These are some of the attempts at verse that I have made over the years. I trust that they are to the glory of the Lord Jesus - and that putting them here is to His glory too.
I have now posted most that I have written at least once but continue in case a new audience finds new blessing. Occasionally I throw in some other verse.
Comment are welcome.
If the lamb's blood around the door Was answer to immediate need God strengthened for what lay before: They had the lamb on which to deed. Christ has not only set me free But been the food to nourish me.
God overwhelmed the Egyptians first So that the victory was complete Then satisfied His people's thirst By water wood He showed made sweet. Because Christ died to make me free "Christ" sweetens what refreshes me.
Since the brass serpent held their gaze Though serpent-bitten they could live And reach soon, in Jehovah's ways, The well He promised He would give. Sin in the flesh has been condemned; The Spirit's grace has been unstemmed.
The Jordan's flooding waters found A force that they could not withstand, And once they crossed it on dry ground They ate the old corn of the land. Christ and His cross have made me whole, And Christ in glory feeds my soul.
