DO YOU KNOW GOD

DO YOU KNOW GOD?

Do you know God?
Do you really know God?
Do you know the Light
That shines brighter than the sun?
Do you know the voice of many waters
Or the eyes of fiery fire?

Have you seen the lightning
The voices of worship and thunder?
Did you see the seven lamps;
All, the seven-fold Spirit of God?
Did you notice the twenty four elders,
With gold crowns on their heads,
Sitting on twenty four thrones round
The throne of Love?

Hark, the worship of the four living beasts
Saying ‘Holy, holy is the Lord
God Almighty, who was
Is and is to come’
See the worship of the twenty four
Falling down and casting crowns
All praising the worthy Lamb of God.

See the Lamb that sits on the throne
As of jasper and carnelian
See the emerald rainbow round the throne
See the crystal clear sea of glass
Beneath the worthy feet of the Lamb
Watch as the double edged sword comes from His mouth
See the glory of the Word.
See the Lamb in form of flesh
See the Lamb tempted by men
See this Lamb scorned and rejected
By the cursed, condemned and doomed.

See God’s Lamb scourged to the bone
See His flesh stick to the whips
See the mockery of the crown of thorns
See the pain and the Blood He dripped
See Him carrying a tree in this condition
See Him fall; vulnerable to pain.

Oh God’s Lamb left at man’s mercy
See Him stripped of every cloth
See Him nailed through to the Cross
See Him hanging naked on the Cross
See men spit and scoff at Him
See God’s Lamb in need of water
See Him given vinegar with a sponge.

See the Father turn away from His begotten
See the Son cry, more helpless than a babe
See God fall into the hands of death
See His body wrapped like the corpse of man
See God laid in the tomb of a man
Dead for three days and alive on the third day.

What’s the union between these two
The King on the throne and a dead man in a tomb?
What’s the closeness between these two
The glory of Heaven and the darkness of hell?
But the King who sits on the throne
Became the dead man in the tomb
And the eternal King of glory
Went to the very depths of hell
Not on a tour or show off
But an expression of His eternal love for us.

So again I ask; do you know God?
Do you really know Love?
Do you know the Love
That shines brighter than the sun?
Do you know the Man of many wonders
Or the Lamb that died on the Cross?
