To St. Paul (3)

Michael Peach

Although he said Apocalypse
Would in his life the world eclipse,
While those who meantime conquered sin
A place on God’s new Earth would win;
And, though he would have found it odd
If "son of man" were "Son of God",
I don’t believe you truly lied
When "Jesus Christ" you deified:
For he, you thought, did Death defeat
Then rise to God and take a seat.
