The new empire


The new empire

Give the world a moment of silence,
Bow facedown to the victims of wrong.
Candles throughout the planet give radiance,
Melting down a metallic stronghold.

All around you are stones and clay.
Many builders work in the night,
With their own hands making the base,
Laying bricks proficiently right.

May your heart sing aloud in your chest.
May the work give you joy and more strength.
Work on walls till you see blood and sweat,
Make the roofs of your fortresses straight.

Crush that yesterday chaos to dust,
Ruins of sorrow try to blow up.
Raise strongholds as high as the sun,
Symbolizing a new world of love.

When they pierce the blue of the sky,
Sparkling bright above crowds of people,
Every nation will see their light,
And the blind will start finally seeing.

They will shower with gifts every mother,
They’ll hold infancy sacred as may.
Everyone from now stands by his brother –
By his friend everyone stands today.

Power will be forevermore yours,
Kings will lay down before you prostrate.
You will put all the wealth of the Earth
At the feet of men worthy and great.

You will walk led by marvelous airs,
Young and filled with inspiring hopes.
You will rise up the diamond stairs
And sit down on a throne of gold.

Grace and beauty will mark those moments
You’ll declare with passionate fire,
“On the yesterday wreckage, behold —
I have built up a newest empire”!
