~ Wild Seas ~ Joan Clifton Costner



~ Wild Seas ~
The waters of the Lord are deep
And, when the gales begin,
I snuggle deeper, deeper,
Until I’m lost in Him.
For, the turbulence that travels,
Across the surface wild,
Cannot reach deep and trouble
His, fully, trusting child.

Were I on top, my eyes would hold
The pictures of despair;
Just like Peter’s wonder at
The violence with care.
But, when you’re resting deeper down,
It doesn’t bother so ~
And you’ll find wisdom widens as you go!

So, draw me deeper, deeper, Lord.
Keep my eyes fixed on You
‘Til, when the sudden wind appears,
I’ll know just what to do!
Draw me, by Jesus' precious love,
To deeper, richer, life with You.
Bring strength and victory that day,
Because You promised to.

A Secret Place ~ Joan Clifton Costner




A Secret Place

A Secret Place: a hallowed chamber,

Apart from worldly snares;

A place where I may feel my Lord
And understand He cares .
A place where all anxiety flees,

Far away and fast;

Where love can flow so pure and free,
And all my burdens pass ...
And there, where morning light first falls

And warms the inner heart;

Where evening light still lingers ~
Setting secret things apart.

I learn, from out the heart of God,
Cherished deeds that He holds dear.
I take the time and listen,
For, I love to feel Him near.
I’m taught the secrets of His heart.

I count the hours gold

And thank Him for His precious love,
That’s mine to have and hold!
