THE CAPTIVE LOOSED

by William Cullen Bryant

THE CAPTIVE LOOSED -

Whendoomed to deaththe Apostle lay

At nightin Herod's dungeon-cell

A light shone round him like the day

And from his limbs the fetters fell. -

A messenger from God was there

To loose his chain and bid him rise

And lothe Saintas free as air

Walked forth beneath the open skies. -

Chains yet more strong and cruel bind

The victims of that deadly thirst

Which drowns the souland from the mind

Blots the bright image stamped at first. -

OhGod of Love and Mercydeign

To look on thosewith pitying eye

Who struggle with that fatal chain

And send them succor from on high. -

Send downin its resistless might

Thy gracious Spiritwe implore

And lead the captive forth to light

A rescued soula slave no more. - -

THE END
