The Troubadour

Verse 1

Verse 2

Upon the bustling highways now He moves His holy feet
To walk among the good and bad, His promise to complete

The union of the spirits, there, has caused Him to depart
Their garments bear the emblems of that written on the heart
There is Love
There is Love

Well the tidal waves are swelling and the ripened fruit hangs low
The King beckons to come and claim the gifts He will bestow

As it was in the beginning is now and til the end
The old score will become the new, we sing it once again
And there is Love
There is Love

Well then what's to be the reason now for coming to the feast?
Is it love that brings you here or just a promise of increase?
For if loving is the answer, then who's the giving for?
Will you live the thing on inner parts that you've never shown before?
Yes there is Love
There is Love

Hmmm mmm mmm mmm
mmm mmm

Oh, the marriage of their spirits, Friends, has caused Him to depart
Their garments bear the emblems of that written on the heart
There is Love
Ah, there's Love



The song is has ended. God bless you in your travels. May the tune of your heart pierce the veils of Heaven.

The Statement

To be free! To be free!
Can we mutually
Agree is the thing that we all want to be?
Let thy principles guide thee and mine will guide me.
If you care, though, to share, though, I'll jubilantly
Take a view
Yes, review to
Consider and see
How our dreams may combine in sublime unity!

Let's be free--you and me!
And prevent slavery!
To the man who demands all your conformity!
In white he is dressed
But by us he'll be blessed
As we so peacefully
Make our way to the Tree.

To be free! Is my plea,
It's to love and express, always genuinely.
I'll hold up a standard for all now to see...
The deep "part." (In the heart, written permanently):

To be free! It's the KEY!
And the new melody!
Please gather your psalteries and come,

My People

A statement is to be produced only by "my people."

"My people" bear fruit.

If you haven't born fruit, then you are not "my people."

So all your proposals, votes, meetings and discussions are just an exercise if you are not "my people." A game which will hold no weight in the end, except to teach you how hard and easy it is to find what you are seeking.

By bearing fruit you will learn how to agree, not the other way around.

Go labor in the vinyard. Go bear fruit. Go become "my people."

Bearing (witnessing of) fruit meet for being "my people," you can THEN make your statement(s).

The Treasurer

A tomb of gold and jewels you lust
Oh Shebna, dear, you flew too far
Our muse, a trusted steward once
But now you are a falling star

Hilkiah’s son, to you we look
Your shoulders bearing David’s throne
Are hung the treasures never known

The Trial

A lengthy trial of pain was born
But in the end He gave release
Forty years a heart did mourn
But in the end He left His peace

The Prayer of Enoch

Enoch's Prayer

"Wo is me! Wo!" She wept.
"The mother of evil, the mother of men!
When shall the filthiness be swept
  off my face, that I can rest and be clean once again?"

So Enoch continued to cry to the Lord,
"Will you not have compassion on her,
  and bless the children of Noah with thy word
  of mercy to make the hearts of men in righteousness stir?"

And the Lord would not withhold. He voiced the sound,
   He uttered an unalterable decree:
"A remnant of Noah's seed shall always be found
   among all nations, as long as the earth shall be.

"And blessed is he through whose seed comes
  the Rock of Heaven, the Messiah, the King.
For my Beloved, David and his kin beat the drums--
Praises of everlasting joy they will sing.

"Embedded within the chorus they muse
   is the key to the gate and path rising West.
Wherefore, whoso discovers their colorful hues
   shall climb to my presence and with their Mother have rest."

The Three Disciples

Please do not call us by the name of our father who crossed over to a promised land.
We honor him, it is true. But we do not follow the Spirit of his teachings by settling matters with the sword.
Our belief is that the worth of every soul is great, including the most wicked.
They need not perish to accomplish God's will, and we will serve them.

Even if they cast us into prison.
Even if they cast us into a furnace.
Even if they cast us into a den of wild beasts.

When our people took on the name of a man in opposition to their brothers, we stayed among them for a season, but their fate was sealed.
For only His name is the Rock and the Foundation of Stone.
We were given one name, and it is by that name only we respond.

And it is by that name we will answer again.
For we are among you, and you know us not.
But when we see your fruits of repentance, when you call on the Father in the name of Christ, we will establish a marvelous work.

For we are the disciples of Jesus, witnesses by our own eyes of Him, and know of a surety that His word is true. In nothing do we work, save it is in His name.

The Devil's Design

The devil's design is to make you an "-ite"
Of some tribe or faction, a company guy
And when opposition to it takes a bite
You put on your gloves and in like form reply

Some groups are of Moses and some are of Paul
Some of the nation and some of the Lord
You'll stand your ground firmly and give it your all
In mem'ry of wives you will fight with the sword

But if you refuse to engage in the game
And bless those who strike you with malice and harm
The mark on your head will display the Son's name
And loose will become all the chains on your arm

Your pathway ahead is both narrow and strait
Upon it there is only room for two feet
The Keeper alone now abides at the gate
Yet only the fools before God will He meet

The Governing Principle

Why look to write the thing that guides
While thrashing all around
Are Powers and their fearsome tides
Who howl a ruinous sound?

By nursing those who cry and yearn,
And walking with the "evil" 
The Lost will realize where to turn
When tossed in the upheaval.

