Forsaken

 

“Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh,

shall he find faith on the earth?”

Luke 18:8

 

We stand at the end of time

years by the thousand passing by

since its remote beginnings at the word of God

 

We stand at the end of time

desolate

forsaken by God

having forsaken Him

 

Alone at last

in this universe

whose very seconds numbered

are ticking by

too rapidly to count

 

Oh Lord our God that we could turn

again to worship you

that You would set our spirits free

from the cage they clutch so fierce

 

Oh Lord, God of all creation

though we honour your name

how great we despise it
