Psalm 13. Romans 5:18-19; “The Lord of the Rings” by J.R.R. Tolkien
Three Selves in One over new earth and sky,
Seven days spent in creation and rest,
One paradise where Man never need die,
If he can pass this one oh-so simple test
In the face of the Dark One’s fork-tongued lie.
One rule, and that was all. One Man to break it.
One Man to bring the fall, and all Mankind to take it,
In the aftermath of the Dark One’s lie.
Three crosses up on a hill, in a line,
Two bearing Men reaping what they had sown,
One with a heaven-sent pure sacrifice
Soon to serve Man’s sentence entombed in stone,
In wait for the morning when he would arise.
One death in place of all. One Man to take it.
One Man to see the wall ‘tween Man and God and break it
In order that we, too, one day will arise.
