Put the sheep out to pasture,
muzzle their mouths until mute
slaughter the faithful in the flock
if the world, they should dispute.
Build walls that will separate,
the regime from the throne
just as in the days of Caesar
in the ungodly city of Rome.
Tear down commandments,
the ten Godliest of all rules
make happy the unbelievers
who think Christians are but fools.
Take away prayers in our schools,
the children don’t need to hear
about a God they can trust . . .
in their foremost, growing years.
Silence of the Lamb of God,
the blood of grace be still . . .
for this is not of the republic
nor of the people’s will.
King James Version
“Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb
that was slain to receive power,
and riches, and wisdom, and strength,
and honour, and glory, and blessing.”
Deborah Ann Belka
