Did we but love, 

Our love might ease this parting of the ways

Did we but hope,

Then hope might lift us through the darkening days

Could we believe,

Belief might make us fear the ending less

Could we but pray,

We might have just one prayer of some success

If we had care,

Then one bright light the tunnel’s end might show

If we had sight,

We might see in the dark a candle glow

Could we find faith,

Then in that faith we might discern a chance

Could we find calm,

Perhaps we would find healing in a glance

Did we have peace,

Perhaps our fear of death would fade and die 

Did we but love,

Why then we’d have the strength to say goodbye
