Away! Away! No ride away!
The rider came and said
Make haste! Make haste! It plans to waste!
Your lands and strike you dead
Up! And up! They all got up!
To grab a little to take
They ran! They ran! Away they ran!
Ahead of what's at stake
Look! But look! Just take a look!
A few ignored the cry
Alas! Alas! But oh alas!
Their fate they could not hide
Storm! A storm! A riotous storm!
Engulfed the staying crowd
Flood! A flood! A raging flood!
Swept 'way them and their town
Away! Away! It swept away!
The lands that used to lie
Life! But life! But also life!
It brought this evening nigh
Anew! Anew! It brought anew!
Rich soil, seed from afar
Give! To give! New life to give!
Those returning, new life to start
