Anagram of an extract from the Book of Revelation

The right-hand side can be read as a poem or the lyrics to a hymn of sorts.


Verses 7-9 in Apocalypse/Revelation 12:

Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. The dragon and its angels fought back, but they did not prevail and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. The huge dragon, the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, who deceived the whole world, was thrown down to earth, and its angels were thrown down with it.

Happy in Hell?

"With a Devil's hot guitar,
 With bass line of night black,
 Metal 'gods' in 12 bars
 Chant the morals they lack.
   
 Won't the warning stand heeded:
 'Throw away the CD!'?
 And no evil Napster needed,
 Get the  good  words free -
       
 Draw near Handel - neat! -
 And a nun, age 97.
 Watch novel Convent-TV!
 Angel, is this heaven?"
    
    ...or hell?
    
    When the words are obscene
    - What pure poisoned narration! -
    We ought to add "Gee,
    "It's in Revelation".
