Death Bells

“…et audivi vocem magnam in caelo dicentem nunc facta est salus et virtus et regnum Dei nostri et potestas Christi eius quia proiectus est accusator fratrum nostrorum qui accusabat illos ante conspectum Dei nostri die ac nocte…”


Friend, can you hear

The death bells ring?

They slowly swing

With sound so clear.


Son, do you see

The marching feet,

The tomb they greet,

So joyfully?


We celebrate

A battle won

By God’s own Son

Against hell’s gate,


So put to rest

The things of Sin–

Who sleeps within–

And join the fest.


David JW Inczauskis, nSJ
