End my pain, Lord, the way spring ends winter, the way sunshine ends a rain, the way laughter reshapes the air;
~~finish my suffering, please, the way song ends silence, the way bread breaks separateness, the way a friend turns when called by name.
Strength, I need it; thanks, I have none.
~~I am weak, but You are strong.
If there be no end, then make me able;
~~and when I find no finish, make me thankful.
