As their heads were severed and dropped to the ground,
Their new glorified heads had on them placed a crown.
We need not to pray for those 21, for they are with their Lord,
But pray that among the murderers there will be a Saul of Tarsus about to change the world.
As Saul stood by and watched Stephen innocently die
The Holy Spirit began to mighty convict...
Until the great day when Christ arrested Saul and said,
"It is hard for thee to kick against the pricks."
So join in prayer that among the murderers with their swords,
One will exchange his weapon for the living and written Word.
And just as Saul became Paul and found in Christ his new joy,
This modern day Paul will preach the faith he once tried to destroy.
And then in Heaven one day we'll all stand amazed
At how these considered their temporal lives of such little worth,
Resulting in a multitude of new converts and renewed boldness that echoes,
"the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church!”
