Shall I Wake Up No.2


Shall I wake up
from horror and fright
no better at home
I'll stay if I might.

More darkness at home
I'll stay on my own.

Waking up is my fear now
there's no turning back.

At home
my cards show me shame
no glory, no fame.

Darkness is all I see
so this is where I shall be
this dream is my home
this place I shall stay.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
