Come boy, drench him,
Splash, splash, splutter, splatter,
Quench him, quench him!”

Looks down on the descending sun
So gently evening blends with night
You scarce could say that day is done."

Far away from it all
There is a place you go
Where teardrops fall.”

Your trumpets, angels, and arise
From death, you numberless infinities …”
