Rest On Dear Amazon

 

 

All hail this daughter of Zion

God’s bride, saved from Babylon

The one that passed Jordan and Redsea,

A faithful forerunner in the

wilderness.

 

Amidst tares, she was rosy

Among thorns, she blossomed

Above glasses, she glittered

Among stones, she was golden,

Fought scorpions, tamed plagues

Charmed serpents, and won adders.

 

Turned all stones, left no vacuum

Mission accomplished,

Purpose undenied, loud and clear.

 

Go home, great amazon

Be with your king,

Rest like a princess

Enjoy the fold of Saints,

Finished: earthly overwhelming labours

Rest on, dear Amazon!

You came, you saw, you conquered.

 

 

 

 

In memory of Mrs Roseline Chinelo Eze

from Ngozi Olivia Osuoha, her daughter’s

(Chinyere) friend.
