Lyrics: 1-4 Scene <br/>ANDERSON <br/>We still have time. Many others will help. <br/> <br/>CLAYTON <br/>He went willingly, John. <br/>He could have saved himself many times. <br/>ANDERSON <br/>But he needs to be saved from himself! <br/>The Church is a loose web, and the gales <br/>Of our time will rend it if he leaves us now. <br/> CLAYTON <br/>Europe has heard him, the migration begins: <br/>Our people come; where his mantle is, the people <br/>Come; it covers them with the light of the grove. <br/> ANDERSON <br/>We stand here, impotent, and let him die. <br/>CLAYTON <br/>You have known it would come to this <br/>Since you first heard him: all is well. <br/> ANDERSON <br/>But nothing is solved; nothing. <br/>Our enemies will not change. <br/> CLAYTON <br/>He has become an instrument. <br/> ANDERSON <br/>Long ago, when the Church was new <br/>He saw it was useless to be apart <br/>From the Church. <br/> CLAYTON <br/>His strength or weakness is the Church. <br/> ANDERSON <br/>Even you and I could face them, armed. <br/> CLAYTON <br/>They circle and wait, painted and slavering. <br/> ANDERSON <br/>The cowards are assembled, and I weary of them. <br/>Let us ride into them, swinging and striking. <br/> (Clayton remains back.) <br/>Then at least me! <br/> (Several shots can be heard.) <br/>I have waited and talked, <br/>And Joseph is gone. Like a mist, <br/>I swirl about my words and they condemn me. <br/>Joseph! <br/> (He looks down; the movements of his body indicate he is sobbing.)
