Addenda to 'Who is this man'

Who is this Man

Addenda (in blue) to an anthem by Mary Kay Beall entitled Who is this Man? sung in my home church choir a few years ago.

Who is this man upon a cross
By love's decree, brought low?
They say He came to save the world
Because God loved us so
The King of Kings
And Lord of Lords
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
Can it be true
He died for me
And yes, would die again

Who is this man upon the cross?
He is a friend to me
And though I oft Him disappoint
His love has set me free
The King of Kings
And Lord of Lords
Eternally He'll reign
And yes it's true
He died for me,
But will return again

Flying Dragons

Have you ever seen a dragon soaring swiftly through the sky?
Or seen one leap with trunks of legs to rise up, oh so high?
You e'er seen one prepare to land?  that sight would terrify,
Don't worry if you haven't, 'cause for certain, nor have I.

I haven't seen that 'scaly green' the fly space occupy,
Nor seen the fiery puffing beast, earths gravity, defy,
And while no ogreish brute exists, I cannot tell a lie,
While I've not seen flying dragons, I've seen a 'dragonfly'.

Let HIM.

What Satan planned as evil,
My Lord has turned to gain,
Each life committed to HIM
Will never be in vain.

Each gift HE has bestowed upon
His children, here on earth,
Can change the hearts of sadness,
To merriment and mirth.

HE'll use your many talents
If you, to HIM resign,
Then work them all together
In HIS wondrous design.

Accomplishments, unthinkable,
Within the worldly realm,
Become the most believable,
When God is at the helm.

So yield to HIM your talents,
Let HIM take full control
Then watch HIM take the broken
And make them fully whole.
