Sing A New Song

Yet, a new dawn is not born without the Sun.
And if the mind survives, the battle is won.
Hence, think thou not on all that be wrong.
Let loose your lips and sing a new song.

The carnal record bears the hoar times

Of cackling fires and widened faces,

Of stringed symphony and rendered rhymes,

When the Truth reigned in all seasons

 

Now, our heads are thrown aback in despair

And we stagger to answer the knocks of sorrow.

We quake beneath fiction’s feet, we weep afeard

For again, we recall the heightened barns of tomorrow.

 

Of our song, on my lips, the lyrics have vanished

And the Union’s melody is now that of rivers.

Our altos and sopranos are altogether vanquished

For at blank faces the vocal chord quivers.

 

Yet, a new dawn is not born without the Sun.

And if the mind survives, the battle is won.

Hence, think thou not on all that be wrong.

Let loose your lips and sing a new song.

 

“I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.” -Psalm 144:9, KJV
