I believe in the sun though it is late in rising

I believe in love though it is absent

I believe in God though he is being silent…

I haven’t checked ‘asent’ for absent, although ‘aseint’ for absence is listed.  So working back this is an acceptable translation.  The original was an anonymous graffiti written by French Jews fleeing the Holocaust.
