I lift my eyes and know I need not mourn.
Sweetly nuzzled, his head lies in somber resplendence,
And I know that I am not alone

In somber resplendence, we all must someday adorn
Our heads and lie us down to sleep our way to the Other.
I lift my eyes and I know I need not mourn.

Sweetly nuzzled, our hopes and fears can become torn
Between what we know and what we want to believe.
And yet I know that I am not alone.

There will forever be times when things seem so forlorn,
And bitterness will envelop our hearts evermore
Yet, I lift my eyes and know I need not mourn.

For Hope is behind every corner, even when our strength is worn
And tattered, like the final shreds of stubborn hope.
And we know that we are not alone.

The sleeping babe, wrapped in scraps of cloth, a picture of
Love's divine role and never-ceasing plead for us to try.
I lift my eyes and know I need not mourn,
And I know that I am not alone.
