Who Walks the World with Soul Awake

WHO WALKS THE WORLD WITH SOUL AWAKE

WHO walks the world with soul awake
 Finds beauty everywhere;
Though labor be his portion,
 Though sorrow be his share,
He looks beyond obscuring clouds,
 Sure that the light is there!


And if, the ills of mortal life
 Grown heavier to bear,
Doubt come with its perplexities
 And whisper of despair,
He turns with love to suffering men—
 And, lo! God, too, is there.
