You describe it in vain, you picture it to no avail,
Praising it is useless, cease to worry about it at all.
It is your true self, it has nowhere to hide,
Even if the universe is annihilated, it is not destroyed.
The sword was a terrible theme of all of history, and then they invented guns and bombs and tanks and chemical dust. While Jesus said he came to bring a sword, not peace, he was talking about the fight people would have to endure, defensively, just to stand up to the evils of the powers that be. In the end, the evil powers that be, simply took over the religion, and claimed it as their own, as they didn't care either way in their old gods, or the new, but it was a power move, and they used it to gain power, by killing billions.
