Himmelstøv til jord

Ingen tåre er så ekte som når
Jeg gråter med deg, Gud
Dine rop er mine rop
I mitt hjerte Du roper
på dine tapte sjeler
Og jeg gråter med deg, Gud

Ingen glede er så god som når
Jeg smiler med deg, Gud
Dine seire er mine
Alt makter jeg i Ham
som gjør meg sterk
Og du elsker mitt smil, Gud

Ingen hengivenhet stråler gjennom
Som Din kjærlighet, Gud
Du tar min mørkeste natt
og gir den lys
Til Dine armer løper jeg
Alltid tilbake, Gud

Intet håp er så sterkt som
Det håpet Du planter, Gud
Planter i dypet av mitt sinn
Ekte og uovervinnelig
Ingenting kan stjele det håp
Som Himmelen holder

– Himmelstøv til jord –
Som berører vårt indre kaos
av menneskelighet

Himmelstøv til jord

Heaven’s Roar

What is life, What is here, but dry lands and despair
No watering well
– thirsting –
for living water
– thirsting –

We all long. We all feel. We all search.
for truth

What are we, Who is Man, but solitary footprints in burning sand
No solid ground
– fighting –
to save ourselves
– fighting-

We all long. We all hope. We all believe.
in something

Can you hear the Heaven’s roar
shouting like thunder
Raindrops breaking through the desert
The Promise of a new world
is ours

He died
so that we could drink His Living Water
and breathe in abundant skies of Grace
Now in Him we Live

Heaven’s Roar

Quiet Explosion

In the winter of my life
Snow lost its white glimmering light
and turned grey
Bitter coldness trumphed the warmth of my heart
All that which I trusted collided
Crashed and burnt into flames
Like fireworks
Ate up all the stars in my sky
I had to fight
Everyday with all my might
I had to fight in
a quiet explosion
I never screamed it out
but my soul cried out
in desperate tones of desperate sounds
Hear me suffer
in this quiet explosion

Quiet Explosion

Just to feel what it feels like

I’d like to give up everything, just to feel what it feels like. To be completely free. No facades, no cascades. No pretenders. No clocks ticking, no time running out. Just the embrace of loving people, assembled by the noise of impetuous tunes of music. Carefree, in an ocean of no dangerous waves. I’d like to give up everything, just to feel what it feels like. I would love people until I was so tired of loving them that I wouldn’t have any strength left. I would cry my heart out without having anything to lose. I would run until my lungs were emptied of air. I would fall off a cliff just to feel the earth far away, far under, and away. Just to feel what it feels like. 

Just to feel what it feels like

Winterflower

Darkness comes to me in my sleep
To steal the morning light away
Glimmering colors turned to dust
From the ashes arose a new Day

A new day, God promises a new day when I can
Laugh and Cry in the rain
So sudden my world fell under my feet
All the questions, all the pain
Still echoes through my brain
It echoes, echoes through my brain

I loved too much, too much
Glimmering colors turned to Dust
I’ll grow cold, my Winterflower

There is nothing left to do, I have to
Lose and let Love be Defeated
Let it be, Let it be what it’s come to be
From the ashes arose a new Way

A new way, God promises a new way so I can
Live and Learn and Pray
So sudden Flowers withered and Died
I sowed and I sowed 
Awaiting beauty but instead
It grew into a Broken heart

I loved too much, too much
Glimmering colors turned to Dust
I’ll grow cold, my Winterflower
