His majesty


His majesty                                   

Once an infidel, Your love evoked fidelity.
I’m faithful now, not to God, but to a human being

Who walked the path Jesus walked,
all the way to Golgotha.
But more intimate than that --

faithful to the One Who poured the wine
into my cup;
Who rested His hand on my shoulder;

Who gestured tenderly, “You belong to Me.”
I can’t reach beyond that form, that face and personality.

It’s self-serving and calculated -- I want to be You;
filled with Your Essence until nothing else remains.

O child of God, the Avatar is made of flesh and blood;
therein lies His majesty.                              
                                         (from A Jewel in the Dust)
