The Glory Of The Lord


The love of God manifested in Christ
is an indication
of His peace and blessings.

Christ is Emanuel
(God with us)
but He had left His glory
and His kingdom
to reconcile all men to God

and no person has know
more sorrow, heartache and longing
and He was driven
to rise before the sun
to speak with His Father

and He prayed for strength
while sweating blood
to be able to carry the sins of all men
and hanging naked on a cross
He asked for forgiveness for our sins

and when darkness fell upon the earth
He was alone and His heart was torn apart
while he cried for all of mankind

and all of heaven wept over Him
and when His time on earth was spent
His Father tore the heavens open
to bring His son back home to Him

but His heart did stay
with a world of broken people
when His spirit was poured out.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
