Lament of the Coal

We have ached here in the soot
For so long we forget time
Cold in us has taken root
In coming ages light won't shine

Yet, the pure ones glistening
In the Sun's radiant glories
God's light was their christening
Harvested from earth's quarries

Give us light oh give us light
May it shine up-on... us
Compress us oh God of might
To reveal in us dawn's blush
