God’s War
By Carl Jonas Love Almqvist (1793–1866)
 
HIS mighty weapon drawing,
  God smites the world he loves;
Thus, worthy of him growing,
  She his reflection proves.
God’s war like lightning striking,        5
  The heart’s deep core lays bare,
Which fair grows to his liking
  Who is supremely fair.
 
Escapes no weakness shame,
  No hid, ignoble feeling;        10
  But when his thunder pealing
Enkindles life’s deep flame,
And water clear upwelleth,
  Flowing unto its goal,
God’s grand cross standing, telleth        15
  His truth unto the soul.
    Sing, God’s war, earth that shakes!
    Sing, sing the peace he makes!
