Oh night, oh dream, oh moonless sky

oh love, oh life, oh silent cry;

to feel, to touch, to taste so sweet

to hold, to have, to wisely weep;

let joy, let tears, let meaning come

let poem, let song, let hearts strum;

fight flesh, fight love, fight oh my soul

fight fear, fight lies, fight the unknown;

rise Hope, rise dew, rise sleepy sun

rise Faith, rise Light, rise and run;

so free, so true, so beautifully meant

so deep, so calm, so spiritually sent;

gone loss, gone cold, gone lonely pain

gone storm, gone clouds, gone pouring rain;

sweet morn, sweet dream, sweet heavenly kiss

Sweet Promise, sweet Truth, sweet fateful bliss!
