Yet, with your eyes lifted high,
And outstretched hands that express
Deep desire to draw nigh.
You say how much you love me,
And what for me you'd do.
Works so great I can not see.
Empty words ring untrue.
You leave me standing so alone,
My loved ones you beguile.
And when you feel that I am gone
You lose your empty smile.
Laws and love you strongly teach,
And yet you do not see
What you do, my brethren, to each,
So you do to me.
