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.
We hail Thee, the Anointed, Whose place thy God appointed That all this world's disjointed Relations might be whole; Thy horn shall be exalted, Thy praise shall not be halted, And songs not to be faulted Rise from each ransomed soul.
The first boy said that God made everything, The sun and stars ... and how we may rejoice Before the God of heavenly hosts, and sing Since we can answer to their speechless voice. But we can have a deeper link with God Since He did something far more marvellous To cause our souls to sound His praise abroad, For, as the boy continued, God made us.
His friend moved on to the particular And showed that no creation is beneath The thought of God , by whom all beings are, Because, he answered, "Yes, and God made teeth".
And one should thank this Maker when one eats a Meal, for the third boy added, "God made pizza".
The cross of Christ, on which He bore The sins of all who own His claim, Displays that God, for evermore, Has finished with the man of shame And shows the fulness of God's grace Which has secured our heavenly place.
The blood of Jesus Christ, God's Son, Propitiation for all sin, Is witness that the work is done Which makes us free to come within The presence of a holy God To know His love; to give Him laud.
The water from His smitten side Is witness that His work's complete; And in each mind that work applied Ensures for us this world's defeat, For we may be, while here below, Made clean, by virtue of that flow.
