This approaches now by water
Or by fire
We may ride the wave triumphant
Or expire
We may warm our skin by sunshine
Or we burn
We are gone in one brief instant
Or return

This approaches like the dawn
Will follow night
We may drown within the depths
Or yet alight
We may open up our arms
Or close in hate
We may warm the world or yet

This approaches like a warning
At the dawn
We must rise to meet this moment
Or be gone
