Is It a Stretch?

Never been forgotten

Vision by the River

Hinting God’s own Glory

Grasping prophet’s heart.

Many wings were beating

And loud praises uttered

Could one delve the message

God would there impart?

One the face of lion

Two the ox of service

Three the face of mankind

Four the eagle’s gaze.

Could it be Christ’s Gospel

Bringing God great pleasure

Linked with Him in mercy

Through unending days?

Matthew showed a King’s reign

Come to people’s turmoil.

Mark a willing servant

Ever at the plow.

Luke a man for all men

Stories and deliverance.

John a bird of Heaven

Dipped our flesh to know.

Later one beloved

Last of all disciples

Saw those very creatures

By the Patmos shore.

Scarcely had the language

Fitting Heaven’s rapture

Led by those great creatures

Ezekiel saw before.
