Peter Coryllis

OUR FATHER WHO ART BANISHED TO HEAVEN

1961. Translation of Mr. A. A. K. Swannell, M.A., Alverstoke, Hants., England.  60 translations. Kreis der Freunde um Peter Coryllis, Walchum/Emsland, Germany

OUR FATHER

Who art banished to Heaven –
Besmirched is Thy name
And all Thy goodness abused.

Thy will was trampled underfoot
And Thy love was spurned.

In Heaven Thou art praised
But on earth Thou are strangled.

Our daily bread will rot
Because our guilt chokes us,

And only the guilty are left on earth,
For guilty have we all become.

We have not only fallen to temptation,
But we have bred it openly and shamelessly,
And evil spread without bounds.

Will Thy salvation yet come?
- Father, this I ask in prayer,
May Thy will be done!

Amen.

„Rost auf Gottes Geboten“
