They were born in the desert.

[ Music ] 

 

But, before that, they lived here,

In this mighty empire,

In this land of abundance, 

 

They were born from those who spoke with God,

They were raised by those who wrestled with God

 

Yet, they are slaves, outcasts, misfits, and foreigners,

At home here, in this abundant, opulent prison

 

Tamed

by power and injustice,

Drowning 

in riches and wealth

 

But, quietly a small fire burns,   

A fire that will not go out

The fire of God

(That spoke with them)

 

Then a man came from the desert

Carrying the fire, carrying the words

And the world began to change

 

The fire that sets time ablaze,

The word that forms every world

Calls them to the desert,

 

To leave their home and prison,

Cast off their chains that shield them

To a land no feet has tread

 

But, the empire and their home, 

refuses and holds them fast, 

 

So, the world begins to shake

Life begins to bleed

Nature begins to rage,

Riches unravel, abundance withers

 

Relentlessly, the voice speaks 

You are called to the desert

The world will not be as it should be,

Until you heed this call

 

The empire groans

Its gods turn away

Sky burns, Day darkens,

Every power fails

 

And marked by blood,

You are called by the fire,

….

 Through the howling winds,

Past the parting waters

Toward a bare, burning mountain,

Into the desert

 

To a land where there is nothing

No water, no life, (no power, no home,)

No sign, no marker, no path

Barren, terrible emptiness

 

With only that distant fire, burning

Unfolding time, speaking the world

Calling,

And waiting

 

In the desert

 

your God awaits

 

You will be born here, 

A nation unlike any other 

(That has come before)

 

A people 
born 
to God

In the desert
