When evening comes, I drowse in fear, my Lord
From flicked memories drifting in sorrow.
My tears flow for blest graves stretching out light
Pleading now and tomorrow. I rise in might
My heart cries to heaven from every fall
In times, I’m alone, You are eternal.
Close to me, Lord, I lean, You are eternal
My sins, forgive me. I sing you praise, my Lord.
In silent hours, in You, shall my days fall
Timeless, your mercy, I profess my sorrow.
Between us, through years, O God, in Your might
Your fire, twisting me in cold gentle light.
I adore Thee, my Lord, in darkness and light
Before You, all good triumphs be eternal.
You ask me, “Do you believe with all your might?”
Yes, I believe, as St. Peter said, my Lord.
“Have faith, little one, be healed of thy sorrow!”
Come Holy Spirit into me, my knees fall!
In Thy cross, Your strength Lord, when all else falls
Trusting Your word, surrounds me Your bright light
And even now, in our Lady’s sorrow
Beading paths, peace in war, joy be eternal.
All my agonies held in your cross, my Lord
Twin Hearts hold me close, angels lift in might!
How much do I love Thee with all my might?
Many times I betray you, I fail, I fall
Yet how many dawns and happy days, my Lord
How many beautiful sunsets, fading light
Across the ports, you bless us, eternal
Your heart draws me near you, rest me, in sorrow.
Blessing of prayers, You teach me, in sorrow
Delight in Therese’ rose petals holy might!
I shall not be afraid in Your love eternal
In death be with You, in Thy shadows fall.
In chants, on Your altar, I submerge in light
You, alone, my fortress, dear God, my Lord!
Pray, our Lady of Sorrows, when we fall.
God our Father, let Your might bring us light!
Most Sacred Heart, eternal, mercy, my Lord.
