Canticle of the Turning – Rory Cooney

June 17, 2018

A song from this afternoon’s Plenary (complete Assembly) session of the 223rd General Assembly…

This particular verse hit me…

From the halls of power to the fortress tower,

not a stone will be left on stone.

Let the king beware for your justice tears

every tyrant from his throne.

The hungry poor shall weep no more,

for the food they can never earn;

These are tables spread, ev’ry mouth be fed,

for the world is about to turn.

Refrain

My heart shall sing of the day you bring.

Let the fires of your justice burn.

Wipe away all tears,

For the dawn draws near,

And the world is about to turn.
