Son of Judah

My tale is from the time of Rome
Away across the sea
The tale of one called Jesus Christ
From distant Galilee

He placed Himself at God's command
Accepting all His will
Accomplishing the work of God
From Tyre to Olive's hill

He walked the streets and sailed the seas
He healed the blind and lame
Since Jesus came and changed the world
It's never been the same

He hung upon a cross of wood
To save from Adam's fate
He lived and worked among the poor
And died in low estate

He turned the world right upside-down
With nothing but His love
And now He watches us with care
From heaven's court above

    Wow, Isaiah, this is truly wonderful! You are such an awesome story-telling poet. In response to your comment, I would be interested to hear about your homeschooling experiences sometime. I bet we have read many of the same books even though we had such different educational experiences. I also bet you opted to use your mind over watching TV - like the Greeks :)
