Damnation and Hope



Oh God, weep upon thy world lost in disgrace,

Bound in the transgressions of her first patriarch

Has set up for lasting rule this false corrupt monarch;

Virtue, love, and humility no longer dwell in this place

With people, whom in their hearts, do evil embrace,

Allow their eyes to be ignorant to the dark;

As the path towards evil and damnation they embark

Banning truth and redemption is their commonplace.

Oh but how there is a glimpse of Salvation!

Its form knows nothing of splendor

By its light can all evil works be undone,

And bring hope and joy to a nation.

Its peace shall forever endure,

If only they can recognize thy son.
