When we lose you

Jesus, 
When we lose you   
In our troubles,
May we search until
We find your peace.

Spirit,
When we lose you 
In our sorrow,
May we search until
We share your love.

Mary,
When we lose you
In our sickness,
May we search until 
We know your grace. 

Father,
When we lose you
In our darkness, 
May we search
Until we see your face.

Worth all the pain,

Will go back to the earth,

My soul will lose itself 
In you, again.
