THE SON OF DAVID
Blind Bartimeus while sitting by the wayside
Loudly implored the Lord, the Son of David,
To give him sight, the blessing He was craving:
When he was healed children began proclaiming
The Son of David who came as King and Saviour.
The Pharisees averse to their displacement
Rejected Him for them and for the nation.
But God had promised that there would be no failure
Of David’s throne - so Jesus is awaiting
The time when Israel will gain salvation;
Meanwhile we Gentiles who have no rights by nature
Acquire our blessing through Israel’s betrayal.
