It’s my privilege to post another “Christian” poem by my favorite “post-Christian” poet, Zane Gilley. Thanks for your contribution, Zane. Beautiful work.Psalm II Why do the heathens fill themselves with rage And the peoples imagine things in vain? The monarchs of the world themselves engage And rulers counsel and bring forth a plan Against Almighty Jehovah on high And the one he has annointed, saying, “Let us break these bands we are restrained by, And these cords away from us let us fling.” The One enthroned in the heavens will laugh, Jehovah God shall have them to deride. Then he will speak unto them with his wrath With his fury, they shall be terrified. “I have placed upon the holy mountain Of Zion my king, the Anointed One.” I proclaim the words of Jehovah One That he has gracefully made known to me, “Thou hast now become my beloved son Even this day I have begotten thee. Ask it of me, and I shall answer thee Give thee thy inheritance, the heathen And the farthest lands across the wide sea To thee, begotten, for thine possession. With your rod of iron broken are they, And dashed into pieces like pottery.” Now, O kings learn this lesson of wisdom You rulers of the earth are warned of him. Serve the Annointed One with holy fear With much trembing kiss meekly his feet dear, Lest he be enraged, you’ll die in his path, For quickly kindled is his divine wrath. Blessed are all that will Take refuge in him still.
