497. He walks among the golden lamps

Author: Timothy Dudley-Smith

He walks among the golden lamps
on feet like burnished bronze;
his hair as snows of winter white,
his eyes with fire aflame, and bright
his glorious robe of seamless light
surpassing Solomon’s.

2. And in his hand the seven stars
and from his mouth a sword;
his voice the thunder of the seas;
all creatures bow to his decrees
who holds the everlasting keys
and reigns as sovereign Lord.

3. More radiant than the sun at noon,
who was, and is to be:
who was, from everlasting days;
who lives, the Lord of all our ways;
to him be majesty and praise
for all eternity.
