Today... 'The Branch Of Righteousness' - Poem by Roy Allen
Behold the days are now coming says the Lord
When a King will reign according to my word.
From David a Branch of Righteousness has come
the forerunner of the heavenly kingdom.
David's greater Son and God's Belovèd One:
Jesus the Messiah has His reign begun
He came to us from heaven by virgin birth
to bring judgment and righteousness to earth.

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting an aspect
of Your Divine Nature.
