Old Testament Advent Poem No. 11

But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.” He will stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God. And they will live securely, for then his greatness will reach to the ends of the earth.  Micah 5:2, 4 “

Promises, promises.
Human vows –
some come true
and others fade to empty words.

Promises, promises.Xmas '[pems
God’s divine pledges
are fulfilled
beyond measure:

From the small and weak
the Saviour will come.

The Satan crusher
and death slayer
will arrive as an infant.

And the healer and miracle worker
as a man from David’s family.

Promises, Promises.
The king came to a country inn.

The victory was won
on a crude wooden cross.

Promises, promises –

… but the king’s return
is still to come.

There are still promises to see.
