Most Beautiful Prophecy


Most beautiful prophecy
In the story of Abraham
Who held his God so dear
That he would sacrifice his only son
An angel of the Lord spoke to him
'Do not kill Isaac.'
Never again would a child of Abraham have to die
Abraham saw a ram to take the place of his son
In truth, the Lamb took the place
The saddest place of all
The Lamb took the place
Of the sons of Abraham

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
