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.
Did the bondman Paul Smile wryly as he ennobled The Roman wounds To "the brand of the Lord Jesus"? (Gal 6: 17) Of Paul the prisoner "with A chain when he enhanced it To an ambassador's insignia, Ironically? (Eph 6: 20) Or the apostle when he honoured Rome's persecuted as "those Of the household of Ceasar"? (Phil 4: 22) No jail could reduce The "prisoner of the Christ Jesus", "The prisoner of the Lord" to A mere prisoner of Rome. (Eph 3:1; Eph 4: 1)
Luke 7 At His feet - Which had borne Him from home comfort - His myrrh-and-tear anointer Learned forgiveness of sins. Luke 8 At His feet - Which carried Him to where need was - The man whom mankind could not tame Sat, clothed and sensible. Luke 10 At His feet - Which trod as the Father directed - Mary chose the good part, Listener. Luke 17 At His feet - Which were bearing Him on to the cross - The cleansed, leprous, Samaritan, grateful man Fell on his face.
There's nothing like the cross; Its rigours cut across The wisdom and the pride In which men would confide. There's nothing like the grave: If Jesus were to save The rigour of its clasp Must hold Him in its grasp. There's nothing like the place Before the Father's face, Beyond all grief and loss Since Christ endured the cross. There's nothing like the throne He'll sit on with His own For whom He faced the grave And rose with power to save.
