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.
Methinks I see with what a busy haste Zaccheus climbed the tree. But, O how fast How full of speed, canst thou imagine (when Our Saviour called) he powdered down again! He ne’er made trial if the boughs were sound, Or rotten; nor how far 'twas to the ground. There was no danger feared. At such a call He’ll venture nothing, that dare fear a fall. Needs must he down, by such a spirit driven; Nor could he fall, unless he fell to Heaven. Down came Zaccheus, ravished from the tree; Bird that was shot, ne’er dropped so quick as he.
Oh who’s the One who’s worthy to regard the book? The Lion of the tribe of Judah! Oh who’s the blessed One to whom His
people look? The Lion of the tribe of Judah! Oh who is it that’s standing as a lamb
once slain The Lion of the tribe of Judah! Oh who has overcome sin’s power and
lives again? The Lion of the tribe of Judah! Oh who is it the angels and the saints
acclaim? The Lion of the tribe of Judah! Oh who is it who gained Himself a
glorious Name? The Lion of the tribe of Judah!
Try adapting "There isn't any room for strangers" for this!
