Speak so softly to my broken soul
No one else can make me whole
Gently, gently Spirit speak
Hold me closely kind and meek

Pain so deep no words express
Just a tear falls on my breast
Dripping from my eyes of blue
No idea Lord what to do

Such a time I have not seen
Maybe so, life’s been quite mean
Icy cold most people are
Except the few sweet shining stars

On this I set my heart of hope
That somewhere there’s a lighter note
Can I sing again, oh my soul
Can I speak of being whole

In Your arms is where I lie
I know you keep the tears I cry
Feeling deeply loving long
I wish again to sing Your song

Trusting You, Who never fails
Waiting for Your Spirit’s sails
Into the sunset I will gaze
Lifting up a quiet praise

Heaven is my dream of dreams
No matter those my hope demean
I know You’re real with all my heart
Lift me up my soul impart

Give me joy and wholeness too
I know You will I trust in You
Heal me Lord so deep within
Remove from me all lingering sin

Set me on a path that’s right
Help me Lord escape the night
Of all around the daggers fly
Lift me to your Presence high

TUG OF WAR

October 31, 2016

Oh Lover of my soul I cry
I need you closely standing by
Raging chaos can be found
Just by rising, feet on the ground

In my sleep the comforts reign
I can hear You call my name
Beckoning me to come to You
Such desire to see me through

Such confusion waits to pounce
On my soul to pull me out
Of the place abiding there
Where peace surrounds me, loving care

Light and darkness, always war
Try to hurt me to the core
But You teach me to return
To overcome, Your ways to learn

You hate my enemies oh Lord
You teach me how to pick up the sword
Sword of truth declaring loud
Tearing down deceptions shroud

Oh this life it is a dance
I’ve chosen You, my pure romance
Jealous is our enemy
Though he tries he can’t have me

Over and over and over again
I choose You Lord, my love I give
And You keep me in your palm
Rescuing me all the day long

LAST CALL – POETRY

October 27, 2016

Oh how this world
Has turned against God
They trample Him down
Underfoot they have trod

They mock His commandments
They spit in His face
Not only this country
But the whole human race

The hand that has made them
Has brought them so far
But they trade Him for gold things
For houses and cars

They hate His commandments
Set out to remove
Any rule of law
All justice they eschew

How long
Will His patient endurance remain?
How is it we don’t know
We can’t trample on His name?

Judgement and justice
Have not passed away
Consequences for sin
Are intact for this day

His grace won’t erase
For an unrepentant heart
Only those that are sorry
Turn from sin, from it depart

We can’t have it our own way
The Universe is His
We are His creation
We were born into this

He has made it so easy
His grace to receive
Paradise awaits us
For those who believe

Jesus paid the price
And a high price it was
To hang on a cross
For something He’s not done

Each has a choice
On which to be
He will separate the goats
From the sheep, all will see

Actions speak loudly
You cannot deceive
You may lie to the world
But with God it won’t be

Two thousand years
Is a long time for grace
Time to get ready
We will soon see His face

To the obedient such joy
To the rebellious such pain
The choice is your own
Which camp you’ll remain

One to damnation
There is eternal fire
The other to paradise
With a heavenly choir

Not playing games
So serious this is
He wants you to choose
To believe and be His

This may just be
Your last night on earth
Only God knows
Your death and your birth

Because it’s a choice
It’s all I can do
To sound this hard warning
And hope you will choose

Life without ending
In heavenly bliss
With great loving care
I hope you won’t miss

Can’t do it for you
It’s your soul to keep
But know that right now
For you we do weep

God truly loves you
Only believe
Reconnect with Him
Your soul He’ll receive

DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH

October 24, 2016

Below is a song I wrote a decade ago, but seems so important at this critical time in our history. Enjoy! ( song can be found at cdbaby.com/cd/chamblee2) praying for revival!!!

DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE FEAR OF GOD
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE FRIGHT
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE HOLINESS
THAT USED TO BE SO RIGHT

HAS JEHOVAH CHANGED THAT MUCH
IS HE A DIFFERENT GOD?
WAS HE A CHAMELEON?
OR A TEMPORARY FACADE?

DON’T MESS DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH
DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH (CHORUS)

WHERE IS THE RIGHT AND WRONG?
GOT SWALLOWED IN THE HOLE
POLITICAL CORRECTNESS
SEEMS TO BE THE WORLDLY MOLD
ARE WE NOT THE CHURCH OF GOD
AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST?
MADE TO REPRESENT OUR LORD
AND LIVE OUT LOUD HIS LIFE

DON’T MESS DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH
DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH (CHORUS)

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO US NOW?
MY HEART IS TORN IN TWO
SO CALLED GOSPEL PREACHED TODAY
IS FAR FROM BEING TRUE

JESUS THE MESSIAH KING
BRIGHT AND SHINING STAR
WORTHY OF OUR RESPECT
HOW DID WE FALL SO FAR?

DON’T MESS DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH
DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH (CHORUS)

BRING US LORD TO OUR KNEES
IN THIS OUR ONLY HOPE
REPENTANCE FROM OUR WORTHLESS DEEDS
RETURNING TO THE HEART

DID WE THINK THAT HE WON’T SEE?
THAT WE COULD HIDE OUR LIFE
DID WE THINK HE IS DECEIVED?
OUR DIETY OF LIGHT

DON’T MESS DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH
DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH (CHORUS)

Torpedo

April 2, 2009

I woke up this morning and what did I see

A crazy torpedo coming after me

It hit it’s mark and then I was down

How to get up – the answer not found

 

So off to the the closet 

Where I like to pray

Hoping for answers

To show me the way

 

Torpedos are real

In the spirit they may be

But the damage is tangible 

And inside make you bleed

 

So many sleeping 

To  the warfare around

So many damaged and hitting the ground

So many blind to the Words of the Lord

He said put on your armor and pick up your sword

 

For we wrestle not against flesh and against blood

It’s a spiritual battle and can’t be ignored

Help me keep that perspective and stay in the fight

Battling the darkness and fighting the night

 

And when one hits it’s mark

And down I may go

Send your sweet Spirit to heal and to show

How much I need you

The answers are Yours

Like David prayed

Lord teach me to war

 

I love you Lord Jesus

It’s a privilege to serve

And to be a good soldier

Is what you deserve

 

Sharpen my skills

Strengthen my love

And when I am weak

Send mercy from above
