Passion and Resurrection

The shining marble of eternity’s home,

Glowing furnace of pain’s desire,

Lashed to the column of mankind’s woe

Hung the Victim of Israel’s ire.

– 

Crowned with the barbs of worldly conceit,

Clad in vesture of nature’s scorn,

Love’s cheek burning with the traitor’s deceit,

Thought’s kiss with man reborn;

 –

High on a tree on Moriah’s mount,

The great Lie hath met its clay.

As the dark night’s crusture was rent,

New life greeted Eternal Day.

 –

Agony’s burden by triumph dispelt,

Five rubies blushing aflame,

The Hero of Failure mortality dealt,

And arose the nations’ Name.

 –

When Vict’ry’s Bride hath borne the abyss

Her Master once bore and secured

The crown of fidelity, crown of conquest,

Then shall the bull be submerged.
