The sun will rise each day, and night will fall.
We here can only wait, and watch, and see.
It is not ours to tamper with the flow
Of nature, nor mistrust her majesty.

‘Twas other hands, not ours, whose heavenly light
Kindled eternal splendor in the skies;
Another whispers peace unto our minds
When darkness looms before our faltering eyes.

And listening, we somehow come to know
That in the midst of darkness, even then,
He sends the moon and stars to light our way,
And promises the sun will rise again.

“Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: 
for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.”
Isaiah 60:20
