Stranger God's We'Ve Known - Poem by James McLain

Before we stood, we swam
we swam the seas the oceans were to U.S. known
the streams and rivers hid
what we became.
What then we were, what dreams of God's we were
and noise was absent from the earth, the sun
was worth it's weight in gold and all was green and good.
Absent though was goodness though to them we were not bad
we were to them not good and half the children died.
The other half that lived to live moved far and wide.
We were not to close as we are now,
then never were we looking up the stars so bright
and loud, giving light to U.S. before warm fire.
Some gave sacrifice of living flesh to bottle flies,
others tossed the strongest and the best into the fires.
Man was head strong weak and killed all knowledge wise,
wise were certain men who fled
should teach what men should seek that man should know.
Waiting as man waits to know God's stranger than him self.
