"I was an Angel"
By: Dalyn K. Merrill
Augest 2002

When the Children of Israel
were led to the Red Sea
I was not among the Refugees
who fled from Pharaoh.
But I helped the children run
through the parted waters,
to hurry them along,
and keep them free.

I was an Angel then,
and witnessed many miracles.
But, I've forgotten them
when I came to Earth.
The Spirit testifies
when I kneel to pray;
I still have work to do
and truths to proclaim.

Two thousand years ago
in a field outside of Bethlahem
shepards heard the skies ring
with the voices of angels.
I was not among the sheep
in a field outside of Bethlahem.
But, my voice rang from the skies
when I gloried in my God!

I was an Angel then,
and witnessed many miracles.
But, I've forgotten them
when I came to Earth.
The Spirit testifies
when I kneel to pray;
I still have work to do
and truths to proclaim.

I'll proclaim His Word.
I will be His Voice.
Until he returns to Earth
it's up to me
to make the choice
to follow Him.
(follow. follow Him. follow Him!)

I live and work each day
struggling with choices.
Trying to obay the Prophets' words.
When Jesus comes again
I'll be among his Witnesses.
I don't remember Him,
but he knows me!

I was His angel when
I witnessed many miracles.
But, I've forgotten them
when I came to Earth.
The Spirit testifies
when I kneel to pray;
I still have work to do
and truths to proclaim.

I'll proclaim His Word.
I will be His Voice.
Until he returns to Earth
it's up to me
to make the choice
to follow Him.
(follow. follow Him. follow Him!)

I was His angel when
I witnessed many miracles.
But, I've forgotten them
when I came to Earth.
The Spirit testifies
when I kneel to pray;
I still have work to do
and truths to proclaim...





"The Lost Sheep"
By: Dalyn K. Merrill
Augest 2002

The sun rose on a beautiful day.
I ran out into a field of grass and clover.
I played amongst the flowers
and passed away the hours.
But, when night came
I looked around and found
I'd wandered... too far.

Where are the ninety and nine?
Did they notice that I was missing?
I should not have wandered off.
and now I've found I'm lost.
But, couldn't they have come to find me?

The ninety-nine were buisy in the medow.
They worked all day to do the things they should.
They could not believe their eyes
when the Shepard passed them by
and RAN into the night after ONE
who had wandered... too far.

Where are the ninety and nine?
Did they notice that I was missing?
I should not have wandered off.
and now I've found I'm lost.
But, couldn't they have come to find me?

The Shepard came near.
And, calling my name, calmed my fears.
I rushed to His side,
fell at his feet, and cried,
and promised Him that I would never wander... too far.

Are you lost, or of ninety-nine?
Did you know that the Shepard knows your name?
He holds you in his embrace,
wipes the tears from your face,
and saves all those
who have wandered too far...

Because that's what He does.
My Brother.
My King.
My Savior.




"Testimony"
By: Dalyn K. Merrill
September 2002

Why am I standing here
with no one around me?
Its quiet here,
and kind of lonely.
The darkness scares me,
and I'm so afraid.
The stars dissapear.
It starts to rain.
How did I get here?
I'm so confused.
What did I do now?

It wasn't always like this.
I remember the sun.
I remember the moonlight
when the night's begun.
And I remeber the fire
that burned within my heart.
I remember the light before the dark.

And I want to feel the fire again.
And I want to be safe again.
And I want to find my way
back into the light.

I did this.
I'm to blame.
It was a mistake.
But, all the same
I wish that I
could turn back time.

It wasn't always like this.
I remember the sun.
I remember the moonlight
when the night's begun.
And I remeber the fire
that burned within my heart.
I remember the light before the dark.

And I want to feel the fire again.
And I want to be safe again.
And I want to find my way
back into the light.

Don't give up on me.
I still can change.
I know its up to me
to build the flame.

It wasn't always like this.
I remember the sun.
I remember the moonlight
when the night's begun.
And I remeber the fire
that burned within my heart.
I remember the light before the dark.

And I want to feel the fire again.
And I want to be safe again.
And I want to find my way
back into the light.

And I can almost feel the flame.




"You Are Mine"
~ A Lullaby ~
By: Dalyn K. Merrill
3 November 2002
from Isaiah 43:1-4

I hear your cries.
I hear your prayers.
When you walk through the fire
I am there.
I hold you close
when you fear.
When you cry I wipe away your tears.

When the fires burn, I知 there.
When the waters flood, I知 there.
When the winds blow
I知 there by your side.
I can call you by name
祖ause you are mine.

Don稚 be afraid.
I give you peace.
I will guide you through the night,
and guard your sleep.
I値l lift you up.
And hold your hand.
I will fight off the wolves
to save my lamb!

When the fires burn, I知 there.
When the waters flood, I知 there.
When the winds blow
I知 there by your side.
I can call you by name
舛ause you are mine.

You are mine.

When the fires burn, I知 there.
When the waters flood, I知 there.
When the winds blow
I知 there by your side.
I can call you by name
祖ause you are mine.

You will fall.
I値l wash your hands.
and carry you to where life demands.
Sleep. Be strong.
You will wake in my arms
when night is gone.

