The Speech of the Rebel King

“In this world you will have trouble”

no truer words were spoken

by a rebel, body broken

on a mount in Galilee

 

“Peace I leave with you”

no battle greater met

 the One that paid the strangers debt

on a mount in Galilee

 

“Abide in My Love”

Live as  One bride

In every village and mountainside

without a national divide

 

“The World will hate you”

because it hated Him.

it shrieked, it writhed, it gnashed its teeth

at the One born with no sin

 

“I go prepare a place for you”

in a house with many rooms

O wayfarer, once slave and sinner

This is not your home

 

” I have overcome the world”

Not with missiles or the sword

But by My own blood and testament

Kings will bow, their power spent

.

 

So be joyful, have good cheer

for my Comforter is near

though weeping may endure

The victory of the Word is sure.
