A Word Picture--special post

Roger White has written what he called a "word picture" about the Master's visit to the West and placed it in his book, A Sudden Music. 

I would like to post it below, to inspire a musician to set it to music!  Please send us the results!

              The Guest

He arrived, and who shall picture Him?
One saw, as in a clear vision,
That He had so wrought all good and mercy
That the inner grace of Him
Had grown greater than all outer sign,
And the radiance of this inner glory shone
In every glance
     and word
        and movement
As He approached with hands outstretched.
     Your love has drawn me here. I waited
     forty years in prison to bring the Message
     to you. Are you pleased to receive such a guest?
