Lift, light

Lift, light, rise, spring, burst
I am nothing, I die.

Lift, glow, arise, renew, reveal
I am nothing, I die.

Sky, fir, cone, phase, flight
I am nothing, I die.

Wheat, wist, leaf, tone, meal
I am nothing, I die.

May the Lord grant us a restful night,
and a peaceful death.

It is, a bit. But then there's a hopeful couplet at the end.
