The Scrolls Rolled Out from Heaven:
Like Lightning Striking from the East
By Erik Nelson
Make straight a way for the Lord,
God’s news or double-edged sword,
From underground and from the sky,
Whose shoes I’m not fit to untie.
From Heaven down to Earth He came,
Assumed even a human name.
From out of dry ground came a root;
He grew up like a tender shoot.
The yoke He bore of all our shame,
Though found in Him was no deceit.
From ground as dry as dust He came,
So righteousness and peace could meet.
Foxes have holes, and birds have nests,
But Christ had nowhere He could rest,
Longsuffering the curse of Cain,
Though without blemish, blot or stain.
Just as John of Patmos said,
Babylon will soon be dead,
But not a jot shall pass away
Of what Christ taught and had to say.
The mountain of Carmel will fall
And the blossoms of Lebanon fade,
But God’s Word will still stand up tall,
Like a tree giving travelers shade.
Amidst the brightly burning wicks
Of seven golden candlesticks,
I saw the First and the Last stand,
Holding seven stars in hand;
I fell at His feet as though dead,
Told to repeat what He said.
My sisters and my brethren,
I saw New Earth and Heaven
And say “Godspeed” to who swallows
What you now read and what follows.