The pen is mighty as the sword,
But stronger even still
Are actions which reveal His Word
And testify His will.

The Work

The Powers are waiting to reap down below,
To scorch and to shake, to flood and to blow.
And force men to tremble when seeing his hand.
That we may acknowledge the lord of this land.

Is he in the fire, the fever of hell?
Does god burn the sinful, where reprobates dwell?
No! I say, NO! The Lord is a balm!
To heal all the blisters. To sooth and to calm!

Is he in the earthquakes, which rattle and sway?
Does god reel the feet of the sinners this way?
It cannot be! For Christ has proclaimed
"How firm my foundation, so be not ashamed!"

Is he in the deluge, which pours in the South?
Does god drown the foul by the word of his mouth?
I say to you, NO! For my Lord supplies air
That we may sing praises, and offer our prayer.

Is he in the tempest, which screams harm's intent
To those who rebel and irately dissent?
His breath is not violent, but peacefully still!
And in that small voice we can fathom His will.

To those who have promised and stood from your seat--
I beg you, please listen to what I entreat.
A message divine was displayed in the sky--
A shroud of His glory beheld with your eye.

So stand on His doctrine of blessing your foe!
Immerse in His name and let charity flow!
Mightily pray for the ones who are lost!
Burn in the Spirit, the Lord's Pentecost!

And so a reprieve of the gallows is giv'n
To gentiles abroad from our Father in Heavn'.
You Angels must pause and your horses alight!
(The red and black stallions, the pale and the white).

A work will be done to convince all the wise.
(The learned and the prudent will see with their eyes!)
Now Lebanon's harvest begins in the field
And brings to fruition the prophesied yield!

Heaven Above and Earth Beneath

Hearken unto me, ye that follow after righteousness. Look unto the rock from whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit from whence ye are digged. Look unto Abraham, your father, and unto Sarah, she that bare you; for I called him alone, and blessed him.

For the Lord shall comfort Zion, he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving and the voice of melody.

Hearken unto me, my people; and give ear unto me, O my nation; for a law shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a light for the people. My righteousness is near; my salvation is gone forth, and mine arm shall judge the people. The isles shall wait upon me, and on mine arm shall they trust.

Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath; for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment; and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner. But my salvation shall be forever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.

Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart I have written my law, fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings. For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool. But my righteousness shall be forever, and my salvation from generation to generation.

Awake, awake! Put on strength, O arm of the Lord; awake as in the ancient days. Art thou not he that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon? The redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy and holiness shall be upon their heads; and they shall obtain gladness and joy; sorrow and mourning shall flee away.

I am he; yea, I am he that comforteth you. Behold, who art thou, that thou shouldst be afraid of man, who shall die, and of the son of man, who shall be made like unto grass? And forgettest the Lord thy maker, that hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth, and hast feared continually every day, because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? And where is the fury of the oppressor?

The captive exile hasteneth, that he may be loosed, and that he should not die in the pit, nor that his bread should fail. But I am the Lord thy God, whose waves roared; the Lord of Hosts is my name.

And I have put my words in thy mouth, and have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion: Behold, thou art my people.

Awake, awake, stand up, O Jerusalem, which hast drunk at the hand of the Lord the cup of his fury—thou hast drunken the dregs of the cup of trembling wrung out—And none to guide her among all the sons she hath brought forth; neither that taketh her by the hand, of all the sons she hath brought up.

These two sons are come unto thee: Judah and Ephraim, who shall be sorry for thee—thy desolation and destruction, and the famine and the sword—and by whom shall I comfort thee? Thy sons have fainted, save these two; they lie at the head of all the streets; as a wild bull in a net, they are full of the fury of the Lord, the rebuke of thy God.

Therefore hear now this, thou afflicted, and drunken, and not with wine: Thus saith thy Lord, the Lord and thy God pleadeth the cause of his people; behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling, the dregs of the cup of my fury; thou shalt no more drink it again. But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee; who have said to thy soul: Bow down, that we may go over—and thou hast laid thy body as the ground and as the street to them that went over.

Awake, awake, put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city; for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean. Shake thyself from the dust; arise, sit down, O Jerusalem; loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion.


Abide in the liberty wherewith you are made free. Entangle not yourselves in sin, but let your hands be clean until the Lord come, for not many days hence, and the earth shall tremble and reel to and fro as a drunken man, and the Sun shall hide his face and shall refuse to give light, and the Moon shall be bathed in blood, and the Stars shall become exceeding angry and shall cast themselves down as a fig that falls from off a fig tree.

And after  this testimony comes wrath and indignation upon the people, for after this testimony comes the testimony of earthquakes that shall cause groanings in the midst of her: and men shall fall upon the ground and shall not be able to stand, and also comes the testimony of the Manifestations of thunderings, and the Manifestations of lightnings, and the Manifestations of tempests, and the Manifestations of the waves of the sea heaving themselves beyond their bounds. And all things shall be in commotion, and surely men’s hearts shall fail them, for fear shall come upon all people.

The Two Sticks

"It's down the strait and narrow!"
"No, it's from the heart!"
"It's following the rule book!"
"It's love that we impart!"

The branches now divide us
Chilled ice and fire fanned.
But soon the sticks will settle
And join within His hand.
