The New World


As we stand with faith and gratitude
On the threshold of the day
That will usher in a bright new world
The one for which we pray
Let us look beyond the old world
With it's sorrow and its pain
To that new world over which
A righteous king shall reign
A world that never more will know
The scourge of war and strife
But will bring to humble meek ones
Peace and everlasting life
So with words of praise upon our lips
Let us faithfully serve our King
Telling others of the joys
That His blest new world will bring.

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
