The time for talk was over,
The time for action passed,
The time for thought as ever
Had been considered last.

But as before it faltered,
But as before it ceased,
But as before it altered
Neither war nor peace.

By midday it was too late,
By midday most confused,
By midday only estimates
Were all that we could use.

For as it is consistent,
For as it is decreed,
For as it is in distance
Then so it is in speed.

So pray the night we will survive.
So pray the night as one.
Then pray tonight we’ll spend our lives
Under tomorrow’s sun.
