Some Said It Thundered - Poem by Royston Allen

'Was that thunder we heard just then? ' They said,
looking at each other in fear and dread.
'Or God speaking in a thunderous tone
to His Belovèd Son from heavens' throne? '

For the voice they heard and thought was thunder
caused them to stand there in awe and wonder.
Though it was not heard by everyone
it was the Father speaking to His Son.

For our benefit God's great voice was heard
and we should listen to every word.
The time for judgement has come to this world
time for the wrath of God to be unfurled.

The Lord Jesus Christ will be lifted high
upon Calvary's cross where He will die
and all people shall be drawn to Him there
to His outstretched arms and His loving care.

The prince of this world will be driven out
and 'It is finished, ' the victorious shout.
The battle for humankind will be won
by the sacrifice of God's Only Son.

In heaven there'll be thunderous applause
at the coming of peace and end of wars.
Then the Father's name will be glorified
through the life of Jesus, the Crucified.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was hoovering up in Mark's (our lodger) bedroom and caught sight of the title of a book he was reading called 'Some said it thundered'. The first two lines of this poem sprang to mind as I continued with the hoovering. I wrote them down and later that day developed the poem.
