Old Testament Advent Poem No. 3

The Lion and the Sceptre Genesis 49:10

From father to son,
and father to son,
the king rules.

Long live the King!

With Sceptre,
the staff of authority
the honour continues
from regal generation
to regal generation.

The kingdom rises
and falls.

God’s promise
persists.

But we wait,
and wait
for the ultimate king.
The king!
The Lion will rule with
the wand of real power
over all nations
for eternity.
