Teddy is the death row inmate that I write to. I have written before about his depth of thought and understanding of the Bible. It lives in the words that he writes. He has an interest in music and has sent me some of the lyrics he has written.
Flying In The Sky
Chorus: Flying in the sky, it takes you high/ To new adventures, you never soar/ It’s very breath, God gives to you/ So you can make it, beyond the sky.
Verse: Walking in the narrow path, there are obstacles/ It can be a stepping stone or a stumbling block./ Hard pressed on every side, trials of dying to one’s self/ Becoming more like HIm, His light becoming more bright./ Being built upon the stone, is walking upon high/ Be alert in the path, the devil is there to try you./ Walk by faith not by sight, keep the focus on the hope/ God has made a way for you to escape.
Verse: In this hope I see, two people flying and twirling/ In the air God is making, the two into one./ Fashioned in God’s light, their hands in God’s hands/ Mounting up on eagles wings, God will never let you fall/
Talk: Pilgrims progress in an adventure/ Travling in deep dark valley paths./ But walking high are bright mountain roads/ A privilege that anyone is blessed to see.
