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.

2.

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.

3.

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.
