Pain comes in many forms, don't let it beat you!
No more will I curse the day in growls and gripes
No more will My hours end with suffer and strife
No longer writhing through my waking time
No longer will you hear the charge of my cry,

Pain is but an echo reverberating through my life
Pain is a memory I won't carry into enternal light
Pain no longer calls me to join in his merry making
Pain no longer haunts me, my hands no longer shaking,

The joy of living never lost its pleasure as I face myfinal sleep
The joy of loving those I treasure kept me on my feet
The life I had was hard but on this I won't dwell
The life I had was lovely and I hope I lived it well

The agony, though relentless, never stood s chance
The agony not as strong as I, failed his devious plan
The wounds all healed though they left their mark
The wounds could not best me and never reached my heart,

No longer will I curse the day and end in fits and shivers
My foe no longer boasts his might, today I am the victor
