By HisMoreCONTENTS:· THE LAMENT OF THE FALLEN ANGELS· THE HARROWING OF HELLa selection from: THE LAMENT OF THE FALLEN ANGELSIt is revealed to those who dwell on earth that God had strength and power when He wrought the borders of the world. By His wondrous might. He established the sun and moon, the rocks and earth and the ocean-stream, water and clouds.

By His strength the Lord upholdeth all the deep expanse, and middle-earth. The Son of God beholdeth from the heavens the sea and its foundations- He numbereth every drop of the showers of rain. By His wondrous power He hath ordained the number of the days. Even so in six days, by His spirits might, the Lord in heaven devised the valleys of the world and the high hills, and founded them.Who is there that clearly knoweth all that mighty work except Eternal God?Joys He dealeth out and riches. He first created Adam, and a noble race, the angel princes, which later perished utterly.

For it seemed to them in their hearts it well might be that they themselves were lords of heaven, princes of glory. Then a worse fate befell them, and they went to find a home in hell, the foul abyss, where they must needs endure grim woe and surging flame, no more possessing radiance of glory or high-built halls in heaven- but they must needs plunge downward to those depths of fiery flame, down to the bottomless abyss, insatiate and rapacious. God only knoweth how He hath condemned that guilty host.The Old One crieth out of hell, with horrible voice uttereth words accursed: Whither is fled the glory of the angels, which we should have in heaven?

This is a home of darkness, terribly bound with fettering bonds of fire. The floor of hell is ablaze, and flaming with poison. The end is now not far when we must suffer torment, pain, and woe, no whit possessing bliss in heavenly glory, nor joy in her high halls.

Lo! once we knew great bliss before the face of God, and songs of praise in heaven in happier hours, where now stand noble spirits round about Eternal God in His high hall, worshipping the Lord with words and works. And here in torment I must needs abide in bonds, nor ever hope for any better home, because of my insolent pride.Then answered the foul fiends, black and sinful, chained in torment:Thou with thy lies didst teach us not to serve the Saviour! To thee alone it seemed that thou hadst power of all things in heaven and earth, that thou wert Holy God, even the Creator.

Now thou art bound, thou wretched fiend, with bonds of flame. In thy splendour thou didst think the world was thine, and power of all things, and we, the angels, with thee. Loathsome is thy face! Sorely have we suffered for thy lies! Thou saidest that thy son was Lord of men. Now is thy woe the greater.So with bitter words and moaning voices the sinful spirits spake unto their lord.

Christ had cast them out, and banished them from joy. They had lost the radiant light of God in heaven through overweening pride.For all their joy they had the floors of hell and burning pain. Pale, their beauty marred, the fallen angels, miserable wretches, wandered through that loathsome pit, because of the presumptuous deeds which formerly they wrought.
