    A sanction to live
    We live every day dying with hope
    With mysteries and misfortune still we cope
    They plan us doom to be with death
    We are sanction by grace to live on earth
    Days of anguish of shall soon reverse
    For pains of memory of such shall soon depart
    We will be favoured without need to plead
    Many dear plans but we are sanction to live
