There was once a single tongue for every member of our race
When they started on a project that the Lord would set aside.
It was thought a way of keeping them all living in one place
Was to make a name by building up a tower to the sky.

"What they set their mind to do will be within their highest reach
Because We made them creators after Our own holy form."
So the Lord said, "Let's confuse the very fabric of their speech
That they scatter through the land like golden leaves before a storm."

They all went on with their talking only no one really heard
Because each was isolated in a spire of their own tongue.
The proud strategy of power meekly broke on twisted words
So the venture left behind a mighty tower but half done.

Now that project's time has come.

Confusion will be rended.
Babel upended.
Communication mended.
Babel upended.
Knowledge wisely blended.
Babel upended.
Design so long intended.
Babel upended for the temple inside -
True Union in the Bride.

The first tower's grand design was from the pride of blinded man
But the Kingdom is the temple that is built up without hands.
Now the Body joins together in the Master's closing Plan
Far above our human tongues and master races and great lands.

Confusion will be rended.
Babel upended.
Communication mended.
Babel upended.
Knowledge wisely blended.
Babel upended.
Design so long intended.
Babel upended for the temple inside -
True Union in the Bride.

Old divisions that have cut us off from God will be repaired
And unite the wealth of knowledge that is locked up in the Bride.
Understanding flows between us through the Holy Ghost we share
As we listen to the whisper of the Lord alive inside.

Confusion will be rended.
Babel upended.
Communication mended.
Babel upended.
Knowledge wisely blended.
Babel upended.
Design so long intended.
Babel upended for the temple inside -
True Union in the Bride.
Babel upended.
Babel upended.
Babel upended.
