Unnumbered sorrows, woes beyond belief,
A world aflame with hate and gray with grief, --
"Look Beyond!"

This little life so short -- a span at best,
And that short span a torment of unrest, --
"Look Beyond!"

So many gone, -- our bravest and our best, --
The Golden Fields of Youth laid bare and waste, --
"Look Beyond!"

Wrong fills the world with foul iniquity,
"God's grace is more than man's obliquity, --
Look Beyond!"

What can Life give to recompense such loss?
"Christ's path of sorrow led Him to the cross, --
Look Beyond!"

Before these horrors Hope and Love are dumb.
"Hold to your Faith! God's best is still to come, --
Look Beyond!"
