He came like the dawn after the night.
We could but watch in our dismay,
As the father burst in searing light;
The Anointed One was cast away.
But yet I did not yield defeat.
In his arms I felt my body break;
Conjured the fall beneath my feet,
And held me above the fiery lake:
"Though you may take me now
And rend the spirit from my flesh,
I shall not kneel, I will not bow,
I shall defy you until death".
