The Faithful

Thought today I would share a poem I wrote quite a while ago. The first stanza is from Steve Green's song "The Faithful"; the rest is mine. :)

In dark filthy places
Our brothers and sisters
Are paying the price
They will not deny Him
to purchase
their freedom
These are the Faithful
The martyrs of Christ

They’re tortured
and beaten
And finally their voices
Fall silent at last
and Silence reigns again

From under the altar
Their blood is outcrying
How long, Lord?
How long till my people
Will again hear Your voice?
Who will come to
Raise Your banner?

How long Lord
How long till our
Torch of truth can
Be passed on

How long Lord?
