Lantern and Lamb

He was both the lantern and the lamb

He was the light

Clothed in a dusty frame

That still shone brightly

In spite of the darkness surrounding him.

He was both the lantern and the lamb.

The earth could feel it

Something unearthly was born

The shepherds knew it and fell to the ground

In worship of their Great Shepherd.

 

 

He was both the lantern and the lamb

Though spotless and innocent

He obediently went to the place of slaughter

While serenaded by mockery and laughter

He still shone the path to the Father.

 

 

He was both the lantern and the lamb

Men could not fathom it

Logic could not explain it

How a dusty lantern shone brightly

When its blood, they had drained on the cross.

 

 

He was both the lantern and lamb

The devil was checkmated

In a game of chess

Where he thought he had captured the king

If he only knew, that was the King of kings.

 

 

Nature was perplexed

It spat out this divinity that did not belong to its dustiness

The light in the darkness, the lamb amongst wolves

Indeed, he was both the lantern and the lamb

And for your sake, He came to earth.
