New Songs on Jesus! More Songs on Jesus!

Friends, I think we need to write more songs about Jesus Christ here in the Intermountain West.  Would you agree?

After spending time in Hebrews 1:1-4 this weekend, I have been jotting down all kinds of words.  Here are some thoughts that I penned yesterday (and of course, I had to throw in an Idahoan simile).

Jesus, Light of Light
 
O Jesus Christ, our God and King,
        We worship You, man’s clear Word.
May Your voice fly and richly ring,
        Like a mountain bluebird.
 
We bow our knee to Heir of all.
        You create age to age,
And uphold beyond sin and fall,
        Unfazed by heathen rage.
 
O Light of sun, all glory pure,
        Full Representation,
To see You is to see Father–
        All glorious One.
I really like what two men wrote long ago.
Athanasius:
Who is so void of understanding as to doubt concerning the eternal being of the Son? for where has one seen light without effulgence?
Theophylact:
The Sun is never seen without effulgence, nor the Father without the Son.
I need to write a fourth verse for the Christ Who purges sin and Who sits in exaltion, exerting His equality with the Father.
desiring to behold His glory,
et
