The Faithless Shall Marvel
Poetry By Gerard Haughey

 They established themselves
Their road a narrow one
Theirs were their own
They choose and they chose.
 
Exalted they, themselves.
 
And the world spirals
Between the infinite math of variation
Surface, The Believers. 
 
Christ's.
 
Laying down their earthly life,
As their Father had.
 
And their world,
Them who exalted themselves
Had power in the world.
 
Thou in time,
They are powerless, 
For their kingdom had passed away.
 
And the dead in Christ will Rise.
Then the living.
 
They will marvel of our power
These worldly men of worldly stature
How is it so?
They will utter..
 
It is of Sacrifice,
Which is Faith, manifest
In their world-
They carved our Cross.
And we laid down our life
Broken and crushed.
 
Sons of the One True One
 
And lo,
Their own world will witness 
Of them.
 
Amen.
