Poem: Come Quickly, Jesus

Northern world, hemisphere,

Something changing, spring is near.

Winter’s old and bony gray,

Will be gone now any day.

Could this be the one…

primavera ultima,

The Spring of springs – when He comes?

Could this be the time…

dia de gracia

The King of kings – Triumphant One!

Coming to free the captive people,

Coming to judge the restless evil…

Could this be His time of return?

April, May, and maybe no June?

Jesus, come, come quickly Lord.

A la tierra tuya, Lord!

Your regenerating hand, upon the land

Upon Your people from Spain

to Japan…

Come quickly, Lord Jesus, please before summer.

We beg as Your bride, and as the Beloved.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“…looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus,who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.”

Titus 2:13-14 (NASB)

  1. Thanks for posting your writing – it is an encouragement to a former writer. I haven’t even attempted to write any poetry since Jesus saved me. I’ve been ‘stuck’, creatively, for almost 5 years!

    Also – it was really good. May the Lord use and enlarge these gifts He’s given you for the edification of the saints, and for His glory.

    • Thank you so much for that encouragement, brother man. As a fellow writer, even a stuck one like yourself, you know how essential it is to know your work is helpful and meaningful to others. ¡Que Dios te bendiga!

    Our longing, our hearts cry… To see our Saviors return! He will right the wrongs and we will be set free! Free from worry, doubt, fear, a critical spirit, pride… No more sin nature!!! Beautifully written in poetic form Justin- and I concur~ even so, Come Lord Jesus!

    Very nicely done, Justin. With all the politicking it seems we Christians have lost sight of the Lord’s return and the sovereignty of God. Thanks.
