Mayday

Mayday
(C) 2014 Elviera “Wisdomlily” Schreüder

They call out for help
Mayday
Yet the futile buzz continues
Mayday
Their deep cries unheard as it
blends into shallow chatter
Mayday

We are overtaken by comfort
Mayday
Deafened by empty sounds
Mayday
Poisoned empathy
Mayday

God open our ears
Mayday
We cry out to You
Mayday
You are El Roi, the God that hears
Mayday

Dit maak seer

Kopiereg 2014 (C) Elviera “Wisdomlily” Schreuder

Dis so maklik om ‘n kopseer te dokter maar ‘n hart wat pyn sit daar diep binne in jou
Daar binne in die diepste kamer van jou siel
Alles is so seer dat jy nie weet waar om te vat of te los nie
Die pyn boor deur jou hele wese
Warm druppels droog jou vel uit en spoel jou gesigpoeier af
Hoop is nie meer iets wat verligting bring nie
Dit maak seer

In the fire

In the fire
(C) 2014 Elviera “Wisdomlily” Schreüder

Your love is perfect
It fills more than my heart
I don’t see You when I’m in the fire
But You are right there at work
There where the rest of the world can See Your faithfulness

All I see are these flames
Even in the fire I cannot doubt Your love
On their faces I see You’re here with me
These flames are mere ribbons blown in the wind
They cannot harm me
Even the fire bows before You
Oh glorious King
Your love is stronger than death!

Emptiness

Emptiness

(C) 2013 Elviera “Wisdomlily” Schreüder

Rip open my heart and my chest!
The hunger in me is no longer at rest!
I come before You to be purged!
Swish! I shake this bag until empty!
On my knees I surrender to You!
My tears and pain I detain…
A fierce cry awaits to be released!
Oh God I cannot do this anymore!
I’m falling apart…
El Roi, do You see my agony and the famine in me?
I want to dance before You!
Each motion smothered by my aching heart!
Present Yourself and slay this emptiness.
