Go, descend into the bowels of the abyss,
Into the darkest of the dark,
Into the stillness that suffocates,
Into the silence that deafens;
You will find there your salvation,
in the bowels of the deep.
When your lungs are purged of the toxins that had
turned it from oxygen,
When the ear of your heart knows noise from God’s presence,
Then the stillness will release you,
and the silence empower you.
To go forth into this crazy world
filled with souls’ assassins;
And you will be safe in the Lord,
Ready to be his masked assailant
against the forces that enslave the people He loves,
And you will set souls free.
