G.K. Chesterton and Iron Maiden


A classic song of Iron Maiden, Revelations, borrows a profound verse from one of G.K. Chesterton's hymns.

O God of earth and altar Bow down and hear our cry 
Our earthly rulers falter Our peolple drift and die 
The walls of gold entomb us 
The swords of scorn divide 
Take not thy thunder from us 
But take away our pride
