Saint Martin of Atlanta


O Holy Spirit
Come and show me the truth
So I can tell the Truth
To Everyone
The Righteous live on
In the hearts of those who believe
They shine their light
And expose those who deceive

America - True Land of Liberty
Stretching forth from Sea to Sea to Sea
Power of unequalled industry
The Leader in prosperity

But your mentality 
Has outrun your morality
Superfluous Wealth 
Exists with Abject poverty
Segregation kills
Basic human unity
Bridge this abyss

The God of the Universe eventually takes a stand

Born into the Church
Nourished in the eye of God
For a Holy purpose
For a battle to be fought
Atlanta's uneasy surface
Propped up by racist rot
Punctured by his birth
A man not to be forgotten

Saint Martin
Of Atlanta Georgia
Manifested
The Kingdom of God on Earth
Equality 
In the eye of Lord Jesus
The greatest
Of the Civil Rights Prophets

Love will save our world
And our civilization
Love even for enemies
You can't see straight when you hate
Love the individual
Who does the evil deed

While hating the deed that this person does to you.

Injustice anywhere
Is a threat to justice everywhere
Never feel that the cause
Of righteousness and justice
Is doomed
We have cosmic companionship
Forever working thru history
For the establishment of His kingdom
Never give up

No lie
Can live forever
The universe
Is on our side
In the struggle
Stand up for justice
Go out
With that faith today

For when people 
Get caught up
With that which is right
If they will sacrifice
There is no stopping point
Short of victory

Mine eyes have seen the Glory of the coming of the Lord

Jesus Party

Jesus Party 
It's time to party

Jesus Christ is here all year
It's time to put away hatred and fear
Just groove with His Love and you will find the way
It's good to have a friend on Judgment Day

Jesus Party
It's time to party

Jesus Christ, He is your friend
He will back you til the bitter end
He protects the weak, His Love is strong
With Jesus Christ you can't go wrong

Jesus Party
It's time to party

Fully God and fully man
Don't get upset if you don't understand
Just follow the light of Jesus Christ
Shining down so pure and bright

Jesus Party
It's time to party

Martyr's Creed


Lord God Almighty

Because you have considered me worthy of this day and hour
To receive a portion, among the number of the martyrs,
Among whom may I be received today 
As a (rich and acceptable) sacrifice,
In the cup of your Christ
Unto the resurrection 
The resurrection of eternal life
Both of body and of soul
In the incorruption 
of the Holy Spirit,
Just as you have prepared and revealed (beforehand), 
And fulfilled,
Receive me today
O undeceiving and true God.

For this reason
and for all
All these things
I praise you
I bless you
I glorify you,
Through the eternal 
Heavenly high priest
Jesus Christ, your beloved Son
Through whom to you
With Him 
And the Holy Spirit
Be glory now 
and forever, 
Amen.

Father of your beloved and blessed Son Jesus Christ
Through whom we have received knowledge of you
God of angels and powers
And every created thing
And all the race of the just
Who dwell before you,
I bless you

In the cup of your Christ
Unto the resurrection 
The resurrection of eternal life
Both of body and soul
In the incorruption 
of the Holy Spirit,
Receive me today
O undeceiving and true God.

Saint Herman of Alaska

You knew the wonder of the morning sun
That Shines on high in the Arctic Dawn

Born to the merchant life Serpukhov
You Entered Trinity-Sergius Hermitage

The Queen of Heaven shone her light on you
When that fatal throat abscess was removed

You went to serve Elder Nazary
At Lake Logoda's Valaam Monastery

You were appointed to the mission's task
To preach the gospel to Alaska

You founded New Valaam on Spruce Island
Near Kodiak's Church of the Resurrection

Your superhuman strength distinguished you
As did your life in ascetic truth

You in your solitude were not alone
You knew the Angels and their silent tones

You interceded for the native rights
You would not give up without a gentle fight

You labored long in the lonely night
To comfort those in the fever's plight

You were a teacher of the civilized
Who recognized your lessons as most wise

You liked to talk about eternity
Of salvation and our destinies.

You kept the fires and the floods at bay
Every animal listened to the words you'd say

The flood waters began to rise
There was nowhere on the island to hide

Mary the Mother of our God
Interceded with a nod

You placed her icon on a bank of sand
And drew a line between flood and land

The Queen of Heaven shone her light thru you
And let you show the world the truth

Of Jesus Christ and the Trinity
Three Persons in one Unity.

Rolling the Stone

Three days after
His Crucifixion
Servants of the Master
The Myrrh bearing women
Hastened to His Tomb
To preserve with Spices
Found His grave was opened
By divine devices

Soldiers set to guard
Now to another zone
The Angel of the Lord
Rolled away the stone

The Mystery of the Ages
Confounding worldly sages

Early in the morning
At the break of dawn
Mary Magdalene
The Myrrh bearing women
The Angel said to them
Shining like lightning
Why seek the living
As among the dead

See the empty tomb
Try to understand
Jesus Christ is Risen
Destroying Deathís command

Resurrecting all from eternal rest
Conquering Death by Death

As the Dawn was breaking
And nightís dark powers wane
The myrrh bearing women
Mary Magdalene
The saw the empty tomb
It all seemed so absurd
Like the Virginís womb
The Angel said these words

Tell His Disciples
Of the resurrection
Inform the Apostles
Of their new direction

Rolling the Stone away
For you the new creation awaits

Jesus Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ have mercy upon us.

