We taste of anguish that You must have borne
when unleashing, the world-wide Flood;
drowning all mankind (save eight)
in the mud.
The World is rushing, rushing to suicide.
Youth and its rebellion and drugs,
its self-absorbed skills and horror thrills
is providing us with an emblem.
Keep us at Your feet, O Lord.
Praise to your holy name.
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God: Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
(2 Timothy 3:1-5)
