The Truths of Fire


Long ago fire came to man's aid
It emitted the light that the night forbade
Again fire came as ice crept the land
It carried light, and warmth in each hand
But now we need fire to do it's last deed
it must burn bright and inflame man's greed
For fire came and we took it for our own
We must pray for it to burn the seeds which we've sown
What species would miss us were our time spent
for our sinners sin while the sinless repent
