Weep for a while only
To mourn the passing light,
For death cannot destroy
What passes through its night.

Bonds it cannot sever
Chorded tight by power,
Wrapped by love’s embraces,
Sheltered by truth’s tower.

Every sun that here sets
A new horizon finds
Where it shall rise again
And ever brighter shines.

Although a veil conceals
This light an earthly hour,
The promised dawn will break
And shall reveal its pow’r.

Weep for a while only
But never do forget
The promises divine
That have not flourished yet.

Expect their every word
To stand, though mortals fail,
To bring you once again
Triumphant through the veil.
