Gabriel’S Message Does Away


Gabriel’s message does away
Satan’s curse and Satan’s sway,
out of darkness brings our Day:

so, behold,
all the gates of heaven unfold.

He that comes despised shall reign;
he that cannot die, be slain;
death by death its death shall gain:

Weakness shall the strong confound;
by the hands, in grave clothes wound,
Adam’s chains shall be unbound.

By the sword that was his own,
by that sword, and that alone,
shall Goliath be o’erthrown:

Art by art shall be assailed;
to the cross shall Life be nailed;
from the grave shall hope be hailed:
