The Iron Beast
 
Behold the iron clad beast
As it rises from the sea
It leaps upon the valleys
It tramples every living thing
 
Its maker rides upon its back
Pulling on the reins to stop
Man and his intelligence
Too proud to heed the words
 
Prepare thyself, for it could be
Too wild to tame, you see
Hear the words of God
The master of invention
He can see the future
As if it were the present
Let thy soul preach to you
Let it control your
Wayward thoughts
Let it tame that mighty beast
Make life safe and sound
The way that God had
Planned for it to be
