The Music of Life

A tune unheard

By all, but Thee

A sound of the life

Thou created in me

Some days are so sweet

As if heaven on earth

No complaint to be found

In a heart full of mirth

With the peal of bells

Loudly echoing strong

Notes vibrantly playing

A most beautiful song

Yet then comes the darkness

When conflicts arise

Hope growing ever more dim

Beneath threatening skies

The peal of bells are now tempered

Subdued in their length

Lost are notes in a song

Which no longer bears strength

But should not it be

A wonderment one should bear

Thou blesses us with a life

For which Thou always dost care

Then to us should it matter

Whatever sound it may be

As long as what's heard in the heavens

Is still music to Thee...
