Some men have swords with which to fight To gain their carnal goals.
Luke 2: 35
Some men have swords with which to fight To gain their carnal goals. The mortal body they will smite, But God has swords for souls.
Like Mary, among women blessed And favored of the Lord, The servants we esteem the best Have felt God’s piercing sword.
The swords which cut the souls of men God uses for our weal. He smites but to bind up again And wounds that He may heal.
For God, when He ordains to slay, Is skillful with the knife; He wounds us not to take away But give abundant life.
