~~~ LORD ~~~

~ LORD ~


Glory to Thee, Everlasting Old Sage;

For hearts draweth wage where Thy Word fills our page.

From vowels in swift tears which flow too fast to read,

To victorious lines of Thoust life-giving creed.


Thine old world debunked via Nohaic flood;

Thy covenant anew bound by Spirit, water, blood.

Thee won many names, ever Art Thou distinguished;

Ye burn with a flame which couldst ne'er be extinguished.


Disrobing the earth, parting creased, cobalt gown,

Lo, Thee clefted Red sea, winning timeless renown;

Thou witnessed death's angel Passover door jambs,

Lintels daubed by the blood of those innocent lambs.


You're the love-light which shines from a mother's firm smile,

And the peace which transcends all our thoughts with your style;

Aye, Ye gaveth Thy Son for our sins and our shame,

So I scribe You these words, lauding praise to Thy Name.


THE END

      Amen to the poetic tribute of Praise to the Risen Savior! Indeed, He is Lord. May the message of Easter affect our lives positively between celebrations. Thanks for sharing the table of comparison between Moses and the Messiah. Voted Up!
