Written by Barbara Ann Briggs

 

In my life

Have I known

Both dawn and darkness

Ecstasy and torment

Have I tasted from Thy hand

And seeds of bitterness and love

Did I see grow up within me

And now I stand

At the gateway to Thy kingdom

Naked and alone

My body covered over

With the thorny roses of my life

And I do bleed into the holy river

Of Thy infinite Love
