    Life and light and joy are found
    In the presence of the lord:
    Life with richest blessing crowned,
    Light from many fountains poured—
    Life and light and holy joy,
    None can darken or destroy.


    Bring to him life’s brightest hours,
    He will make them still more bright;
    Give to him your noblest powers,
    He will hallow all your might;
    Come to him with eager quest,
    You shall hear his high behest.


    All your questions large and deep,
    All the open thoughts of youth,
    Bring to him, and you shall reap
    All the harvest of his truth;
    You shall find in that great store
    Largest love and wisest lore.


    Then when comes life’s wider sphere
    And its busier enterprise,
    You shall find him ever near,
    Looking, with approving eyes,
    On all honest work and true
    His dear servants’ hands can do.
