At DVerse today, Bjorn wants us all to write sonnets. I enjoy sonnets and wrote this one shortly before Christmas.
God came to us, and shared our sad estate,
Although glory supreme was His true right,
To live and die and rise, to confound fate,
To save His people from the darkest night:
For this He came, in time He intervened,
That all might be adopted as God’s sons,
Through Jesus’ blood all faithful souls are cleaned
And need not fear, for Father to them runs.
It matters not what happened in the past,
But only what the soul would wish today,
God wants to give to all a life that lasts,
And life on Earth in which we ever pray.
Now look upon the Lord in manger laid:
God-is-with-us, and He has always stayed.
