean war and Vietnam. He drank himself to death. I tried and I was saved. A powerful and worthwhile work my friend.
