I will lend to you for a while, a Saint Bernard pup, God said,
For you to love her while she lives and mourn for her when she’s dead.
Maybe for eight or ten years, or maybe two or three
But will you, until I call her back, take care of her for me?

She’ll bring her charms to gladden you and should her stay be brief
You’ll always have her memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise she will stay, since all from earth return
But there are lessons taught below I want this Saint pup to learn.

I’ve looked the whole world over in search of teachers true
And from the folk that crowd’s life’s land I have chosen you
Now will you give her all your love Nor think the labour vain,
Nor hate me when I come to take my Saint back again.

I fancied that I heard them say “Dear lord thy will be done”
For all the joys this Saint pup will bring, the risk of grief we’ll run
We’ll shelter her with tenderness, we’ll love her while we may
And for the happiness we’ve known forever grateful stay.

But should you call her back much sooner than we’ve planned,
We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes, to try and understand.
If, by our love, we’ve managed, your wishes to achieve,
In memory of this Beautiful Saint we loved, to help us while we grieve.

When your loving & faithful bundle departs this world of strife,
Maybe I’ll send another Saint pup, for you to love it all its’ life.
