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.
