CHRIST COMMANDER (12th card)
Before the fall of satanic force,
When Lucifer fell from realms of right,
Christ was totally in charge, of course,
The Commander of pre-sunshine light.
When Eden and its surroundings greened,
Immediately, to the Master’s phrase.
From the Scriptures, it is easily gleaned,
Christ was there in His Creative days.
When Christ, the Commoner, graced the stall,
The sheep, nor their shepherds understood,
That the coming of this newborn, small,
Would be to all humanities good.
Many years there lived and labored hard,
The Carpenter of Nazareth town.
Learned the trade without quota or card,
Before He laid all the mallets down.
Christ the Compassionate, He became;
Easing the ill ones, touching the blind,
Going where mortals were halt or lame,
Leaving a trail of walkers behind.
Sinful men rejected His teaching.
They schemed, and connived and even lied.
Pilate’s water could do no bleaching,
When Jesus died: Christ the Crucified.
The grave was guarded. The stone? immense.
Even the Roman seal was in place.
Then Christ, the Conqueror, came from hence
Vanquishing death, when met face to face.
He came, He left, He will soon appear,
Forever, to be in fullest charge!
Christ the Commander, without a fear,
Ruling then the universe at large.
Commander, Creator, Commoner,
Carpenter, Compassionate, all five.
Crucified, and then death’s Conqueror,
Without which there’d be no hope alive.
Commander again as once before;
The difference? The life He lived with man.
That Gift man commemorates of yore.
Praise Him, Laud Him, for this wondrous plan.
