Angel of the Lord
by night you
called me without warning.
“Do not be afraid,” you said.
Even so, I shuddered
fearful and ashamed as you
granted me a message
“Holy, holy, holy,” you sang.
I heard you that lonely night
“Just as I am?” I AM. “Let me
keep this night forever
locked in my memory,” I thought.
Miraculous, our Messiah has arrived. We are
night watchers near the City of David
only Jehovah saw value in us.
Patiently, we kept waiting
quietly, the angel came; a brilliant star
revealed the message to
shepherds! The sheep barely stirred,
Tonight, the sky was falling, spinning,
until the Angel spoke. Divine
visitations are unexpected. I’ve been
waiting for the One called
X is for the newborn Christ. Oh, come, Emmanuel.
YHWH. El Shaddi. Come quickly, gentle
