Two Men

The Caesar and the Christ
so different, kings
of regal birth, in a manger laid
power, authority, humility, death on a cross
by might to rule, by love to serve
opposites, called saviors in their time
very different models
woven in that moment in time

Today only one stands
whose birth we wait for
to this very day
the son of God
come down as man
the Christ, our Messiah
Lives and reigns
