A Christmas Poem or two

Posted by appolus on December 21, 2013

GOD OF ALL GLORY

As we approach the edge of Glory
the universe itself
it simply has an ending
but of You there is no end

As we step into Your presence
The worlds are all consumed
For you are not contained by all that there is
You’re the Revelation and The Genesis

At the edge of all there is
All the worlds, all the skies, the universe
Is to stand on the shore of Your vastness
And gaze upon a sea that never ends

It’s the beginning of all of You
Simply beyond our comprehension
Yet in an effort to be reconciled
You came to us as a helpless child

Hark the herald angels sing
Unto you this day a child is born
He is the essence of all that there is
Born to be betrayed by a single kiss

Yet a Door was opened
That no power can ever shut
It’s the Door that leads to glory
It is the gospel story

And this Door is found
In the valley with the river of tears
The Hope and the Glory of all mankind
And this Door is your destiny to find

Destiny and Glory stepped down
The finite consumed by the infinite
Now mortal can glimpse immortality
By gazing upon the One who set us free

The Door, the Door, the Door to our heart
Is open and its Glory shines forth
Step through this Door step onto the shore
Of the Sea that goes on forevermore.

THE BABE

Our Lord He came from the glories above
He came to earth with a heart full of love
And choirs of heavenly angels sang
As the bells of upper Hades rang

Oh joyous night Oh Christ divine
A star in heaven, a heavenly sign
For Christ the Lord is born today
He came to show the world the way

He came to set the prisoners free
He came that every eye might see
A light at the end of a tunnel deep
A glorious harvest ready to reap

Consider this babe so innocent and pure
He has come to make your salvation sure
Lift up this child in your heart tonight
Lift up your eyes to a glorious sight

Behold your King is born today
Fall to your knees,worship and pray
For unto you a child is born
Behold the darkness gives way to dawn

One Response to “A Christmas Poem or two”

  1. Susanne Schuberth (Germany) said

    THE LORD

    “Just wait upon me” says the Lord
    Who has the power and the sword
    To judge the nations all the same
    Since they believed not in His name

    The King was born like all of us
    Was wrapped in diapers, helpless thus
    A child, so small and yet so pure
    Who thought He knew what He’d endure?

    He was a man and it is known
    God left His glory on His own
    He lived a life of sacrifice
    With truth He made no compromise

    Whenever He met men on earth
    He made them wonder at His birth
    Since though He was the Son of Man
    His words and signs revealed God’s plan

    To save the world through cruel death
    And love it till His final breath
    Forgiveness is for all of these
    Who doubt and fear, and bow their knees

    You can be sure because of Him
    Who promised to give light to dim
    That God will give new birth to you
    And prove that Christmas, it is true

    Your spirit will be newly born
    For you, He suffered pain and thorn
    And He won’t cease to pray for you
    Until all sadness will be through

    At times, we marvel at His way
    Leading the eyes in jars of clay
    To look ahead, not left nor right
    Until we see His glory’s light

    Beloved child, you can be sure
    All of His pain He did endure
    It was for you, you are His dove
    You are His babe, you are His love
