the twilight events of history,
the ultimate destiny of humanity,
the destruction of the world
and the end of time will come.

me remember always that I shall be called
to account one day for all my deeds,
good and evil, as recorded, we are told,
by the scribes of Saint Peter.

will atone for my sins,
and wash away my guilt.
and in trusting faith.
