To a Laborer

21 Oct

laborer
Oh Laborer of a desert city,
You toil day and night without rest,
Doing your best to build the city that never rests,
From the tallest to the smartest towers your hand exists,
But seldom people recognise that you even subsist

Short sleepless nights, to long working hours,
Weekends or weekdays are no different to you,
No worldly pleasure only dreams of a bright future,
Cold winter and hot summer are all that you enjoy,
Oh God does see your plight and shall give you rest

Some never survive to tell the tale,
Weakness, hopelessness kill their being,
Only some survive to see the face of their loved ones,
Oh what a joy to see their Papa, Husband, Son back,
Joy and Glory greater than a valiant soldier from war

With lot of dreams did they arrive at this land,
Many did realise their dreams to see their kids prosper,
Some admire this land compared to their own,
Many are desperate wanting to go back to their loved ones,
Oh Laborer, we honour you and pray for you

Essential Survival Guide

26 Sep

How much we need you Oh Lord,jesus-sheep
At every step and at every moment,
Not a second can we survive without you,
Just like air you are, you are our essential survival guide

A Mother may forger her kid,
But You love and care for us,
You shed your blood for us,
How can we forget such a dear and near friend

We exists because of your love,
We subsist because of your grace,
How then can we go against you,
Is thirty pieces of silver all your worth?

Fools as we are, we move to destroy ourselves,
With all our foolish plots and thoughts,
Save us from this foolishness Lord,
So that we may one day be with you in heaven forever

Give us the grace to stand firm till the end Lord,
Help us believe in your mighty power,
Fill us mere mortals with your mighty grace,
So that forgetting ourselves we may glorify you till death
