An Oracle

"For they have not rejected thee but they have rejected Me"
-------------------------------------------------
O nation, hear! and witness Earth,
A worth far more than gold of old:
A merchant sold his finest wares
To those afar, across the sea
Where none are blind and all can see
The delicacy of thy tares;

See! O country bathed in arms
Alarms from all thy corners, bare:
A sword is promised from afar
A truth, a truth and not a dare!
See! The powerless wield their weapons,
The powerful shriek in pain;
Thy gold and thy silver corroded,
Thy splendor delivered in vain

A child is promised, o nation!
A child of pain to endure
A child of death, and devastation
Shall never escape thy shore

REPENT, o my nation of anguish
REPENT and put sackcloth and ashes
REPENT and let God be the witness
REPENT and be free of thy lashes

REPENT, o nation, why wont you repent?
Why do you test the Almighty?
