Great is God's truth, it shall prevail
through storm and lightning, wind and hail.
A silent flame within a wire
rebukes the self-promoting liar.

A wire imprisons, tortures, chills,
oppresses, terrifies and kills.
Grey, like the dusk of evil's hour,
and twisted, like distorted power.

A flame, truth's messengers have lit;
no human hand can darken it.
Its light shines on around the earth
asserting every human's worth.

A flame to frighten, yet inspire,
this silent frame within a wire.
Great is God's truth, it shall prevail
and tyrant and dictator fail.
