I can feel it slipping, the hurt and all the pain,
The ethereal joy within my heart;
I can feel it coming, that other-worldly stain
That means my weakened soul must now depart.
So stay with me, forgive my sins, enchant me once again,
Your touch has often in the past consoled me.
To know that it was worth it, the heartache and the pain --
As I fall into eternity, just hold me.
