When dawn appears to take the dark,
and rise up minds for waking,
let me have one moment more,
one true glance worth the taking.
Let my heart be filled with light,
as night holds back bleak sorrow,
let us find the truth in faith,
and try again tomorrow.
Gather up my sins and count them,
let them blow like wind tossed rain,
let me learn the greatness in giving,
and the healing after pain.
Let me be a light bringer,
a mind that knows it’s power,
to speak, to learn, to understand,
to let true compassion flower.
