UPLift Poem: A Song for War

I usually publish all my UPLift material online. Not so sure with this one, since I regard it rather highly.

The poem/song was obviously inspired by this fact, the anniversary of the death of Julia Ward Howe in 1910. So here’s the first stanza.

Of all the costly wars of men, both righteous and unjust,
Waged for freedom or for power by the scourge of human lust,
Rages war for souls in heaven after armies turn to dust,
Our God is marching on.

  1. One of your best, Randal – the continuing marching on and the thread through strong images of the New Testament are both creative and exciting. Keep it up.


  2. Thanks, Tom, for this and other comments you’ve made. Encouraging. Glad you liked this one. I kinda liked it myself.

  3. Randal,
    I’d like to see the rest of the song (‘looks pretty good!).
    I enjoy reading your articles, and appreciate Forthright.
