A funeral hymn for comfort in upsetting times

I Watch The Sunrise

I watch the sunrise lighting the sky,
Casting its shadows near.
And on this morning bright though it be,
I feel those shadows near me.But you are always close to me
Following all my ways.
May I be always close to you
Following all your ways, Lord.I watch the sunlight shine through the clouds,
Warming the earth below.
And at the mid-day, life seems to say:
I feel your brightness near me.For you are always close to me
Following all my ways.
May I be always close to you
Following all your ways, Lord.I watch the sunset fading away,
Lighting the clouds with sleep.
And as the evening closes its eyes,
I feel your presence near me.For you are always close to me
Following all my ways.
May I be always close to you
Following all your ways, Lord.I watch the moonlight guarding the night,
Waiting till morning comes.
The air is silent, earth is at rest
Only your peace is near me.Yes, you are always close to me
Following all my ways.
May I be always close to you
Following all your ways, Lord.
