This is a poem from my Anthology entitled LIGHT TO THE WORLD. It was written in February 1960. It is not an indication of my religious persuasion.

GIVE ME THAT CHRIST


Give me that Christ, the Jesus One,
Who came down as a little child,
And walked amongst the common man;
Unto Him all souls reconcile.

Give me that Christ, a loving Friend,
Who showed wonders of His Father,
Who, all things through Him we commend,
To the only true Creator.

Give me that Christ, the One rejected,
The Blessed One they crucified,
Yes, that one whom they exalted;
In Him saints will be glorified.

Give me that Christ, Lord of the Cross,
The One who has shown God's glory,
Who's gone to see a place for us;
That Christ, the Lamb of Calvary.

Give me that Christ, come suddenly,
Who'll come as a 'thief in the night',
Who'll come in power and glory,
To be seen by 'good and bad' sight,

Give me that Christ, to catch up in air,
I love His coming to Earth 'gain,
I'll be with Him ever down here;
He will as Lord over us regain.
