Grant us eyes of piercing strength
that see the mostly wicked ways
we walk through life and strife and smile
for we’ll only be here this short while

When darkness claims us hours hence
and pulls us from our huts and tents
constructed oh so carefully
the time will come
when we shall see

finally, finally

all we needed to be free
was to open grateful eyes and see
