Gemeenskap van die heiliges


Haan, staan jy en koning kraai
wyl jy die kerk met mis besaai,
vanaf jou kateder van kritiek,
wyl jy liefde slegs mimiek.

Verteenwoordig jy jou Vader
as jy in haat tot ander nader
en hul nie 'n kans wil gun
om te doen wat hul bemin?

Is jy die een wat God se naam
iets maak waarvoor die mens hom skaam,
sodat hy ander velde gaan besoek,
wyl jy by jou getroue groepie kloek?

Weet jy dan nie wat liefde is,
met sy wortel van vergifnis,
wat jou reg gee om ander te verskoon
om ook die dienste by te woon?

Waarom leen jy dan jou ore uit
aan hulle wat haat en leuens verspreid
in kerkgeledere uitbasuin
met min ontsag vir andere se pyn?

Staan vol jou plek en wees 'n man
wat ander bemagtig sodat hulle kan
doen waarvoor hulle geroep word,
anders skiet die kerk tekort.

Gee jy die rigting en leiding
om eenheid te maak van skeiding,
en wees paraat en op jou plek
wanneer ander hulle monde rek.

Laat jou woorde liefde wees,
want so word alle seer genees,
ook die wat in kwaadpraat begin
en nooit oor die impak daarvan besin.

As ons mekaar nie kan akkomodeer
in die plek waar ons ons God vereer,
hoe kan ons dan die wêreld raak?
Dan het ons God mos reeds versaak!?

Dus, rig op jou hart en buig jou knie
want hierdie gaan nie oor jou eer nie.
Jy sal ander moet ondersteun
en hom jou skouer gee om teen te leun.

Thorns for a crown


When darkness surrounded
and threatened to envelop you,
My love to you abounded
with a heartache that I felt too.
You searched for me in anguish,
shouting at my inability to hear,
with your burden not relinquished,
never knowing I was near.
You clung tightly to your trouble,
attempting to soften its impact,
but it only seemed to double,
with your faltering in faith and fact.
It is time to loosen and let go
those things that dragged you down
These are not seeds by your life sown
Come, swap your thorns for a crown.

Fokus


Vandag is al my woorde op
maar dit kry nie my kop gestop
Eintlik probeer ek net vermy
die saak wat my wil onderkry.
So, laat my dan maar nonsens praat
en hoop dit hou my uit die kwaad,
want hierdie ewige tobbery
lyk of dit nooit gaan einde kry.
Vanoggend hoor ek stories wat my kwel
en my kop wil hom hieroor laat ontstel.
Tog dra die goeie meer gewig
as die stories wat my so ontstig.
Dus, skuif ek my fokus met bedag
om die goeie van nader te betrag,
en vermy ek die slegte opsetlik
voor dit my in sy stank verstik.

Blessing


Blessing is the name you wear,
and it’s one chosen with care,
for you are a sister and a friend,
whose love endures until the end.
Blessings are what you bestow
on all of whom you get to know.
Blessings are your plain adornment,
of which you have a rich assortment.
Blessing, with your painful past,
unlike the mould from which you’re cast,
how did you survive the pain
without a lifelong tear or stain?
Blessing, sister, child of God,
you are your Father’s live Ephod,
a sign by which all of man can see
that God triumphs in you and me.

Wrongful Incarceration


My human rights were stripped from me
and with it went my dignity.
You took more than I had to give,
left me with just my breath to live.

I did not step across your line,
I lived in peace and thought it fine,
but you flexed muscles in my face,
because I was a different race.

You kept me in isolation,
brought your scheme to full gestation;
my eyes could none familiar see,
the sounds you made were strange to me.

I wondered if you knew my name,
the one that you had brought to shame,
or did you simply blink your eye
when in my fear you saw me cry?

The thing you failed to understand,
is that I’m safe e’en in your hand;
the hands and eyes that hold me dear
belong to One Who knows no fear.

You may not know my Father Lord,
may think of Him as made-up thought,
but He is truer than your bars,
His hands have bled with countless scars.

Those hands that held Him to a cross
does not count human life as loss.
He cares for you as much as me
and counts these bars trivially.

They locked my brother Peter up,
our Father saw his bitter cup,
and needing him to speak freely,
He gave him back his liberty.

Paul too, can testify to this:
that life may not always be bliss,
but when the Spirit lives in me,
I’ll go where He needs me to be.

A modern fairy tale


Jane Austen could not have written a more perverse injustice,
than the story of a love-struck man, thwarted by female prejudice.
Such was the tale of the prince and his dame as they were introduced.
Her opinionated airs gave him never a gap, even though he was enthused.
But the prince proved persistent, despite her abuse
and ere long her excuses became a mere ruse,
which he easily saw through and gallantly thwarted,
so that in no time at all, she had them all but aborted.
The prince and his dame,
with love overcame,
were soon bathed in blissful laughter
and the end of this tale,
as many grown stale,
was that they lived happily ever after.

Omgee-mens


Vandag verlang ek na jou praat,
om sommer net te sit en luister.
Of jy nou kennis deel, of raad,
ek hoor jou mensehart se fluister
as jy seerkry dinge met my deel
en jou woorde saggies pyn wegstreel.

Jou woorde spreek van intellek
as jy oor die dag se dinge praat;
in jou omgee is daar nie gebrek,
en dit maak van elke een jou maat,
wanneer jy hul in woord omring
uit isolasie-vervreemding.

Ek sien hoe jy kan kontak maak,
wanneer jy vlugtig by hul stop,
om uit te vra na elke saak,
en sien jou omgee rig hul op.
Jou woorde maak 'n groot verskil
aan die uitvoering van God’s wil.
