猶みたし 花に明行 神の顔
なほ見たし花に明けゆく神の顔

nao mitashi
hana ni ake yuku
kami no kao

How I long to see,
Among dawn flowers,
the face of God.

Sacrifice
Born to a virgin
Was the Lamb and the Lion
Crucified for us
------------------
Purpose
He gave up His life
So we may live forever
He recieves His bride
------------------
Hope
Satan's fate is sealed
With the last breath Christ exhaled
Nailed upon the cross
------------------
Companion
The Holy Spirit guides
And leads us to our Father
He utters what we can't
------------------
Rejoice
Praise Jesus our King
The wedding is now prepared
The table is set
------------------
Proclaim
Do not hide in fear
Be bold and spread the Gospel
And be freed from sin
------------------
Forever
He who has overcome
Has always and always will
and does, He is ALIVE!
------------------
Shepherd
The sheep see the staff
They follow it with no fear
The staff will keep them
------------------
Protector
While wolves lie in wait
The shephard keeps safe His flock
And the hedge is high
------------------
Suffiecient
One word is spoken
It is all that is needed
One word, His word;AMEN
------------------
In His care
Fallen, scraped and bruised
Before the great Physician
Our scars healed with blood
-----------------
The Carpenter
Three nails and two beams
Constructed a church of Saints
That will stand forever
-----------------
Two
Two arms He opened wide
Two days He gave up to death
Two Angels said He lives

Haiku is a Japanese form of poetry where you don't use rhyme (partially because MOST japanese words can be made to rhyme one way or another through conjugation), but instead use a strict meter of 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables.

I told you guys I wasn't very good at this! I count my syllables wrong...

Let me modify it today...okay, I fixed my original Haiku, now it matches the syllables...

Are you kidding me!?

These are all beautiful! I've written them down on post-its and tacked them all around my desk!

They're like little lights all shining around me! Different colors. So pretty...
