Upon awaking into day,
As I am opening my eyes,
Still drowsy, sober, as I lay
I wipe the tears of recent cries,

And offer thanks for Holy Light –
Offer my gratitude to God
For guiding me through darkest night,
For taking me so far beyond.

Constant companion of mine
My Guide through life and only Friend,
He teaches through the Love Divine.
Alas! – if I could comprehend

The silent words, His gentle touch,
I would have been much better off.
Yet if I’m deaf, I can’t hear much,
And being blind, won’t see His Love.
