The setting Sun had cast a long and slender shadow,

Caressing this warlike earth,

Confusing nations which inquire of Its nature,


This was the shadow of a man,

His actions displayed perfection,

Bringing a secure feeling to many.


His face was long and sad,

And his eyes were filled with sorrow.


This man whose voice calmed angry seas;

Whose smiles turned night into day and Winter into Spring,

Whose hands held the secret of life,

Who in the zenith of his life made nations his friends,

And who upon the hour of his death had fifteen to call him friend.


Yes, this man who broke the bonds of Hell to set men free,

Today has nations for friends,

And nations for enemies.


This man departed this world alone,

And will return with a magnificent host to judge all
