Gather now (Farewell 2016)

Gather now and light a candle here

And let us all remember yesteryear,

And let us not forget the days of peace;

Let us recall Vaughan’s eternal wreath.

 

Gather now and light a candle here

And let us not continue yesteryear,

Nor fail to understand the trumpet call.

Let us together learn how kingdoms fall.

 

Gather now and light a candle here

And bring to mind the losses of the year,

And bring to mind the heroes that will be

And what it means to leave a legacy.

 

Gather now and light a candle, friend.

The world has ended and the world will end.

We’ll yet clench hope betwixt our gnashing teeth,

And stand as stones though bound and crushed like wheat.
