Oh, for a heart that's pure as light,
And a soul that can live through the darkest night,
For a dream to survive in the raging sea,
And a love to endure, whether chained or free.
Oh, for a hope that will not fade,
For a joy that's as bright as the brightest jade,
For a peace that will pass every road or rule,
For a wisdom that knows neither fame nor fool.
Oh, for a spirit so sweet and true,
For a kindness that shines as the deepest blue,
For a goodness that shudders at whip or rod:
Oh, this we would know, if we just knew God.
