If angels poured from angered skies
Who would dare to lift a sword?
And who would even wish to try
If God should come to war?
If Earth was wreathed in holy flame
So sinners might not live
Who would think to act the same
If God ceased to forgive?
No man could harm his fellow man
If God stood in the way
If He took our free will in hand
And violence would stay
Conversely, should the Lord descend
From his high thrones above
And mankind to His own will bend
What man would give Him love?
