Apelles

Set apart, he drew
Others to see
The One who
Approved of him,
Wooed him,
Reproved him,
Supported and sustained
So he was named
As one tested and approved
By Christ
And for him
This knowledge
Would suffice:
To be acknowledged
By Christ

Zion's Future Glory

Sing, barren woman;   Give birth to jubilation   For through your offspring's seed   Will come the longed-for consolation...
