Clawing out the elixir that frees
All peoples across the lands and seas
That those who have died may drink and rise
Unchained by our sins and unstained by our lies

God bless,

Burden of Atlas

The burden of Atlas on a man
Who asks for his cup to be taken away
And yet submits to a greater plan
Though his pain to sweat to blood ran
He still took the time to pray

A carpenter by humble trade
He will die upon a tree
Questioned and remaining staid
He chose the ransom to be paid
The debt that was placed on you and me

The burden of Atlas on this god
Who emptied himself into this cup
Submitting to being called a fraud
He perfects us who are flawed
And by being raised he lifts us up

God bless,
Joshua Fahey

Palm Sunday

Let my praise never fade
Let my thanks always ring
Though Calvary comes
With Death's mortal sting

God bless,

How to Empty Oneself?

How to empty oneself?
Give yourself away
Hope to the desperate
Love to a stray

An existence of servitude
A pauper, a slave
Be poor in spirit
To enter heaven's enclave

Take all you have
And lay it at the cross
Give Jesus every win
Give Jesus every loss

And on the last day
That he'll raise you I'll pray

God bless,
Joshua Fahey

Icy Haiku

Gliding blade bearing
The last of winter's glory
Before the rink melts

God bless,

Turn Back Your Heart to Truth

Turn back your heart to truth
Reject the wicked lies
That Satan tells to soothe 
Before he takes you by surprise
And say you cannot rise
But recall Christ's cross as proof
And turn back your heart to truth

God bless,
Joshua Fahey
