Stephen

Stephen

The foes are biting, his head hung low,
It rained so hard, the stones and blows,
Yet, even as his blood ran cold,
Victory beckons! To the Lord, he holds.

Legion

Legion

The Devil’s brood, his demons vile,
Lies abound, dark, full of guile.
Of this wretched company, stern warning take.
Their aim, just one, to drown your soul in hate.
~ D.F.

“Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” He replied, “Legion,” because many demons had entered him.”
~ Luke 8:30
