The Great King's Shadow

Rages that terrible battle, in deep

darkness, deceit, disdain, Divine

Obedience cries remain as

Rises undeterred the Shepherd's' Shadow

whose splendor unseen

Save under clouds of grace and glance as

Gains the dawn, this Day without End.


Though hard fought, costing

cruel crown and cross, crushed

obedience, hell's cacophony is silenced by Word's

Weakness ablaze in Uncreated Fire

And still the Lamb's concealing shade covers

Hidden hearts once dead, now

Born again, this Day without End.


Who rules Day and Night in power

Perfected? O Prince of Peace,

obedient praise of glory, worthy Lamb!

You reign by faith's secret. That hope invincible

unmasks scheme's smirk, causes crowns cast down, all under

that Mighty Shadow once slain,

Alive again, this Day without End.
