The Sword Of God

The Sword of God

by Joshua Coffman


We talk of swords, we talk of shields,

But realize now that he who wields,

The sword of God, must surely die;

The man that lives will groan and sigh.


In worlds of wonder, a sigh denote,

For yet the knight of old will quote,

A verse of words, writ down to try:

The man that lives will groan and sigh.


I AM, He lives, above the world,

His banner must be borne unfurled,

To stand alone, bearing standard high:

The man that lives will groan and sigh.


Unroll the riddle they cry all night,

The slowly coming, unwavering light,

For truth alone a man will vie:

The man that lives will groan and sigh.


The sword of God is, frankly, His Word,

Which by now of course you’ve heard:

That dying to self will make you die;

The man that lives will groan and sigh.


Life, indeed, is in your view,

Affected, a lot, by color and hue,

Done without Christ, it will weep and cry:

The man that lives will groan and sigh.
