Rainbow of Radiant Promise


 (Send as an Inspirational Christian e-Card!)

Rainbow of promise

Circling the sky

Reminder of God’s covenant

Dazzling the eye


Radiant colors

Prismatic, to shine

Inspiring the heart

With promises divine


Vibrant hues

Violet, scarlet, green

Indigo, yellow, blue

Sweet to be seen


Rejoice, my heart

In the sight I see

The rainbow of Promise

Encircling me


For God promised Noah

And all mankind

Again a worldwide flood

Earth would not find


Wondrous truth

Yes, glorious to know

God’s love for me

The rainbow does show


Yet a Covenant lovelier

Than the rainbow above

Is the Covenant of Christ

A Covenant of love


Yes, more incredible

Far more amazing to see

Is my Savior upon the Cross

On mount Calvary


More captivating to my soul

More stunning to my eye

Is my Lord who willingly

For my sins did die


Far more radiant is He

Far more lovely His Face

Sinless Lamb sacrificed

For the human race


My heart trembles

Humbled I am by the Cross

My Jesus is most Precious

All else I count but loss


Lord, I long to know

How could You die for me?

To suffer to such extreme –

How could this ever be?


Light beams from Your eyes

Mercy pours from Your heart

You remind me of Your love

You whisper we will never part


The Cross of Calvary

On that day long-foretold

Displays Your eternal love

Far more precious than gold


Your powerful love, Lord

Transcends all thought

So much You love me

My soul is blood-bought


In Your eyes I see

A rainbow gleaming pure

Your arms embrace me

Your love will endure


Rejoice, my heart

In this glorious sight I see

My Lord’s everlasting arms

Encircling me


Yes, a Covenant lovelier

Than the rainbow above

Is the Covenant of Christ

A Covenant of love


Vibrant hues

Violet, scarlet, blue

Yet far more beautiful

Is my Lord’s love true


Radiant colors

Prismatic, to shine

More captivating is Your heart

Your mercy divine


Rainbow of Promise

Circling the sky

Reminder that You, my Jesus

Are to me always nigh

    BEAUTIFUL! The prism of the heart creates a beauty and scene of love in Jesus that abounds more than promise. Jesus took God’s promise to His people and placed it in our hearts that can project His colors and His love. How could he do this for us? I can not comprehend it but like you, can praise him for it. Caroline, thank you for sharing a gift where words can pierce the heart! Glory to Him for His gifts He has bestowed in you!

      As is your comment: BEAUTIFUL! Thank you very much, Tom! Yes, the “prism of the heart” creates a rainbow of radiant love – ever reflecting the heart of our Father above! His Sacrifice, the expression of highest love, is beyond our comprehension; yet we can rejoice in the love we find, in the rainbow we see in His eyes. May God continue to bless you and speak through you, dear brother, and I extend my heartfelt thanks for all your encouragement! Yes, all GLORY is GOD’s!! AMEN!!!

    I love the rainbow — in fact I almost used it as my logo. It’s awesome that God gives us tangible signs of His covenants with us. Of course, the most important tangible sign of the New Covenant is Jesus!

    Thank you for using your amazing gifts and talents to glorify God.

    Have a Victorious Day!
