BALLAD OF CJ JOYNER

 


She's a sweet, charming lady,

with a big heart inside.

She's always looking pretty,

and she's a friend of mine.

You can see it in her smile,

and the words she would say.

You will know it by her kindness,

that she shows every day.

You can feel it in your heart,

in the joy she would bring.

She welcomes me with love,

my heart wants to sing.

You can see she really cares,

in everything she would do.

She always took the time,

to help me through.

You can see she is friendly,

ready to help me again.

The message is quite clear,

that she is my friend.

WOULD YOU CALL

 


If I promised you, I wouldn't scare you

with my looks, would you call?

If I said, I was bald and skinny

and not really tall.

If I told you, I was poor but

was friendly and kind, would you call?

If I promised you I will help you

anytime at all.

If I said, I was shy and didn't

drink or smoke, would you call?

If I told you I would take you

to a shopping mall.

If I said I was a Christian and I wouldn't

go to a bar, would you call?

If I promised you, I would treat you nice

and not swear at all.

If you said yes to any of the above,

all you have to do is call.

BROKEN DREAMS

I've reached rock bottom and not only that.
I have no friends, I'm just a doormat.
I see the evil get the upper hand.
I see the suffering, I don't understand.
I dream we help out and love everyone.
My dream is shattered, what can be done?
I reach out to seek another friend.
When no one comes, life seems to end.
I'm hanging on to the end of my rope.
I cry out to Jesus who is my hope.
I call out to my savior in this plea.
I need you, Jesus. Please help me.

BE THE ONE

 

One smile can spread cheer.

One hug can touch a heart.

One greeting card can show you care.

One phone call can restore hope.

One visit can bring comfort.

One hand can wipe a tear.

One joke can bring laughter.

One prayer can be the answer.

One person can make a difference.

Today I will be the one.

How about you?

You can be the one too!

CJ JOYNER

 


A single knock on my door.

It's my friend, CJ, I've been waiting for.

A forgiving heart, a thoughtful deed.

It truly describes my friend indeed.

Changed my life and helped me too.

My life is better because of you.

You seldom find a friend like mine.

Sweet, caring and always kind.

We had joy, we had fun.

We were happy since day one.

We were thankful what God had done.

Since our friendship had begun.

A single knock on my door.

It's my friend, CJ, I've been waiting for.

A caring heart, a helping hand.

It truly describes my best friend.

A warm embrace, food you shared.

Moments like this, show you cared.

The words we say, we mean it too.

Like bless your heart and I love you.

We had joy, we had fun.

We were happy since day one.

 We were thankful what God had done.

Since our friendship had begun.

NOW AND THEN

 


We take the time, to reflect on the past.

We cherish the moments and wish it would last.

Those times we shared, in our work and play.

The many memories we have, of each new day.

From dawn to sunset, it was so much fun.

The joy of success, in the work we've done.

We look forward, to the new challenges we take.

And all the big plans, we want to make.

We reach for our dreams and seek a new friend.

And take on obstacles, whatever life may send.

With a new set of goals, it's time to proceed.

We give our best and know we'll succeed.

MY GRIEVING HEART

 


My heart is still grieving,

for my friend who died.

I can't stop mourning,

even though I tried.

It's so hard to endure,

with each passing day.

In a time of sorrow,

that won't go away.

It feels like I died

but the pain is still alive.

I'll do anything I can,

just so I can survive.

Will my grieving heart heal,

it's hard to tell.

One thing I do know,

it hurts like hell.

Memories Of Yesterday

 


Those days are gone, those years still shine.

Those memories remain, a close friend of mine.

From the first day, when we just met.

To the last day, I will never forget.

All those years of good and bad.

Those memories are precious and never sad.

I often stop and think of my friend.

I ask myself why did it end.

Those times of fun, those times of laughs.

Those times of love, those days have passed.

Those days are gone, those years still shine.

Those memories remain, a close friend of mine.

Ballad For The lonely

 


Who can I call when I am feeling down.

Or share the time when no one is around.

Who can I love or lend a hand?

Or joke around and be there friend.

I live each day with no friend around.

Not seeing anyone but sun go down.

I keep on looking, I keep on smiling.

I  never give up but keep on trying.

Who do I know that I could see?

Someone who wants to be with me.

Where can I go that I could find.

Someone that can be a friend of mine.

I live each day with no friend around.

Not seeing anyone but sun go down.

I keep on looking, I keep on smiling.

I never give up but keep on trying.

ALONE

Feeling all alone and no one I can see.
Real friend I need, someone close to me.
I can think of many times I could use a friend.
Even those times when life seems to end.
Nothing I can do to change anything.
Despite all my pleas, I am lonely as can be.

THE SILENT CRY

 


I cry for love I never had,

even when I was a little boy.

I dream many times about love,

that would make life a joy.

There's many days I see that love,

and I ask myself why not me?

I spend those days all alone,

and no one to see.

Is there any life for me to live,

if there is no friend.

I say many times there isn't,

and I wish someone would come again.

I GO TO PRAY

 


I bow my head and I start to pray.

I ask the Lord to help me today.

I know he can help, I really believe.

I can call him for everything I need.

So every morning before I start.

I pray to the Lord with an open heart.

Then something happens, I can't explain.

I raise my voice and praise his name.

I get this feeling I need to stand.

I take this moment to raise my hand.

I feel his presence and I start to sing.

I thank you Lord for what you bring.

I pull out the bible and start to read.

The promise he made, he will always lead.

So each day I live, I hold on to this faith.

I can go on with every step I take.

ABC's on Salvation

 


All of us have sinned and gone astray.

But there is hope for us here today.

Call on our Savior Jesus when you pray

Do this now and he will lead the way.

Ever since the moment Jesus came.

Faith reminds us to believe his name.

God sent his Son to save you and me.

He died and rose again to set us free.

If there is one message we need to hear.

Jesus gave a promise to always be near

Keep this in mind whatever you do.

Leave it in his hands and he will help you.

More you know him, the message is clear.

No love is greater than what he did here.

On that wooden cross he showed his love.

Part of a plan that was from God above.

Query minds there can be no doubt.

Repent of your sins, there is no way out.

Salvation is found, so be sorry for your sin.

This moment now, your new life can begin.

Until he returns, let us not forget.

Victory is for those who are already set.

With Jesus help in the life he gave.

X is marked to those who are saved.

You know this message that you have heard.

Zealous hearts are needed to spread the word.
