thief of sorrows, come


What earnest longing cannot prove,

what upright strife ne'er shall build,

a burglary of burden has here

fulfilled forgotten promise and 

restored a poisoned will.


So rob me of what is not real,

and forge a quiet, tender steel. 

Come, Thief of Sorrows,

come, King, and claim.

Come down to us, this curtain rend!

With angst abscond,

and then bestow

an honest path that once did wend.

Thief or Sorrows, come
