And so, she searched within a long-forgotten corner of her soul
for wisdom of God’s universe to share;
and plumbed the guarded memories within her heart
for moments filled with love that she had gathered there.

And in her mind there dawned the thought:
How great and tender is God’s grace and care
to give us Memory to lift us up
when life becomes too difficult to bear.

And so she took a long and thirsty drink
from out the pure and endless wellspring deep within.
And there she found the strength to rise,
and walk her path upon the Earth again.
