This Same Jesus

by Emmanuel G G Yamba

The only image of the Father
Reversing to the time of old
Play the role of the word
Bringing light in the world

Carry on the Father’s duty
As he so pleases 
Acting with pity
Recompensing iniquities 

Then he came as a lover
Opening arms to sinners
Frowning face to their ways
And purging them with hyssop 

Known as the mediator 
Building the broken bridge
To give man access
To God the Father

As we foreshadow 
He’s seated in the judgement seat
Disappeared from the counsel table
Pleading guilty the deaf ear

Rendering sin's wages
To feet that trample grace
And ignore the call at the cross
Condemning them to chains

Emmanuel G G Yamba is an emerging Christian poet and also an undergraduate student at the University Of Liberia.
