Sword Ready and Raised

A sword is drawn and ready

The Law must be upheld

And those who flaunt

Their carelessness

And tend their house so well

Will see a day of vengeance

And Sovereign recompense

When all their toys

And tactful ploys

Will prove a poor defense.

For Christ-less they have journeyed

And Christ-less they have earned

The accolades of common folk

Who Gospel hope have spurned.

How could they be so foolish

The plague is at the door

The surgeon’s knife

The fiery strife

To settle judgment’s score.

While Grace seems all too simple

Just trust in blameless blood

The sinner’s Friend

True to the End

While goodness is pursued.
