They swell into a story
Truth grows toward light

We have lost so much
Thrown out goodness and the light
Now chaos pervades
Yet light and peace will return:
Acknowledge the creator

There’s nowhere to hide
The light of truth shines on all
Is your conscience clear?

We watch you salute
The rest of us are crying
A light has gone out
The riderless horse breaks free
His saddle is refitted

Plotting underground
They scurry in the darkness
Brought into the light

Do not block the light

Love’s sweet shadow will follow

And all will be well
