My Chains Are Gone
My chief desire in all my writings, is to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ and make Him beautiful and glorious in the eyes of people; and to promote the increase of repentance, faith, and holiness upon earth - J. C. Ryle (1816-1900)

A Reason For Living

Our life’s agony – a lonely life,
a rebel heart or unwanted strife…
is trouble and sorrow great to bear,
yet, there is no burden we can’t share
with Jesus

Angels grieve to see our errant way,
still, their gentle hands before us lay:
their task ahead (their reward and gain),
to lift our feet above this life’s pain
for Jesus

Beyond our sorrow, beyond our night,
we watch close a brother’s anguished flight:
we’ve known that pain! Yes, we’ve known such need;
now truly aware we turn to plead
with Jesus

Our prayers are heard! Our wounds are healing!
Light of step, our hearts believing,
we behold the task before us plain:
let’s help lift others above their pain
for Jesus
