The Lord was always in the Father’s favour
Because He had no fleshly predilections;
And since His incense rose in richest savour
This Man has such a place in God’s affections.

We love, and God loves more, Christ’s ”deep perfections”,
Whose worthiness fills heaven with rejoicing;
This Man has such a place in God’s affections
And we hear words of praise that God is voicing,

Because He has secured what God intended
This Man has such a place in God’s affections;
When all God’s work in time and space have ended
All will be cleansed by Him from sin’s infections.

This Man has such a place in God’s affections
That it will be to Him that all shall gather,
Between first and second resurrections,
Before love yields the kingdom to the Father.

  1. This is beautiful! You're a good writer. Why don't you submit some of your work to J. Todd Underhill to read at his Christian poetry podcast at SoundCloud? I've been doing it for a few months now. You will find the podcast here: My poem is "My IV". You can send him your work at My name is Sandi Holland and my SoundCloud username is Lady Glitter.

    J. Todd has what he calls a "euphonious voice." You will enjoy listing to the poems that he reads. Take care and God bless!


I'm glad to hear how this strikes you!
