Come Sit By My Fire

(Trevor Toews, November2, 2019) 

 

COME SIT BY MY FIRE, I WILL SHARE IT WITH YOU 

ALL THAT MY FIRE AFFORDS

ITS WARMTH AND ITS LIGHT , THAT IT GIVES TO ALL 

WHO CHOOSE TO GATHER AROUND 

 

WE CAN SHARE OF ITS WARMTH, SHARE OF ITS LIGHT 

BE BLESSED BY THE GIFTS THAT IT BRINGS 

BY DAY OR BY NIGHT, EACH SEASON IT GIVES 

A REASON TO GATHER AROUND 

 

WE CAN SHARE OF OUR STORIES, REMEMBER THE GLORIES 

OF VIC’TRIES WON IN THE PAST 

REMEMBER THE ONES, NO LONGER ALIVE 

AND SHARE OF EACH OTHER’S TEARS 

 

WE CAN SHARE IN THE MEALS , THAT MY FIRE PREPARES 

AND SIT CONTENT EACH DAY 

AND WHEN WE SLEEP , IT OFFERS PROTECTION 

FROM HARMS THAT WANDER AT NIGHT 

 

I WILL LAUGH WHEN YOU LAUGH , CRY WHEN YOU CRY 

WALK THROUGH THIS LIFE WITH YOU 

SHARE ALL THAT IS MINE , AND BE THANKFUL FOR YOU 

EACH DAY THAT WE HAVE TO SHARE 

 

I WILL SHARE ALL THESE BLESSINGS , THAT COME FROM MY FIRE 

IF YOU WILL COME SIT WITH ME 

THE TRAILS OF LIFE , ARE MADE BETTER WITH FRIENDS 

WHO CHOOSE TO COME SIT BY MY FIRE

Enter My Rest

(Trevor Toews, July 21, 2021) 

 

SON YOU’RE TOO BUSY, YOU OUGHT NOT TO BE 

THOUGH THERE WILL BE TIMES, I WILL CALL YOU TO BE 

 

RIGHT HERE AND RIGHT NOW, I HAVE CALLED YOU TO REST 

I KNOW WHAT YOU NEED, I KNOW WHAT IS BEST 

 

BECAUSE YOU ARE MORTAL, YOU NEED YOUR REST 

YOUR MORTAL FRAME, REQUIRES THE REST 

 

WHEN, I CALL UPON YOU SON TO SUCCEED 

IT WILL REQUIRE MORE STRENGTH THAN YOU NEED 

 

YOU WILL THEN NEED, MY ANOINTING INDEED 

NO STRENGTH OF THE FLESH, WILL EVER SUCCEED 

 

ALL YOU NEED DO, IS TO COME AWAY

WITHDRAW FROM THE HURRY, OF THE DAY 

 

HERE IN THE SILENCE, HERE IN THE CALM

IS WHERE YOU WILL FIND, YOUR HEALING BALM 

 

NOTHING IS NEEDED, FOR YOU TO BRING

JUST COME AND BE BLESSED, WHILE I SING 

 

I’LL SING MY LOVE SONG, OVER YOU

THAT’S ALL, MY SON, YOU NEED TO DO 

 

SO TRUST IN MY PROMISE, ENTER MY REST 

BEFORE YOU BURN-OUT, I MAKE MY REQUEST 

 

CEASE FROM YOUR STRIVING, I DON’T NEED YOUR BEST 

WALK IN MY GRACE, THIS IS THE BEST 

 

THEN WHEN YOUR JOURNEY, IS COMPLETE 

AND YOU APPROACH MY JUDGEMENT SEAT 

 

YOU WILL HEAR ME SAY WELL DONE MY SON 

ENTER MY JOY THAT IS SWEET, SO, SWEET

Still

 (Trevor Toews, January 28, 2022) 

 

YOU CALL ME TO COME 

TO COME AND BE STILL 

BE STILL IN YOUR HOLY PRESENCE 

 

WHEN ALL THAT SURROUNDS ME 

BELLERS AND SCREAMS 

FOR ATTENTION AND ACTION AND TIME 

 

BUT HERE AM I LORD 

BECAUSE YOU HAVE CALLED ME 

TO COME AND BE STILL WITH YOU HERE 

 

IN PATIENCE I WAIT 

TO HEAR WHAT YOU SAY 

THAT BRINGS PEACE TO A RESTLESS SOUL 

 

I REST IN YOUR PRESENCE 

IN PEACE AND REST 

WAITING FOR YOU TO INSTILL 

 

THE REST THAT YOU PROMISED 

TO FOLKS WHO WILL COME 

WHO NEED PEACE FOR THEIR WEARY SOULS

 

YOU’LL BE MY GOD 

AND I’LL BE YOUR SON 

THROUGH-OUT THE REST OF MY LIFE

 

TO WALK HAND IN HAND 

WITH MY FATHER OF LIGHTS 

FOREVER AT PEACE WITH YOU 

 

SOON IT BE 

THAT I’LL WALK THROUGH THE VEIL 

THAT KEEPS ME FROM SEEING YOU LORD 

 

THEN FOREVER MORE 

IN YOUR PRESENCE I’LL BE 

AT PEACE AND AT REST AND STILL

I Love The Holy Trinity

 

I LOVE THE HOLY TRINITY 

BECAUSE THEY CARE FOR YOU AND ME 

BECAUSE THEY HEARD MY HUMBLE PLEA 

AND WASHED MY SINFUL SPIRIT CLEAN 

 

I LOVE MY FATHER GOD FOR SURE 

FOR SENDING JESUS; TRUE AND PURE 

FOR MY SALVATION; HE SECURED 

FOR GRANTING ME THIS HOPEFUL CURE 

 

I LOVE JESUS; THAT’S FOR SURE 

FOR THE RANSOM HE SECURED 

FOR THE CROSS; WHAT HE ENDURED 

PROVIDING SALVATION; HE ENSURED 

 

I LOVE GOD’S HOLY SPIRIT DEAR 

FOR REMINDING US THAT GOD IS NEAR 

FOR GIVING PEACE; REMOVING ALL FEAR 

FOR SPEAKING GOD’S WORD WHEN LIFE IS UNCLEAR
