Farewell to evil, I’ve been summoned home. I shall not miss your charm.
I will not miss your entanglements
nor your devotion to bring me harm.
Farewell to thee, sneering whisperer, from dawn through night’s wakeful hour
you’ve lingered alongside my gullible ear
with lies dispensed to devour.
Farewell to thee, enchanting one, who laid in wait with cunning
and tracked me as a huntsman
when perception had me running.
Farewell to thee, deceived one, malicious, dark, and dour,
you thought your work had me enslaved.
My weakness perfects God’s power!
Farewell to thee, my enemy, ‘though your work has been self-praised,
God has purposed every stroke.
In Christ I have been raised!
