King Jesus is all

My all in all

I know he’ll answer

Me when I call

In a final chapter of

The Last Battle,

A non-Narnian who was

An anti-Narnian for

A time,

Has met Aslan, the

Metaphor of

Christ and God

x

And this young man

Is abashed

To know he has

Been serving faith

In another god

And way

And now must own

His condemnation

x

And Aslan

(and Lewis)

Judges remarkably,

As only God-as-love

Can

To pronounce that

Service done well

In his life

Is counted as

Service unto him

x

(sorry,

as a character

Aslan is male,

though we know

don’t we

that God is female

and male,

Jew and Greek

and more than

these)

Scandalous doctrine?

Some

Might think so,

Saving

Saving welcome for

Those outside

The fold

As Aslan

(in Lewis)

Says is so

x

God bless the ecumenical

Those who serve

That all might know

The glory

Living in

The realm of God
