1633 Lyrics

3. 1633 (6:03)
What is the reason God blessed me with sight?
And shows me these signs in the sky
Where my observations are now leading me
I am just so afraid to describe
My certainty
The centre of the universe is the earth
The Holy Father has decreed
But I believe this heliocentric truth
Will they burn me for what I believe?

In holy flame be purified
In holy flame

How can all this be offensive to God?
Who created all that I see
How can I deny what I know to be real?
Will they burn me for what I believe?
In holy flame be purified

Injuring the holy faith with my blasphemy
I will face torment, and I will taste pain
I will be purified in holy flames
I pray for my salvation
Offending the Holy Church with my heresy
Before this court and before Holy God
I beg for mercy please forgive my sin
I pray for salvation
This fact cannot be disputed
The centre of all creation is here
No debating and no discovery
Pray for my salvation
I abjure curse and detest all my errors
They are contrary to the Holy Scriptures
I recant for everything I have said
Pray for my salvation

And so we turn
And so we turn
Turning in a circle in a circle round the sun
