The Rev. Dr. Merle D. Correll is the first voice on this track.


In the beginning, all was void and without form,
And the cosmos was but a mote upon the face of the deep.

An unknown grain of sand upon some distant shore,
Once could have shamed the cosmos,
And a fleck of dust floating in a sunbeam,
Could once have known greater breadth and reach,
For a water drop once could have carried the cosmos
into the sea to be lost forever.

And so it was, but all begins now,
From our initial cause to our aftermath.
Let it be reverence to look upon the sky;
Knowing it once might have hidden under a pebble,
From the sharpest of gazes.
But all begins now, for now; forever.

Distance and time; here and now
Is forever where all begins;
And forever from the first cause.

All begins now, from first cause to final darkness,
For even the cosmos will know final sleep.

All begins now, from that first mote
Exploding into a greatness beyond the dreams of gods.
