I wrote this back in late (rather late) June, but I never dug this out until now. Wrote this during a message my pastor was preaching from Revelation one; so hope you enjoy it!

 

( @Emily Waldorf, this is the poem I wrote that you wanted to read. I am so, so, so, sooooooooooo (and I mean extremely sooooooo) sorry that I procrastinated in getting it out and letting you read it!! I finally got it out today, and I meant to share it earlier but didn't get the time to. That's on me for procrastinating; so please forgive me for doing that!!! It's a bad habit I'm trying to work on with God's help.)

 

The Son of man, in candlestick amidst,

His garment down at foot, His girdle round His breast.

His hair white as wool, white as snow,

Pure to all who about Him know.

 

His eyes were as a flame of fire,

Raging at sight of witch and liar.

His feet as fine brass, newly burned from the furnace;

His voice booming over waters, and His children heard in earnest.

 

His right hand held the seven stars; from His mouth came a twoedged sword

Sharp enough to slaughter those who despised the Lord.

His countenance as the sun that shineth greatly in His strength,

Brilliantly dazzling in glory without length.

 

When I saw, I fell before Him,

Strength abating from limb to limb.

But He laid His right hand upon me,

As His strange everlasting made me free.

 

"Fear not, I am the first and the last:

Through me, theses things shall come to pass.

I am He that liveth, and was dead:

For God let me die in the sinner's stead.

 

"And, behold, I am alive for evermore;

And soon you will join Me with riches in store.

Write the things which thou hast seen,

Through all this, on Me you must lean.

 

"For the days will grow darker, and goodness will wane;

But always remember that I remain the same

As Alpha and Omega, the first and the last.

And together, we will rejoice when all has come to pass."

Quite nice little poem, and about one of my favorite subjects. You catch the imagery and reveal how all of it changes you, and makes you feel that you are there with John. Even further you deliver how this scene was 'actually' written about you. You want to make it real and have appeal while it impresses you (us). I like the view you are upholding. Done well.

Praise God! Glad you enjoyed it. 🙂

You have captured the essence of the scripture in these four lines.

I like this verse best!

 

This is a beautiful poem! You maybe know that i love rhymed poetry, so I obviously like this one. 🙂 You weaved the passage together so well into poetry--something that's very difficult to do. Great job, Ky! It was worth the wait. (And don't worry about it!)
