A King Has Been Born
« on: Sun Feb 17, 2013 - 14:11:07 »
(an Easter meditation)

lowly born and placed in a manger,
who could know the threat and the danger?
a King has been born,
yet His crown is of thorns.

so, from the beginning,
the world steady spinning.
steady was his pace,
onward, to the “Skull-place.”

from glory he descended,
only to be suspended.
from eternity he emerged,
only to be scourged.
In our sinful world he appeared,
only to die and to be speared.
to our lowland he arrived,
finally, to be crucified.

some call it Golgotha, others Calvary;
but, there he died for you and me!
He abandoned His throne,
and, went to the Garden alone.
as blood was his sweat.
how he heard Hell’s awful threat.
the demons in Hell all let out a howl;
the people He loved, soon had a scowl.

all would depart; not one would stay.
yet, for such men, He gladly would pay.
His friends, the Twelve, they all ran away.
one, him betrayed, and then got his pay.

then He was beaten; (some call it “tried”)
witnesses stood, and lied and lied.
“enough, we’ve heard; this is all blasphemy!
out with Him now, straight to the tree!”

Prince of Peace, both Lord and Christ.
yet, we, wicked man, Him we rejected, even thrice!
God Most High, El Shaddai
“crucify, crucify,” was our cry.

“Father, forgive them, they know not what they do”
He died for me, and he died for you.

yes, Friday was dark; but, light dawned Sunday.
Christmas points to Easter; and Easter the Way.
arisen is the Morning Star;
and as the Wise Men from afar,
let us trust Him, love Him,
receive Him and follow Him!
