In the beginning people had nothing,
Their bodies ached and their hearts held nothing but hatred.
They fought endlessly but death never came
They despaired stuck in the eternal quagmire
A man offered a serpent to the sun,
And prayed for salvation.
A woman offered a reed to the sun,
And asked for joy.
Feeling pity for the sadness that had overrun the earth
God was born from those two people.
God made time and divided it into day and night.
God outlined the road to salvation and gave people joy.
And God took endless time away from the people.
God created beings to lead people in obedience to her.
The red God Xuchlibari
The yellow God Lobsil Vith
Many Gods and Angels
Finally God set out to create paradise,
Where people would be happy by just being there.
But there God’s strength ran out and she collapsed
All the world’s people grieved this unfortunate event
Yet God breathed her last,
She returned to the dust promising to come again.
So God hasn’t been lost,
We must offer her prayers and not forget our faith.
We wait in hope for the day...
When the path to paradise will be opened.
