I Was Raised In Babylon

Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.

Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.

    How great the wonder of the heavens
    And the timeless beauty of the night
    How great – then how great the Creator?
    And its stars like priceless jewels
    Far beyond the reach of kings
    Bow down for the shepherd guiding him home

    But how many eyes have closed
    To the wonders of this night?
    Like pearls, hidden, deep beneath a dark
    Stream of desires
    But like dreams vanish with the call to prayer
    And the dawn extinguishes night – here too are signs
    God is the Light – God is the Light

    How great the beauty of the Earth and the creatures
    Who dwell on her
    How great – then how great the Creator?
    As its mountains pierce the clouds
    High about the lives of men
    Weeping rivers for thousands of years

    But how many hearts have closed
    To the wonders of this sight?
    Like birds in a cage, asleep with closed wings
    But like work stops with the call to prayer
    And the birds recite – here too are signs
    God is the Light – God is the Light

    How great the works of man and the things he makes
    How great – then how great the Creator?
    Though he strives to reach the heavens
    He can barely survive
    The wars of the world he lives in

    But, how many times he’s tried
    Himself to immortalize?
    Like his parents before him in the Garden of Eden
    But like the sun sets with the call to prayer
    And surrenders to the night here too are signs
    God is the Light Everlasting
    God is the Light Everlasting
    God is the Light Everlasting
    God is the Light Everlasting
