It lumbered forth with giants force,
That great momentous thing
To take it back, what it had lacked
And slowly spread its wing.
And darkness fell to all below
Its mighty shadow dark,
Its limbs wide spread, it filled with dread
All who saw its mark.
It stood and stretched to wait for it
What it was wont to have:
That shining blade, keen edge well made
Engraved with the Golden Calf
Its use, a sentence to damnation
twas the bane of many things,
Its power, to bring down nations
A curse on the heads of kings
The protector of the sword rode out
For He would not allow
His faithful peoples to be conquered
By monsters fell and proud.
The sinful sword of sinful make
Held in his holy fist.
He told the beast, “upon my life,
This sword you’ll never get.”
