O thou who hast fled away to join the ranks of those that lie within the abode of Death.
We call thee back to dwell with us again.
O thou who hast fled away o’er lofty mountain peaks, across the billows of the sea.
We call thee back to dwell with us again.
O thou who has fled away beyond the earth and sky to live within the splendour of the sun.
We call thee back to dwell with us again.

O thou who hast fled away
To bathe thyself in radiant light, whose flashing beams flow on through space in everlasting streams:
We call thee back to dwell with us again.
O thou who hast fled away towards the dread unknown.
We call thee back to dwell with us again.
O thou who hast fled away to be united with the All that is and is to be.
We call thee back to dwell with us again.
