Imagine!

Imagine

Throne, glistening,
Unapproachable
Glory, brilliant light,
Beauty, colors of infinity

Sitting in Your place
Love, forgiveness
implanted on your face
desperate need at your feet

screaming out your name
transcendent above
this noise, chaos,
darkness, ignorant rebellion

a universe held within
your hand
no longer wishing to
follow your commands

One spirit asks,
You would leave all
This!
Remember their past

We adore you, Lord
Do not leave
We will do anything
Your sovereign will to please

But, this perpetual glory
Cannot be restrained.
I cannot ignore their grief
Their sorrow or their pain

The multitudes acquiesce
And bow
Ready to submit their wills
Left only to guess

So He lays aside, removes
A crown
Glistening, reflecting each
Star, lights which abound

Only in this eternity of
Ecstasy, bliss,
Adoration, worship.
Giving His Father one last
Kiss

One last touch of a
Father’s hand
As they prepare to face the
Agony of this plan

Silence falls, all heaven
Stops
Wondering, hoping
As He bends to drop
Below.

So, with shepherds, beasts
Within a barn’s dirty stall
A Savior releases glory
taking up the saving,
redeeming His creation
from its fall.
