From this dark and gloomy hour

agnus-dei-1640

From this dark and gloomy hour
I will brush away my past.
In my hands I hold the power
to keep on fighting to the last.

From this gulf and deepest abyss
I will reach the velvet sky.
I choose to live within this bliss,
my youthful soul will never die.

From this present state of things
I will change the world for you.
See this flower – how it springs
into each moment fresh and new.

From this dry and arid ground
I will make the water flow.
With greenest grass it will abound,
where is this place you’ll never know.

From this smashed stone and rock
I will erect a monument.
On empty space I will daily knock
and live in fear and discontent.

From this tiny loaf of bread
I will feed the multitude.
Bring forth the living and the dead
Receive your poison and your food.

From this little grain of sand
I will build the universe.
I thought it will forever stand
but the truth is quite the reverse.

  1. There is light at the end of tunnel.
    Night follows day. Have faith in God and your self. 🙂

  2. We ought to believe the eternal truth. Every other thing is just a passing phase.

    Wonderfully woven verses.

    There’s nothing that’s impossible. A little hope and a little belief would do anything. 🙂
