My Father

Justina Sviatodukhova 1978 (Sumy region)

My love to You is so strong,
my dear Father, my Creator!
You planned to save me and it’s true
when I was crying, I was helpless...

You gave me strength to go on
when life was black and full of sorrow,
but You believed that I would sing a happy song
and that my life would change
and sun would brighten my tomorrow.

A happy song is now my life
and sun is shining brightly on my road
because Your love can everything,
and I survived, and overcame the pain, forgot the sorrow.

I know we will never be apart,
Your Light will always be with me consoling my soul,
Your Star will show the way leading to Light,
the world of love and happiness, and truth - Eternity!
