That’s The Truth!

THAT’S THE TRUTH!

by Paul Bishop – May 28, 1998

(a loose variation on the tune of “All That Jazz” from the musical “Chicago”)

I’m glad that Christianity
Is not a society
Where it’s “eye for eye”
And “tooth for tooth”
Because for all my misadventures
I venture I’d have dentures
And be blind
And that’s the truth! (more…)

Unsinkable

UNSINKABLE

by Paul Bishop, May 16, 1998

(adapted from “My Heart Will Go On”, the love theme from “Titanic”, by Celine Dion)

Every night in my prayers
I reach for Your presence
There I find the strength to go on
Through my day of failing
And Satan’s assailings
In Your hands, my heart must belong (more…)

THY WILL BE DONE

by Paul Bishop – April 13, 1998

“Oh Father, will You rescue Me?

The Voice Of Music

THE VOICE OF MUSIC

by Paul Bishop – March 24, 1998

Though I may not play perfection
When my fingers press these valves
I know the music for my soul will be
A sonorous, healing salve
For in the music when I play
I hear all the Composer wants to say

God speaks through the music
To my quiet heart that beats
To the rhythm of emotion, finding
Where the Lord my soul will meet
And within the inspired harmonies
My Saviour comes and speaks to me

Tough Love

TOUGH LOVE

by Paul Bishop – March 21, 1998

Sometimes I’m stubborn
And you push me
Until in my anger
I fall flat
You only do this
Because you love me
Not out of hate

Shadows On Your Tongue

SHADOWS ON YOUR TONGUE

by Paul Bishop – February 19, 1998

When you ask me how I’m doing
My truth is deep inside
But do you really want to know
Or is this silence justified?

Tell me if you are truly concerned
As this question between us in hung
Will you hear through the darkness
Of those shadows on your tongue? (more…)

Just Not The Same

JUST NOT THE SAME

by Paul Bishop – February 7, 1998

What’s behind your eyes?
It never quite reaches your face
I can tell by your stance
Not to invade your stance

Pushing me away?
No.  Neither pulling me in
Keep me that safe distance
Away from hurt within

I watched you Sunday
From where I sat in my pew
I do not understand
What has changed inside you

You are just not the same
The flame within you now dies
But I cannot see
The truth behind your eyes
