Waking mercy of the sunrise

Won’t you show me where your strength lies

Furnish hope and give me courage

To endure this earthly body


For the limits of the flesh

Weaken resolve, crippling the soul

And the numbness of a frigid night

Is stealing joy away from sight…


You wonder why it all went wrong

What turned the tune of your fair song

What was the sin in your past life

To send these shadows haunting you


But steady now, the light has come

A silent angel has returned

To share her glowing, gracious breath

And turn your thoughts away from death


For now
