The Defeated

Think not because you raise...

Think not because you raise
        A gleaming sword,
That you will win to praise
        Before the Lord.

And though men hail you great
        Unto the skies,
Deem not 'twill ope' the gate
        Of Paradise.

Though you have gold and gear
        And fame and power,
What odds when you draw near
        The Judgement Hour?

But if in bloody dust
        Yet unafraid
You battle for the Just
        With broken blade--

Then will the Lord look down
        With eyes of love,
And you shall win a Crown
        All price above.
