The people of the earth are mighty,
And their time is at hand.
They do not yet dream how soon,
But I dream.

The rulers of the earth are stubborn,
But their end is at hand.
They do not dare to think of the end,
But I dare.

The dead of the earth are past reckoning,
But they are still to be reckoned with.
They do not seem to be living,
But I live.

For to dream and to dare
Is the only life,
And to dream and to dare and to die
Is the only resurrection.
