To the Eternal Battle! – A Poem

Sharp. The sword.                                                           
The edge. Cuts.
Deeply to the heart.
Swift. The strike.
The blade. Glows.
Illuminates the soul.
Painful. The truth.
The word. Divides.
To the core of my being.
Suffering. The fight.
The battle. Endures.
Sin knows no further.
Dead. The Spirit.
The lord and lifegiver. Comes.
Lifts up my heart.
Raised. To new life.
I arise with Christ.
Called with truth sharp and swift.
To the eternal battle! 

In German:

Scharf. Das Schwert.
Die Kante. Schneidet.
Tief in das Herz.
Schnell. Der Stoß.
Die Schneide. Glüht.
Erhellt die Seele.
Schmerzhaft. Die Warheit.
Das Wort. Teilt.
Bis zum Kern meines Seins.
Leidend. Der Streit.
Der Kampf. Dauert fort.
Die Sünde weiß nicht weiter.
Tot. Der Geist.
Der Herr und Lebensspender. Kommt.
Erhebt mein Herz.
Auferweckt. Zu neuem Leben.
Erstehe ich mit Christus.
Gerufen mit Wahrheit scharf und schnell.
Zum ewigen Kampf!