Demons on my Trail

The crashing wail awoke me
The smoke through the door
Eyes like the morningstar
Flames from his mouth
If you are my master
Then you may destroy me
But if sent by demons
Waste no time retreating
For I am a servant of Christ

A vision of the holy ones
Will give you full assurance
Arrives in such tranquility
Transforming fear to joy
Just ask, "Who are you?"
"Where do you come from?"
Someone diabolical
Immediately weakened
Finding your spirit strong

I saw Satan fall like lightning from Heaven

God won't know those
Those who boast about
Who boast about defeating
These misguided demons
But you must know
Learn not to falter
Nor to fear these demons
Know how this is done
And DO IT

Jesus is cool

Wakes up in the morning
He makes a choice
Choose to be a victim
To give evil a voice
Or to learn from life
Point out the positive
That's the bottom line
He chooses how to live
Into this environment
Born into this world
It's so easy to do evil
And so hard to do good
Easy to hurt others
And so hard to forgive
Easily suspicious
Trust is elusive

Adam and Eve
Made that first mistake
In paradise
So long ago
But Jesus Christ
Washed it all away
He gives us life
He gives us hope.

Starting off for work
She makes a choice
Suffer at the hand of jerks
Drown in all that noise
Or as mediator
Create harmony
A unifying center
For many melodies
It's easy to produce
Forces of division
Division in the world
Division within
We may not be guilty
As the courts resolve
Of the sins of others
But we're always involved.

We are blessed
With the power
To reshape
This world we love
And to
Imbue it
With new meaning
From God above

Don't misuse
Your power
In order to
Fashion instruments
Of greed and corruption
Of ugliness and destruction

Made in the image of
One God in Trinity
We achieve salvation
Interdependently
Any action done by
One of humanity
Affects all the others
In solidarity

Love implies
Freedom
Without freedom
There would be no sin
But without freedom
Man would not be
In God's image
Or God's communion

Cleanse Me

Cleanse me
From my iniquity
Save me
From all who would oppress me

Many are my enemies
They sit around trying to shoot me down
They won't let me be
With their evil eyes and despicable lies
They set a trap for me
They lay their shares for me everywhere
Oh God, set me free
Let me fly away and live another day

Cleanse me from my disease
And set me free
Cleanse me from iniquity
And give me Liberty

Oh God beneath your wings
I sing for joy, a joyous noise
You give me everything
Make me grateful, not so hateful
Freedom is a blessed thing
You gotta use it, or you'll lose it
Let Liberty ring
Around the world every boy and girl

Cleanse me from my disease
And set me free
Cleanse me from iniquity
And give me Liberty

Cleanse me
Save me
Free me
Release me

Cleanse me from my disease
And set me free
Cleanse me from iniquity
And give me Liberty

Oh God you are my shield
You help the humble when they stumble
Your Love is very real
It builds me up and fills my cup
What will you now reveal
The true direction with protection
I want to feel the zeal
Make me mighty in your sight

Cleanse me from my disease
And set me free
Cleanse me from iniquity
And give me Liberty

Face the Fire

Do the Shadrach
On the backtrack
Face the fire
Take it higher
Make it hot
And don't stop

Don't let Meshach
Do the sad sack
Face the fire
Take it higher
Nebuchadnazz
On the razzle dazz

Abednego
Here we go
Face the fire
Take it higher
Was three before
Now three be four

And he never did bow
And he never did kneel

Saints and Prophets


Long ago
In ancient times
They spoke the word
To a world gone blind
Their righteous mind
Could see what's real
And get a holy nation
On its knees to kneel

You need ears to hear
That tiny voice
The voice of God
Deep in your heart
You need eyes that see
A tongue that speaks
To speak the truth
The absolute

Saints and Prophets are all around
Lending a helping hand when you are down

That nation stumbled
In full retreat
Defeated by
Their own deceit
Words of wisdom
Were ignored
They fell under
A foreign sword

You need ears to hear
That tiny voice
The voice of God
Deep in your heart
You need eyes that see
A tongue that speaks
To speak the truth
The absolute

Pray for one another
There is power in
A righteous prayer

When you see injustice
How do you respond
Look away unnoticed
Do you move along

Somebody tells a lie
About a truth you know
Do you keep your silence
Do you let it go

Salvation
Is personal
Jesus saves
The righteous soul
Out of the grave
Into the dark light
Death don't shatter
The unity of Christ

You need ears to hear
You need eyes that see
Take up the cross
Just like the Boss
Be someone who is
Not a fool that aint
Do the will of God
And you are a saint

Saints and Prophets are all around
Lending a helping hand when you are down

Let the dead
Bury their own
You must go
Proclaim the word
And do the work
The promised land of
God almighty
Is at hand

You need ears to hear
You need eyes that see
Take up the cross
Just like the Boss
Be someone who is
Not a fool that aint
Do the will of God
And you are a saint

Saints and Prophets are all around
Lending a helping hand when you are down

Three Angels

Let the contest be ours
So that Anger does not rule us
Nor Desire overwhelm us

The anger of man does not work the righteousness of God

Desire, when it has conceived, gives birth to Sin
And Sin, when it is fully grown, brings forth death.

Let us keep our hearts in all watchfulness
We have terrible and villainous enemies.

We contend not, however, against flesh and blood
But against the Principalities
Against the Powers
Against the Spiritual Hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places
Against the World Rulers of this present darkness.

Set my Soul out of Prison

Set my soul out of prison
That I may give thanks to Your name
My voice cries to God
Before Jesus Christ I pour out my complaint
I tell my trouble
My voice makes supplication to the most Holy Spirit
When my spirit fails you know my road
Deliver me from my persecutors
For they are too strong for me
My enemies have hidden a trap for me
Along the road that I travel
Look to my right and see
No one cares about me
You are my refuge O Lord
The righteous will surround me
