My Father’s Lullaby

My fear, it creeps in me
so I run to my room in peace
switched off the lamp of my body
to fix my eyes and see glory

I entered with thanksgiving
even when Im bearing my worries
to your arms i run and lean
like a child hiding for security

I lift up my head and see
how beautiful your heart is for me
you were moved with mercy
for the sake of your love, you forgive

You did not condemn me
even when I am blemished
You wanted to wash my filth
so you did and intervened

You parted the seas
You made the storms still
You fought in wars valiantly
and laid your life for me

even death has lost its sting
all this things you did for me
So I enter with thanksgiving
even when Im bearing my worries

for you know I am weak
but I know you saved me
your grace is sufficient for me
so I lean to you to be still

then you sing a lullaby to me
so rock-a-bye baby my dear
you have been tired lately
from overthinking all these worries

Just stay and be still
You’ll be safe and sound with me
For I’m your Father since the beginning
You’re my child, I’ll never leave

so rock-a-bye baby my dear
you have been tired lately
from overthinking all these worries
I am here, I am here

Just stay and be still
You’ll be safe and sound with me
For I’m your Father since the beginning
You’re my child, I’ll never leave

Relentless Woman

This is a woman i want to be
a relentless one
She knows what her identity is
in the eyes of God

No one gives her insecurity
For she never crash
In the past, she failed miserably
Now, she’s towards God

Relentless woman only flourish
She knows what’s true love
She knows it’s not about the physique
but clinging to God 

At night, she speaks through her tears and grieve
From mourning, joy comes
Her identity’s securely sealed
For she pursue God

This is a woman i want to be
a relentless one
She knows what her identity is
in the eyes of God

To the relentless woman i will be
For I pursue God
I can only say nothing but cheers
For I see the light

Be Patient

When I look at my past
all I can see is wrath
all I can see is dark
Oh for who’s fault but mine?

I write my heartaches
and burst out my anger
the dangers of rage
Oh when will I be patient?

When I look at me now
my heart is still undone
Oh when will i run back
like the prodigal son?

Silent at this moment
A whisper from heaven came
Emmanuel, Emmanuel
In your affliction, be patient

I choose the time
Rush of wind from above
It is I, It is I
The one and only Alpha

Heart starts to beat louder
From the heavens,
A gushing flame of fire
Behold, reap the harvest

I choose the time
Rush of wind from above
It is I, It is I
The one and only Alpha

Stand firm on your faith
Know that I am able
In your life, it will be evident
the prophecy, always remember

I choose the time
Rush of wind from above
It is I, It is I
The one and only Alpha

In your affliction, be patient
In your test, be patient
In your challenges, be patient
But in everything, pray

~ M. Salonga

Until only you are seen

Have been humbled for a while
Seen my own iniquities
But here I am still alive
With such wanting and longing

To be deeply in love
Until only you are seen
have our lives intertwined
To keep my heart steady

Wandering in the oceans
Persevering and waiting
I don’t understand it now
but soon, it will be revealed

Have some patient little one
as you have said in my sleep
For you know Im still undone
So I trust your artistry

The slow moving of the sun
Makes me thirsty, Makes me seek
Process me in the desert land
Until only you are seen

To my dearest one above
In the process of waiting
Let it all fade away & be gone
Until only you are seen

~M. Salonga
