A Companion of Jesus

Children of the King.

 

Twisted. Bent.
Bowed and broken.
Battered. Marred.
Forgotten. Forsaken.

Lost and Lonely.
Lewd and Loud.
Loveless. Lifeless.
Lame and Lowly.

These the children of the King!

Hungry. Naked.
Sick. Imprisoned.
Thirsting..thirsty..
Is my Jesus.

See.. his eyes..all compassion.
Not condoning nor condemning.
Never judging. All embracing.
Quieting us with his love.

Broken. Beaten.
Bleeding. Bound.
Wanting. Waiting
In wounded love….the children’s King is crucified.

Twisted. Bent.
Bowed and broken.
Battered. Marred.
Forgotten. Forsaken.

Forged in the furnace
Love…Forgiving.
Buried in earth’s dark tomb,
fallen seed of awesome grace!

Twisted. Bent.
Bowed and broken.
Battered. Marred.
Forgotten. Forsaken.

Morning’s Sun cuts through the stone of death.
Seed once fallen, now blooms in flower
Incense arising, its scent proclaims the dawning of a new day.
Beauty now for ashes given.

These the children of the King!

Twisted. Bent.
Bowed and broken.
Battered. Marred.
Forgotten. Forsaken. – Never again!

Hallelujah! Children of the King!
