The orphans and the stricken have heard of Thy healing power.
They have come to Thy door.
Wilt Thou turn them away empty-handed?
Those whose hearts are breaking with sadness and despair: dry their scalding teardrops with Thy invisible hand.
Those who are lost in delusion—to whom shall they turn, but to Thee?
Lift Thine unseen veil of silence and appear in Thy overwhelming, divine compassion.
Before the coming of the dawn of Thy presence, all their dark troubles will take wing.
