Watchman (Monchielle Stanza)


Look! Someone is coming!
Man the battle stations!
Set the shields! Raise the pikes!
Prepare yourselves to fight!
We’ve never seen the like.

Look! Someone is coming!
But where is the army?
Where are they? Where’s the rest?
Does He come by Himself,
Thinking to scatter us?

Look! Someone is coming!
The heirs of Nimrod fall!
The walls are breached and burn,
Warriors fleeing, cut down,
Everywhere we turn.

Look! Someone is coming!
His train fills the temple!
Majestic are all those—
Redeemed, restored, mercied—
Friends made from former foes!
