Let me always see something beautiful everyday
Let life be interesting in every way
And when my worldly windows close
Let me wake and look at a shining robe
A robe that in cloaks a beautiful vision
Of a Saintly Man who lives in heaven
And let me find all the beautiful things
That here on earth made my heart sing
May I meet my Mother in the sky above
And all the people who on earth I loved
But for now let me always discover
Beauty under any cover
