Before the Throne

If I could stand before the throne
Turn an ear to His trumpet blown
Blinded by His countenance bright
Finding in His majestic Light I’m fully known

Amazed by lovely seraphim
And flying, singing cherubim
Though they themselves are quite sublime
Each spends every moment of time worshipping Him

By contrast my paltry worship
Is hindered by my ego trip
May a vision of God’s throne room
Cause praise like a sweet perfume rise from my lips

Lord, make me see Your majesty
So I’ll worship, You are worthy
Great Creator, Lamb who was slain
Forever and ever You reign, You are holy

Holy, holy, holy are You
You are righteous, that much is true
Remind me daily of Your grace
Help me seek Your beautiful face each day anew

Journey of Lent – A Poem

Lord of all creation
wandered in the wilderness
40 days of hunger and temptation

Eternal life set aside
for just a time so that it might
be ever available to His beloved

Name above all names
sacrificed for you, for me
His very life to set us forever free

Throne of grace
once again His proper place
where justice and mercy reign
