An Unleavened Passover

In Israel’s land of bondage and pilgrimage
God asked Israel to keep the feast of Passover
They were enjoined to do so from age to age
Offer a lamb and afterwards eat bread without leaven
No yeast in oral orifice till seven days after the sacrifice
Any one who dared to eat leavened bread
That soul would surely be eternally separated
From this kingdom to face judgement’s dread
Paul says Christ is our own Blessed Paschal Lamb
Accepting and applying His blood is death-defying
We are preserved from death that strikes by stealth
He Sacrificed at the beginning of the Gentile week
For seven dispensations of time after His passover
Israel of the New Covenant must eat His Bread-Word
Seven Church ages without the leaven of worldly creeds
As of old, the bold man who eats leavened bread
Who taints the feast with doctrinal dilution of yeast
In any of these solemn seven Gentile dispensations
Becomes a spiritual cadaver for defiling the Passover

From the dark domain of Egyptian drudgery
Did not let them starve though they were without

It was sufficient for daily intake but not more
Hoarding for greed merely supplied worms’ need
The rotting excess became the doubters’ chore

God is our Source on this exodus to glory
His spiritual manna is allotted to every age
Thus tis no use to stay on yesterday’s page
