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 ponder with wonder The steps of the Saviour Admiring the grace of The steps that He trod; All led to Golgotha Where "Christ ... has once suffered ... The just for the unjust, To bring us to God". He came from the glory To bring us to glory, To meet our condition And spread grace abroad, We sing in God's presence "For Christ ... has once suffered ... The just for the unjust, To bring us to God".
When seeing Jesus in His dignity Where His true faithfulness has been displayed "Are not thine eyes upon fidelity"? Feeling the buffets of adversity What noble faithfulness Stephen displayed When seeing Jesus in His dignity. As you behold amid calamity The Just One both forsaken and betrayed Are not thine eyes upon fidelity? See Stephen in his grace and purity Face all man's hatred and be undismayed When seeing Jesus in His dignity. Seeing God's people's amiability As walking in the path that Christ has made "Are not thine eyes upon fidelity"? Proclaim that grace that touched our depravity And faithful saints need never be afraid When seeing Jesus in His dignity. Are not thine eyes upon fidelity?
See Jeremiah 5: 3: "Jehovah, are not thine eyes upon fidelity". (JND Translation, which I usually use.)
Judges 4 Sisera, finding flight expedient, Reached Jael, and so fled the battles's clamour; She gave him milk; he slept within the tent: She took the tent-pin and the workman's hammer. She smote his temple - for God had decreed His death would not enhance a warrior's glamour. Her hands were practised for the time of need.
