The Event of a Thousand Years

 

some feared, some scorned,

countless millions cheered

counting themselves blessed

to be living at this moment

in time

 

the progression of millennia

the rounding of the sum

hope springing forth renewed

that terror will not live again

in time

 

a vast and chanting horde

counting down to zero

to get to two thousand

and cheers when the change

of time

 

and some, in prayer, and kneeling bow

their heads in supplication

to the God of all our ages

their salvation implore ere the end

of time
