MY IVORY TOWER

Lion from the tribe of Judah,

Roars!  The sound reverberates

“It is finished!”  From the cross

Cries Christ!  The only candidate!

.

.

Crying still triumphantly the sound

Splits sky and earth apart!

Forever more dividing both the

Saint and sinner from the start.

.

.

Divided as in Noah’s time

Scoffing sinner’s hurled rebuffs,

Laughing, jeering, flagrant gestures,

God roared back then, “It is enough!”

.

.

Once again His cry now splitting

Tribes through languages devised

Tower of Babel separating

Those who tried to reach the skies!

.

.

From each other language barriers

Understanding out of reach

Confusion separating families

Long beyond each other’s reach!

.

.

God will roar again!  I know it!

Saint from sinner separate!

“Sheep from goats” you cannot doubt it

Believe!  Leaving no debate!

.

.

Cry of God at least near strangled

Heart is broken looking down,

Sees sick sinners, as with Noah,

Meriting His angry frown!

.

.

Cry now angry, terrible

While his tears a waterfall.

God cannot force man’s repenting!

Will not make man on Him call!

.

.

The cross a failure to so many?

God now turns His head and cries!

Mankind soon will chose direction

Jesus now looks down and dies!

.

.

Was this cross of Christ a failure?

No!  It reconciles me now!

Remorsefully I cry repenting!

Loving Him!  I humbly bow!

.

.

Many more repent!  Accept Him!

Many more receive His grace!

Matchless grace rejoice in mercy!

Soon to look upon His face!

.

.

Tragedy!  Now those forgotten

Cringing in satanic power.

How can saint excuse himself

Sitting in his ivory tower?

.
