The man of hope is a watchman
He is stationed in the night’s darkness but the unique brightness made his soul sing. The man of hope, is a watchman.
The man of hope is a shout,
He announces the day while nothing shows it
He proclaims foot prints when all appears deserted.
He shouts that Someone is coming when one no longer expects anything.
The man of hope is a shout.
The man of hope is a canticle
He sings loudly in order to wake the dead.
He has nothing else to do on man’s earth
than to spend his life recounting yours.
Man of hope, the Lord, is your Canticle.
