Thou hidden Life of faithful souls- Thou Light

Of that mysterious inner world of thought,

Oh give us grace to follow Thee aright,

From cross and toil and sorrow shrinking not;

Content to be but little known,

Content to wander on alone;

Here- hidden inwardly in Thee;

There- Light in thine own Light to be.

from THY HIDDEN ONES by C. F. Richter, 1711. Translated Emma Frances Bevan, 1899.
