Mikołaj Rej - Martin Luther, the Doctor
MARTIN LUTHER, THE DOCTOR
The Lord in heaven counts one day as thousand years
And waits a long time before showing His powers,
But here His holy patience lasted much too long,
As among true gossips His glory barely shone.
At last His holy might couldn't suffer it longer
And He inspired a man who thought in like manner:
Martin from Wittenberg, a virtuous doctor,
Who brought into the light of day His famed splendor.
Translated by Michael J. Mikoś
