Prophetic Song Lyric

Was surfing around the 'net today and listening to a Gordon Lightfoot "best of" complilation on the stereo. Heard a song I haven't heard in years. Given the current state of affairs in the middle east, the lyrics seem timely though they were written 20 to 30 years ago (not by Lightfoot). But I certainly hope they're not prophetic... :praying: Pride Of Manby Hamilton CampTurn around go back down go back the way you came Can't you see the flash of fire ten times brighter than the day And behold the mighty city broken in the dust again Oh God, the pride of man broken in the dust again Turn around go back down go back the way you came Babylon is laid to waste Egypt's buried in her shame Their mighty men are beaten down the kings are fallen in the ways Oh God, the pride of man broken in the dust again Turn around go back down go back the way you came Terror is on every side though the leaders are dismayed Those who put their faith in fire in fire their faith shall be repaid Oh God, the pride of man broken in the dust again Turn around go back down go back the way you came Shout a warning to the nations that the sword of god is raised On Babylon that mighty city rich in treasure wide in fame It shall cause thy towers to fall and make it be a pyre of flame Oh God, the pride of man broken in the dust again Thou that dwell on many water rich in treasure wide in fame Bow unto a god of gold thy pride of might shall be thy shame Oh God, the pride of man broken in the dust again And only God can lead the people back into the faith again Thy holy mountain be restored thy mercy on thy people hoard Lyrics copied from a Gordon Lightfoot web site: Lightfoot! :thanx:
