Theme Beyond the Earth
A Rondeau Redouble

Music resounds through noted halls of fame
cathedrals resinate in joyful tone,
still in my soul, they burn eternal flame,
as sacred themes arise to grace His throne.

Past scenes of evil deeds now few bemoan,
as notes march forth like sentries in a frame.
In loathsome grief, the lost cry to atone
and cleanse their dread inequities and shame.

Praise choruses reflect His great acclaim,
and how He died upon the cross alone,
I often glimpse my sinful soul at blame,
until the angel rolled away the stone.

Resurrection day story now well-known,
we sing a medley, glorify His name,
the day, in love, He bought us as His own,
with His power, the world He overcame.

These melodies play sharps and flats the same.
Inside my soul, a gentle rising drone
now resonates in silence mine to claim
lifts up our God, the mighty cornerstone.

He bought us with His blood, not just a loan,
our Lord He is, let voices all exclaim.
Our faint hearts sing unspoken monotone,
all through the day, perfection is our aim,
music resounds through noted halls.

Your intriguing title captured my attention! The poem flowed fairly well, but I'm wondering why the last stanza had an extra, non-rhyming line. Your piece contained very interesting imagery, and has a good message.
