A rare vision, and precious to behold
To see in spirit, what it was, and who;
The stuff of saints and prophets
Of Elijah, Elisha, and the Baptist.
The material of the Spirit
The Man of men;
The man of God that teaches
All men true manliness.
In Christ, the true Christ–
All is restored;
The creation, the might, the wind;
The power, the mind of wisdom.
I saw in spirit what it means
To be a man;
In a flash, in a moment:
A rare vision, and precious to see.
To understand by that light
Which enlightens all men in Christ;
By the Spirit, enlivening by feeling
And the power that brings life.
And, I saw the arm of power
Not by physical, but by might of the Spirit;
Creating, and reforming, and renewing;
Protecting, and providing, and establishing.
