Into Thy Presence I will come; when evening shadows do stretch to
far horizons and the brightness of the sun has grown dim; when the
darkness of night envelops the face of the whole earth and the light of
day no longer shines; into Thy Presence I will come.
When wickedness pervades throughout all the lands and the Light of
truth ceases to shine; when joy is replaced by sadness and love is
decimated by hate; when corrupters do rule and the poor are oppressed;
into Thy Presence I will come.
When laughter is replaced by weeping and singing turns into
mourning; when all hope seems to be done and suffering encompasses the
face of the whole earth; into Thy Presence I will come, Oh Lord.
