Never a peaceful rest.
Never has contentment filled my soul.
Never has joy penetrated my very being, and
Never have I been comforted.
No smile has ever compensated my longing.
No face, sweet and gentle, has brought balsam to my aching heart.
No kind words have allayed my infinite suffering.
I have helped many though helping I needed most;
I have healed many though healing I needed most;
I have guided many though guidance I needed most;
I have comforted when comfort I needed most.
When in deep sorrow I have smiled;
When joyous I have grieved;
Losing I was happy;
Gaining I was miserable;
And even have I loved my GOD.
No gentle rain fell on my head,
Cleaning my impurities.
No tears fall, but yet I am crying,
Crying in infinite pain.
