My Lamb Has a Sword

Mary might have had a lamb
     whose fleece was white as snow,
But my lamb wears a scabbard
     with a sword in it, and not just for show.

Behold! said the Baptist John,
     Who takes away the world's sin,
By dragging the point of His sword,
     making a line in the dirt in front of Him.

He came not to make peace,
     but to divide, to make holy war,
To wield, to brandish, to pierce
     the sin of man like never before.

Matthew 10:34
Revelation 19:11
