Numberless are the world’s wonders
But none more wonderful than man
Words and thought rapid as air
He fashions for his use
And his the skill that deflects the arrows of snow
The spears of winter rain

From every wind he has made himself secure
From every wind he has made himself secure
From all but one … all but one
In the late wind of death he cannot stand 

Sophocles, Adapted by Lee Breuer for The Gospel at Colonus
