Tired Of School?

I’m absolutely, definitely, tired of school today
I want to hear my teacher say a holiday’s on its way
I made a mess of lessons because I hadn’t been prepared.
I didn’t do my homework in case I seemed a ‘nerd’.

It’s not that I want to appear stupid all my life
Though that is what will happen if I’m a slacker and a pike
I want to be much smarter than that fellow on TV
I’m full of useless information if you ask me.

So now I have decided I will study very hard
And do all my homework, though I’ll still play in the yard.
One day you’ll see my name on a board upon a door
And you’ll know you’ve found someone who really knows it all.

Your Second Coming.

I lie in my bed and gaze up at the sky
I imagine I see Your dear Face.
I’m laying here waiting for Your second coming
How long do I have to wait?

You said to be ready, and so I am here
And watching for You from the skies
But I’m getting sleepy because I am tired
And I might just close my eyes.

So wake me dear Father if You should return
While I am fast asleep
Because in my heart I am ready and waiting
As Your commandments I’m trying to keep.

You are stroking my face with a soft little breeze
The clouds pass the moon, drifting by
When the sun wakes us up on this side of the world
The other half waves it goodbye.

So I lie on my bed and gaze up at You, Lord
I am ready, so come, get me now
I’m laying here waiting for Your second coming
I’m determined to see You, somehow.

Speak To Me.

Speak to me Lord, I want to speak about You
Sing to me Lord, as we walk through the land
Lead me Lord, so that I can follow
Guide me Lord, I want to hold Your hand.

Give me hope to look forward to my future
Extend to me Your Joy to fill my heart anew
Offer me Your mercy when I disappoint You
And Your power to stop disappointing You.

I want to show my gratitude for all You do for me
Accept my adoration for all Your earthly pain
I want to return to You the love You showered on me
So, Holy Spirit pour on me Your cleansing rain.
