This time

The time has come,

the appointed time of

redemption, restoration,

restitution: for now the

old has passed away and

today and tomorrow are

loaded up with glowing hope,

that once seemed remote,

a speck in the distance;

but now, O now!, we see it

plain, we see it clear, coming

this way, coming with joy

on her face and a torch

of light in her hand.
