Today... 'The Ensign Of The People' - Poem by Roy Allen

Ensign of the people for all to see
The One Who comes from the root of Jesse
Now Jew and Gentile come to Him for rest
For in Christ all shall be forever blest

Flying high on the cross of Calvary
Is the Ensign of God for you and me
God loved the world and gave His Only Son
Who through His death the victory has won

From the Root of Jesse the Ensign flies
'Come, enter the gates of heaven it cries.'
The Sovereign Lord beckons me to come
and calls me to my great heavenly home

Praise will be my glorious battle cry
and His great love my soul shall occupy
Called into His banqueting house above
Where His great Banner over me is love

(additional background information is provided in the Poem's story box below)

Isaiah 11: 10
And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

Song of Solomon 2: 4
He has taken me to the banquet hall, and his banner over me is love.

All quotations ©NIV

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.
Today I have thought of You as
'Ensign of the People
