Jesus

From within the mystery of a Trinity
A promised coming to save mankind,
Becoming man through a Virgin’s purity-
A problem for the human mind

For thirty years experiencing obscurity,
Preparing humbly for an oblation
To free the souls of humanity
From the depths of sin and perdition.

Later, preaching and working miracles,
Sowing virtue like springtime seed,
Endorsing the Old Laws ancient articles
And preaching love as the New Laws creed.

During those three years building a body
To be overseen by a man of the sea.
Then, finally rejected as a nobody,
He accepted death on a Calvary tree.

Alongside thieves He slowly died there.
Confirming death by an open heart
Releasing streams of loving care
Which set his followers from others apart.

In another’s tomb they finally laid Him
But within a few days He arose again.
The conqueror of death and destructive sin
Who from within The Trinity now does reign.
