I Worship You, Pastor

With a glance of your eyes could plunder all the wealth of songs struck from poets’ harps My pastor! But for their praises you have no ear Therefore I come to praise you You could humble at your feet the proudest heads in the world. But it is your loved ones, Unknown to fame, Whom you choose to worship, Therefore I worship you. The perfection of your arms would add glory to kingly splendor with their touch. But you use them to sweep away the dust, And to make clean our humble soul, Therefore I am filled with awe

My Appreciation Song

This song of mine will wind its music around you, My Pastor, Like the fond arms of love This appreciation song of mine will touch Your forehead like a kiss of blessing. When you are alone It will sit by your side And whisper in your ear, When you are in the crowd It will fence you about with aloofness My appreciation song will be like A pair of wings to your dreams, It will transport your heart to the verge of the unknown. It will be like the faithful star overhead When dark night is over your road. My Appreciation song will sit in the pails of your eyes, And will carry your sight into the heart of things.
