First Place

Above the clouds, my heart can soar

The pain has gone

It is no more.

The clenching fist that held it tight

Released its hold

It has no might.

For my kids I was weighed down

Hurt and worry

All around.

The sky has cleared and joy has come

They are His

It’s settled, done.

For I’ve released them to His care

Thus escaping

That great snare…

That held me down, that held be back

That left me open

To attack.

But God is on His throne above

The God of mercy

Peace and love.

This God I worship and adore

First place given


I love my kids so very much

I love their smiles

I love their touch.

But now they have their rightful place

God, they’re Yours

O Lord of grace.

You shall have no other gods before me (Exodus 20:3 NIV).
