The Big Come Down

The Big Come Down

A King on a Royal Throne
At the bequest of another
Acquiesced to give up
Its glorious golden glow
Fell to His knees
Father, Your plan I will obey

On a fateful, cold winter’s night
Appeared a most unusual sight
A single star hung in a blackened sky
For wise men to search by
To find this King laying in straw
For man, the most holy, precious gift
0f all

Come to save us from ourselves
But to do so among us had to dwell
Live with us, sleep with us
With us eat
Having a most intense promise
To keep
Knowing it could only be done
In horrific pain
He vowed to do it just the same

So history’s biggest Come Down occurred
A Prince to His Father deferred
Left a throne of infinity’s power
So in a short lifetime he might shower
Man with God’s forgiveness at last
Even for Him,
It was a most formidable task

Suffered through our ignorance, brutality
Forced to His knees
Spiked to a wooden cross
Heaven’s Own Son
From our evil we could not run

But this enormous Come Down
Brings to us the most unique sound
Of powerful angels’ voices raised
To this Christ, God’s Only Son
Their splendid, magnificent, holy praise

Pentecostal Fire

Pentecostal Fire

Disciples, huddled
In an upper room
Shaking in their boots
Trying to dispel the gloom
Of your death
Feeling only fear’s failure was left

Until,
A Pentecostal fire
Blazed across their heads
By tongues of living fire
Were they to be led

To stop the shaking, quaking
& rise up
Boldly speak
Those first words of hope
To preach
And loudly proclaim
In many tongues
The life, the power
Of God’s only RISEN SON!

Before

Before


Before all time and space
There was a glorious face
Full of only grace
Love for all He surveyed
Having always the last say
Over everything

But,
His goodness, beauty 
So overwhelming
So always flowing
Over and upward welling
He wished to share it
With others

So the Three got together
Made planets spin
Stars shine
But decided they had rather
Make some someones

A planetary home was made
The darkest of night 
Became a day
Animals, all creatures 
Brought into His sight
Then
His allowed His man to stand upright

He felt such joy
In this glorious child
He had truly let
His imagination run wild
Crowned us at last
With one glorious smile!

Shout for joy
All the earth
At the glory 
Of this first birth
But never fear,
He will remove
For a second time all tears

As once again,
The battle against 
Darkness He will win
Return us,
Back home
If we choose
Remember God will
Never ever lose!!

Easter #2

Easter II

Easter is a time
To remind
Of this earth’s re-birth
A removal of 
Our own sin’s curse

It was an absolute win
Of Jesus the living Christ
As He gave us a chance
At a totally new life
A REBIRTH of His Paradise

As He stepped out
Of a darkened tomb
He was giving us a chance
To come out of 
That darkened womb
Of our own evil rebellion

Easter is as in 
His Holy Book
A telling of that story
Wherein is revealed
God’s greatest glory
His Mercy, Grace & 
Forgiveness

His love for us so great
He was willing to put at stake
His own SON’S LIFE
The greatest sacrifice

So on that history-shattering day
We were eternally saved
Out of His Greatest Love
From forever being thrown
Into infinity’s blackest abyss
