Stephen Schwartz

"The Flood"

[FATHER]
This was the last chance I would give
Now it is corrupted, defiled and vain
Is there no escape from the race of Cain
Except to make it rain and rain and rain

[STORYTELLERS]
Windows of heaven and fountains of the deep
Windows of heaven and fountains of the deep

[STORYTELLERS]
Open!

[FATHER, spoken]
Behold I will blot out mankind from the face of the earth

[STORYTELLERS]
Open!

[FATHER, spoken]
Both man and beast and every creeping thing

[STORYTELLERS]
Open!

[FATHER, spoken]
The end of all flesh is come before me

[FATHER]
Rain!

[STORYTELLERS]
Rain!

[FATHER]
Until the end of time

[STORYTELLERS]
Rain!

[FATHER, STORYTELLERS]
And let the raging skies
Send it down as an endless hurricane
I made everything out of nothing
Now nothing will remain
And to the skies I send my word
Forever will it rain

[FATHER]
Oh my children that I love so well
My heart is dark and cold
I thought that you would keep me young
But you have made me old
All my labor all my love
I wonder now why did I bother
That’s what it means to be a father
I have destroyed the thing I loved
And now I feel so old

[STORYTELLERS]
And the waters were upon the face of the earth
Drowning out the promise of their first hopeful birth
Without form, void, darkness