When the fires burn, I知 there.
When the waters flood, I知 there.
When the winds blow
I知 there by your side.
I can call you by name
祖ause you are mine.

You are mine.

When the fires burn, I知 there.
When the waters flood, I知 there.
When the winds blow
I知 there by your side.
I can call you by name
祖ause you are mine.

You are mine.
You are mine.

My hands aren't as warm
without your hands in it.
and there's no point to curl my hair
without your fingers sliding through it.
and I still have that twinkle in my eye
but you're not here to see.
I'm just not the same
without you here with me.

And at night I look at the stars and pray
we'll be together again someday.
And I look for a sign my prayer's been heard.
And I lie awake all alone
in a cold bed, since you left home.
I'm falling apart without you here
to hold me up and calm my fears.
And I'm missing you a little more each day...

~ a Duet ~

(girl)

When I look into the mirror,
when I walk out in the world,
when I reach to help my neighbor,
I see Him.
When I feel of His forgiveness,
when I see his mighty works,
when I'm lost and see just darkness,
I feel His love in my heart.

And I know that I can testify
of all he's done for me.
And I know that He wants you to have
everything he's shared with me.
And I know that he'll prepare a way
for you to hear what I must say.
But, until you're ready to rhea it,
until you feel His Spirit,
I'll be standing by
to help you on your way!

(guy)

I feel as if I am a prisoner.
Of what - I cannot tell.
I just know I'm missing something.
But, I can't escape my world.

And I've heard the tales of mighty men
who have changed the course of time.
There is so much good that I would do
if that power were mine.
And I know that I will, someday,
that special thing to light my way.
To that place where I should be
to learn, to know, and see.
Until then, I will be searching to find my way.

(duet)

Would you pass on by
someone fighting for their life?
Would you walk away
from someone drowning day by day
into despair. Because they've lost their way
when you could save them
with the words and deeds you've prayed to use?
Look around and you will see
you're not alone. You are the ones I've sent
to help them find their way...

"Mary"
By: Ken Davis


Mary, did you know your son would come,
and the He would be the Holy One?
Mary, did you know your son would come?
He's a gift from heaven; the Begotten Son.

and he must have been an angel
when you held Him in your arms.
And you probably saw heaven
when you looked in His eyes.
And his star - it shined bright.
The wise me - they came.
And they probably saw heaven
when they looked in His eyes.

Mary, did you know your son would come,
and that He would teach the millions?
Mary, did you know your son would come?
And He healed all the people;
the broken ones.

And a lepper was made whole.
And a blind man could see.
And the lame could walk.
And the deaf could hear.
Then He calmed a sea storm.
And the dead he raised.
And he walked on water.
And his name was praised.

Mary, did you know your son would come,
and that He would bleed for everyone?
Mary, did you know your son would come,
and He gives his life freely because of his love?

and the crowds - they mocked Him.
With thorns - they crowned Him.
and He carried a cross up a hill.
Then the soldiers - they nailed Him.
With a spear - they peirced Him...

Mary, you cried.
Tears filled your eyes.

Mary, did you know your son would come
and that He would be the Holy One?




"The Way"
By: Dalyn K. Merrill
January 2003

When I wander out in the world
many forces are pulling me.
Their voices are calling to follow them.
Whom do I believe?

There are choices to make,
and habits to break.
The kingdom of God is comming.
The time is now
to be an example of how
to live in these last days.

When I fall down and hope is lost
to make my life okay again,
I get so confused of which path to choose.
How do I repent?

Jesus said, "come, follow me."
ask yourselves, were you listening?
The prophets call for all to believe.
Your faith is needed now.

Yea, Lord, do you love me?
Promise you won't let me fall.
I'll keep thy word, and I'll feed thy sheep.
Promise to save us all.

I am struggling to meet the deadlines
the world has cast for me.
I am trying to find friends who've lost their way,
and bring them back with me!

When the comfortor lends you strength
to help you get through the day.
Don't be afraid to defend the truth.
Help is on the way.
All you've got to do is pray.
Heavenly Father will guide the way
at the end of the day.




"You're Gone"
By: Dalyn K. Merrill
Sunday 24 Augest 2003 9:03am

When I look in your eyes
When I see you've been cryin'
If I catch a glymps of your soul
I see you
When you wander about; lost
When you think no one is watchin' out for you
Like no one cares if you dissapear
I know you're there, and I care!

And I want to give you everything
that I have and learned and discovered
And I want to help you find your way
But then you're gone
And I've lost you
Now you've gone
And I can't help you
And now you're gone
*hmms*

A thousand years could pass away
and I still would feel a failure
not having helped you on your way
what would you say
when next I see you?

Will you accuse me of not believing
in the very things I'm teaching
thinkin' you'll never want to know
what I know
what I try to show
sacred things I know
coulda' helped you to grow
*hmms*

And I want to give you everything
that I have and learned and discovered
And I want to help you find your way
But then you're gone
And I've lost you
Now you've gone
And I can't help you
And now you're gone
*hmms*

Will you accuse me of not believing
in the very things I'm teaching
thinkin' you'll never want to know
what I know
what I try to show
sacred things I know
coulda' helped you to grow
*hmms*

You've got to help them
find their way
You've got to be strong
Please someone teach them
they want to stay
and not be lost...
*hmms*
