There lies a thought my soul contemplates on
A sole purpose I can’t let pass me by
If I by chance go on, I know I won
The more I delve, the less good I let die

Of thoughts of faith of just one lord
I know the truth, I delve on your passion
I must express faith now! I can afford
To feel God’s grace, to feel love’s compassion

One day she dies, my life, my existence
Where’s hope? No more peace, only lasting pain
The despair within me, no resistance
I see dark clouds overcastting the rain

Why faith? You left in this straining battle
Please God! I cry, but there is no rattle
