You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Je saurai pourquoi -- quand le Temps sera fini --
Et que j'aurai cessé de me demander pourquoi --
Le Christ expliquera chaque angoisse séparément
Dans la jolie salle de classe du ciel --

Il me dira que "Pierre" a promis --
Et moi -- éblouie par sa douleur --
J'oublierai la goutte d'angoisse
Qui m'ébouillante maintenant -- qui m'ébouillante maintenant!


Translation of title "I shall know why" = "Je saurai pourquoi"

Enfin -- être identifiée --
Enfin -- les Lampes à tes côtés --
Le reste de la vie -- à voir --

Au delà de Minuit -- au delà de l'Étoile du Matin --
Au delà du Lever du Soleil -- Ah, Que de Lieues il y avaient --
Entre Nos Pieds -- et le Jour !
