Come all you furious

I've had the tune from the old hymn 'Come Ye Disconsolate' in my head for the last while. I'm working on some other words, and here's what I have so far:

come all you furious
rampant and wanton
bring all your terrified
bring all your lust

come to the mercy seat
come wielding hammers
Jesus has plans for you
come, come and see

where are the wanderers?
where are the lovelorn?
come to the walls of hate
come to tear down

fling wide your arms and songs
your pain and your fabulous
earth has no fury
that heaven cannot beat

we are his hands and feet
his knees and elbows
we are his aching heart
we are his fists

watch out you slaveholders
watch out you haters
Jesus lives in us
and he is pissed.
