God’s Glory – a poem

Based on Exodus 33:18-19, Proverbs 19:11, John 17:1

"Please show me your glory” old Moses did cry
God said “hide your face while my goodness pass by”

“The right to show mercy is what I proclaim;
compassion and love are the heart of my name”

“And what is man’s glory?” we asked of the King
The wisdom of Solomon said this is that thing -

“To not count offence but to cover the sin
of one who does harm you is where you begin”

“And where is your glory?” we asked of the Son
“May we see your Might and your Power be done?”

“My glory is Calvary, surrendered to die,
Declaring the Father as servant on high"

True glory is faithful forgiveness and love,
The merciful heart of our Father above.

And so, as a child of your Father in Heaven,
Forgive not just 7 times but 70 times 7.
