To This Nightmare I Awake

CXXX From dreamlike life I to this nightmare wake Who prayed not God my barren soul to take Amused was I of that which is at stake Refused thy truth my selfish will to break In this my guilt if only I may sweat To quench my thirst and yet would never get To drink that fount I scorned before my death Thy every word, in hell would not forget Forever damned that I may rest desire Tis always night in this eternal fire For I had thought thy way is much too dire Until the day my poor lost soul require These worms regenerate for I am not The word of truth, O please give heed and thought
