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!

One more glimpse of the sun

Language: English

  One more glimpse of the sun, 
  One more breath trom the sea, 
One more kiss from my darling one --
  Then, Death, come speedily! 

  One more smile from my sweet,
  One more clasp of a hand,
One more sound of returning feet --
  Then come, that Better Land! 

  One more passionate prayer 
  To Christ, that He shall be 
My Guide as I climb the Golden Stair --
  Then come, Eternity! 

Translation(s): GER NOR
