Holy Royal Authority

The other day I saw another headline in the news about the royal family of the United Kingdom,
and I wrote a short piece about the royal Kingdom, not of this world and forever united:

Many like reading tweets
About royal families.
I think we long to see
Good use of authority.
We feel the pain is deep
When cruel justice is decreed.
Most extreme in history,
One was well versed in grief:
Crowned with thorns, mocked and beat,
Jesus was nailed to a tree.
Here came He from heaven’s Seat,
God in flesh, to set free
Those who this good news receive
And in our hearts believe
The risen King who forgives
Those who for mercy plead.
