Battle at midnight

Warriors fighting
Flaming swords ringing
Angels alighting
God’s praises singing

But when darkness falls
Join battle again
Demons shatter walls
Fill craters with sin

Father God with thee
Christ Jesus inside
Spirit comes swiftly
Sin again denied

Lucifer escapes
The demons go quick
But do not long traipse
Received thou a prick

Thoughts lingered too long
Mind began to drift
God heal the soul’s wrong
Name the seeker Shrift

Tedious onslaught
Yet all must endure
Lest all be for naught
Pursuit of the Pure.
