the Spirit as Keeper of
the words of the Son
|Views from our holiday cabin or nearby, over a few days|
As He walked a perfect pathway Where sin's power was manifest, And expressed God's grace and mercy So that heaven could attest That the Father was delighted And the Spirit was at rest There was nothing out of keeping With the holiness of God. As He walked the paths of sorrow, Thwarting Satan's power to tempt From the will of God His Father And what malice could attempt Through betrayal, and denial, And injustice, and contempt, There was nothing out of keeping With the holiness of God. But when John was elevated To the mountain to behold The celestial culmination Of God's workmanship unfold In the Lamb's wife - that great city That is formed of purest gold: There was nothing out of keeping With the holiness of God.
The chorus of this I have "borrowed" from a book read recently.
