The Devil’s Moment

When the bombers are flying in the name of peace

With people hungry when they needn’t be

It’s the demon of greed when selfishness wins

It’s the devil’s moment.

 

When the innocent die because our cause is right

When fear is alive and cuts like a knife

When unfaithfulness wins and mistrust is alive

It’s the devil’s moment.

 

An aeroplane against a clear blue sky

Fearfully guided by an evil eye

Both sides of the world so many will die

It’s the devil’s moment.

 

Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison

Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison

 

When we turn away and pass on by

Though the cock crow we avert our eyes

When we don’t speak up so the truth dies

It’s the devil’s moment.

 

In Auschwitz or Palestine

Maybe on your street, maybe on mine

From Hiroshima to Rwanda genocide

It’s the devil’s moment.

 

They say if a butterfly beats its wings on one side of the world

On the other side a hurricane comes

So if we say a lie on one side of the world

What will happen on the other side?

 

May the words of my mouth – the thoughts of my heart

Be acceptable in your eyes, O God

Or I co-operate with the darker side, and …

It’s the devil’s moment.

 

Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison

Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison
