When Death Must Come at Christmastime
|Music: Fugue in G
By Dimitri Shostakovich. Sequenced by J. Marques.
|When death must come at
There is a special grief,
A mourning that must mix with joy,
A pain that must be brief.
There is an anguish underneath
But life must bubble on its way
And, like the Virgin, we must smile
