I pick up by the handful
The somber heap at my feet
Eyes closed to see the hopeful 
Trusting my deepest instinct 

I pick up by the handful
The somber heap at my feet
Eyes closed to see the hopeful 
Trusting my deepest instinct 

But I go on, 
Dawning light, 
Task of hope 

?
Dawning light, 
Task of hope 
?

At last dare to raise my eyes, 
I saw the ship in the stars 
Strong of glittering fleet, 
Bringing light to the new born 

I pick up by the handful
The somber heap at my feet
Eyes closed to see the hopeful 
Trusting my deepest instinct 

At last dare to raise my eyes, 
I saw the ship in the stars 
Strong of glittering fleet, 
Bringing light to the new born 

In a dawn light, 
Task of hope, 
These are stars
