if I wake before I die
wonder what becomes of me
will I see You I to Eye
abiding in eternity?
will it be because I stopped trying?
will it be because I stopped lying?

if I break before I die
this thing I dread, but come it may
relations waving goodbye
as men in white lead me away

should I try harder, should I be softer?
would I be nearer if I sought farther?
would I be worthy if I were stronger?
would you come to me if I prayed longer?

if I live before I die
wonder what becomes of me
when love will transcend my fear
and all that is in harmony
is it just a dream?
a sad misguided scheme?
