Ever Truth's River

By Ken G. Cooper


Luke 13:11-13


Eighteen long years, each that much worse than the last,
I’m bowed down to the ground, in sickness held fast.
I crave to be healed but have nowhere to go.
Whatever I do is both painful and slow.
I believed in God, but the years took their toll,
He’s left me to suffer; He’s leaving me ill.
Each hour, each minute, there is no hope to give.
I keep asking myself, “Just why should I live?”


Deep in my consciousness I feel someone call
A nudging awareness that this wasn’t all.
A spiritual sensation floods my being,
A Love so pure it is quite beyond seeing.
I turn my head sideways and see this dear man
He calls me towards him; I know that I can.
I sense only Love and forget about me.
“Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.”


His hands reach out and I feel Truth touch my soul
I’m now standing beside him, upright and whole!
The pain from the past has just dropped from my thought
The sheer joy of freedom the Christ has now wrought.
He holds my hands firmly, looks deep in my eyes:
Beholding perfection, I now realise
God loves me as made me, this fact always see:

Let Love Lead the Way

By Ken G. Cooper

The Christmas star shines on each year
It never goes away,
Its message through eternity:
“Hear what the angels say”

There is one God who loves us all,
Whatever we have done,
And if we do what things are good,
In peace our lives will run.

Now Jesus said, when he grew up
My peace I leave with you.
Throughout his life he let Love lead
And wished that we would too.

This is his wish for all mankind,
Not just for Christmas day,
But for each moment in each year,
That Love will guide your way.

So, let’s hold hands, reach out with love,
Respect what each may say,
For when Love leads, we feel the Christ,
And God will bless your day.

*“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” Luke 2:14

We Are All God's Beloved

By Ken Cooper

Father-Mother help us to see
We shine with Your authority.
Your Love reflects as everyone;
We hear these holy words: “My Son”!

Christ Jesus came as loving proof,
He gave to all and shared this Truth:
Man is beloved. This vision true
Confirms our glory is of You.

We are all God's beloved.
Christ Jesus, in his glory, proved it.

See Matt. 3:17
