Life is a dream. Time, like a stream, Carries our burdens away. Never despair: Joy’s everywhere; Love can befriend you today. Free from all care, Like birds on the air, Soar above griefs and worries: Seek Joy and be gay! Often on earth Things of great worth Worldly ambitions defy. Sometimes a friend Helps us ascend Up from life’s cares to the sky. Love is a star: Though shining afar, It can guide us and help us Toward light to draw nigh.
Who tells me Thou art dark, oh my Mother Divine? Thousands of suns and moons from Thy body do shine.
