Today... 'The King of Glory'


You ask me, “Who is this king of Glory? ”
So I will tell you His wondrous story.
He’s The Lord Jesus Christ the Crucified
The Son of God Who came to earth and died.

The Lord God, The Almighty is His name
Eternal and unchangeably the same.
Lord of lords, mighty in battle is He
Conquering death in splendid victory.

So be lifted up you ancient doors
as He enters heaven to great applause.
Ascending to The Ancient of Days
to receive honour and glory and praise.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Psalms 24: 7-10
Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is he, this King of glory? The LORD Almighty— he is the King of glory. Selah

All quotations ©NIV

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting a glorious
aspect of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
“The King of Glory”

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
