O the sparkling Earth awaits your light
That guides it to heaven's sea.
O my shining heart blooms in the cold night to greet you.
Take my evil globe and spin it, O Lord,
I, a sinner, yearn to see the lighted universe, again.
Take my heart and caress it, O Lord,
It will be tamed as the palm of your kind hand rest on it.
