Quatorze Juillet

Happy Bastille Day!

My humble contribution to the celebrations is a poem, anglicised and heavily adapted from the French National Anthem, ‘La Marseillaise‘:

Lift your hearts children of the Father,
The King of Glory is alive;
Against the forces of the enemy,
Christ’s victory banner has been raised;
Sing with choirs worshipping our God,
The voices of His angelic host;
The Spirit lives each day in our midst
To point our hearts to the Prince of Peace;
Arise people of God!
Go out, declare His truth!
March on, march on,
Honour the blood
Of the Saviour of the world!
