Invictus

Thank you to Byron Gray for sharing his amazing testimony yesterday at the Gathering.

Here is the poem that Byron shared. Be sure to read the rewording at the end.

“Invictus” by William Ernest Henley

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Here is the ending of the poem as reworded by Byron Gray

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
GOD is the master of my fate:
JESUS the captain of my soul.Image
