Redemption subsists in the worth of the Person
Who holds the first place in the Father’s affection,
The Son of His love, who is given the kingdom
For which we are fit through His worth and perfection.

Redemption is known through the blood of the Saviour
Through which, by God’s grace, we are brought into favour;
Christ satisfied God in the work of atonement
While God’s heart rejoiced in His charm and His savour.

We wait for adoption, the body’s redemption,
And with us is waiting the whole of creation
Till Christ is acclaimed on the throne of his kingdom
And all is transformed at that great liberation.


  1. And all is transformed at that great liberation. Indeed!

    Great truth, David

    Thanks for visiting my pencil.

  2. Hi David, thank you for your visit to my blog and this enlightening post. Blessings.

  3. This is a fantastic poem! And it gets better every time I read it. The anapest rhythm is almost perfect, even if every line starts iambic (it is very hard to start lines with anapests – it is in Norwegian too). And the three verses points out the difference between faith, hope and love shown us (by the focus on being, doing, and becoming respectively). And it is Christian! Congratulations!


I'm glad to hear how this strikes you!
