Glorious presence

I
The works of God are an exclamation of His awesome glory
Glory that is made evident in greater dimensional expression
When light of life that redeems, gave man rebirth
In precious blood of caring Lamb of God
Come to shepherd home obedient sheep of his pasture,
Lamb of God who in shepherding his flock protect them from ravaging beasts
Beasts defanged in one swoop of light cleaving a path into darkness
Light of life before which scrolling darkness reveals God's manifest grace
That life’s giver in giving his life has in dying brought life to those living in darkness
In resurrection glory He indemnified eternal life as a given for obedient faithful
That sinful nature of man in receiving salvation by grace is reborn into glorious acclamation of Heaven's task fulfilled through Messianic grace amongst men -

II
God has fulfilled His promise to return to Man
At appointed time a way back to Himself He enabled
When rusted hinges of ancient gates cracked and burst asunder,
When sharp strands of piercing light
Broke through ancient accretions’
Of man's dismal failure, his long descent into limbo,
At first sight of salvation’s presence
Awakened souls long in expectation amassed
Fluttering like jaded butterflies to light of hope
Gathering to receive light of life
Around saviour long expected-

III
Wonder of creation’s might in sublime expression
Gentle Lamb of God almighty
Before whom powers without substance crumble
Grace in power beyond compare
Reaching healing hands to dark pits of human despair
Touching humanity in need of virtue
These groaning masses long huddled in despair
Taking their fist glimpse of glorious presence
In seeing, breathing relief long promised, fulfilled -
IV
Humanity giving vent to first cry of joy,
Since agonising groan of Adam’s anguishing groans
Their joy, resounding song, of
Praises of thanksgiving sustained in refrain
Sung by mankind for eternity from eternity,
Behold these dead hearts long lost
Quickened to life in very presence of life’s source
He, the Christ who stood with mighty, loving Father
Bringing into being things that hitherto were not,
Creation’s Lord has come to redeem His own
These lost souls hitherto sunk in deepest darkness
Of deception’s gruelling toil of meaningless ends,
Groaning under severest of oppression –

V
Lost, fragile humanity
Whose wails darkens earth
Have struck a new chord of joy
In glorious presence of Heaven’s magnificence
When Jesus, lover of men came to redeem
Lost, dishevelled and beseeching sheep,
Life’s light, shining, scrolls away darkness’ wearisome deception
As rusted voices long silent found first song of creation
Giving praise in light of redemption’s Lord;
‘Jehovah be praised! Hallelujah! Hosanna!’
