Time and Judgment

A window was opened in heaven,
For the space of half an hour;
A maiden mixed in her leaven,
Until it was kneaded throughout the flour.


The guests were invited,
The mansions were prepared;
The wages of work were decided,
The names in the book were declared.


The hearts of men being weighed,
In the balance of life and death;
God's mercy to the ones who prayed,
While the wicked took their final breath.


The poor, the blind,
The sick and the broken;
A meal for the mind,
A word well spoken.


The window began to close,
For time was gliding on;
The last to make their repose,
Sang the words of Moses’ song.


Queen Judgment gave her final warning,
Cutting so deep, time was sent to mend;
Then night changed to a bright morning,
And the beginning turned into the end.
