Upright: Acts Poem 7

Stoning of Saint Stephen, by Jacopo & Domenico Tintoretto – Public Domain

A testimony bold by an upright man

A martyr’s fate soon to recieve

A history of a people related

To urge his accusers to believe

He was prepared to stand steadfast

No matter what consequences on Earth it might bring

For he was prepared to declare the truth

Of his risen everlasting King

And when the crowd in rage rose

Jesus from His throne did too

And welcomed His servant to His side

As stones and insults the mob threw


Poem 7 of the February Acts Poems based on Chapter 7.
