All those nights in agony
Your crying made me steel
I heard your pain
It helped me fight and live
I scrapped each day and fought my way

Hearing your courage song
Within my heart I knew
My courage came from you
Too young to know so many things
Your will taught me to survive

Out of poverty to serve
Poor and helpless souls
Through all the nights of pain, alone
I sang your courage song

Now your life is nearing Him
Days are short and hard
But just remember every day
You shared His courage song.
