May I never take my eyes off You, O Lord.
For what else is there to do save trusting You?
You alone have promised us eternal Life—
You're our only hope, here in this hopeless world.

Fear keeps taking hold of me; it's round me curled:
Demons speaking doubts have clouded these mine eyes.
You are Light, clear Light that's shining through to me—
You're our only hope, here in this hopeless world.
