Outcome Pre-determined


David J. Collins

Can I stand alone?

If threatened with imprisonment would I run home?

If questioned by the Inquisitor would I recant?

If given high profile could I still smile?

Against the wind of adversity I would stand.

Against the howls of ridicule I'd remain a man.

Against the disdain of friends I would remain faithful,

to Him who paid for my shame.

Crucify! Crucify! Was the cry of the mob.

I refuse to bow down and for Him to sob.

For by the blood of the Infinite was my mortality sustained.

And by the death of One Invincible will I one day reign.

So I matter not in the scheme of things.

To Him be the Glory all the Angels shall sing.
