"Manifold Greatness"

i was chained like a Bible to the pulpits
Sunday sermons(fire and brimstone)Jesuit cadence
King James intonations Hebraic/Aramaic
Strong as fire,iron obedience.All text translations-
All responses hymnals of praise
To find and sing original lines
with sparseness,poetry and life
Choirs of scholars have surpassed their origins
Yet original language is rare/filtered through context
Literacy,printing presses,exegeses-these scriptoria
closer in time and telegram than our glossalia
Bone bold,skin taut,King James translates
our desire for truth into faith.
