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.
O Lord, with hearts adoring, We travel back to see Where love divine, unmeasured, Expressed itself in Thee.
That dark and lonely valley, O'er which death's shadow fell; The cross, where, ranged against Thee, Stood all the powers of hell.
Oh, what a shroud of darkness O'er all the scene was thrown; Whilst Thou, the Light effulgent, Dwelt in the grave, alone!
But bright indeed the dawning Of resurrection's day - Death's power for ever broken, Sin's thraldom done away.
Now linked with Thee for ever, In risen life we stand; And, loved by Thee, we enter E'en now the heavenly land. Beneath Thy waving banner, We sit, secure and free; And view, with joy and wonder, Love's triumph, Lord, in Thee!
