this is the end

the fires of heaven came,
they fell upon the land
destroying the world






and so we prayed endlessly;
to our merciful god we sung
until our voices cracked,
until our choir thinned,
until, with one soloist left,
respite and rain blessed the land;

listen as this final ambassador
then lifted a joyous noise
in adulation and cried out –

“praise be to the merciful one
who, hearing our endless lament
wept tears for the billions dead
and interceded to save this one –
may your love endure forever…”
