The Gift I Gave Gloria

March 7, 2008

My wife Kelly and I had gone shopping, searching for the perfect gift to bless our friends with, and after quite a long time of weighing our options, we chose and went to see them. We came bearing flowers. This is more Kelly’s love language than mine, and so I wanted to give out of the treasure of my own heart. My love language is poetry, so, I wrote baby Dae a song:

“O Glorious Dae!”

O Glorious Night! O Glorious Night!
The dew on the grass will be quite a sight
When the sun in the morning comes to such a height,
Making known to all the Father’s delight!
O Glorious Morn! O Glorious Morn!
The stars are hidden in the sky they adorn!
Angels are rejoicing with trumpet and horn:
“Glorious Beloved last night was born!”
O Glorious Day! O Glorious Day!
The sun is ashamed because your parents pray!
Know they love you, hear them always say:
“Love the Lord Jesus, O Gloria Dae!”
O Glorious Eve! O Glorious Eve!
The moon in the heavens could never achieve
The radiance of the joy that your parents did receive:
“He gives what we ask when with asking we believe!”
O Glorious One! O Glorious One!
All creation groans – we have come undone!
Forsaking all, to You alone we run:
“We give You Gloria as You gave us Your Son!”

    Ben, your poems are superb. They always bring glory to Jesus. We read this poem to little Gloria. It’s our favorite poem you’ve ever shared with us– best part:
    “Love the Lord Jesus, O Gloria Dae!”
