The Return of the King

Yet now still all creation groans
   to be redeemed by Love,
That gives new life to dried up bones
   through Spirit from above.
For th’ancient serpent, devil-worm,
   who lost in heaven’s war
Still rages here on earth a-storm
   with Babylon his whore.
Their lust for blood, their ardent hate
   of all the woman’s seed,
Demands that they exterminate
   mankind in drunken greed.
Before the throne of God the saints
   are witnesses and weep,
Rejoicing midst their tearful ‘plaints
   with martyr’s victory leap.
Who rides upon the wings of light
   still wrapped in clouds and thunder?
The Servant-King returns in might
   to tear the skies asunder.
A trumpet calls, the angels sing
   and ride in heavenly power.
When all the world has seen the King
   his enemies shall cower.
His glory shining forth resplendid
   shall fill the sea and earth
And all our woe and wounds be mended
   by Him of virgin birth.
