Inspired by St. Ignatius' Rule of Discernment 321.8

We are to be patient during times of desolation, knowing that consolation will come again.


The sun is always setting
The dawn never comes
Quicksand is overdue

Please be patient with me

An unhappy ending
A time of decay
Restless and alone

Please be patient with me

Don’t go too fast
Don’t go too slow
Peace will come again

The path that you’re choosing
The road up ahead
Is darkness turned to light

Please be patient with me
