To Love

When the gong resounds
and my Maker says to you,
“Awake, thy sleep is over.”
Then thou will be free
and on God thou will rejoice.

When the gong be silent
forever hold its peace
and my Maker says to me,
“I am your husband.”
then I will be free
and on God I will rejoice

I’ll sing you a lullaby
I’ll rock you to sleep
I’ll wait in silence
I’ll enjoy our Creator

My heart, my eyes,
my spirit, my mind,
is stayed on God,
my lover, my knight.

So sleep and rest,
that’s what you
ought to do the best.
