Standing Among Us

There, but not yet,
    talked about, but hidden,
    visible, but not seen.
Anticipated, expected
     by the man at the River,
     always looking out there,
Figuring soon He would come.

Making the way ready,
    a way not yet walked,
    only purposed by God.
A long time in the making,
    the man at the River
    caught up in the vision,
Knowing soon and not later.

Proclaiming the not yet One,
     though unseen and coming,
     already standing among us.
Still no one sees Him,
      His voice still silent,
      His power still leashed,
But, surely here and coming.

(John 1:26)
