this life so sorely needs a light

a tender ray or a gentle gleam

of light to shine and so dispel

the darkness so closely surrounding

we who perish here in need of

hope

 

this desperate life so fair and fleet

so long assailed by darkness, fails

has insufficient strength to stand

falls, overwhelmed by our sudden tears

we fail, dismayed, sore in need of

joy

 

this life so needful of a chance to

live, to spread its wings in flight

has but despair to claim its own

vainly look to the help of faith left

dormant on the shelf, in dust, to

fail

 

this life could in such glory shine

could such light upon despair bestow

yet unconcerned it stands aside, its

great power for life abused, it

stands useless while the garden

wilts

 


 

It is so sad to see,

God is so glorious

yet we think it small

to belittle His glory

for our own pleasure
