In human goodness puts its trust,
And his the keen, satiric touch
That shrivels falsehood into dust.
In strife with many a valiant foe;
But laughter winged his polished dart,
And kindness tempered every blow.
Lord God, may I not forget that it is in the light, and not the darkness, that my work is revealed. I beseech thee to pour in thy light as I plan my life, and open my heart and mind for the reception of thy truth. Amen.
