Thank you for another version of this beautiful verse. My friend in
the UK has now supplied me with yet a third version, which is similar
to the first one you supplied:
To Wonder at Beauty,
Stand guard over Truth,
Look up to the Noble,
Resolve on the Good:
This leadeth man truly
To Purpose in living,
To Right in his doing,
To Peace in his feeling,
To Light in his thinking;
And teaches him trust
In the working of God,
In all that there is
In the width of the world,
In the depth of the soul.
Have a wonderful day.
