MY MELANCHOLIC MESSIAH: A POEM

Those eyes! Those deep, deep eyes!

The gentle warmth that tempers ill

The kindly glow that draws me still

Oh! The joy of gazing on that precious face

My master! King and Sovereign

Glorious love personified

Once with mortal flesh allied

Now transfigured with unutterable glory

Why lookest thou on so dolefully on Him?

Is it because He looks melancholic?

Does it make your heart heavy and sick?

To look on fallen majesty, thus, this Good Friday?

Tis but to break your heart, He lookest thus

To bring to fruition your stone-like soul

Tis to give you grace in grave abundance

Tis because He loves you wretch, that He lookest thus

Look not on Him with pity

But lookest thou with humid tears in your eyes

Look till you weep, once or twice

Look till your heart overflows

Look! Oh! Look! At my melancholic Messiah

Tis because He loves you that he lookest thus

Fallen are the mighty, fallen His absolute majesty

Wretch that thou art! Look till your eyes gush

Those eyes! Oh! The eyes of my Fallen King!

They will suffice till the end-time bells ring!
