The Name

a teaching rhyme
by JD Collier

The Father,
Creator,
All Sovereign,
Supreme,
Transcendent,
Exalted,
All Wise–
Holy,
Almighty,
His Excellency,
In Him all Divinity lies–
The Son,
The Christ,
Immanuel,
The Truth,
The Lamb that was Slain–
The Word,
The Life,
The Light of Men,
The King who forever will reign–
The Spirit,
The Promise,
The Paraclete,
The Oil of Gladness and Grace–
The Comforter,
Spirit of Counsel and Might,
The Dove of Heaven’s embrace–
The Father,
The Son,
The Holy Ghost,
The fountain,
The spring,
The flow–
Choosing,
Redeeming,
Atonement for man,
The seal of the heart and the soul–
Our God
Incomprehensible;
Our loftiess
Speculation. . .
Only in reverence
Speak The Name
And joy in the God of Salvation.
