the seats of honour and the high domain

 all of our answers turn out to be true

though journeys start and end in pouring rain

there comes a time to pause and take the view

 

our knowledge is constrained by what is new

not by the old nor yet by thoughts of gain

all of our answers turn out to be true

 

since what we've done must constitute a coup

in favour of the honest and the plain

there comes a time to pause and take the view

 

of all the folk whose minds may yet construe

the simple vision that when we entrain

all of our answers turn out to be true

 

both to our hearts and to those who are due

the seats of honour and the high domain

there comes a time to pause and take the view

 

when all is clear and the noon sky full blue

we are redeemed by virtue of our pain

all of our answers turn out to be true

there comes a time to pause and take the view
