God ever seeks His children's bliss,
 Appeals to them; and, rightly heard,
The music of creation is
 The echo of His Word.

But when the child has learnt his part,
 The echo is an answer strong;
A prayer up-springing from the heart
 That blossoms in a song.

Christ is the Living Word of God,
 His Poem and His Prophecy;
The homeward way His Feet have trod
 Mankind must travel by.
