With lips so soft and sweet,
To grant mankind new birth
That we would worship at your feet.
Eternal optimism now within my heart aflame
For You have beckoned to me-
You have called my soul by Name!
And I will mourn my passing never-
Won’t sing as one who has no hope!
To own You be my sure endeavor,
It was for me the world You spoke.
