Battle of the Lamb

Born of a virgin’s womb,
Pure amongst this fallen world’s kin.
The last hope of all sinning hearts,
The joy of angels from heaven above.
He fought the Devil,
Long and hard,
He fought him from the first.
All crimes He took,
Onto His holy self.
Upon a wooden post the Lamb fell,
To the dark pits of flame He was taken.
The Devil thought he’d won;
The Devil laughed in his prison.
Though before he knew it,
The Lamb had turned and gone.
For sinner He was not,
Like the corrupt beings He’d left.
The Lamb was resurrected,
In a stone tomb where His body lay in death.
The price for the sins,
Of the fallen world’s kin were paid.
Heaven opened its gate to the fallen world again.
Will they receive the given gift?
Or rot in in a fiery pit?
It’s for them to choose.
Their salvation was the victory,
For which was fought the battle of the Lamb.

This is a wonderful poem! I've been wanting to make a Christian poem, but did not know how to start. You have inspired me, thank you!

I love the poem, especially the ending - it added more depth to Jesus's death

I had never thought of writing a religious post. I really enjoyed this. Question for you... Was this written near Easter? I always feel really religious and peaceful near Easter... :)

I loved this poem.  Your passion and respect for what you believe in shines through and is so strong, and the imagery is awesome.  I love the voice, it's an excellent piece all together.  Would you mind reading some of my stuff and telling me what you think?  Id really apprecuate it :)

Great job! I have never been able to write a religious poam. May I ask what religion you are? You don't have to tell me if I'm being intrusive.
