Third of a Trilogy

Foreknown, the sorry plight

of worlds affected by the fall,

master-plan unfolds for restoration.

Oracle speaks prophetically,

of woman’s seed, of chosen race,

of royal line, of messianic hope

awakening anticipation of

brand new dispensation

~~~

And right on cue, fulness of time

the only-begotten One

arrives, as if on centre-stage

spotlighted, heralded by

same angelic choristers that

celebrated creation’s dawn

announcing with clear voices –

To you a Saviour born

~~~

The Lion-Lamb, a Second Man

tabernacles with humanity

God in flesh through Virgin Birth

sharing woe, feeling pain – then

life laid down and full atonement made.

Bruising serpent’s head; binding man’s strong foe;

bursting prison gates; breaking captives free;

birthing glorious redemption
