You vigiled those frightening house alone
In the Garden while friends slept nearby.
You know what it is like to face the future
Wondering if you have courage to do it.
You watch now with us in our hour of need,
In those moment of confusing choices,
In the nights before medical surgery,
In the room of farewell to a loved one.
We lean on the hear of your compassion
Assured that we will not be left alone.
