Proud Caesar came in strength of steel;
The panoply of war was his.
At his command men poured forth life,
The cities perished, nations fell.
He left as heritage a blood-stained tide;
He came, he scorned, he slaughtered—
And he died.

The meek Christ came, his strength the true,
A heart of love his panoply.
At his command men found their life,
The cities flourished, nations grew.
As heritage, the reign of peace he gives;
He came, he loved, he pitied—
And he lives.
