Better Is

An Original Work / October 5, 2018
Based in part off Proverbs 27

Better is Love’s chastisement
From a friend,
Than to have your sins coddled
To no end.

Wisdom is seeing danger –
Flees from sin,
Trusting in your Redeemer,
Pure within.

Jesus is your salvation –
Freed from sin –
Giving you life eternal,
Without end.

Trusting in His provisions,
Peace within,
Simply by giving your life
All to Him.

Living your life for Jesus
Ev’ry day,
Tell of His mighty power,
Lives to save.

Listening to Him speaking
To your heart,
Tell of His grace which gave you
A new start.

  1. “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.” James 3:17

    I love how your song echoes scripture!

    • Brittania, all glory to God! The songs all come from him, and most all of them (or all of them) echo scripture or are taken directly from scripture. Amen to the scripture you quoted! Thank you!

    • This is the only song I had professionally recorded. I would never have done that except for this music producer contacted me via LinkedIn and encouraged me to do that. I told him “No” flat out because I know my voice is old, and it is declining each year, too, but then he asked me if I had prayed about it. I had not. So, I prayed, and the Lord strongly encouraged me to go. And, then, I lost my voice, so I prayed again, and the Lord strongly encouraged me to go. So, we drove from SC to Nashville, TN in 2012, totally on faith, and up to the moment I recorded the song, I still had no voice. But, when we began to record, God gave me the voice he wanted me to have for that song, i.e. it was a miracle, and I had to sing not only the melody, but the background voice, too.
