2015.02.02: Lord of the temple

And the lord whom you seek will come suddenly to his temple; The messenger of the covenant whom you desire — see, he is coming! says the LORD of hosts. Mal 3:1

as Anna and Simeon waited
in the Temple for your coming
the presentation of the Redeemer
the Keeper of the Covenant
so i wait in my temple
small and imperfect as it may be
a visitation from my Savior
not because of my merit
but because of your grace

as Simeon held the babe high
your glory shines brightly
“a light for revelation to the Gentiles”
Justice in the form of Mercy
Truth in the guise of Love
my heart leapt with joy
and the rivers run freely
