      Dear Jan,

      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.

      Marcus
