A Prayer for Light Lyrics

Oak Pantheon
(lyrics taken from "Darkness" by Lord Byron)

I had a dream
The bright sun was extinguished
And the stars wandered in the eternal s***e
The icy earth swung blind and blackening
In the moonless air
Morn came and went
And men forgot their passions in the dread
Of this their desolation
All hearts were chilled into a selfish prayer for light

A fearful hope was all the world contained
Forests were set on fire hour by hour
They fell and faded
The crackling trunks extinguished with a crash
And all was black

And war did glut himself again
A meal was bought with blood
Gorging himself in gloom
The world was void
Seasonless, herbless, treeless, manless, lifeless
