The lone shofar trumpeted the divine invite
The church bell echoed in resonating reply
The beacons lit beckoned into the twilight
Alas, we heeded in unity to urgent comply
In ones, twos and trickles soon torrentially marshalling
Rolling and meandering soon euphorically outpouring
Strolling and sauntering soon elatedly marching
Alas, our arrays were soon gloriously reverberating
Hoisting our banners we walked and prayed silently
Waving our flags we prayed and sang vociferously
Raising our hands we sang and walked attentively
Alas, we were mission passionate and unwaveringly
We gathered a thousand strong in jubilant anticipation.
We sang praise and worship in reverent adoration.
We prayer walked for our nation in triumphant exaltation.
Alas, we were drenched by night’s deluge inundation.
