A Timely Poem

I wrote this poem for a Faithwriter Challenge for the topic "Time." I like to think about time and eternity. It baffles my mind and fills me with the wonder of God's greatness and immensity.


“In the beginning…” 
God promised a Savior,
To redeem this sinful world,
From its wicked behavior.

“All nations shall be blessed…”
Through the seed of Abraham,
The Messiah will someday come,
It was God’s perfect plan.

Almighty God, “I AM”
Did set His people free,
His angel of Death passed over,
He separated the sea.

“Be strong, and of good courage!”
The cry rang out that day.
“This is the land God promised you;
Trust in His strength; obey.”

“Thy throne shall be forever,”
To King David, it was said.
An everlasting kingdom,
In peaceful pastures led.

“Bethelehem, Ephratah,
Out of thee shall come…”
This simple little village
Would bring the Promised One.

“And the days were accomplished…”
The time was drawing near,
Son of Man and Son of God
Heavenly hosts prepared to cheer.

“Unto you is born this day..”
The choir of angels sang,
“Glory to the newborn King!”
The rafters of heaven rang.

“A light to lighten the Gentiles,
A glory to Israel.”
The spotless Lamb of God, 
His wondrous plan revealed.

“Today thou shalt be in Paradise,”
“It is finished!” he cried.
They knew not what they did,
The Messiah was crucified.

“That hour knoweth no man”
When the trumpet will sound.
A triumphant call to His own,
In whose heart, He is found.

“The Alpha and Omega,
The beginning and the end.”
Our King, our Lord, our Savior,
To Thee our knees we bend.
