Beyond the Pale of the Maddening Din

Beyond the pale of the maddening din,
The golden light is shining!
Past the toil and the strife within,
For beyond are heartbeats pining.
What on earth could satisfy
An insatiable hunger?
Only the holy bread of life;
Satisfied eternal.
Whispers cruel from the maddening din
Threaten to undo us.
Fears without and a faint amen,
Deep in our hearts are knives thrust.
Rise up now from this death!
The Risen one has conquered!
Dragon slain by the Slain One’s breath;
Endless living proferred.
I will not stay in the maddening din,
For it is not my home now.
It will be made new again!
Already but not yet; vowed.
Golden light shall illuminate
From the Lamb upon His throne!
Vain striving meets its final fate
As heaven and earth are one.
Vain striving will meet its final fate
As heaven and earth become one.

Daniel was raised in the woods of Dickson, TN by a group of elves. He ate lots of turnips and grew up quickly, learned kung fu and mercilessly fought his way through the ranks to become Dickson County's own king of the gnomes. Soon, he grew bored and bid them a tear-filled farewell, then sailed away to Bible college where he met the girl who would become his wife. They got married, had kids, then his family ended up being international missionaries just outside of Tokyo, Japan. He kind of sort of likes gaming, graphic novels, and good podcasts.

    This is good, both poetically and theologically!

        Just listened to this. Sounds great. It sounds like something Christian hobbits and dwarves would sing. I know it doesn’t sound like it, but this is the highest complement.
