Prisoner take heart:
Listen and you will hear
Keys turning in their locks.
No guards will come for you this time -
They have all been despatched -
Kinsmen arrive and rescue is at hand.

Keep courage, weary soul:
The ordeal is almost done,
Your sufferings soon will cease
And sweet succor shall be yours.
When the hour strikes upon the clock
It marks the end
Of Time.
