Salvation Blues

And in the domain of silver shores, their feet
touched cold ground and doubt lapped over.
In the hope they weren't wrong, all along,
they prayed for salvation and they prayed forgiveness
and they prayed everlasting existence.

Until a moment of reckoning raised the waters,
and all became impossibly clear.
These were their words;

We have stood together, as we now stand.
We have breathed together, as we now breathe.
We have burned together, as we now burn.
We have walked together, as we now walk.
We have sung together, as we now sing.
We have danced together, as we now dance.
We have drank together, as we now drink.
We have prayed together, as we now pray.
We have crossed together, as we now cross.

And cross they did, and free they went,
and imprecate the unbelievers.

What life is this? Deliver me
from days in wait for saviours.
