In Hell There Is Democracy

21 November 2011

King of Heaven
Come now swiftly
For the leaven
Rise unev’nly
Mixed with sinners
Now the faithful
Pray for brothers
Call’d now hate-fill’d

Sweet the sound is
Hymns rejoicing
Where we found this
Saving blessing;
But the many
Most confounded
Hate now any
Truth propounding

King of Heaven
Come now swiftly
Faithful driven
Hounded, weary
To sad mourning
O’er tarnished grace,
Desire nothing
Except Thy face.

    Back!

    And in fine form with a fine poem.

    A topical poem, too.

    Glad to see the post.

      Thanks, Glynn. Many things have kept me away from writing lately; hopefully that is changing.
