Shame on me!


The days have passed,
The time is passing by,
I am still asleep.
Slowly, slowly, very steadily
The gold is slipping out,
And I, setting them free.
Unable to hold, unable to save.
Alas! What am I doing?

Shame on me, shame on me!
O, Lord! O the Saviour! Shame on me!
Shame on me the people! Laugh at me!
Shame on me, the Earth! Shame on me!

Still, firmly I stand.
In Thy Holy name.
When the world laughs at me,
When the cosmos shames.
Still, I smile, but cry;
Still, I live, to try.
As only I know, it’s only Me.
