Summary/Abstract: The author of this article provides a comparative analysis of the two poets of the 20th century, that is, Jerzy Liebert and Tadeusz Chabrowski, whose oeuvre is regarded as belonging to religious lyrical poetry. Bearing in mind the differences between the two poets, for example, the time these two poems were written, the author of this article has discovered some traces of their spiritual community. Both for the poet of the beginning of the 20th century (Liebert) and for the poet of the second half of the 20th century (Chabrowski), faith in God meant an inner struggle and dealing with human limitations and weaknesses, which has been discussed in the context of each of the poet’s biography. An increased focus is on the artistic realization of the litany – a tradition of the genre both poets referred to.
