Transcript of The White Horse King

The White Horse King:
Pivotal Battles of Alfred the Great
Romans 12:17-21 (Geneva 1599):
“(17) Recompense to no man evil for evil: procure things honest in the sight of all men. (18) If it be possible, as much as in you is, have peace with all men. (19) Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine: I will repay, saith the Lord.
(20) Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him: if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. (21) Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with goodness.”
“I know that weeds shall grow in it
Faster than men can burn [the weeds];
And though they [the heathen] scatter now and go,
In some far century, sad and slow,
I have a vision, and I know
The heathen shall return.

“They shall not come with warships,
They shall not waste with brands,
But books be all their eating,
And ink be on their hands.”

G.K. Chesterton, The Ballad of the White Horse
And it fell in the days of Alfred,
In the days of his repose,
That as old customs in his sight
Were a straight road and a steady light,
He bade them keep the White Horse white
As the first plume of the snows.
. . . .
“If ye would have the horse of old,
Scour ye the horse anew.”

G.K. Chesterton, The Ballad of the White Horse
(8.133-38, 206-7)
Alfred the Great

2 Chronicles 21:20: “He [Jehoram] reigned in Jerusalem eight years and, to no one’s sorrow, departed” (NKJV).
“. . . [I]t is only Christian men
Guard even heathen things.”
