Holy is the Lamb
Some folks live in a box,
a box of their own making.
They're comfortable there
like the old woman in a shoe.
A box can be great protection
from the weather, from strange things
and occurrences. But life
was not meant to be lived in
a box … man was given the world.
Some folks swear, they know the Lamb of God.
[In times of old, no mere man would utter
the name of God > even if they knew it.]
Yet, now a days [At least since men, gathered,
and sorted, and pared, the writings of the ancients ... ]
people go about shouting the name of the Lamb, Jesus.
[Letting Him out-of-the-box … so to speak,
the box of man’s mind and heart.]
Now God [The one with the capital G]
never did like being called … So be very, careful
when you let Jesus out of the box.
that you don’t put your words in His mouth.
I’d say Jesus has been out of
a box since the stone rolled away from the crypt.
[Lucky for some of us, unlucky for others.]
